Daily Reading: Numbers 14:1-15:16, Mark 14:53-72, Psalm 53:1-6. Proverbs 11:4

Daily Verse: “Riches do not profit in the day of wrath, but righteousness delivers from death.” Prov. 11:4

Faith brings life.

God looks at our hearts, not our bank accounts. Placing faith in Christ leads to righteousness pleasing to God. Hope comes with Jesus. No longer do we need to fear death. When life on earth ends, eternal life begins without pain and suffering.

Riches rot away on earth; you can’t buy your way into eternity with Jesus. But you can spend your days practicing Godly virtues:

“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things, there is no law.” Galatians 5:22-23

Just like anything else in life, we must practice. Pro athletes didn’t wake up one day at the top of their sport; they practiced. Billy Graham didn’t wake up a world-renowned evangelist, he practiced faith daily, and God blessed Billy’s efforts.

Place your faith in Jesus, then become a master of the faith by practicing it daily.

Lord, forgive us for getting caught up in the riches of this world.  Help us practice our faith daily, blessing our efforts and helping us become more like Jesus.  IJNIP. Amen
