Day 15

August 21

Romans 5:6-8 NIV

You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly dare to die. 8 But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

I am a sinner saved by God’s grace. Psalm 51:5 says, “Surely I was sinful at birth, sinful from the time my mother conceived me”. My Lord and my Savior Jesus Christ came into my life at the right time. He looked beyond all my faults and saw my needs. He rescued me. It blows my mind thinking about how Jesus died for me. I know how I am and I know how I was. It is hard to comprehend the love He has for me. “While we were still sinners, Christ died for us”. Therefore, I let my light shine everywhere I go. The light is Jesus Christ that is in me. 

It is so important that we stay connected to Jesus Christ, so that we can stay connected to each other. Here at CtK, it is no big I and little you. We are all one in Christ Jesus. God loves us all the same. We are strong when we are connected to one another. The fingers are weak when they are separated, but when the fingers come together and make a fist, they are strong. We have power when we come together as believers. There is nothing we cannot do with the power of God on our side.

We here at CtK are family. We come together on Sundays and throughout the week. We come to worship and praise God. We come to build one another up, to learn, to love and to help one another. We can only do this if we stay connected. Our walk with Jesus is not to be alone, but with one another, hand in hand and arm in arm. When we walk with Jesus, Jesus is walking with us. My brothers and my sisters let’s journey together in Jesus’ Name!

Prayer: Dear Lord Jesus, We thank you for your love, your mercies, your grace and for dying for us. Make us one in spirit and in Your truth. Let us always acknowledge You and let us not lean on our own understanding. Let us continue to look toward You in good times and bad times. You are our very help in time of trouble. We love you and we magnify your Name. We ask it all in Jesus’ Name. 

Amen.
