Sunday, August 29, 2004

"But what about you?" he asked. "Who do you say I am?" Peter answered, "You are the Christ."
— Mark 8:29

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

The sweetest confession we will ever make is this: I believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and I want him to be Lord of my life. Let's say it again, out loud, to the glory of God the father. Then, let's commit that before the year ends, we're going to help someone else come to say it for the first time!

My Prayer...

Thank you, Lord God Almighty, for having a plan that brought me your Messiah, Jesus. I do believe, dear God, that he is your Son and I want him to be my Lord, today, and for the rest of my days. In the name of Jesus, your Son and my Savior, I pray. Amen.
