Today’s Passage – Your Favorite Passage
(Second Milers also read – Proverbs 31)
Read the “1231 Evening and Morning“ devotion for today, by the late Charles Haddon Spurgeon.
“All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out. For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me. And this is the Father’s will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day. And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.” (John 6:37-40)
Good morning. We’re almost done with 2022, and 2023 will soon begin. I hope your new year will be blessed with souls saved, and many blessings from the Lord. Over the years I have accumulated many favorite passages from God’s Word. John 6:37-40 is probably one of my favorites. This tells us that if you came to Jesus, He will not cast you out: your salvation is secure! Jesus will lose nothing, we have everlasting life, and He will raise us up at the last day. God’s Word tells us how we must be saved, and that we can know we are saved…
“And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.” (1John 5:11-13)
“For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.” (Ephesians 2:8-9)
“So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” (Romans 10:17)
And it is God’s will that none should perish…
“The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.” (2Peter 3:9)
And repentance is a change of mind. Go from believing in false gods, eating a cookie. handing out your watchtowers and pushing your book of mormon. Go from worshiping dead saints to the living God…
“And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up: That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.” (John 3:14-18)
“For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:13)
If you are not 100% sure you have a home in Heaven, ask Jesus to forgive your sins and He will. Jesus is the only foundation that will stand. Happy New Year, and…
