Tonight we went to a concert to hear a wonderful Christian singer named Laura Story.  She wrote a song called "Mighty to Save" and it is my all time favorite worship praise song.  When I hear this song I get teary eyed it is just so beautiful. Some of the words to Laura's song are, "Savior, He can move the mountain, my God is mighty to save, He is mighty to save.  Forever, author of salvation.  He rose and conquered the grave, Jesus conquered the grave."
When you think about it "Forever, author of salvation. He rose and conquered the grave...."  Jesus is the author of salvation and many times people will try to change His message by re-writing it to suit themselves.  Nevertheless, Jesus is still forever the author of salvation.  Jesus says in the Bible, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life.  The only way to the Father is through me." John 14:6.

You can listen to Laura Story's music on UTube and Facebook. 

Let's pray:  Dear Lord Jesus, I am so grateful that You are forever the author of salvation!  For You truly are Mighty to Save and You have saved me.  I pray that You will use this blog to save others and bring joy into their lives.  I say these things in Jesus' name. Amen.

Truth and Light

1 John 1:5-10, NIV, "This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you:  God is light; in him there is no darkness at all.  If we claim to have fellowship with him yet walk in darkness, we lie and do not live by the truth.  But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from every sin.  If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us.  If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.  If we claim we have not sinned, we make him out to be a liar and his word has no place in our lives."

1 John 2: 1-2, NIV, "My dear children, I write this to you so that you will not sin.  But if anybody does sin, we have one who speaks to the Father in our defense--Jesus Christ, the Righteous One.  He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world."

Light and truth go hand in hand.  You cannot have one without the other.  If you don't have the truth found only in the Bible then you can't walk in the light.  Many people think they have "the truth", and think they are walking in the light, but they are not and are sadly being deceived. Don't be one of them.  Read the Bible, and ask the Lord to show you the truth.  I promise you He will.

Salvation is such a wonderful gift.  If you belong to Jesus you will be walking in truth and light. He loves you all so much. 

Let's pray:  Dear Lord Jesus.  Thank you for Your Word and for Your gift of salvation.  I pray for all those who are deceived and I ask that You would open their eyes and show them the truth.  Thank You Father for being so faithful and never leaving us even when we have left You.  Your love is unending and I for one am grateful for Your sacrifice and love.  I say these things in Jesus' name. Amen.

9/11 Cross

Matthew 5:43-45 "You have heard that it was said, 'Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.' But I tell you: Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven.  He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous."

John 16:33, "I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace.  In this world you will have trouble.  But take heart! I have overcome the world."

Let's pray:  Dear Lord Jesus, I pray for all those families that lost loved ones on 9/11/2001.  Please give them peace, hope and healing.  I pray for all those widows, widowers and children who lost spouses and parents that day that you would provide for them and heal them. I pray for all those unsaved people that Your love would touch their hearts and that they would choose Jesus. Please heal our land Lord Jesus.  I say these things in Jesus' name. Amen.

"Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see." Hebrews 11:1 NIV

"By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God's command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible." Hebrews 11:3 NIV

Let's pray:  Dear Lord Jesus,  I pray for everyone reading this from all over the world.  I pray that the Lord will give you the gift of faith.  I pray for strengthened faith.  I pray for those who are having financial troubles that You, Lord would provide.  I pray for those whose health is failing that You would heal and restore.  I pray for those unsaved that they would ask You to show them the truth, and in so doing they would choose Your gift of salvation.  I say these things in Jesus' name amen.
