Today’s Bible Verse: But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. – Hebrews 11:6
Words are simply not enough. Begging forgiveness to save yourself or out of fear is not faith. Believing in the word of God and ACTING upon it, even when it is most difficult, is faith. The fruit of the spirit is faith (Galatians 5: 22-23) and God has always kept His faithful promises to us (Deuteronomy 7:9). As believers, we must honor God’s faith to us with our faith to Him.
Merciful Lord, keeper of the faith, I aim to be more like you. I pray that I have the resolve to remain steadfastly faithful to you, in the light times and even in the darkest times. Your son, Jesus Christ, remained faithful and kept His promise to us, even when He was crucified, and I am eternally grateful for this sacrifice, heavenly Father! I humbly ask that You let me faithfully serve You today and forever. Amen.
