Tweet Day 231 “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” (John 14:6) Jesus is truth and He is life. You cannot know God without going through Jesus. You will search in vain for truth or for a way to know God outside of the way the Father has made for us to know him. Jesus is God’s way of access to Him. Everything knowable about God is revealed in his son Jesus. Make it a focus of your life to know Jesus, to learn about him, to make his values your values, to experience his life working in you. You will grow in his truth and flourish in his life as you know Jesus more deeply every day.
Tweet Day 230 “For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.” (John 3:17) God does not condemn, he doesn’t beat you down with guilt and shame. Jesus came into the world to save you, to forgive, and give you hope. Don’t let condemnation and shame rule your life and don’t accept the lie that condemnation comes from God. God does not condemn you, it is not in his nature. Learn to rejoice is the unconditional and guilt-free love of God. Your life will be forever changed.
Tweet Day 229 “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:16) Everything that God did for you he did because he loves you. Jesus came to the earth to became one of us and he died on the cross because he loves you. All he asks of you is that you believe in Him and that you accept his gift of life, the forgiveness of sins through his shed blood. He loves you and wants a loving relationship with you.
Tweet Day 228 “Yet you refuse to come to me to have life.” (John 5:40) There is something about our nature that runs from God, something that makes us strive to succeed in life in our own strength. Jesus confronted the people of his day because they refused to come to him for the life that he would give them. Don’t resist God and don’t work in your own strength. Turn to Jesus and find your life in him because his life brings strength for today and gives hope to tomorrow.
Tweet Day 227 “In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind.” (John 1:4) In Jesus there is life, abundant life. Through faith in Jesus we experience love, joy and peace, the things that make life rich and full. His life gives meaning and understanding to our time here on earth and assures us of eternity. Find your life in Jesus, surrender yourself to him and let him bestow his life to you; in him is life and in him is light.
Tweet Day 226 “I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full” (John 10:10) The objective of God’s grace is that we experience fullness of life. Jesus explains that this was the very reason he came, to bestow abundant life on us by his grace. Don’t miss out on the life that God wants you to enjoy, it is his gift to you. Don’t accept the limited mindset of this age. Tap into God’s life, through faith in Jesus, and let his life take over your life. Don’t just live life, live life to the full in Jesus.
Tweet Day 225 “The grace of our Lord was poured out on me abundantly…” (1 Thessalonians 1:14) Paul openly gives testimony to the great work of God’s grace in his life. Paul acknowledges that he had been a recipient of grace, and he was not reluctant to let others know just how good God had been to him. In fact, Paul says that God had poured out his grace on him abundantly. Take some time today and recount the many ways that God has extended his grace to you. Then, make a point of sharing with someone what God has done for you. You will be encouraged as see that God has poured his grace out abundantly on you too!
Tweet Day 224 “…And all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.” (Romans 3:24) You have been made right with God, restored to a loving relationship with God. This is not because of anything you have done or based on any merit of your own, it is based only on what Jesus did for you on the cross. Celebrate the grace of God today knowing that you have been justified by his grace and that you now have full access to the Father who loves you.
Tweet Day 223 “…In accordance with the riches of God’s grace that he lavished on us.” (Ephesians 1:7-8) God’s grace has been lavished on you, without limit and without hesitation. God does not eek out his grace reluctantly or sparingly; he pours it out generously and joyfully on his children. His grace has opened the throne room of heaven to you and made you an heir with Jesus. Rejoice in the overabundant grace that God has lavished on you today.
Tweet Day 222 “…Through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand.” (Rom 5:2) It is through Jesus that we have access to God’s grace, but that access is by faith alone. Grace is the security we have with God. Jesus laid his life down for us so that we can stand confidently in relationship with God. Rejoice today in the wonderful grace that God has given you access to, and don’t let insecurity or fear rob you of the richness of your relationship with your heavenly Father.
