Lord, I pray that people will come to know You, the head of the body of the church. May people come out of the mindset that their religion can save them, but through You, Christ, alone. You are the only way to life eternal in heaven, and people of all Christian religions can know this special truth if they simply read the Bible. Your words are true and faithful and will lead anyone, like You did for me, to the truth. I also once believed that Mormonism was the one true church, but all their false beliefs crashed down on me when I opened up Your Word, in the Bible, and read it like a child. You opened my eyes to see that salvation only comes through You and not a religion. I had believed in a lie for so many years, to think that my faith was better than others. What mattered was that people knew You for salvation and not if a religion is true. Thank You for leading me out of this false church and into Your true church. I was once blinded, but now I see that people in many good Bible believing churches can be saved. Salvation does not depend on a building that we go to, but what You have set apart for us in Your church. You are the head and we, being many, are Your members. Some being more faithful than others, but we all make up a body of believers that just want to live out of our faith. I know that You are my God and nothing else can trump this. I love You Lord. May I always reflect that love for You in the people I am around. Help them see this love through me. My desire is to follow Your example, for it is leads to salvation. I praise You God. I trust in You. Amen.
Colossians 1:21,22 (KJV)
21 And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled
22 In the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight:
Jesus is the only way to heaven. Salvation does not come through a church, but through Him alone. Do not be deceived.
There are people that say that salvation only comes by being baptized in their church, but these are all lies. Only Jesus saves!
We as believers in Christ, are the members of His body. Each person has a gift from God, in which the Lord is able to use in His church. Continue Reading
Oh Lord, I pray that people will have Your protection in their life. The same way that You have come into my life and have given me a way out of temptation, may others also find the same strength. I know how damaging it is to fall victim to sin on a regular basis, as it draws us further and further away from You, until we are no longer interested in what You have to offer. This is hard to admit Lord, but I know that this has happened to me many times over. Oh, how sorry I am for giving into the flesh, instead of seeking You when I needed You most. I gave into what I know is wrong and I know how this must have affected You. As you grieved for me, I also grieve for how this affected You and our relationship. Truly, my heart loves You and I know that it is hard to see this when I sin. Lord, I don't wish to have any more barriers between us anymore. Sin has taken a toll on my life and I wish that this will all change now. I confess my sins openly Lord. Cleanse me and fill me up with Your strength. May I become strong in what You desire in my life. Lead me away from sin and into Your love. I desire what is good and what is holy and that can only come from You. Cast out any darkness that is left in my life and lead me fully into Your light. I love You more than anything that the world has to offer me. There is no temporary satisfaction in You. Everything I thought was good is flipped upside down when You are in my life. There is so more joy and happiness when I am on Your righteous path. Nothing temporary is found here, but eternal joy. Thank You Jesus. Oh, how I need You, all the days of my life. You are my King and I worship You. Take my life, for it is Yours. Amen.
Ephesians 6:11-13 (KJV)
11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
Unless you are built upon the armor of God, you will never fully resist temptation. Pray that you may be strong in the Lord.
If you are wondering how pornographic temptations begins, it is simple. All Satan has to do is use an AD with an image and some perverse words in it and he has his victim hook and sinker. Continue Reading
Oh Lord, I pray that we will get our priorities in order and desire to be used in Your kingdom. I know that You desire to lead us from the darkness of this world and to lead us into Your light. We just need to decide that doing Your will is most important. Then will You come first in our lives. Thank You Lord for teaching me this. I was so lost and then You pulled me out of the mess I was in. All it took was faith and a desire to confess my sins and You responded. What a great God you are to rescue me from a life of sin. I have never experienced the kind of love that you have showed me. How merciful you have been for me over the years. I didn't deserve this kind of love and care, but You showed it to me just the same. I never knew there was joy like this to be found until You came into my life. Thanks You Lord. All I desire now is to follow You. May Your light shine brightly in my life, that others may see the joy I found in You. Use me for Your kingdom, that many more souls can be saved. I wish to do more than believe, but do as You say. You are my God and all my trust is in You. I love You. Amen.
Ephesians 5:1,2 (KJV)
1 Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children;
2 And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour.
This life is like a fleeting moment. It comes and goes before we expect it to. What matters is if Jesus has saved us.
Stand out above the rest and do not fall into the wrong crowds. So repent of your sins and allow Jesus to light up your life.
If you want to know what a true stand out is in life, then look no further than Christ. Jesus, our Savior, lived a perfect, selfless life. Continue Reading
Ephesians 1:3,4 (KJV)
3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:
4 According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:
Seek Jesus each day and allow His holiness to penetrate your life. Only then can you be used by Him to reach the lost.
