This is real love—not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins. 1 John 4:10 (NLT)
Some people try to use religion to try to control others. Some use religion as a list of do and don’ts to climb a ladder to God. But God loves us and gives us the free gift of grace and eternal life through His son. It’s His love that saves us, not anything we do. To learn more about God’s love for you, CLICK HERE.
What do you treasure most in life? Money? Sex? Popularity? Power? Let’s face it. What we think about and desire to have actually defines who we really are inside. In fact, our mind is the GPS that points us to our “treasure” and our heart is the engine that carries us to our “prize.”
All who have put their trust in Jesus Christ–and set their hearts and minds on things above (Colossians 3:2)–have found the greatest treasure of all. And as the Holy Spirit speaks through their internal GPS, they are guided along a path that leads to the ultimate prize: eternal life!
Are you ready for a new direction? Do you want to reset your spiritual GPS? Ron Moore’s 90-day devotional book will help you discover your greatest treasure of all–the hope of Jesus Christ living in you!
