  • Verse of the Day - 1 Corinthians 15:24

    <p>Then the end will come, when he hands over the kingdom to God the Father after he has destroyed all dominion, authority and power.</p><p>&mdash;<a href="https://bible.faithlife.com/bible/niv/1Corinthians15.24" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">1 Corinthians 15:24</a></p><h4>Thoughts on Today's Verse...</h4><p>Closing time! That's when everything is counted, the doors are locked, and the final tally is made. Jesus is Lord of closing time. Even though he won the victory over death and sin while he was here, we're still waiting to get swept up into in his victory march. But, that day is coming. Every knee will bow! Every evil power will face destruction. The hearts that are yielded to God, however, will be placed into his loving and mighty hands forever. Our Lord reigns!</p><h4>My Prayer...</h4><p>Almighty God, Father of grace and mercy, I appreciate your tenderness and patience with me. However, Father, I am also comforted to know your power and might. I am heartened to know that Jesus will assert his rule and destroy everything false, malicious, evil, and wicked. May that day come, soon! In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.</p>The Thoughts and Prayer on Today's Verse are written by Phil Ware.

  • Verse of the Day - 1 Corinthians 15:20

    <p>But Christ has indeed been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep.</p><p>&mdash;<a href="https://bible.faithlife.com/bible/niv/1Corinthians15.20" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">1 Corinthians 15:20</a></p><h4>Thoughts on Today's Verse...</h4><p>"Why do you seek the living among the dead?" These words of the angel to the women who came to Jesus' tomb are also God's words to us. Jesus is risen! Not only that, he is the firstfruits from the dead. He is the guarantee that God's harvest will happen; he is our assurance that we, too, will be raised. Death no longer has a hold on us! We are God's eternal children and death cannot separate us from his presence or his love!</p><h4>My Prayer...</h4><p>Father God, I praise you for your redeeming grace. I rejoice in your conquest over Satan and over his power to wound and destroy through death. I thank you for your power over the grave. Thank you for raising Jesus from the dead and giving me the assurance of life forever with you. Please bless me, dear Father, with a life that reflects the power that you have now working in me. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.</p>The Thoughts and Prayer on Today's Verse are written by Phil Ware.

  • Verse of the Day - Proverbs 10:2

    <p>Ill-gotten treasures are of no value, but righteousness delivers from death.</p><p>&mdash;<a href="https://bible.faithlife.com/bible/niv/Proverbs10.2" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Proverbs 10:2</a></p><h4>Thoughts on Today's Verse...</h4><p>Wealth, especially wealth gotten through greedy and wicked means, proves to be of no lasting value. This rancid wealth rots the heart of the one who gets it and it cannot save us from our ultimate demise. Righteousness, however, is a far more precious treasure. This righteousness of the Eternal God, this gift given to us by grace through faith, is greater than the limits of our mortality and powerful enough to buy our soul from death.</p><h4>My Prayer...</h4><p>Holy and Righteous Father, thank you for making me righteous in your sight through Jesus' sacrifice and your grace. I want my greatest legacy to be my righteous character, not my status, achievement, or wealth. I know my accomplishments will be forgotten after my earthly life is over, but I am fully convinced that the righteousness that you work in me will be a blessing and an influence for generations after I am gone and will be my accompanying treasure when I share with you in your glory. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.</p>The Thoughts and Prayer on Today's Verse are written by Phil Ware.

  • Verse of the Day - Philippians 4:19

    <p>And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus.</p><p>&mdash;<a href="https://bible.faithlife.com/bible/niv/Philippians4.19" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Philippians 4:19</a></p><h4>Thoughts on Today's Verse...</h4><p>Throughout Scripture, God reminds us that if our trust is in him and if we share his blessings with others, he will make sure we have all that we need. How can we be sure? Look at Jesus!</p><h4>My Prayer...</h4><p>Dear Father, please forgive me for trying to find my security and hope in things other than you. I know that there is no other source of hope, freedom, and security than you. Help me tear down every idol that I may have erected that dilutes or distorts my trust in you. In Jesus' name I pray.

