God Gives the Power to do Right

A Truth to Live – The standards of the world change with the seasons and are amended by new leaders, icons and the morals around me.  But God’s standard never changes. He expects righteous behavior, pure thoughts and a heart that is motivated toward Him. The only way for me to find salvation is through the grace offered to us by God’s own Son.

Scripture – “You have heard that it was said to the people long ago, ‘Do not murder, and anyone who murders will be subject to judgment.’ But I tell you that anyone who is angry with his brother will be subject to judgment. Again, anyone who says to his brother, ‘Raca,’ is answerable to the Sanhedrin. But anyone who says, ‘You fool!’ will be in danger of the fire of hell.”   Matthew 5:21-22

Prayer – Loving and Merciful God, I admit today that my heart is not inclined toward good and that my intentions are often misdirected.  I ask that You rescue me from my own shortcomings and, by Your mighty hand, make a way for me to be saved. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
