” 8First, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for you all, because your faith is being proclaimed throughout the whole world. 9For God, whom I serve in my spirit in the preaching of the gospel of His Son, is my witness as to how unceasingly I make mention of you, 10always in my prayers making request, if perhaps now at last by the will of God I may succeed in coming to you. 11For I long to see you so that I may impart some spiritual gift to you, that you may be established; 12that is, that I may be encouraged together with you while among you, each of us by the other’s faith, both yours and mine.” Romans 1:8-12 (NASB)
I will start! 🙂 I want to praise the name of Jesus Christ for giving me the air in my lungs, the loving family that I never even dreamed to pray to one day call my own and most importantly, I praise the name of Jesus Christ for salvation from all the filth, shame, anger, resentment, rage, embarrassment and regrets = sin (1 John 4:9-10)… that I have been forgiven of (Ephesians 2:8-9) and washed clean of by the blood of Jesus Christ (Psalm 51:7) when He took my punishment on the cross (Isaiah 53:5). And with Christ as my Lord and my Savior, my life has been given greater meaning than a paycheck with many zeros (Deuteronomy 10:14). From that moment of accepting Jesus Christ as my Lord and asking for forgiveness for the myriad of ways I have missed the mark, my life has been infused with a peace that surpasses understanding due to Jesus’ ever present help (Philippians 4:7). No matter what the storm, no matter what unexpected news may be present in your story, take heart–Jesus Christ is ready to walk with you through it and use it for His glory and your good (Romans 8:28).
Share your praise below…come on, now… 🙂 LET OUR PRAISES RISE–Jesus Christ alone is worthy of our praise. 🙂
