I am going to start posting some Scripture each day that I come across in my daily reading.
It is something that I have started each morning and has really helped me focus each day.
The verses will be ones God has drawn me to from the chapter I read.
It is amazing how much more you can get out of the bible each time you read it.
God’s word is amazing!
Scriptures for the day
John 8:31-32 (NKJV) – “…if you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”
John 8:7 (NKJV) – “…He who is without sin among you, let him throw a stone at her first.”
John 8:34-36 (NKJV) – “…most assuredly, I say to you, whoever commits sin is a slave of sin. And a slave does not abide in the house forever, but a son abides forever. Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.”
John 8:51 (NKJV) – “Most assuredly, I say to you, if anyone keeps My word he shall never see death.”

If you’re not certain you’re saved, here is what you should do, right now:
Acknowledge that you have sinned against a holy God and ask for forgiveness (even if you don’t feel you deserve it) (Rom. 3:23). Genuinely feel the pain of your sin and be willing to turn from it (repent) (Acts 3:19).
Believe in your heart and mind that Jesus is the Son of God, that he died on the cross for you (John 3:1-18) in your place, and was raised back to life. There is no one else you can turn to (John 14:6): “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
Confess that you are trusting Jesus as your personal Savior. Since Jesus is alive, you can talk to him. This is called prayer. So talk to him right now, in your own words, accept his invitation to know him.
It’s simple faith through grace, the kind of faith a little child would have.
“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith – and this not of yourselves, it is the gift of God – not by works, so that no one can boast.” (Eph. 2:8-9)
