Key Thought

If you ask people today who they think Jesus is, you will get a myriad of answers. Many folks don't know and quite a few don't care. The lost world's greatest needs are for Jesus' followers both to know who he really is and to demonstrate it in our lives!

Today's Prayer

O Father in heaven, help us — and especially help me — better demonstrate who Jesus is to those around us. In Jesus' name, I pray. Amen.
