My Journal for Today: Today’s Our Daily Bread devotional entry, authored by Dave Branon, reminds - and even convicts me - that I need to be living my life to show off what God has done to redeem me from the pits of sin.
My life NOW should be a placard to proclaim God’s redemption to others who need The Lord’s saving grace. I’m really a poster-child for 2nd Cor. 5: 17 and hopefully you’ve heard the song linked above and realize especially what Steve Green is singing … that people need our LORD and His redeeming blood.
So, today, as we encounter people walking about in our lives, let’s pray that God opens the door of opportunity for us to share what God has done in our lives through His redeeming grace … and what He can do to/for anyone who receives that grace through realization and repentance.
Yes, so many people in our lives need the Lord.
My Prayer for Today … Lord, … My life proclaims Your saving grace. … Amen
