The Lord bless you and keep you. The Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you. The Lord lift up His countenance upon you and give you Peace. (Numbers 6: 24-26)

Random Bible Verse(s) of the Day

"Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed'nego answered the king, 'O Nebuchadnez'zar, we have no need to answer you in this matter.  If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace; and he will deliver us out of your hand, O king.  But if not, be it known to you, O king, that we will not serve your gods or worship the golden image which you have set up.'"  Daniel 3: 16-18

God has already saved all those who believe from the eternal fires of Hell through the blood of his Son, Jesus Christ.  All of us to proclaim Christ as Lord and believe in his atoning sacrifice have already found redemption and salvation from the fire.  Shadrach, Meshach and Abed'nego knew that Nebuchadnez'zar could do nothing more to them that take their mortal life.  They knew that God would deliver them.

When we are faced with the false gods and lifeless idols of the world, do we have the conviction of our faith to reject them, even when it might seemingly cost us in the short term?  Are we prepared to stand up and say that we worship the One, True God, and therefore nothing in the world can really harm us?

Those are questions we should answer for ourselves each and every day as we offer ourselves to God, asking his forgiveness for our sins and recommitting ourselves to him, the only true God.
