Hallelujah, praise the living God for another day to pray for you all and be used by Him. Today I offer this line from Dietrich Bonhoeffer.
“The call to follow implies that there is only one way of believing on Jesus Christ, and that is by leaving all and going with the incarnate Son of God.”
Luke 9:62 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
62 But Jesus said to him, “No one, after putting his hand to the plow and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.”
Abba, in the name of our Lord Jesus, Your servant praises You. Bless You, Jesus, for calling us to follow. Forgive us for not hearing or paying attention to the call. Please do not relent from speaking to us. Use us and others to wake up the sleepy and echo Your word to those that do not hear. Help us to see with Your eyes the false treasures we cling to. Let us see them as the rubbish they are, that all will result in disappointment given enough time. You alone are not wasting away and are everlasting. Please grant us faith and belief in this simple truth. In Jesus’ name, amen.
