'"Faye's Daily Words Of Encouragement # 317 Today's Word Is: Living"

Definition of the word Living: Which means having life or existence or pertaining to existence, or the condition of being alive.

Genesis chapter 2 - 7 : The Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

Job chapter 28 - 13 : Man knoweth not the p;rice thereof; neither is it found in the land of the living.

Job chapter 33 - 30 " To bring  back his soul from the pit, to be enlightened with the light of the living.

Psalms chapter 69 -28 : Let them be blotted out of the book of the living and not written with the righteous.

Songs of Solomon Chapter 4 - 15 : A fountain of gardens, a well of living waters, and streams from Lebanon.

John chapter 4 - 10: Jesus answered and said unto her, if thou knewest the gift of God and who it is that saith thee living water.

Roman chapter 12 - 1 : I beseech you therefore brethren, by the mercies of God that ye present your bodies unto God, as a living sacrifice, which is your reasonable service.

Hebrews chapter 10 - 20 : By a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us through the veil, that is, to say his flesh.

Today's daily words of encouragement word is Living: Which means having life or existence or pertaining to existence, or the condition of being alive. The bible says,"The Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul". This statement is an awesome revelation of the power of God, who loved us enough to breath life into our bodies. This is the best gift anyone can ever give us; and without God's gift , we would not have any being : or a chance of a future or possibility of eternal life.

The bible also states, "I beseech you therefore brethren, by the mercies of Go, that ye present your bodies as living sacrifices, which is your reasonable service.  We all should be proud and willing to sacrifice our services for God; after all he created us in his own image and gave us life and choices above the angels,plus he gave his only begotten son so we could have ever lasting life.
