Verse of the Day

"For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved"
John 3:17 KJV

This verse is not as well known as John 3:16 but as is all scripture it is significant. So many view God as an iron fisted tyrant who just wants to rain on their fun but not so. God loves us and wants to restore us back to Himself!
"And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies because of his Spirit who lives in you."
Romans 8:11 NIV
"He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake."
Psalm 23:3 KJV

As this verse points out, "he leadeth me"! In and of ourselves we cannot and will not follow the paths of righteousness but with a relationship with God through Jesus Christ we can be led on that path.
"Make no friendship with an angry man; and with a furious man thou shalt not go:"
Proverbs 22:24 KJV

"Do not make friends with a hot-tempered person, do not associate with one easily angered."
Proverbs 22:24 NIV

Enough said!
"But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin."
1 John 1:7 KJV
1 Peter 2:24
"He himself bore our sins" in his body on the cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; "by his wounds you have been healed."

This is the good news of the gospel! Jesus paid it all for us, Jesus is the ONLY way to God the Father!
2 Corinthians 10:5 KJV
"Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ:"

Our thoughts are where Satan attacks us first, that is why it is so critical to be careful about what we see and hear, the garbage of this world going in will yield garbage thoughts which will yield garbage actions!
Proverbs 10:16-17 NIV
16"The wages of the righteous is life, but the earnings of the wicked are sin and death"

17"Whoever heeds discipline shows the way to life, but whoever ignores correction leads others astray"

Warnings here that we all should take seriously! Amen
Psalm 106:1
"Praise the LORD. Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever."

This verse about being thankful is spot on as we are about to celebrate Thanksgiving. God is the source for every good gift! Amen
I hope you all have a most blessed Thanksgiving weekend, take a moment and thank the One who is so good.
Psalm 138:3 NIV
"When I called, you answered me; you greatly emboldened me."

David found himself in many tight spots, sometimes caused by others and sometimes as a consequence of his own actions. Regardless, like David if we will call on the Lord He will answer and we will be strengthened! Amen
