Day #21

God's kindness has resulted in forgiveness and salvation for you.
21 of 52


Hopefully these quiet times have become the highlight of your day. You should look forward to spending time reading and learning about God. If not, you should do them anyway. Here is why. Let's say you woke up this morning, and your body just didn't feel like breathing. Maybe you were getting tired of breathing every day. Should you skip breathing for a day? That could be a problem. You may not feel like having your study time every day but do it anyway for the sake of your spiritual health. Let it become as natural to you as breathing.


Breathe deeply from John 8-11 for Day Twenty-one.


When the woman in John 8 was caught in the act of adultery, she could have been stoned to death according to the law. She deserved death, but instead she received mercy. Does that sound like anybody you know? Three weeks ago, you were lost in your sins. You deserved death according to Romans 6:23, but instead you received God's mercy and your sins were pardoned. God's kindness has resulted in forgiveness and salvation for you. Never take for granted the goodness and compassion of God. Without it we would all be lost.

John 8:36 says, "So if the Son sets you free, you really will be free." Free indeed. Through Christ there is real freedom. Once you were shackled by sin but Christ has set you free. Do you like that verse? Well then, write it out on a card and commit this verse to memory. What a wonderful thought to have on your mind all day. God's Word is so rich with encouraging messages. Allow God to guide you this day by the encouragement you have received from His Word.
