This week’s scripture is from 1 Kings:

“… for the glory of the Lord filled his temple.” (1 Kings 8:11b)

In Solomon’s day the glory of the Lord filled the temple, but in our time the Holy Spirit resides within us. If you have come to salvation through the Lord Jesus Christ, then the Holy Spirit lives within you, for the Lord has said that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, and the glory of God will shine out of you. Remember who you belong to; remember what He has said and what He has promised. You carry the Holy Spirit of God within you. Overflow with the Spirit and pour out upon others that which He has given to you. Pour out blessing, pour out mercy, pour out healing, pour out the Lord’s grace, pour out His love.

May the glory of the Lord shine forth from you today as a child of the living God.

This week’s scripture is from 1 John:

See what great love the Father has lavished on us… (1 John 3:1)

God loves us with an everlasting love. He has blessed us with His love, for He sacrificed His precious son that we might be reconciled to Him and become His children. His love for us is boundless if we belong to Him, and we can never be beyond His love. There is no place we can go where His love cannot find us. There is nothing we can do that His love cannot redeem us. If we fail, He still loves us. If we sin, He still loves us, and He waits for us to repent and come back to Him. Oh how great is the Lord’s love toward us. Let us give thanks to the Lord for His great love, and praise Him who loves us with an everlasting love.

May you know the Lord’s great love for you this very day.

This week’s scripture is from Acts:

“And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit …”    (Acts 2:4a)

Praise the Lord for His blessings! Praise the Lord for His promises! Praise the Lord for His faithfulness! Celebrate! For as He promised, the Father sent the Holy Spirit to dwell within all who believe and are baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of their sins. He is come to be helper and counselor, the Spirit of Truth from the One who is the Truth, to teach us all things and remind us of the words of the Lord, the words of life, and to testify to the truth, to testify that Jesus Christ is Lord and Savior. Sing Hallelujah! Embrace the Holy Spirit and be glad, for He cares for you. Praise be to God.

May the mighty Holy Spirit be a blessing to you today.

This week’s scripture is from 1 Thessalonians:

“Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”   (1 Thess. 5:16-18)

What blessings the Lord has poured out upon us. May we be ever mindful to thank the Lord with rejoicing and prayers for His surpassing love towards us as seen in our Lord Jesus Christ. May we give thanks in every circumstance, for we belong to Him and He is ever with us, through every trial as well as every blessing. May we learn to ever live in His presence and give thanks. Give thanks to the Lord.

The Lord bless you as you come to Him with a thankful and joyous heart.
