WORD OF THE DAY – Wednesday 07 September 2016

See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are. The reason why the world does not know us is that it did not know him. (1 John 3:1 ESV)

Смотрите, какую любовь дал нам Отец, чтобы нам называться и быть детьми Божиими. Мир потому не знает нас, что не познал Его. (1-e Иоанна 3:1 Russian)

O LORD my God, dear Father in heaven ~ thank you for spreading your loving kindness around the world. Help us to see through the temporary discomforts and recognize that you are never far from us if we will only stop and take a look at the wonderful ways in which you show your love each day. The greatest of these proofs is the way you specifically call us your children because we trust and obey Christ as Lord. In the precious name of Jesus, Amen. Continue reading

WORD OF THE DAY – Monday 16 November 2015

But you, O GOD my Lord, deal on my behalf for your name’s sake; because your steadfast love is good, deliver me! (Psalm 109:21 ESV)

А Ти Господи, Владико, зо мною зроби ради Ймення Свого, що добре Твоє милосердя, мене порятуй, (Псалми 109:21 Ukrainian)

O Lord God, our dear heavenly Father ~ we enter your gates with hearts full of praise and thanks for the many merciful ways in which you lead us along the bumpy road of life. Give us more of the perfect wisdom of Christ so that we will keep our minds focused upon your love in all situations. Help us to be quick to forgive and slow to condemn those who offend us. Deliver us from evil! In the precious name of Jesus we fervently pray for your help. Amen.

WORD OF THE DAY – Saturday 14 November 2015

And by that will we have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.
(Hebrews 10:10)

По сей-то воле освящены мы единократным принесением тела Иисуса Христа. (К Евреям 10:10 Russian)

O God, our dear heavenly Father, we exalt you above all that exists above and beyond the farthest reaches of the known universe. You are the Creator and Sustainer of life for every being. Thank you for sending your Son who offered his own body as the acceptable sacrifice for the sins of all who will come to him in faith. Help us to be more keenly aware that we no longer need to offer all kinds of sacrifices that never removed sins; since our Savior has cleansed our sins and declared us to be righteous. Give us wisdom so that we will live as those who have been set apart as examples of those who trust and obey Christ as Lord. We pray with hope and love in the precious name of Jesus, Amen.

WORD OF THE DAY – Friday 13 November 2015

And just as it is appointed for man to die once, and after that comes judgment, so Christ, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time, not to deal with sin but to save those who are eagerly waiting for him. (Hebrews 9:27-28)

І як людям призначено вмерти один раз, потім же суд, так і Христос один раз був у жертву принесений, щоб понести гріхи багатьох, і не в справі гріха другий раз з’явитися тим, хто чекає Його на спасіння. (До євреїв 9:27-28 Ukrainian)

O God, our dear Father in heaven ~ we hallow your glorious name in our hearts on this new day as we consider our terminal nature and look forward to our coming king Jesus who now reigns from his regal heavenly throne. We give the highest praise for that Christ your dear Son and our Savior offered himself as the only worthy sacrifice for our many sins. Moreover we look forward to seeing Christ when he comes to take us home to live with him forever. We pray with the joy of faith and hope in the precious name of Jesus, Amen.

WORD OF THE DAY – Thursday 12 November 2015

For I have no pleasure in the death of anyone, declares the Lord GOD; so turn, and live.” (Ezekiel 18:32 ESV)

Ибо Я не хочу смерти умирающего, говорит Господь Бог; но обратитесь, и живите! (Иезекииль 18:32 Russian)

Hear our prayers on this new day O LORD our God and dear Father in heaven ~ we confess that we have often turned our eyes off the prize that waits for every faithful believer. Stir up within our hearts the realization that no church can repent for my sins, nor any governor, president, king, judge, or any preacher, rabbi, priest or pope. We alone stand before your perfect and holy presence in need of forgiveness. Give us a revived and clean heart and spirit as we turn from sin in sincere repentance. Forgive us of our sins as we forgive others. We earnestly pray in the precious name of Jesus, who took our sins upon himself at the cross where he died. Amen.

Death is only a door
Set in a garden wall.
On quiet hinges it gives at dusk,
When the thrushes call.
Along the lintel are green leaves,
Beyond, the light lies still;
Very weary and willing feet
Go over that sill.
There is nothing to trouble any heart,
Nothing to hurt at all,
Death is only an old door
In a garden wall.

Death Is A Door

WORD OF THE DAY – Wednesday 11 November 2015

As in water face reflects face, so the heart of man reflects the man. (Proverbs 27:19 ESV)

Як лице до лиця у воді, так серце людини до серця людини. (Приповісті 27:19 Ukrainian)

O God, our dear heavenly Father ~ we bow before your great and awesome presence on this new day. Help us to overcome any inkling toward putting you to the test as your people have done in ages past. Give us more perfect wisdom to live in a righteous manner so that our innermost thoughts and outward actions will genuinely reflect that Christ is living in us. We pray in the precious name of Jesus, Amen.

but he holds his priesthood permanently, because he continues forever. Consequently, he is able to save to the uttermost those who draw near to God through him, since he always lives to make intercession for them. (Hebrews 7:24-25 ESV)

а Сей, как пребывающий вечно, имеет и священство непреходящее, посему и может всегда спасать приходящих чрез Него к Богу, будучи всегда жив, чтобы ходатайствовать за них. (К Евреям 7:24-25 Russian)

O Lord God, our merciful and kind heavenly Father ~ hear our prayers of praise and thanksgiving on this new day. We are certainly not without hope as we put our trust in your Son and our Savior Jesus Christ. We are amazed that Jesus left the glory of paradise to become fully human and yet without any sin. Forgive us completely of all our sins as we trust in the blood that was shed at Golgotha on that dark day many years ago. Help us to be more effective in communicating the truth of the gospel with the same love that you have for all people. In the precious name of Jesus, Amen.
