God's word for today!

"From the fullness of His grace we have all received one blessing after another"(John 1:16, NIV).

God wants to pour out His blessing and favor upon you each and every day. It says in the Psalms that He daily loads us with benefits! So many people miss out on all that God has for them because they are weighted down by guilt and condemnation. But notice what today's verse tells us about where His blessings come from—the fullness of His grace. God's grace is His unmerited favor. That means we can't earn it. We can't work for it, and we can't change His mind about it. He pours out His blessing on us not because of what we do, but because of who He is. His blessings are based on His goodness, not ours. Today, receive His grace. Receive His forgiveness. Let go of guilt and condemnation. Open your heart and mind to what God wants to do in your life and get ready because He is pouring out His goodness upon you with one blessing after another!


Heavenly Father, I choose to receive Your grace today which is Your supernatural empowerment. I release guilt and condemnation and receive Your love and forgiveness. Search my heart, O God. Renew me and cleanse me by Your Word. In Jesus' Name. Amen.

Make Your Fantasy Football League More Fun

Are you the commissioner of your fantasy football league using satellite internet in Idaho, satellite internet Michgan or satellite internet CA? If you are, how can you make your league more exciting? A few popular ideas are to pay money to the highest point scorer for the year, to pay money to the highest point scorer for the week, to make a rename rule if one team wins by at least 50 points, and to offer a personal blog on what is going on in your fantasy football league. These are all good ideas, but there is one idea that tops them all. Since most or all of the players in your league will be guys, make a once per month Hooters rule. This means that once per month, everyone has to show up to watch one game together at Hooters. Make sure it's only one game. If it's two games, you're less likely to have a good turnout. If you make it one game, especially the early one, people will have the option to stay for game two. To entice people to show up, let them know that they will get an extra 5 points on their total score for that week. As long as everyone agrees to this rule prior to the season, this shouldn't be a problem. It will act as a great social event and should improve the bonds between the players in your league. To make sure everyone is aware of this rule, make an announcement via satellite internet prior to the season beginning.
