QUICK NAVIGATION

  • Saturday, December 4

    President Joe Biden will be at the Camp David presidential retreat until tomorrow. He has no public events on his agenda at this time.

    The president signed the continuing budget resolution on Friday that was passed by both houses of Congress the day before. This measure is in effect until February 18, providing members of Congress time to deliberate and vote on budget appropriations for the fiscal year that began in October.

    The White House and secretaries of State and Defense have expressed concerns that Russia may invade Ukraine. White House Press Secretary Psaki stated that Secretary of State Blinken “has been in Europe this week consulting with our partners, European partners. And we have also been consulting, at the same time, closely with Congress.”
     
    She continued, “We want to make sure that we are prepared. We know what President Putin has done in the past. We see that he is putting in place the capacity to take action in short order. And should he decide to invade, that is why we want to be prepared and — in an area we have expressed serious concern about.”

    As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

    • For rejuvenation for the president and first lady at Camp David.
    • For wisdom for members of Congress as they discuss and vote on the federal budget and the president’s Build Back Better legislation.
    • For the president and his administration to look to the Lord for direction in handling foreign affairs.

PRESIDENT’S SCHEDULE


As we lift up the 117th United States Congress, we will highlight one elected senator or representative each day. Pray with us for each of them as they tackle their unique responsibilities and fulfill their oaths of office.

  • The Grace Gift

    We are justified by his grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus.  – Romans 3:24

    It is easy to focus on the Holiness of God and assume the highness of His character keeps Him locked away in realms of glory, OUTSIDE of your messy, sin-filled world. But reconsider that picture for a moment and consider the God of Glory right here in the middle of your holiday season showing up as the best gift-giver ever. 

    In the first acts of creation, God built an environment specifically for you, giving you Earth as a home and a place to meet Him. Sun, moon, and stars were set in place so you could get an idea of His size and power. Life itself is given to you so you might seek Him as the Author of such wonder. And then He offers you His presence in grace. 

    Many misconstrue God’s grace as a reward instead of a gift. Some even convince themselves His favor is found through accomplishing good deeds and religious practices. But that is not true. God invites you into His fellowship as a costly and gracious gift, giving you a reason for gratitude, not as a reward for self-righteous effort. 

    It turns out God’s gift of grace, redemption, is not a “what” but a “who.” In the life and death of Jesus of Nazareth, you have been given the key to personally knowing the God of Glory. Jesus said it plainly, “Whoever has seen me has seen the Father” (John 14:9). 

    God chose the perfect gift for you, peace with Him through the redemption in Jesus Christ. Pray for people across America to recognize and receive that great gift this Christmas season. 

    Today’s Verse: Romans 3:24

    and are justified by his grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus,

    4 But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, 5 even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved— 6 and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, 7 so that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. 8 For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, 9 not a result of works, so that no one may boast. 10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.
