Today’s Key Scripture
“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 95:4-7, 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 youth 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, desperate individuals can acknowledge their hopeless eternal state without God, and offer a prayer, crying out for God’s mercy and forgiveness from sin. As souls repent, the greatest miracle available to mankind takes place as they are cleansed of all sin and born again.
Salvation and forgiveness of sin are priceless gifts and treasures from God Almighty. They are free gifts available to all. The moment we 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 with this cherished gift as I go through this day. When I am tempted to give up or give in, help me 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.
