2 Samuel 2:12-3:39, John 13:1-30, Psalm 119:1-16, Proverbs 15:29-30 are today’s readings!
The Spirit of Jesus…
John 13:3 Jesus knowing that the Father had given all things into his hands, and that he was come from God, and went to God;
4 He riseth from supper, and laid aside his garments; and took a towel, and girded himself.
5 After that he poureth water into a bason, and began to wash the disciples’ feet, and to wipe them with the towel wherewith he was girded.
13 Ye call me Master and Lord: and ye say well; for so I am.
14 If I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet; ye also ought to wash one another’s feet.
15 For I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done to you.
16 Verily, verily, I say unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord; neither he that is sent greater than he that sent him.
And so the fight goes on, always beginning within our heart. No matter how great the leader, how great the work, how great we appear to be handling the responsibility, the question is always: in what spirit shall we lead? Do we gently wash feet, and love people to life, deliberately creating programs and processes, that empower people to walk with God in their callings and gifting, or when we don’t fully understand, do we draw the sword, and cut them off from their life source….
Father, grace me with wisdom to shepherd your people, to be gentle with them in their pain, or in the walls of misunderstanding, to be a support, piller, and help to them, as You guide them into the high calling of God in Christ Jesus! Amen!
Do you know Jesus?
Each day, we seek first the kingdom of God, and this post is designed to encourage you to read through your Bible, daily, each year.
Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
Joh 5:39 Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.
Each day, as we read, we must meet with Him, for He is life!
Knowing Him, is the difference between heaven and hell, healing and sickness, heartbreak or peace, success or failure…
Today, give Him your life, for He is King of the universe.
Ac 2:21 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.
Call on Him today! He knows you, and He loves you!
Ro 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
“Father God in heaven, I come to you now, and ask that You would forgive me. I choose to believe, that You raised Jesus from the dead, and Lord Jesus, I receive You now. Please come into my life, and fill me with Your presence, plan, and purpose, that I am created to live. Fill me with Your love, and may I obey, and love all those You place in my path, Amen.”
