Daily Devotional from Pastor Mary 04-12-23

Intro: Every day is a new day for God’s chosen people—those who have accepted the cross of Christ as Father God’s Way of atonement, obedient in following Christ the Son out of sin and into Truth, and joyfully embracing the miraculous realm of Kingdom Life (righteousness, peace, and joy in the Spirit). Jesus said, “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No one can come to the Father except through me” (John 14:6). You

Today will unfold before you as a new day with God; our relationship with God is one of revelation and discovery so celebrate the possibilities that may occupy your day. Because of our covenant with Christ, we have been granted access to the presence of Father God where we can enjoy His goodness and favor. Jesus is the Cornerstone or foundation for the Church, so we can receive healing for our souls and vitality in His Spirit. God is our Provider and He longs to satisfy His children with good and righteous gifts that lead us into our destiny. This is the day the Lord has made…REJOICE!

Psalm 118: 1, 19-24 NLT
Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good!
His faithful love endures forever.
Open for me the gates where the righteous enter,
and I will go in and thank the Lord.
These gates lead to the presence of the Lord,
and the godly enter there.
I thank you for answering my prayer
and giving me victory!
The stone that the builders rejected
has now become the cornerstone.
This is the Lord’s doing,
and it is wonderful to see.
This is the day the Lord has made.
We will rejoice and be glad in it.

Prayer: Father, we pause to thank you for your faithful love toward us as your children; your Way of loving us is amazing. Please continue to open our hearts more fully to receive the Truth you have for us as we follow your firstborn Son, Jesus. Holy Spirit, please make us aware of your presence with us each day and lead us forward into victorious Kingdom living even while we are in the midst of this sinful world. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Attention: Please come and join us tonight…
New Bible Study Series: The Chosen
Season 1: What Does It Mean to Be Chosen?
Starting Date: 4/12 @ 7:00PM

This Bible Study is designed to be used in conjunction with The Chosen—a streaming television series about the life of Jesus. Each session works in tandem with an episode from the story and each episode brings together the Old and the New Testaments. Because each week’s video is unique in its length, we are looking for points of continuity between the Old and New Testament, and because discussion plays a very big part in the study, the lessons will range from 1-1.5 hrs. We will not be able to live stream the video, but you can watch each episode through a link posted on our website. The discussion following the video each week will be streamed for those who cannot attend in person, but want to be a part of the study dialogue.

If you are just beginning on your path with Jesus or you have had a relationship with Jesus for years, being chosen by God has endless applications that will inspire and renew an inner sense of purpose. Make a commitment to attend; I will have a study guide waiting for you…
