God Alone Has the Power to Cleanse and Empower

A Truth to Live – Each year thousands of new books are published offering new twists on the age old theme of self-help and work ethic.  While it is true that practicing these principles can improve my life here on earth, they cannot prepare me for an eternity with God. Only God’s Son, Jesus, has the power to cleanse and purify me to live with God forever.

Scripture – “John answered them all, "I baptize you with water. But one more powerful than I will come, the thongs of whose sandals I am not worthy to untie. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and with fire.” Luke 3:16

Prayer – Heavenly Father, thank You for the gift of eternal life.  While others promise hope that doesn’t seem to last, You have granted me the forgiveness of sin and replaced my broken heart with the power of Your Spirit.  Help me today to walk in the cleansing power that comes from being baptized in You. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
