Verse of the Day
Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends. [NKJV] John 15:13
Through the words of Jesus in today’s Bible passage, He shows us how far our love for one another should be; even to the point of laying down of our lives for our friends; which is the highest instance of love shown to us all by Jesus. But what does friendship really mean to many today? Many of us today choose our friends based on what they have to offer, very rarely discovering the blessings of a genuinely true friendship. Thank God for Jesus, who is the finest example of what a true friend should be. His love for us is sacrificial, never selfish. And when He walked among men, He demonstrated it not only through his miracles but more fully through the humble service of washing His disciples’ feet (John 13:1-17), and then ultimately, when he laid down his life on the cross. Don’t you know that valuing your friend’s needs above your own, you’ll be on your way to loving like Jesus; and in the process gain a true friend for life? I don’t know about you, but having true friends is worth so much more than gaining false ones. Prayer: Lord Jesus, teach us how to love like You! We know it’s not going to be easy, but it will be worth it in the end. In Jesus name. Amen.

Verse of the Day
Then Agrippa said to Paul, “You almost persuade me to become a Christian.” And Paul said, “I would to God that not only you, but also all who hear me today, might become both almost and altogether such as I am, except for these chains.” [NKJV] Acts 26:28-29
If the Lord had not been on my side, the troubles of this world most likely would have snuffed the life out of me. But God rescued me. Great is His love towards me, He preserved my life and kept my feet from slipping. He alone is worthy of my praise and thanksgiving! My lips will continually glorify Him, for He has done wonderful deeds in my life. He has been my rock, my fortress and my deliverer. He delivered me from all my troubles and my eyes have always looked in triumph over every challenge, adversity and adversary that has ever tried to make a mockery of the love of God over me. He is the stronghold of my life, and whenever I call to Him I am saved from every negative situation that tries to plague me, and great has always been my peace. He is Faithful, Pure, Trustworthy, Merciful and Loving God. His ways are Perfect! He is Wonderful, Powerful, Majestic, Marvellous, ONLY HE CAN KEEP ME SAFE, no one else! He truly has been and will forever be a good good God. If you don’t know Jesus yet, why don’t you try Him? It is my prayer that you come to know this amazing God whose love is better than life itself. #VerseoftheDay #Bible #Truth #God #Bible #FaithfulnessOfGod #Testimony #ReasonsWhyILoveGod #HeIsGodAlone
