Thoughts on Today's Verse...

Jesus came to save the world. Jesus came to save you. Jesus came to save me. Why? Because of the Father's love for us! Don't let human commentary on this clear truth distort the reality and depth of God's love for you! God sent the Son to save the world — that includes saving you and me — and he did it through Jesus' life, death, and resurrection! And we are invited to accept that gracious offer of salvation through our faith in Jesus and turning our lives around to follow and obey him (Ephesians 2:1-10).

My Prayer...

Holy and Righteous Father, thank you for your love. I know I didn't earn or deserve it, but thank you. Until I see you face to face and express my appreciation and praise for you in your presence, please know my heartfelt gratitude and my deep and abiding joy because of your plan, your Son, and your salvation. I thank you in the name of Jesus, my Savior. Amen.
