In the third century Cyprian, the Bishop of Carthage, wrote to his friend Donatus, “It is a bad world, Donatus, an incredibly bad world. But I have discovered in the midst of it a quiet and holy people, who have learned a great secret. They have found a joy which is a thousand times better than any of the pleasures of our sinful life. They are despised and persecuted, but they care not. They are masters of their souls. They have overcome the world. These people, Donatus, are Christians . . . and I am one of them.” If you have repented of your sins and have received Christ as Savior, then you, too, are one of them.

Prayer for the day

Today, Lord God, I remember all those Christians who have gone before me and thank You for the inspiration of their memory. May I never take for granted the heritage I have in Christ Jesus.

    When you repent of your sins, do you need to name them or do you just say I repent of my sins? There is no way anyone can remember everything.

    To be a member of the family of God is an extraordinary privilege. I’ve done nothing to earn it. Membership is also free and eternal. Thank you Holy God.

    I have struggled to stay faithful throughout my life. My past, present and future always seem to collide leaving me more confused. How great thou are, amen!
