Hallelujah, praise the living God for another day to pray for you all and be used by Him. Today I offer these lines from Dietrich Bonhoeffer.
“You can only learn what obedience is by obeying. It is no use asking questions; for it is only through obedience that you come to learn the truth.”
2 Peter 1:5-7 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
5 Now for this very reason also, applying all diligence, in your faith supply moral excellence, and in your moral excellence, knowledge, 6 and in your knowledge, self-control, and in your self-control, perseverance, and in your perseverance, godliness, 7 and in your godliness, brotherly kindness, and in your brotherly kindness, love.
Abba, in the name of our Lord Jesus, Your servant praises You. Bless You for Your perfect obedience to the Father. Your faithful obedience to love despite the circumstances. Thank You Holy Spirit for guiding us towards a diligent faith and trust in You. Lead us into a true life of obedience to our Maker so we can experience Your fruits that lead ultimately to agape love. Help Your servant to grow in knowledge and self-control to be a light of Yours in times of darkness for my brothers and sisters. Help them to be that light for Your servant in times of despair, and may it all be done to glory our Father in heaven. In Jesus’ name, amen.
