Day 12 – Love – 2022

Day 12 – Love – 2022

But when the kindness and love of God our Savior appeared, he saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit, whom he poured out on us generously through Jesus Christ our Savior, so that, having been justified by his grace, we might become heirs having the hope of eternal life. 

Titus 3:4-7, NIV

I remember receiving a Christmas gift from my children that was like a Swiss army pocketknife. It had all kinds of various tools that would fold out—scissors, a knife, a corkscrew and a screwdriver, to name a few. With multiple capabilities, it was a gift that kept on giving! Jesus Christ is our gift from God that just keeps on giving forever: he saved us, washed us of our sin, renewed us by the Holy Spirit and we have become joint heirs and have eternal life through him. What a gift! And best of all, this gift is available to anyone who will place their trust in Christ and receive his gift of redemption. Today is the day to open your gift! 

Prayer Guide:

  1. Pray that you and your loved ones would experience the renewal the Holy Spirit this very day. 
  2. Pray for a friend or neighbor who needs to know the mercy of God and experience spiritual rebirth through Christ. 
  3. Thank God today for his mercy which he displayed through Christ, and for the hope we have of living forever with him.
