Walking in Love
Above all these things walk in love
This Bible verse on love commands us to walk in love above all these things. If we look in the verse before this statement it says to put on therefore, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, a heart of compassion, kindness, lowliness, humility, and perseverance; bearing with one another, and forgiving each other, if any man has a complaint against any; even as Christ forgave you, so you also do.

Salvation can only come from Jesus
There is salvation in none other
This Bible verse on faith comes from the fourth chapter of Acts.
The book of Acts is a Bible book that follows on from the Gospels. This is sometimes called the Acts of the Apostles. You could say it is a book of activity, adventures, travels and exploits of the disciples who witnessed the life, death and ressurrection of Jesus.

Grace when we get it wrong
He is faithful and just to forgive us of all our sins
I John 1:9
This short verse is so rich in meaning and a favourite among believers particularly those who are young in their faith. We all make mistakes – nobody is perfect.
Sometimes where we are weak in problematic areas of our lives we deliberately sin. It could be entertaining a sly piece of gossip, being bad-tempered and taking it out on somebody who loves us – it could even be a ‘major’ sin such as being blind drunk. There are even ‘religious sins’ where we are judgmental of fellow believers.

Today, a Bible verse on faith
All authority has been given to me in Heaven and on Earth – Matthew 28:18
Jesus made this magnificent statement at the end of the Gospel of Matthew. Jesus had just risen from the dead – it was triumphant Easter morning.
Earlier in this Bible chapter we read that an angel with an appearance like lightning and wearing clothes that were white as snow had rolled away the massive stone that sealed Jesus’ tomb.

For today a Bible verse on encouragement and hope for the coming year
All things were made through him. Without Him was not anything made that has been made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. John 1:3-4
Today is the first day of the year. If you’re anything like me, whilst recovering from all the excesses of Christmas and New Year celebrations, thoughts are turned to New Year resolutions. Bitter experience reminds me that resolutions are rarely remembered a few weeks into January.
So, what is the solution? Only God’s grace enables us to live free of self-effort. Today I am reminded of the lovely scripture John 1: 3-4 which says… all things were made through Him. Without Him was not anything made that has been made. 4 In Him was life, and the life was the light of men.
Only God knows every detail of our life, what is going on in every cell of our body and what is best for us. Only in Him do we find the life and the light to live each day fulfilled without striving for self-motivated improvements. Thank goodness for that!
