VERSE OF THE DAY:

REFLECTION NOTES AND LESSONS LEARNED:
Our God is the merciful God (Psalm 103:8). Our God does not tolerate sin (Isaiah 59:2), but God does choose to have mercy on those who repent from their sins during His grace period (Joel 2:12-13 and John 3:16-18). Our God is wise, powerful, and full of understanding (Psalm 147:5 and 1 Timothy 1:17). Our God is good to all people (Psalm 145:9). In today’s study of the Bible, we read about how Absalom got caught in a tree and was executed during a battle, how King David returned back to Jerusalem and mourned because of Absalom, and how Sheba rebelled against King David. As believers in God, it is always good and important for us to keep in mind that, our God is the merciful God (Psalm 103:8), but God does not tolerate sin (Isaiah 59:2), and that, sin can have very bad consequences (Romans 6:23). God is the just Judge (Psalm 7:11). It is a blessing when God forgives our sins (Psalm 32:1-2), and when God cleanses us from all our sins (1 John 1:9). As believers in God, it is always good for us to forgive others of the wrongs that they have done to us (Matthew 5:7 and Matthew 6:15). God loves all people, and God wants to save all the people of the world that will come to Him for eternal salvation (John 3:16-17). If you are not yet saved by God, repent and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved by God. Amen. May God bless you today, everyday, and forevermore in Jesus’ Name, Amen.
SALVATION REMINDER NOTE:
God loves you so much. God does not want you to perish. Today is the day of salvation. If you are not yet saved, repent and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, and you shall be saved. And, by the grace of God, if you are already saved, share the message of salvation with others, and God will greatly bless you in Jesus’ Name, Amen.
