“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Matthew 7:21

TODAY’S WORD…

.

Jesus said,

“It is not those who say to me, “Lord, Lord,” who will enter the kingdom of heaven,

but the person who does the will of my Father in heaven.”

.

– Matthew 7:21 (JB)

REFLECTION…

.

To be genuine, prayer must be accompanied by a persevering effort to do God’s will.

Similarly, in order to do His will it is not enough to speak about the things of God:

there must be consistency between what one preaches – between what one says…and what one does.

.

To enter the Kingdom of Heaven it is not enough to speak eloquently about holiness.

One has to practice what one preaches, to produce fruit which reflect one’s words.

.

Christians who do not strive to act in accordance with the demands of the faith they profess,

begin to weaken in their faith,

and to say things which are contrary to their faith.

.

.

.

PRAYER…

.

Father, I desire to remain faithful to You all the days of my life,

to serve You with my heart,

loving You above everything and everyone.

.

I desire to remain faithful to You

to serve You with my soul

as it lives for all eternity.

.

I desire to remain faithful to You

to serve You with my mind

and acknowledge You as the Giver of wisdom, knowledge and strength.

.

I desire to remain faithful to You,

to serve You with all my strength,

for even when I am weak, You make me strong.

.

Awesome God,

fill me with faith, hope and love,

and give me the resolve

to always do Your will

and to live in a manner worthy of Your grace.

.

.

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

Father, I desire to remain faithful to You all the days of my life.
