Without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

Our relationship with God is built on the atoning sacrifice of Jesus and our acceptance of that sacrifice through obedient faith (Romans 1:5, 10:9-13, 16:26; Colossians 2:12-15). Such faith trusts that God not only exists but also personally cares about us and our desire to know him. Our Father eagerly longs to bless those who seek him. What we find when we do seek him, however, is that all other blessings pale compared to knowing and being known by the eternal, immortal, and only true Lord, our God!

My Prayer...

Holy God, I do seek to know you better. I believe in you and what you have done to bless me in Jesus and through your indwelling presence in the Holy Spirit. Please make your presence known more powerfully in my life and the life of your Church. In Jesus' name, I pray. Amen.
