A Truth to Live – Following Jesus is the adventure of a lifetime! God has my absolute best in mind.
Sometimes it seems that God’s ways are more difficult or personally challenging. But, I know from experience that going my own way does not often end in good. In fact, left to my own directions, my path usually comes to a dead end.
Scripture – “If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me.” Luke 9:23
Prayer – Father, today, I will start a new path, chart a new course. I will forego my own impulses and ideas, choosing instead to follow the Jesus way. It is not the way of self-promotion or self-satisfaction, but it is the way of fulfillment. Following You, Jesus, requires thoughtful discipline and a consistent choosing of the Kingdom way. Lord, empower me today to carry Your cross and inspire me to follow Your better way. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
