Jesus Demands Obedience

A Truth to Live – Sometimes my predicaments and difficulties are caused because I live in a broken world. Other times I suffer because of evil or as a result of unwise decisions. Jesus has the power to heal and restore, and He demands complete obedience.

Scripture – “As he was going to a village, ten men who had leprosy met him. They stood at a distance and called out in a loud voice, ‘Jesus, Master, have pity on us.’ When He saw them, He said, ‘Go show yourselves to the priests.’  And as they went, they were healed.”  Luke 17:11-19

Prayer – Eternal and Gracious Father, today I come to You knowing that You are all powerful and able to heal.  Help my response to You be to remain faithful and obedient so that I will not hinder Your work in my life. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
