Today's Verse: 1 Corinthians 15:2 (KJV)

Saturday, April 9, 2005

By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.
— 1 Corinthians 15:2 (KJV)

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

What saves us? What God did for us in Jesus! Let's make a commitment to let nothing make us relinquish our trust and dependency upon that hope, that Gospel by which we are saved. There is no other name, no other Gospel, no other message that can give us salvation. (see Acts 4:12; Gal. 1:3-9; Col. 2:6-16) We don't need to add anything else to it. We must never let anyone take anything away from it. Let's hold firmly to this faith, this trust, in God's grace given to us in Jesus!

My Prayer...

Father, I trust in no other God but you. I trust in no other Gospel but the story of your love and grace in Jesus. As the old hymn so beautifully puts it, I ask dear Father that I may "never, ever, outlive my love for Thee." In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
