Obey

My time with the Lord today was all too brief.

With a reading of John 7:14-18 I was struck by the understanding that the ‘Jews’, who were the religious leaders of Jesus’ day, had themselves gone so far astray and had taken the people with them. In John 7:17 Jesus told them that they didn’t recognize Jesus’ teaching was from God because they were not doing God’s will. They were not doing the will of God; they were not obeying God’s commands so they could not even recognize that the originator of Jesus’ teaching was God Almighty! These ‘religious leaders’ were actually plotting to murder Jesus! (Remember? Thou shalt not…)

Father, please teach me as I read, send your Spirit as I live each day and enlighten me so I  remember your commands. And obey them.

Please allow me the fruit of your Spirit. I want to live closer to you.

Love,

Your Tanngl
