Today is the day of our salvation. Today is a special day to give praise and thanksgiving to the God of Israel. Today we pray for our daily bread. Today we do our daily ‘Bible Companion’ readings: “This is the day that Yahweh has made, we will rejoice and be glad in it” (Psalm 118:24). “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever” (Hebrews 3:7). “Today if you shall hear his voice harden not your hearts, as in the rebellion like the time of testing in the wilderness”. Let us learn from the children of Israel (Hebrews 3:12-13). “For whatever things were written previously were written for our education that through the patience and comfort of scripture we might have hope” (Romans 15:4). “In hope of eternal life which God who cannot lie promised before time eternal” (Titus 1:2, and see Numbers 23:19).

Bro Marcus and fellow readers, today I am filled with a great joy to talk to you while somewhere else in the world, and I am in Kenya. We are together in God’s spirit. We are saved through hope, belief, baptism into Christ and obedience of faith until death. We hope to join together in God’s kingdom on earth and to be given eternal life by Jesus Christ of Nazareth, our Lord and Saviour (Romans 2:7; Revelation 22:12; 1 Peter 5:4).

God’s Word is full of examples of men and women who devoted their lives to serving Him. Hebrews chapter 11 speaks about the heroes of faith that have not received their reward yet; because of you and others they have to wait. We have to accept the love of God, the grace of God, the mercy of God to us. Let us make use of today to praise and give thanks to the God of Israel (Hebrews 11:39-40).

Bro John Owalo Onani (Kaksingri, Kenya)
