Bible Study & Devotional (January 7, 2021)
Guiding Scripture: “Matthew 25:6-10”
🔴 SO CLOSE!
Life is not a game!
We must regard our lives as unique gifts from God. What we do daily shows our respect for and honor to God. It would be a sad day to come to the end of our life’s journey, but we did not seize the opportunity to be restored through belief in Jesus. So close! Your friends encouraged you with multiple reasons to believe in Christ, but you opted to purchase your salvation from the world.
God sent his only Son so that we could have eternal life and live in heaven with Him. Who will you believe? The greed of the world that seeks to kill, steal, and destroy, or the One who came to give abundant life?
~Diana L.W. Coleman
Let’s Pray: Lord, thank You for paying our sin debt by giving your life and making us your heirs. We owe you our life, our praise, our faithfulness, and our obedience. We worship and adore you, dear Savior. Amen
