Today’s Key Scripture (all references NKJV unless otherwise noted):
God is the best, High King over all the gods. In one hand he holds deep caves and caverns, in the other hand grasps the high mountains. He made Ocean—he owns it! His hands sculpted Earth! So come, let us worship: bow before him, on your knees before God, who made us! Oh yes, He’s our God, and we’re the people He pastures, the flock He feeds. Drop everything and listen, listen as He speaks:
— Psalm 95:4-11, MSG
No greater miracle has ever been recorded than the miraculous transformation that takes place at salvation, as the rebellious heart of a penitent man, woman, or child is cleansed from all sin through repentance and reconciled to a right relationship with God Almighty, the Creator of all things, through Jesus Christ, His Son.
In only a moment’s time, a desperate individual can acknowledge one’s hopeless eternal state without God, and offer a prayer, crying out for God’s mercy and forgiveness from sin. As a soul repents, the greatest miracle available to mankind takes place as they are cleansed of all sin and born again.
Salvation and forgiveness of sin is a priceless gift and treasure from God Almighty. It is a priceless treasure that is freely available to all. The moment you are born again, an incredible new adventure begins. Everything is new!
How can we do less than kneel before our Lord? How can we think of spending a day, even an hour, away from His presence?
A Prayer for Today:
Lord, thank You for the priceless treasure of salvation. Grant me the grace and courage to live in accordance to this cherished gift as I go through this day. When I am tempted to give up or give in, help me to keep going in Your power. Give me a joyful spirit when everything doesn’t go my way. And may I be a living witness to those around me in every word, thought, and deed. In Jesus’ name, Amen!
