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.
“Christianity without the living Christ is inevitably Christianity without discipleship, and Christianity without discipleship is always Christianity without Christ.”
Philippians 1:21 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
To Live Is Christ
21 For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain.
Abba, in the name of our Lord Jesus, Your servant praises You. Thank You for this morning and for new opportunities to be discipled by You. Bless You for showing us what obedience looks like. Thank You for living out the model and example for us. Help us to live in obedience. Show us our selfish ways and provide Your Holy Spirit to guide us into truth. Help our unbelief in trusting You and releasing our grip on the things of earth. May our gaze be continually on the heavenly places and our hearts connected to Yours. In Jesus’ name, amen.
