Bible Study & Devotional Day 38
🔴 A Wise Choice
Guiding Scripture: Matthew 25:14-29
Unexpected chaos filled the week. No matter how much distance we put between things, it will pour over into other areas if something is left unresolved. I am grateful for God’s wisdom to control one crucial element: me. I thank Him for the knowledge to remain prepared. We have an opportunity to strengthen relationships with our sisters and brothers. We can achieve this by listening, praying, and following God’s will.
In today’s reading
Exodus 27:20-21, God commanded Israel’s people to bring pure olive oil for the lamps to burn continually. It represented the presence of the Lord set before the inner curtain that stood before the Ark of the Covenant. What a powerful reminder to do the necessary things to keep the oil of ‘faithfulness’ burning brightly.
I am excited to include a portion of Pastor Reason A. Chandler’s Sunday message. As God divinely orchestrated this sermon with our One Year Bible reading, I had to be obedient. Our Lord brings His children together to glorify Him in a mighty way. I am blessed to work with some incredible servants of God.
Pastor Chandler graciously permitted me to share a portion of ‘Faithfulness- Take the Risk’ along with this devotional ahead of its original air time of 11:00 AM. Please tune in and watch in its entirety. I pray it will bless you and lead you to continue reading the word of God. Links to Jackson Street United Methodist Church are below, and I encourage you to follow and subscribe.