  • Verse of the Day - Philippians 4:12-13

    <p>I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do everything through him who gives me strength.</p><p>&mdash;<a href="https://bible.faithlife.com/bible/niv/Philippians4.12-13" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Philippians 4:12-13</a></p><h4>Thoughts on Today's Verse...</h4><p>Life is full of ups and downs. So much of what we hold dear can be touched by death, disaster, and decay. What do we have that is certain? To whom can we turn for assurance? Where do we find the power to live victoriously in good times and bad? In the Lord who gives us strength!</p><h4>My Prayer...</h4><p>O LORD God, Father of all creation, I confess that my life and the circumstances in which I try to live it are beyond my ability to control. I thank you for being present to comfort, protect, guide, and empower me to face each situation with confidence and assurance. Because you are with me, O loving Shepherd, I know I will have all I need to live victoriously for you until the day I go to share with you in your glory. In Jesus' name. Amen.</p>The Thoughts and Prayer on Today's Verse are written by Phil Ware.

  • Verse of the Day - 1 Corinthians 15:19

    <p>If only for this life we have hope in Christ, we are of all people most to be pitied.</p><p>&mdash;<a href="https://bible.faithlife.com/bible/niv/1Corinthians15.19" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">1 Corinthians 15:19</a></p><h4>Thoughts on Today's Verse...</h4><p>Wow, what a powerful and sobering thought. Our faith in Jesus' resurrection, and our faith in being joined to him, is so crucial that all else pales in comparison. Our hope in Christ is not just for here and now, but it is also a hope that transcends life and bursts the shackles of death. If it doesn't offer us this hope, then it is no hope at all; it is not really good news. We are deluded and to be pitied. But then, I do believe! That, my friend, changes everything!</p><h4>My Prayer...</h4><p>Father God, the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, I believe that your victory over death in Jesus' resurrection also means my victory over death! I trust that Jesus will raise me up from the dead to share life eternal with you. I cannot tell you how much I look forward to being with you face to face and sharing in your glory and praising your name forever. In Jesus' name I praise and thank you. Amen.</p>The Thoughts and Prayer on Today's Verse are written by Phil Ware.

  • Verse of the Day - 1 Corinthians 15:3-5

    <p>For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures, and that he appeared to Peter, and then to the Twelve.</p><p>&mdash;<a href="https://bible.faithlife.com/bible/niv/1Corinthians15.3-5" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">1 Corinthians 15:3-5</a></p><h4>Thoughts on Today's Verse...</h4><p>Some things are "first importance" things. They lie at the heart of the matter and are central to the issue at hand. For us as Christians, we don't have to doubt what those "first importance" things are. The Gospel of our salvation is built on one simple foundation: Jesus died, Jesus was buried, Jesus rose from the grave, and Jesus appeared to his disciples who were never the same after witnessing their resurrected Savior. Let's not let anyone distract us from these core truths or crowd out their simplicity with other matters they may claim to be essential. Our salvation is rooted in our faith and our participation in this simple, yet powerful Gospel. </p><h4>My Prayer...</h4><p>Dear God, I confess my faith in your work for me in Jesus. I believe that your Son and my Savior, Jesus, was crucified by wicked men just as you had said long ago in your Word. I believe his dead and lifeless body was placed in the tomb. I believe that on the third day, you brought him back to life, just as you promised. I believe that those most destroyed by his death, those who knew him best, saw him alive again. I believe their lives were never the same. I believe, dear Father, that as I have confessed my faith in Jesus and shared with him in his death, burial, and resurrection through baptism, that my life is caught up with him in your salvation and victory over death. I praise you for this grace. I thank you for this assurance. I look forward to sharing in your glory when he returns for me. Thank you for my salvation, in Jesus' name. Amen.</p>The Thoughts and Prayer on Today's Verse are written by Phil Ware.
