Friday (SEPT. 18th)
John 15:13, John 3:16-17 “Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. *For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.”
Every sincere human being acknowledges the nature of sin that we embody and how powerless we are to overcome it. As a result, there is a void and a sense of separation from God that accompanies this inability for self redemption. Every man in this state also acknowledges that what we deserve is hatred, anger and destruction from God. Instead, God chooses to love man and relentlessly pursue man; to save him and not to
In His infinite mercy, God lovingly chose to embody flesh and to suffer and to die; just to save man. God did this through Jesus. God did not send Jesus to condemn the world. He sent Jesus so that the world through Him might be saved. In the Good News Bible, Romans 3:23-24 says, everyone has sinned and is far away from God’s saving presence. But by the free gift of God’s grace all are put right with him through Christ Jesus, who sets them free. The free gift of salvation and peace with God is received simply by believing in Jesus. When any man or woman chooses to believe in Jesus, Jesus comes into their hearts and begins to live His life in them and reveal more and more of God’s love and life to them. No man who acknowledges his helpless state without God and hears this love message should opt to ignore such love and salvation. If you haven’t received this love and salvation freely offered to you by God, you can do it right now. If you know someone who needs this love and salvation, please share this message with them right now.
Prayer Focus: Meditate on God’s great love for you and thank Him for sending Jesus to save you, live in you and give you a relationship with Himself.
Grace for Dominion…
