Here are my reflections and comments from today’s scripture from Our Daily Inspirations App.
My brothers and sisters in Christ, before I read or comment on God’s word, I pray that He prepares my heart to receive his guidance and ask that He uses me as his vessel to comment on His word. If you want to leave comments or feedback, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org. I will have Jesus more actively influence each thought, word, and action in my life by seeking Him 24/7/365. God bless you.
The scripture is from John 1:1-4: “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made through him. Without him, nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and the life was the light of men.”
The devotion is titled The Life-Giver and the Light-Bearer by Pastor Ken. Pastor Ken starts with today’s verse. He says that today’s verse expresses the truth about Jesus with two basic words: life and light. Jesus is the Life-Giver. The word “Life” refers to eternal life. This is something you could never get on your own. Earthly death cannot take this gift from you. The gift of eternal life is ours from God through Jesus. Jesus is the Light-Bearer, the name of the long-awaited Messiah. Jesus is God in the flesh.
Jesus also gives you something more than you deserve. He gives you abundant life which is filled with unmerited grace and blessings (John 10:10).
Today is yours, a day given to you by God to enjoy the hope of eternal life, abundantly illuminated by Jesus.
Reflections, Questions, and Challenges for Us: What changes must you make to put your full trust in Jesus as your Life-Giver and follow Him as your Light-Bearer?
Here is my response, yours may be different: I already put my full trust in Jesus as my Life-Giver and to follow Hin as my Light-Bearer.
A Personal Prayer for us: Heavenly Lord, thank you for the material blessings you provide to us every day. Please help us remember these things are Yours. Help us to honor You in the way we care for them. In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.
