DAILY ENCOURAGEMENT – THURSDAY THOUGHTS #17… Changed Lives In Christ.

Longfellow could take a worthless piece of paper, write a poem on it, and instantly make it worth thousands of dollars -- and it's called genius.

Rockefeller could sign his name to a piece of paper and make it worth millions of dollars -- and it's called riches.

A mechanic can take material worth only five dollars and make it worth five hundred -- and it's called skill.

An artist can take a fifty-cent piece of canvas, paint a picture on it, and make it worth thousands of dollars -- and it's called art.

Jesus Christ can take a worthless, sinful life, wash it in His blood, put His Spirit in it, and make it valuable to God -- and that's called sanctification.

The Lord is in the business of taking rough, raw material and using it, transforming men by His power to be the extension of His work in the world. – Source unknown.

Loving Father, I thank you for my changed life in Jesus Christ; Help me by the power of the Holy Spirit, to remind myself daily of it’s benefits and blessings. For your glory and for the extension of your Kingdom, in Jesus wonderful and mighty name I pray, amen!

Be encouraged
