Now it is God who makes both us and you stand firm in Christ.
2 Corinthians 1:21
His Grace Transforms
More than ever, we feel pressured to have it together in all areas of our lives. Sometimes it’s tempting to compare ourselves to friends and others we see on Facebook and other social media sites. We want to change our lives and be just as happy and successful as they seem.
But we don’t have to change ourselves to earn God’s love. He loves us, and our experience of his grace transforms us from the inside out. You may never lose those extra pounds or keep all your resolutions. And the good news is that you don’t have to!
You will naturally become more like Christ when you draw closer to him, enjoy getting to know him better, and serve him out of gratitude, not obligation. Sometimes the best way to grow in our faith is to stop trying so hard to be a better person.
Pray: “Lord, remind me that I don’t have to try so hard today. Since I can’t earn your favor, I can relax and simply focus on loving and serving you.”

Dear Sister and Brother,
- 1. God IS in control even when everything in our live seems to be crashing down around us.
- 2. Life is not always fair, it rains on the just and the unjust…we should not compare our lives to others but focus on the plan God has for us.
- 3. Bad things will happen in this world, but God promised us a home in heaven if we believe in Jesus. One without sorrow, pain or death…where we never will grow old.
Please share Jesus Daily with your friends and family…
