Verse of the day – Laid his life down - (1 John 3:16)

Today I want to think of Billy Graham’s quote for my day at the end of today’s verse of the day and meditate on just how important his death on the cross was and thank him for giving his life.

Do I really follow Jesus? He laid his life down. Do I ?

Something for me personally to think about this morning. I want to meditate upon my life this morning and ask the question do I live a life of sacrifice? Really live it…….

I ask today for strength to stand for my faith and ask God to develop my spiritual life and understanding with love like Jesus Christ.

So today as I go about my way I want to reflect on his love and ask him to continue to teach me to be more like him. Let me focus not so much on me anymore but let his love teach me to love others with a love like Christ Jesus loved.

Amen

Reflection Passage: (Psalm 104: 1-1) – On top of his love he is in control of every second of my life.

1 Praise the Lord, my soul. Lord my God, you are very great; you are clothed with splendor and majesty.

2 The Lord wraps himself in light as with a garment; he stretches out the heavens like a tent

3 and lays the beams of his upper chambers on their waters. He makes the clouds his chariot and rides on the wings of the wind.

4 He makes winds his messengers,[a] flames of fire his servants.

5 He set the earth on its foundations; it can never be moved.

6 You covered it with the watery depths as with a garment; the waters stood above the mountains.

7 But at your rebuke the waters fled, at the sound of your thunder they took to flight;

8 they flowed over the mountains, they went down into the valleys, to the place you assigned for them.

9 You set a boundary they cannot cross; never again will they cover the earth.

10 He makes springs pour water into the ravines; it flows between the mountains.

11 They give water to all the beasts of the field; the wild donkeys quench their thirst.

12 The birds of the sky nest by the waters; they sing among the branches.

13 He waters the mountains from his upper chambers; the land is satisfied by the fruit of his work.

14 He makes grass grow for the cattle, and plants for people to cultivate— bringing forth food from the earth:

laid his life down

1 John 3:16

This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers.

Quote for my day:

God is more interested in your future and your relationships than you are.
