Today's Verse: Ephesians 1:7 (KJV)

Friday, April 4, 2014

In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace.
— Ephesians 1:7 (KJV)

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

Forgiveness! What a sweet and precious gift. What we were powerless to fix, make up or pay for, God did for us in Jesus. With him, each day is a fresh start and rebirth of Springtime. But my, such a terrible cost he paid to give it to us!

My Prayer...

Thank you, Father, for your anguish and cost to forgive my sins by the blood of your Son. I refuse to take lightly the cost of my sin and will live for your glory in appreciation of your grace. In the name of him who sacrificed all for my salvation I pray. Amen.
