The Bible says in the letter to the Romans, chapter 1
Romans 1: 1 - 6
From Paul, a slave of Christ Jesus, called to be an apostle and set apart for God's good news.
God promised this good news about his Son ahead of time through his prophets in the holy scriptures. His Son was descended from David.
He was publicly identified as God's Son with power through his resurrection from the dead, which was based on the Spirit of holiness. This Son is Jesus Christ our Lord.
Through him we have received God's grace and our appointment to be apostles. This was to bring all Gentiles to faithful obedience for his name's sake.
You who are called by Jesus Christ are also included among these Gentiles.
(Common English Bible)

Every person born on this earth is being called by God to put their faith in the grace of Jesus Christ.
For this purpose God chose Paul and made him an apostle to call every kind of human being to put their faith in Jesus.
It takes much grace to do this kind of assignment successfully, and Paul did this faithfully for the rest of his life.

He says that in this grace, there is an ability to obey God that comes to us when we put our faith in Jesus.
You may be wondering what it means to put your faith in Jesus.
It means to rest the whole weight of your person on Him, much the way to rest your body on a comfortable chair when you sit down.

Talk to Him, He is waiting to listen and respond to you. Here are some words you can use.
Pray aloud: that is, loudly enough for you to hear yourself:

Lord Jesus, today I want to put my faith in You.
I am resting the whole weight of my person upon You,
because You are the only One Who can forgive my sins and put me back together again.
Please give me now the grace to obey You
so that all Your blessings will flow unhindered into my life.
I love You, Lord Jesus.
Thank You for accepting me.
Please make Yourself real to me
and let me know that I am Yours.

See you tomorrow, God willing,
when you'll find a new thought here to challenge you!
Meanwhile, have a great day walking with the Lord!
