Scripture of the Day - June 7, 2021 - Philippians 1:12-14

“Now I want you to know, brothers and sisters, that what has happened to me has actually served to advance the gospel. As a result, it has become clear throughout the whole palace guard and to everyone else that I am in chains for Christ. And because of my chains, most of the brothers and sisters have become confident in the Lord and dare all the more to proclaim the gospel without fear.”

Scripture of the Day - June 5, 2021 - 1 Chronicles 28:20

God is with you - today and every day. You have no reason not to be strong and courageous. You have no reason to fear. God will deliver.

“David also said to Solomon his son, “Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Do not be afraid or discouraged, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you until all the work for the service of the temple of the Lord is finished.”

Scripture of the Day - June 4, 2021 - Acts 3:19-21

Give your sins up to God and you will be forgiven. Every time. Without question.

“Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord, and that he may send the Messiah, who has been appointed for you—even Jesus. Heaven must receive him until the time comes for God to restore everything, as he promised long ago through his holy prophets.”

Scripture of the Day - June 3, 2021 - Mark 11:25

Forgiveness is a key component in faith, yet it is so difficult in practice. I struggle to understand how we are all forgiven by God so easily when it is so hard for us to forgive others. We seek retribution for the slightest issues. We want “payback” for the driver that was rude on the way to work. We carry pain, fear, and anger with us everywhere we go. Forgiveness removes all of these problems. Simple, but not easy.

“And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive them, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins.”

Scripture of the Day - June 2, 2021 - Psalms 29:11

“The Lord gives strength to his people; the Lord blesses his people with peace.”

Scripture of the Day - June 1, 2021 - Romans 8:38-39

Scripture of the Day - May 31, 2021 - John 20:30-31

All you have to do is believe. That’s it. It’s really that simple.

Scripture of the Day - May 29, 2021 - 2 Corinthians 12:9-10

Throughout the Bible, God makes examples of those who seem weak yet have great faith. He continually shows that with faith, weakness is irrelevant.

‘But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.’

Scripture of the Day - May 24. 2021 - Isaiah 40:31
