Romans 6:5-6


VERSE:
   If we have been united with him like this in his death, we will certainly also be united with him in his resurrection. For we know that our old self was crucified with him so that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves to sin...
    -- Romans 6:5-6

THOUGHT:
   Paul reminds us that our baptism was more than just a dunking in water. In baptism, we shared in Jesus' death, burial, and resurrection. What he did to save us is now shared with us. We die to sin and are raised to be a new person, cleansed and made holy, empowered by the Holy Spirit. We have been set free from the power and the penalty of sin.

PRAYER:
   Father, thank you for giving me new life in Jesus. I am truly thankful that my guilt is covered by your grace. I ask for the power to live my life of freedom from sin. Forgive me for my times of mediocrity and flirtation with sin. Give me a strong sense of revulsion toward anything that would pollute my soul or distract myheart from your will. In the name of Jesus I pray. Amen.

Hebrews 13:6

VERSE:
   So we say with confidence, "The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?"
    -- Hebrews 13:6
       http://www.SearchGodsWord.org/desk/?query=Hebrews+13:6

THOUGHT:
   How can we be confident in what happens today? What is our assurance for tomorrow? Where do we muster excitement about eternity? The Lord is our helper! Fear will not be our master because our future, our destiny, our eternity rest in the hands of the eternal Lord. The worst that man can do is to send me home to
my Lord.

PRAYER:
   Almighty God, my Father and my helper, I place my trust in you. As the Alpha and Omega, I trust you for all of my tomorrows and place my trust and dependence in you for today. In Jesus' name I praise you. Amen.

Proverbs 3:9

VERSE:
   Honor the LORD with your wealth, with the firstfruits of all your crops…
    -- Proverbs 3:9
       http://www.SearchGodsWord.org/desk/?query=Proverbs+3:9

THOUGHT:
   Honoring God comes first in everything. We don't give him the last, the least, or the leftovers. He gave us his best, most precious, and most perfect of gifts -- his Son Jesus. Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift! How could we give him anything less than our best, our first, and our most precious?

PRAYER:
   Gracious God and loving Father, thank you for every good and perfect gift you have lavished upon me. Please accept the offering of my heart which I freely give to you. Soften it and make it gracious and generous like you. I commit to give you and your work in the world, my first and best. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
