Thoughts on Today's Verse...

Some talk about "Mother Nature," but Christians should realize that Scripture identifies Jesus as the power behind the order and processes of our universe and the One Who sustains our world with his powerful word. Not only did he save us by the sacrifice on the Cross, but he now sustains our universe with his powerful words of loving grace. He sustains us spiritually through his words of teaching. And this Word, who speaks to us and to our universe, is the essence of God himself. He purified us from our sins, failures, and shortcomings while he was on earth and now reigns in glory until he returns to take us home!

My Prayer...

Please be with me, Almighty God, as I commit to live for you based on Jesus' words. Please help me as I seek to understand it and apply Jesus' teaching to my daily life. More than that, dear Father, please help me come to know you and your will through Jesus' words and his actions while on earth. In Jesus' name, I pray. Amen.
