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 be shaped by Matthew 7. Lord, take every log from my eye so I can help my church family be more holy (7:3-5). Lead me to want to ask and ask for the very things that You want (7:7-9). Thank you for being the Giver of incredible gifts (7:10-11). Don't let me follow the crowd through the easy way that ends in destruction. Help me truly believe that real life will often be the difficult and lonely road (7:13-14). Produce good fruit in me (7:15-20). Don't allow me just to say You are my Lord, but drive me to follow you as my Lord today by doing Your will (7:21-23). Don't let me hear you and then disobey what I hear (7:26).
