Something emailed to me by my Uncle Bud, who is a retired Baptist minister and the youngest brother of my mom's. A family of fifteen kids!
Written by Jody Wade:
"Therefore, since we have been made right in God's sight by faith, we have peace with God because of what Jesus Christ our Lord has done for us. Because of our faith, Christ has brought us into this place of undeserved privilege where we now stand, and we confidently and joyfully look forward to sharing God's glory."
~ Romans 5:1 NLT
"Faith that is motivated by Jesus Christ and His Finished Work of Calvary, allows us to be made right with God. It's a gift that He bestows upon us; not because of our good works or righteousness, but because we have repented and trusted in the Savior. Joy surely comes in the morning when we have Jesus as the number One spot where He belongs. Be blessed dear brothers and sisters. Be joyful about your relationship with Him; for He desires for us to be a light in this dark world."
Dear Father God, thank You for sending Jesus into our world and lives. Thank You that You traded His safety and security, for us. What kind of love! You are our joy, our peace! Today we are planning to jump for joy! In the Name of Your Son, Amen.
