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 read matthew 9 to help you think more like Jesus. Lord, thank You for having the authority to forgive my rebellion (9:6). Help me also recognize Your authority to lead me as Matthew did (9:9). Keep me trusting You when the world doubts You and laughs at me for trusting You (9:24). Help me share as persistently as those who had been healed of blindness (9:31). Let me feel Your compassion for the crowds who don't know Your salvation or leadership (9:36). Send out workers to harvest those ready to trust You even if it means I am one You want to send out (9:38).
