Today Reminder – 6 June 2016

 A reminder for today
For the Scriptures tell us, "Abraham believed God, and God counted him as righteous because of his faith."
When people work, their wages are not a gift, but something they have earned. But people are counted as righteous, not because of their work, but because of their faith in God who forgives sinners. (Romans 4:3-5)

I hope you had a good weekend, my friend. We had the privilege to visit my parents on their farm and the boys loved it there. They enjoy the great outdoors and the fresh air there just seems to fix all your issues. It is great to go home and spend time with family. We are all working through life with all its challenges and obstacles and so we need friends and family to help us stand and keep on going despite our storms.

Paul writes about being righteous and so many believe that with good deeds we can buy righteousness and earn our pass to heaven. God makes it clear that we can never be counted as righteous because of what we did. It can only be done by faith. That is why Jesus said that He is the only way and there is no other way to God. 

So today we are going to expand our faith and increase the intensity of how we have faith. We need to renew our faith by realigning ourselves with God and with His Word. We need to let go of all that has a hold on our lives and give ourselves completely to God. Our faith is in Jesus Christ that gave His life so that we will be sin free. He is the only way that we need and therefore we believe with all our hearts. We see with all our hearts and we live with all our hearts. When your heart is in the right place the enemy can never destroy you. So come as we give our hearts to the Lord and live with new fresh faith like air that fills our bodies.

Lord, we renew our faith and we ask that you restore it and strengthen our faith as we give our hearts to you. Lord we love you with all hearts and all our minds. In Jesus name.

Have an awesome day dear friend of Jesus
