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 response of the disciples is an act of obedience, not a confession of faith in Jesus.”
John 14:23 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
23 Jesus answered and said to him, “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our abode with him.
Abba, in the name of our Lord Jesus, Your servant praises You. Thank You, King Jesus, for modeling obedience to us. Thank You, our heavenly Father, for Your loving-kindness and mercies. Thank You Holy Spirit, for guiding us in wisdom and understanding. Shine Your light upon us, turn Your face toward us, and use our obedience and faith for Your purposes. Bless our youth with open minds and soft hearts to receive Your truth in the face of any and all evil. Give Your angels charge concerning our welfare. Keep temptation out of view and out of mind and fill our hearts with Your love. In Jesus’ name, amen.
