WORD OF THE DAY: (31 July 2013)

[John 1:10-14] NKJ
JESUS, THE SON OF GOD:
10. He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him. 
11. He came to His own, and His own did not receive Him.
12. But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His Name. 
SHORT PRAYER: Thank You Father God that You sent Your Son Jesus Christ into the world to dwell among us. Thank You that through Him that we are also now Your children. We believe that Lord, in the Name of Jesus. We read in Romans 8:16-17 that the Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are now children of God, and if we are children, we are heirs of God and joint-heirs with Christ - then we will also be glorified with Him. That is wonderful and awesome Lord God and we thank you and praise You for that. Amen and Amen.
