Spiritual Warfare: 'Jesus Suffered so We Could Go Home with Him'

God's Power for Our Battles — Thursday, December 29, 2022

So also Jesus suffered and died outside the city gates to make his people holy by means of his own blood. So let us go out to him, outside the camp, and bear the disgrace he bore. For this world is not our permanent home; we are looking forward to a home yet to come.
— Hebrews 13:19-21 NLT

Today's Prayer

Lord, thank You. You suffered so we could eventually be able to be in heaven with You. You bled and died to make us holy, and without You, we don’t stand a chance. When we see the pain and death all around us, we long for a better place, Lord, and we know that’s just what You have in mind for us. May that day come soon. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
