Peace & Blessings Beloved,
TGBTG for allowing us to see the start of another year. I pray all is well with you and yours. I know 2021 was wrought with challenge, trial, pain, depression, hopelessness, despair, and even loss. Some will say that 2022 can't be any worse, and are optimistic that this new US Presidential Administration will help usher in the peace & unity necessary for America to heal. What I want to share with you is the fact that, as Christians, we shouldn't concern ourselves with secular matters, which include any social and/or political agendas that are pushed or paraded in front of us. It is imperative that we operate with the proper perspective, and outlook on the world. In order to successfully do this we must first ensure that we're indeed a part of Christ's body. And that brings us to the first devotion of 2022.
If you have not given your life to Jesus Christ, I implore you to take the time to do so right now. I want to use three bible passages to lay the foundation & provide proper context for our salvation. If you have any questions concerning this matter, don't hesitate to reach out: firstname.lastname@example.org, or directly, if you have the means. Also, do note that we'll expound upon these verse, eventually, as we get into our bible studies.
As many of you already know, I am a stickler for context, and like to avoid using bible verses without any setup, or exposition otherwise. However, In the case of these three passages, the message and intent is explicitly clear, and gets to the heart of the matter at hand.
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
