Today's Verse: Romans 5:9-10

Friday, January 22, 2021

Since we have now been justified by his blood, how much more shall we be saved from God's wrath through him! For if, when we were God's enemies, we were reconciled to him through the death of his Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through his life!
— Romans 5:9-10

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

Jesus did more than die for our sins; he lives as resurrected Lord. So if God would empty heaven of his Son, let him die on the cross, and then raise him from the dead to save us, just think what God has in store for us now that he has saved us! When it comes to Jesus' saving power and God's amazing grace, we haven't seen anything, yet!

My Prayer...

Holy LORD, I look forward to the day that I get to see you and experience your grace in all of its glory. Inspire courage in me today, so that I can confidently face the challenges in my path and live faithfully before others. Father, I do believe that the best of what Jesus wants to do in me lies ahead, so use me to your glory. In Jesus' name. Amen.
