DAILY, WEEKEND AND HOLIDAY INTERNET EVANGELIZE TO THE WORLD MINISTRY

My Prayer for Today

Heavenly Father, thank You for this Sabbath Day that our Jewish friends celebrate. Let us Christians not be angry at those non-Christian religions that also celebrate in their places of worship their god's, but for the Christian's to live their lives of love for our neighbors regardless of race or religion and pray for them that they will come to Christ Jesus as their Lord and Savior through genuine repentance and acceptance.  I pray that we Christian's let our light shine that others may see Christ and His good works that indwell in us, and that we evangelize God's Word. I pray for the safety and protection of all peoples in the name of Jesus. Amen.

It is clear, then, that there is no hope for me out of Christ; for there is no other blood-shedding which is worth a thought as an atonement for sin. Am I, then, believing in him? Is the blood of his atonement truly applied to my soul? All men are on a level as to their need of him. If we be never so moral, generous, amiable, or patriotic, the rule will not be altered to make an exception for us. Sin will yield to nothing less potent than the blood of him whom God hath set forth as a propitiation. [28 highlights] What a blessing that there is the one way of pardon! Why should we seek another?

This can be costly—not just to you, but to all the people you hurt in the process. If anything is done for the purpose of power, it’s not worth achieving. And don’t let the snazzy word “influence” fool you; it’s just a synonym for the same empty desire.
John the Baptist is an example of ambition; he is fueled by passion but constantly checked by God’s calling. He is firm in his words, confident in what he must do, but humble in his understanding of his relationship to God. He is not in it for himself, but for Jesus. When asked, “Who are you?” (a leading question, since many believed him to be the Messiah the people expected), he replied, “I am not the Christ!” (John 1:19–20). When further questioned, “Then who are you? Are you Elijah?” (the supreme prophet …
