We belong to the Lord…

14:08 Romans “If we live, it's to honor the Lord. And if we die, it's to honor the Lord. So whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord." (NLT)

In this chapter, Paul helps us to see that there may be some differences in how we live our lives. We have some choices. God gives us certain freedoms. We need to understand and respect that in others. Paul also states that once we are under God’s care, we also have the best of all possibilities. Nothing can ever separate us from Him. We are His now… AND forever! It just doesn’t get any better than that!

Have you heard the Good News lately?…

10:17 Romans “So faith comes from hearing, that is, hearing the Good News about Christ.” (NLT)

Paul emphasizes the need to have the Gospel of Jesus Christ preached so that people could hear it. It was shared in homes. It was preached in temples. It was discussed everywhere. We have so many more ways to pass on the Good News…phone, email, printed materials, social media, TV, etc., etc. and yet we often fail to share it with anyone. We are reminded that it is still the Good News that people want to hear. Pass it on today!

God is ready and is waiting for your call…

65:24 Isaiah “Before they call I will answer; while they are still speaking I will hear.” (NIV)

God is there for us… always… even before we know that we need to reach out to Him. That is just how much He loves us. We would be shocked at all of the blessings that He has prepared for us yet we just never get around to asking Him for them. Even in our darkest moment, He is there to give comfort and support to all of our needs. What are you waiting for… reach out to Him in prayer right now. Now is the best time… always!
