Verse of the Day


Verse of the Day for Wednesday, July 12, 2017:

Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it. — Matthew 7:13-14

Thoughts on Today’s Verse….

“Majority rules!” That’s the edict of democracy. This has been a blessed political philosophy for so many people over the course of history. But, “majority rule” doesn’t apply to the Kingdom of God. God sets the standard, not us. God’s holiness is the goal, not just trying to be better than someone else. Most, regretably, will never find the way of the Lord. They want it their way. One crucial problem with wanting things our way: it leads to ultimate disaster. God, the Creator and Sustainer of all life, is the only one who can set life’s agenda. Let’s ask for his help and guidance for our way!

My Prayer…

Father, have your way with my heart, my thoughts, my words, my time, my job, my family, and my life. I want to live in a way that pleases you. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
