Thinking We Can Find Our Way In The Dark
Or Even In Daylight?
Take good care to observe the commandment and instruction that Moses the servant of the Lord commanded you, to love the Lord your God, to walk in all his ways, to keep his commandments, and to hold fast to him, and to serve him with all your heart and with all your soul.
Whoever serves me must follow me, and where I am, there will my servant be also. Whoever serves me, the Father will honour.
Words of Grace For Today
Getting around to serving Jesus, following him, and therein loving and serving God is not something for the faint of heart. If it is left up to us, none of are able to ‘get around to it’. Not on our own.
So why all the wasted words about trying to ‘get’ us to make these choices?
Nothing good comes of those words and nothing good goes into those words, no matter how many people and how many times people think that they are ‘encouraging, commanding, or inspiring’ others to follow Jesus and love God.
We are sinners. Simple start for each day is to admit that as best we can, and then pray for mercy.
Then maybe God will give us sight to see, hearing to hear, and heart to love God and God’s creation.
For today, how does it start?
Again, simply: confession, mercy, and hard work on our part, praying that God will make something good out of all our efforts.
