Today’s Voice of Hope Verse
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
--John 3:16 (New International Version)
Today’s Voice of Hope Message
Whenever you want to know how much you are loved, just pick up your Bible and read John 3:16.
As a believer in Jesus Christ, we have a divine love that is beyond measuring. His grace supersedes all things. His love never ends. God loves us so much that all we have to do is ask and He will cleanse us from our sins so that we could be saved and able to enter into His Kingdom. His Son, Jesus Christ, pure and sinless, became the blood sacrifice for our sins. He bore our pain and suffering upon the cross and when He died, those of us who believe in Him were then and still are now able to go to Him to ask forgiveness of our sins.
It is like admitting we are guilty of something and we feel dirty. We go and take a warm shower to wash the dirt away. After that shower we feel clean and refreshed. That is how it feels to confess our sins to the Lord. He washes our sins away.
There is no sacrifice greater than to lay down our own life for someone else. Jesus loves us all. He laid down His life for us so that we could be freed from sin. He laid down His life for us so that we could have a way to enter into God’s Kingdom.
If we have sin in our life, all we need to do is lift up that sin to Jesus, and then ask Jesus for forgiveness of that sin. He will forgive us however many times we ask. And, as surely as we ask, we surely must believe that we are now clean and able to enter into the Kingdom of Heaven.
The Lord will always be with you.
Today’s Voice of Hope Prayer
Merciful God, I need to forgive, and I need to be forgiven. Let your healing hands wash over me as I both grant and receive the freedom that forgiveness brings. In Jesus’ Name, Amen

There was a time when it was required that we gave blood sacrifices for our sins. The sacrifices had to be unblemished and pure. Then there came a time when God, in His infinite love for us, made a way for us to be forgiven without having to give sacrifices. God chose Mary, a virgin of pure heart and love for God to birth a child, Jesus, to become our blood sacrifice.
The true gift of Christmas is the gift God gave to us when he sent his son to die as a sacrifice for our sins, thus giving us a path away from hell and toward Heaven.
Faithful are the wounds of a friend; but the kisses of an enemy are deceitful.
--Proverbs 27:6 (King James)
Gracious Lord, fill my life with the spirit of love and sacrifice. I bless you for the deep fellowships and tender intimacies; and on the eve of this Christmas ask your blessing for all, as my heart rings with joy for those whom I love. Amen.
