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
Verse of the day
Has the LORD redeemed you? Then speak out! Tell others he has redeemed you from your enemies. [NLT] Psalm 107:2
Sometimes it is good to speak up concerning all that the Lord has done for you. You just never know, your testimony might just be that lifeline that someone around you might need to hear. So today’s post, is not about listing all the wonderful deeds the Lord has done for me, No, I just thought to remind you, that which the Lord did for you, that innermost desire which He fulfilled, it’s time you told someone about it. Has God not been good to you? Why don’t you tell someone all about it today, how He saved you and made all things new and colourful in your life. Tell Someone about God’s faithfulness in your life, and you just never know you might just be saving a life on the edge of giving up. God bless you as you do this! #TellSomeoneAboutTheGoodnessOfGod #Verseoftheday #Bible #Devotional
Verse of the Day
At the moment I have all I need–and more! [NLT] Philippians 4:18a
Indeed Lord, You are every lovely word I could conceivably think of. The stories of my life may not be one so easily told, or the journey many would have opted to travel on, but Lord, You made it what it is, and You blessed me unashamedly. Indeed I could not have asked it to be any other way than the way it is. In these moments of my life, Lord Jesus I thank you for the gift of life, and life to see how far and long you’ve taken me. Indeed in these moments of my life, when I remember all the detours, the transiting, and the never ending stop gaps, I am thankful that they were journeys that prepared me for this moment. Lord I have found all I have waited for, and needed, and indeed I could not have asked any better than what you’ve given to me. This has been my testimony, this is my song. Sometimes your life’s journeys may not go as planned, but as long as Jehovah is in it, you will get to your desired destination. Don’t let the detours, delays, derailment and stop gaps bother you. It’s only building your character, and a man/woman of proven character is a person who understands where they are going to; a person whose hope in God can never be shaken, because they know their God will never disappoint them; that their God is more than able to give them much more than they could have ever asked for. Your desired destination is much closer than you know, and your testimony sure, in Jesus name. Amen.
Verse of the Day
I called on Your name, Yahweh [LORD], from the depths of the Pit. You hear my plea: [HCSB] Lamentations 3:55-56a
People give testimonies, not just to boast about how their lives are so much better than yours – as some might think – but they do so to thank God for what He did for them, and in so doing you become encouraged that since God came through for them, He will definitely come through for you. Jeremiah said here, that He called on the name of the Lord, and He heard him. If he was able to tell us about how God heard him, along with all those people testifying about the goodness of the Lord in their lives, you’d better rest assured that God will also hear your cries too. Don’t let your soul be downcast. You are not alone, and #Jesus most definitely cares for you.
