Saved and Saved Eternally

CALL TO PRAYER
Repeat and or meditate on this verse until your thoughts are centered on God.
 
To all that fear God's holy Name
his sure salvation's near;
and in its former happy state
our nation shall appear.
 —Psalm 85:9
Suggested tune: Stracathro (CM)


 
SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY
The haughtiness of people shall be humbled, and the pride of everyone shall be brought low; and the Lord alone will be exalted on that day.
—Isaiah 2:17
 
FOOD FOR THOUGHT
There is not one word in the Bible against a humble soul. There is not one curse against a sinner who feels his need and comes empty-handed! When we have done with self and with all self's hopes, projects, and plans—and trust only in the finished work of Jesus—then may we rejoice, for we are saved and saved eternally!
—Charles Spugeon
 
TODAY'S PRAYER
May the thought of Jesus' birth in a lowly manger make me more humble, Lord, at his coming, that I may receive him not in a spirit of loftiness which must look down, but in a spirit of humility, that I might reach out.

YOUR OWN PRAYERS
Allow the above to help guide your own confession, praise, thanksgiving, and/or petition.

THE LORD'S PRAYER
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy Name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil; for thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory forever. Amen.
 —Matthew 6:9-13
