Ministry, leadership, discipleship, the local church and the deep riches of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments and how inscrutable his ways! “For who has known the mind of the Lord, or who has been his counselor? Or who has given a gift to him that he might be repaid?” For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be glory forever. Amen.
Today's time being shaped by the Word is in Matthew 3. Lord, let others see your clear rule in me. Turn me 180 degrees from the path of sin (3:2). Let me not be an obstacle to jesus' path (3:3). Don't let clothes or food be my priorities (3:4). Make me love others enough to tell them of the coming wrath (3:7). Help my life bear fruit that matches my claim to have repented (3:8). Not bearing fruit is serious because it could mean I am not Yours (3:10). Thank you that by faith, I can share in the delight that you have in Your Son (3:17).
