Let Jesus Guide the Way
I have come as a light into the world, so that everyone
who believes in Me would not remain in darkness.
John 12:46 HCSB

Is Jesus the cornerstone of your life . . . or have you relegated Him to a far corner of your life? The answer to this question will determine the quality, the direction, the tone, and the ultimate destination of your life here on earth and your life throughout eternity.

Thomas Brooks spoke for believers of every generation when he observed, “Christ is the sun, and all the watches of our lives should be set by the dial of His motion.” Christ, indeed, is the ultimate Savior of mankind and the personal Savior of those who believe in Him. As His servants, we should place Him at the very center of our lives. And every day that God gives us breath, we should share Christ’s love and His message with a world that needs both.

The dearest friend on earth is but a mere shadow compared with Jesus Christ. - Oswald Chambers

When we are in a situation where Jesus is all we have, we soon discover He is all we really need. - Gigi Graham Tchividjian

In your greatest weakness, turn to your greatest strength, Jesus, and hear Him say, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness” (2 Corinthians 12:9, NKJV). - Lisa Whelchel

Tell me the story of Jesus. Write on my heart every word. Tell me the story most precious, sweetest that ever was heard. - Fanny Crosby

Today’s Prayer
Dear Jesus, You are my Savior and my protector. Give me the courage to trust You completely. Today, I will praise You, I will honor You, and I will live according to Your commandments. Amen
