Verse of the Day
Grow Closer to God and Deepen Your Faith Each Day
But go ye and learn what that meaneth, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice: for I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.
- Matthew 9:13(KJV)
Thoughts on Today's Verse...
Jesus came to call sinners to repentance. He came to heal the sick. He didn't come for those who think they are righteous and in no need of a savior. We all need a savior, though, and Jesus is the only one who can save. Repent and be baptized, and you will be saved. Choose the LORD, and choose to serve Him. You will not regret it.
My Prayer...
Thank you, Almighty God, for being tender as well as powerful, forgiving as well as righteous, and merciful as well as holy. Please mature me in these sets of character defining traits. I don't want to be self-righteous, but righteous. I don't want to be a bully, but compassionately strong. I don't want to be sanctimonious, but true and merciful. Please fill me with your Spirit and gently confront me in those areas that need growth and change. May others see in me a reflection of you. In the name of Jesus I pray. Amen.
