Morning Matthew 18:23-30 Noon Psalms 125
Evening Romans 5:6
I knew you. I knew you existed, but I never made up my mind about you. Dear reader, I want to relate the encounter I had with God. At the age of 25 I began to have health problems, I had to undergo surgery. I confess that the fear of dying invaded me and in my despair, I uttered these words: "God, I don't want to die, I promise to look for you, but don't let me go in sin." Thank God, everything went well, but my prayer I made to God remained in my mind. After 15 days of recovery, I went to a special church program in which our brother Geovanny Ruano was also visiting. God already had everything prepared for me; that night was the beginning of my renewal. I felt his presence, I heard his voice, his call. God calls us in many ways. Do not deny yourself the happiness of being one of his chosen ones. It’s worth giving your everything to God, He can give life to a dried flower. His call touched the depths of my being and after a few weeks, I was immersed in the waters of baptism. Now, I have a reason to live.
Your call transformed my life, you arrived just in time. Juan 8:39-41

Morning Matthew 18:23-30
23 Therefore is the kingdom of heaven likened unto a certain king, which would take account of his servants.
24 And when he had begun to reckon, one was brought unto him, which owed him ten thousand talents.
25 But forasmuch as he had not to pay, his lord commanded him to be sold, and his wife, and children, and all that he had, and payment to be made.
26 The servant therefore fell down, and worshipped him, saying, Lord, have patience with me, and I will pay thee all.
27 Then the lord of that servant was moved with compassion, and loosed him, and forgave him the debt.
28 But the same servant went out, and found one of his fellowservants, which owed him an hundred pence: and he laid hands on him, and took him by the throat, saying, Pay me that thou owest.
29 And his fellowservant fell down at his feet, and besought him, saying, Have patience with me, and I will pay thee all.
30 And he would not: but went and cast him into prison, till he should pay the debt.
Noon Psalms 125
1 They that trust in the LORD shall be as mount Zion, which cannot be removed, but abideth for ever.
2 As the mountains are round about Jerusalem, so the LORD is round about his people from henceforth even for ever.
3 For the rod of the wicked shall not rest upon the lot of the righteous; lest the righteous put forth their hands unto iniquity.
4 Do good, O LORD, unto those that be good, and to them that are upright in their hearts.
5 As for such as turn aside unto their crooked ways, the LORD shall lead them forth with the workers of iniquity: but peace shall be upon Israel.
Evening Romans 5:6
For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.
