  • Verse of the Day - John 8:12

    <p>When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, "I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life."</p><p>&mdash;<a href="http://bible.faithlife.com/bible/niv/John8.12" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">John 8:12</a></p><h4>Thoughts on Today's Verse...</h4><p>After stumbling around in the dark watering my yard last night, I was overjoyed to find a flashlight so I wouldn't meet any unexpected "critters" as I reached into the shrubbery to turn my faucet on and off. My joy, however, is far greater at finding Jesus, who illuminates my heart on my darkest nights, illuminates my future with his coming glory, illuminates my path with his words of truth, and illuminates my hope with the dawning of each Sunday, my weekly reminder of his triumph over the grave.</p><h4>My Prayer...</h4><p>Father, dear precious and holy God, how can I ever thank you enough for the light of my life? Until my face reflects the light of your glory, Jesus will light my way. Thank you. In the name of Jesus, the Light of the world, I praise and thank you. Amen.</p>The Thoughts and Prayer on Today's Verse are written by Phil Ware.

  • Verse of the Day - John 8:10-11

    <p>Jesus straightened up and asked her [the woman caught in adultery], "Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?" "No one, sir," she said. "Then neither do I condemn you," Jesus declared. "Go now and leave your life of sin."</p><p>&mdash;<a href="http://bible.faithlife.com/bible/niv/John8.10-11" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">John 8:10-11</a></p><h4>Thoughts on Today's Verse...</h4><p>Forgiveness is wonderful if it leads to life change. Jesus came to call us from sin, into his presence, and for his good pleasure. He gave us grace but is also gracious enough to not leave us in sin!</p><h4>My Prayer...</h4><p> O LORD my God, holy in all your ways, please transform my heart and my life into your holy will. Give me the assurance of forgiveness and the courage to leave my sin behind. In Jesus' name I ask you for your gracious and unlimited power to mold my heart and my life into a clearer reflection of you.

  • Verse of the Day - Romans 8:9

    <p>You, however, are controlled not by the sinful nature but by the Spirit, if the Spirit of God lives in you.

We show our relationship to the Father by living with his character in our world. So let's live under the control of the Spirit — obeying the Spirit's inspired Word and following the Spirit's lead — so we can show and share Jesus in what we say and do! <br /> <hr /> <br /> <b>VerseoftheDay.com video message from Phil Ware:</b><br /><br /> <div align="center"><iframe class="youtube" id="WX6EA08ZEy4"></iframe></div> <ul><li>This week's <a href="https://www.heartlight.org/articles/202008/20200816_whowillcaryus.html?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=devos&utm_content=votd&utm_term=en" target="_blank"><b>ToGather</b> home worship guide</a>.</li><li><a href="https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLJnlRcLpa7-dbfxv7eNdOAYxDXo15MBVs" target="_blank">This week's song playlist</a></li><li>All <a href="https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCg1NUFuMRfFz41b75SzeX5g" target="_blank"><b>ToGather</b> videos</a>.</li><li>Full <b>ToGather</b> <a href="https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLJnlRcLpa7-eQdkgBhb6U8i_FMxy4EvBP&jct=IxIFxZrk7qMMY4z70Mi1DXIDVmXbXg" target="_blank">playlist of songs</a>.</li></ul> <hr /> <br /></p><h4>My Prayer...</h4><p>Dear Father, please help the beauty, grace, and holiness of Jesus to be seen in me.

  • Verse of the Day - 1 Corinthians 8:8-9

    <p>But food does not bring us near to God; we are no worse if we do not eat, and no better if we do. Be careful, however, that the exercise of your freedom does not become a stumbling block to the weak.</p><p>&mdash;<a href="http://bible.faithlife.com/bible/niv/1Corinthians8.8-9" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">1 Corinthians 8:8-9</a></p><h4>Thoughts on Today's Verse...</h4><p>We have incredible freedom under grace. However, our freedom never gives us the license to destroy a weak brother or sister's walk with the Lord. Let's use our freedom considerately, especially toward our new brothers and sisters in Christ. These new Christians need our encouragement; they already have enough stumbling blocks!</p><h4>My Prayer...</h4><p>God of all grace, please help me to be an encouragement and a good example to new Christians and those who are weak in their faith. Please, help me guard my life from being a bad example to others. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.</p>The Thoughts and Prayer on Today's Verse are written by Phil Ware.

  • Verse of the Day - John 8:7

    <p>When they kept on questioning him, he straightened up and said to them, "If any one of you is without sin, let him be the first to throw a stone at her [the woman caught in adultery]."</p><p>&mdash;<a href="http://bible.faithlife.com/bible/niv/John8.7" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">John 8:7</a></p><h4>Thoughts on Today's Verse...</h4><p>When we find it easy to identify the sin of others, God wants us to be reminded of how important it is for us to take a rigorously honest inventory of our own faithfulness. He wants us to deal with our own sin before we evaluate anyone else.</p><h4>My Prayer...</h4><p>Forgive me, Father God, for my sins. Forgive me, especially Father, for the sin of a critical and judgmental spirit. Deliver me from such hurtful and evil habits, forgive me of my sins, and please bless me with faithfulness.

  • Verse of the Day - Hebrews 8:6

    <p>But the ministry Jesus has received is as superior to theirs [Those who served as priests in Old Testament times.] as the covenant of which he is mediator is superior to the old one, and it is founded on better promises.</p><p>&mdash;<a href="http://bible.faithlife.com/bible/niv/Hebrews8.6" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Hebrews 8:6</a></p><h4>Thoughts on Today's Verse...</h4><p>The Old Testament is a beautiful covenant of love, as God redeems fallen mankind and sets in motion his plan of grace to bring us to Jesus. But as powerful as that old covenant was, we have come to a superior covenant because the mediator of this new covenant is Jesus, who is the perfect sacrifice and guarantor of God's great promises.</p><h4>My Prayer...</h4><p>Thank you, Almighty God, for sending Jesus to fulfill the promises and carry out the plan you set in place so long ago and revealed by your prophets of old. I thank you and praise you in the name of Jesus Christ my Lord. Amen.</p>The Thoughts and Prayer on Today's Verse are written by Phil Ware.
