One thought-One Scripture passage-One minute-Each day

One Minute With God

Imagine God draping His arm around your shoulders every morning, and then telling you one thing. What if He told you one thing, every day, that is true; one thing that could transform your outlook on life? And what if it only took Him one minute? That’s what "One Minute With God" is all about. Every verse in the Bible comes straight from the heart of God. Every passage contains God-breathed words meant to encourage His children (Romans 15:4). God promises that the time we spend in His Word will be worth our while: "As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater, so is My word that goes out from My mouth: It will not return to Me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it" (Isaiah 55:10-11). How exciting! Let’s spend one minute with God together.

Jesus died

Jesus could have come down
off the cross
and saved Himself.
He might have lived 70, 80 or 90 years -
teaching, loving, telling people about His Father.
Then He might have died
of natural causes
and gone back to heaven -
where He came from -
where He belonged.
And then we would have been left
to die in our sin
and go where we belong.

"For the wages of sin is death,
but the free gift of God
is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord."
Romans 6:23 ESV
