Verse of the Day:
“If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. ”
~Rom. 10:9

Quote of the Day:
“What unlocked the doors of the apostles hearts?  Simple.  They saw Jesus.  They encountered the Christ.  Their sins collided with their Savior and their Savior won.  What lit the boiler of the apostles was a red-hot conviction that the very one who should have sent them to hell went to hell for them and came back to tell about it.
~Max Lucado “Six Hours One Friday”

Verse of the Day:
“You radiate with such brilliance
that they cringe as before a furnace. ”
~Ps 21:9

Quote of the Day:
“To say there is no hell is to portray God with eyes blind to the hunger and evil in the world.  To say there is no hell is to say that God doesn’t care that people are beaten and massacred, that he doesn’t care that women are raped or families wrecked.  To say there is no hell is to say God has no justice, no sense of right and wrong, and eventually to say God has no love.  For true love hates what is evil”
~from And the Angels were Silent by Max Lucado

Lyrics of the Day:
“And every tear that had to fall from my eyes,
Everyday I wondered how I’d get through the night,
Every change, life has thrown me,
I’m thankful, for every break in my heart,
I’m grateful, for every scar,
Some pages turned,
Some bridges burned,
But there were lessons learned.”
~“Lessons Learned” by Carrie Underwood

Verse of the Day:
“Let love and faithfulness never leave you;
bind them around your neck,
write them on the tablet of your heart.”
~Prov. 3:3

Quote of the Day:
“Never did the obscene come so close to the holy as it did on Calvary. Never did the good in the world so tightly intertwine with the bad as it did on the cross. Never did what is right involve itself so intimately with what is wrong, as it did when Jesus was suspended between heaven and earth.”
~ Max Lucado No Wonder They Call Him the Savior

Verse of the Day:
“But God made the earth by his power,
and he preserves it by his wisdom.
With his own understanding
he stretched out the heavens.”
~Jer 10:12

Quote of the Day:
“Ambition is that grit in the soul which creates disenchantment with the ordinary and puts the dare into dreams”
~ Max Lucado

Lyrics of the Day:
“Cause this is what you’ve waited for
A chance to even up the score
And as these shadows fall on me now
I will somehow

Cause I’m picking up a message Lord
And I’m closer than I’ve ever been before

So if you have something to say
Say it to me now”
~“Say It to Me Now” by The Swell Season (the duo from “once”)

Verse of the Day:
“How can I pardon you?
For even your children have turned from me.
They have sworn by gods that are not gods at all!
I fed my people until they were full.
But they thanked me by committing adultery
and lining up at the brothels.
They are well-fed, lusty stallions,
each neighing for his neighbor’s wife.
Should I not punish them for this?” says the Lord.
“Should I not avenge myself against such a nation?”
~Jer 5:7-9

Quote of the Day:
“Risky love seizes the moment”
~ Max Lucado

Lyrics of the Day:
“oh half of my heart’s got a grip on the situation
half of my heart takes time
half of my heart’s got a right mind to tell you
that I can’t keep loving you
oh, with half of my heart”
~“Half of my Heart” by John Mayer

Verse of the Day:
“I will put my hope in God!
I will praise him again—
my Savior and my God!”
~Ps 43:5b

Quote of the Day:
“Off to one side sits a group of shepherds. They sit silently on the floor, perhaps perplexed, perhaps in awe, no doubt in amazement. Their night watch had been interrupted by an explosion of light from heaven and a symphony of angels. God goes to those who have time to hear him–and so on this cloudless night he went to simple shepherds.”
~ from “The Arrival” by Max Lucado

Lyrics of the Day:
“I heard the belIs on Christmas Day
Their old familiar carols play.
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of Peace on earth, good will to men.

I thought how as the day had come
The belfries of all Christendom
Had rolled along the unbroken song
Of Peace on earth, good will to men.

And in despair, I bowed my head:
‘There is no peace on earth,’ I said,
‘For hate is strong and mocks the song,
Of Peace on earth, good will to men.’

Then pealed the bells more loud and deep;
God is not dead, nor doth He sleep;
The wrong shall fail, the right prevail,
With Peace on earth, good will to men
~“I heard the Bells on Christmas Day” by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
