Scriptures: Romans 8:31-39
In these scriptures God clearly outlines three things every person needs to give themselves! Its not encouraging speeches, pats on the back, or new year's resolutions. God wants you to give yourself three specific things:
1) A Cross to cling to- the Word says: "He delievered Him up for us all." Salvation is for us all, especially you! Christ gave His life for you; He is not going to turn around and condemn you. The message of the cross is comfort and confidence in our Savior.
2) A Truth to hold on to-The Bible says "who shall separate us from the love of God...not tribulation, distress, persecution, famine, nakedness, peril, sword,death, life, angels, principalities, powers, things present, things to come, no heignt or depth, nor any other creature." Jesus will never abandon you! No matter what this life or the Devil tries to throw at you, Jesus will be right there.
3) A Lord to look to- "Nothing shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord." We have total security in our Lord Jesus. He offers us an overwhelming assurance and we have His constant presence.
Today its all about you! Give yourself these gifts that God has freely offered unto you! A cross to lean upon, a truth for every season of life and a Lord to lead you.
