Scripture Reading: Romans 10:11-17
There is one God that justifies all in the same way and that is through faith in the Gospel message that Jesus died on the cross for the salvation of all who believe. All believers receive the way to freedom and even victory over death.
Within this message is mentioned the activity “call upon the name of the Lord to be saved”. This involves being eager to hear His Word, observing Christ at work in the world, accepting Him as Savior, and bringing the Good News to others. This day with God will be amazing because God’s plan for us gives us a roadmap as we go along life’s journey.
Once the plan is received, lose yourself in this plan and passionately stick to it even if the going gets tough. Sometimes the tough times will build up our character and prepare us for the challenges ahead. Other times, things may not always get better in our lifetime on earth but we can be assured that God will provide for a glorious future in eternity.
This day with You God, we call upon Your name as we aspire to live life the right way; the way Christ has taught in the Gospel. Fill in us, the desire to have an ongoing commitment to going the distance and fulfilling the purpose You have for us. We feel Your presence at this time and in every moment we invite You into our heart. All this is made possible by our faith in what Christ has done for us on the Cross. Amen.
