TODAY’S WORD…

.

Jesus said,

“Anyone who loves their father or mother more than me

is not worthy of me;

anyone who loves their son or daughter more than me

is not worthy of me.

Whoever does not take up their cross and follow me

is not worthy of me.

.

Whoever finds their life will lose it,

and whoever loses their life for my sake will find it.”

.

– Matthew 10:37-39 (NIV)

REFLECTION…

.

There are people who are constantly concerned with themselves

and who act, above all, for their own satisfaction,

avoiding problems and discomfort at any cost.

.

Often and for the same reason,

there are those who are ready to accommodate and appease their loved ones

so as to avoid any negative backlash,

even if it means having to bend their Christian principles

and disregard God’s Law.

.

Endangering our eternal salvation

in our efforts to avoid being unhappy in this life

may sound like folly…and it is…

yet so many seem to be prepared to do it!

.

If, on the other hand, we forget ourselves and give ourselves to God,

and do as He tells us even if it entails suffering and sacrifice,

the Spirit will fill us with true joy,

and give us a wonderful sense of great expectation

of the promised eternal life with Christ.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

Come Holy Spirit, be my Counsellor,

and sustain me as I go through life following Jesus.
