Today’s Verse – Ecclesiastes 7:20

There is not a righteous man on earth who does what is right and never sins. —Ecclesiastes 7:20 Thoughts on Today's Verse... Yep, we're all broken, flawed, and tainted (Romans 3:9-11, 23-24). Or, at least, that is what we were before God saved us, the Spirit sanctified us, and Jesus brought us into his family (1 Corinthians 6:9-11). Praise God! Praise God because of his grace. Praise God for the work of Jesus. Praise God for the presence of the Holy Spirit. Because of these, we can stand before God holy, without blemish, and free from accusation (Colossians 1:22). My Prayer... [...]

The One upon whom all eternity hinges will take time to comfort us personally. The One who has "destroyed death and brought immortality to light" (2 Timothy 1:10) sends us the Holy Spirit as our needed [...]

Jesus came, and many people praised God. He came so people could see God. Do you know Jesus? If you do, do you know him as well as [...]

He said:] "Nothing outside a person can defile them by going into them. Rather, it is what comes out of a person that defiles them.'" —Mark 7:15 Thoughts on Today's Verse... We get so hung up on externals, appearances, and facades. Jesus cuts to the core of God's concern — our spiritual heart condition.
