“He has shown you, O mortal, what is good.
And what does the Lord require of you?
To act justly and to love mercy
and to walk humbly with your God.”
These past weeks, this piece of scripture has been at the forefront of my heart and mind. Ponder it dear friends. What does God truly desire for and from us? It is quite simple, yet all too often we turn our focus to the self, making it more complicated than God desires. Look again and find God’s mercy. Act justly. Love mercy. Walk humbly WITH God! The road may be windy at times, but God journeys with you regardless.
“Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one
comes to the Father except through me.”
Today is a day we call Maundy Thursday, also known as Commandment Thursday. As we near the end of our Lenten journey to the cross, I am drawn to these words of Jesus. A reminder to us that at all times and under all circumstances Jesus is TRUTH and Jesus is LIFE. Too often we find ourselves searching. Searching for what we should believe and what we should stand for. This life we have been given is filled with many questions. Every day we must discern how we are to act and what we are to say. Now is the time for us to decide if we truly believe in Jesus as the Savior of the world. If so, then Jesus really is the WAY, the TRUTH and the LIFE.
Receive Jesus this day.
