I will hasten and not delay to obey your commands.
—Psalm 119:60

Thoughts on Today’s Verse…

Obedience is faith put into practice. Without action, James 2 reminds us that our faith is not real. So without arguing, let’s quickly obey, even when we don’t fully understand why because we’ve seen God’s love demonstrated to us in Jesus, and we’ve seen the protection that his will has for us when we obey him.

My Prayer…

O God, give me a heart that is quick to obey and a faith that is quick to express itself in action. I want to please you with my words and thoughts, but even more Father, I want to live a life full of your character, wisdom, and grace. Help me to quickly obey your voice. In the name of Christ Jesus I pray. Amen.

He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.
—1 John 5:12

Thoughts on Today’s Verse…

This statement is both a reminder of God’s glorious grace and also of our need to share that grace with others. Life is such a precious gift, it would be a shame for anyone we know and love to miss out. God gave up the life of his Son so that in finding him, we too could share in his life.

My Prayer…

Father of all nations, resurrect in your people a desire to spread your grace to every language, tribe, nation, and people. Empower us with your Spirit so that we will speak the Gospel of Jesus with boldness and respect to a world who does not know him. Use us to help others come to life in the Son! Through the name of Jesus your Son, we pray. Amen.

To me, to live is Christ and to die is gain.
—Philippians 1:21

Thoughts on Today’s Verse…

The truth is often as simple as it is sweet — if Jesus is our life, then our lives have no end. Death does not strip life from us, but ushers us into life in Jesus’ very presence!

My Prayer…

Eternal God, thank you for sending Jesus to show me your love and thank you for sending him again soon to take me home. He is my anchor in the storms of life and my light in the darkest nights reminding me that you love me with an undying love. In the name of Jesus, the Resurrection and the Life, I pray. Amen.

“Let him who boasts boast in the Lord.” For it is not the one who commends himself who is approved, but the one whom the Lord commends.
—2 Corinthians 10:17-18

Thoughts on Today’s Verse…

We live in a world with skewed values, false promises and fleeting fame. What can we boast in other than the steadfastness of the Lord’s love, the incredible riches of the Lord’s grace, the incomparable supply of the Lord’s blessings, the sweetness of the Lord’s people, the mercy of the Lord’s plan for our salvation, the promise of the Lord’s tomorrow, the…..? What other meaningful boast is there than the Lord and his eternal grace?

My Prayer…

Lord of majesty and mercy, every good and enduring thing in my life I have because of you. While these words are simple, they are heartfelt. In Jesus’ name, thank you!

Since we have these promises, dear friends, let us purify ourselves from everything that contaminates body and spirit, perfecting holiness out of reverence for God.
—2 Corinthians 7:1

Thoughts on Today’s Verse…

In a world so full of distractions and temptations, purity is difficult. Even more than difficult, the call to purity often goes forgotten and ignored. “Cheap grace” (Jude 4) is substituted for a call to passionate living. While we never want to give in to a works righteousness, we also must remember that impurity through laziness or lack of commitment or simple rebellion are contaminating to those claiming to be Christians and ruin our influence before the watching world.

My Prayer…

Purify my heart, my life, my body, my influence, O God. May my words and my thoughts be blameless in your sight. I want to be holy as you are holy and honor you as only you are worthy of honor. You alone are God! Through Jesus I ask it. Amen.

Verse of the Day for Monday, August 15, 2022

If we live, we live to the Lord: and if we die, we die to the Lord. So, whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord.
—Romans 14:8

Thoughts on Today’s Verse…

One of the incredible realizations we have as Christians is that our relationship with the Lord is eternal. As we seek after him, he is always there and no one can separate us from his love. Even when we die, we go to “be with the Lord.” When we sleep in death, we are still “in the Lord.” When he returns in glory we will go to “be with the Lord forever.” Everything we have on earth is temporary except our love for the Lord Jesus, our praise of God through him, and our friends with whom we share that love and praise!

My Prayer…

Almighty God, thank you so much for binding yourself to our world in Jesus and binding me close to you through his lordship in my life. I look forward to the day when the Lord I kneel to worship today will be recognized by all the living and the dead as the One True Lord. I commit to live this day to honor him, and I know dear Father, that by honoring him I honor you. I praise and thank you for the gift of Jesus’ eternal and abiding lordship in the name of the Christ my Lord. Amen.

These are the words of the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the ruler of God’s creation. … “Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him, and he with me.”
—Revelation 3:14, 20

Thoughts on Today’s Verse…

It has always fascinated me that this verse has often been cited by those calling others to conversion when it is primarily written to a lukewarm church and her members, needing to rekindle their love relationship to the Lord. As believers, we need to ask the Lord Jesus into our hearts, lives, and churches. It’s not that he’s not there, it’s just that he awaits our invitation — he will not barge in. He only inhabits hearts into which he has been invited!

Video Commentary…

My Prayer…

Holy Lord and Savior, I know you long to share your presence and fellowship with me. I know you are nearby as I draw each breath. But I confess that I am often unaware, and even sometimes unappreciative of your presence. I ask you this day to come into my heart and fill my life with your presence, comfort, and power. I want my life to be lived for you and with you. Holy and Almighty God, thank you for providing Jesus as my Lord and Savior. In his name I offer my thanks and praise. Amen.

We are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
—Ephesians 2:10

Thoughts on Today’s Verse…

The Psalmist reminded us that we are fearfully and wonderfully made and God has something definite planned for us to do while we are here. We display his craftsmanship and skill when we intentionally live for him and not like the rest of the world.

My Prayer…

Master, teach me to recognize your opportunities and your will when they come into my life. I want to live for you without reservation. I pray for boldness to not be shy in sharing my faith. I pray for patience as I wait for folks to respond. I pray for protection on those close to coming to Christ. I pray not for me but for your Kingdom to be displayed in my life. In the name of Jesus I pray. Amen.
