Lean on Jesus

Today's Scripture

"For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God¡¯s glorious standard. Yet God, with undeserved kindness, declares that we are righteous. He did this through Christ Jesus when he freed us from the penalty for our sins." - Romans 3:23-24 NLT.

Thoughts for Today

Perhaps the most difficult¡ªand important kind of leaning is leaning on Jesus for finding peace with God. Difficult only because we make it so. Many people have been kept from finding peace with God because of an independent I can do it myself way of thinking. If I can just be good enough ... do enough nice things.

But the Bible tells us there is only one way to God: Jesus Christ. Jesus has paid the price for our sins. All we have to do is lean on him, receiving his gift of forgiveness, and become his follower.

Consider this 

If you have not yet received forgiveness through Jesus and made the choice to follow him, you can do it right now. Recognize that this is something you cannot do on your own ¡­ and lean on Jesus.

Prayer : Our Loving Heavenly Father, I have tried to live a good life, but I realize now that I can't earn my way into a relationship with you. I thank you that Jesus died on the cross for me. I ask forgiveness for my sins in his name and want to follow him in every area of my life. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."

Have a Blessed Thursday and God Bless you.
