Today’s verse

Romans 6:16 NLT
Don’t you realize that you become the slave of whatever you choose to obey? You can be a slave to sin, which leads to death, or you can choose to obey God, which leads to righteous living.

Today’s reading
Matthew 10

Matthew 10:25-28 NLT
[25] Students are to be like their teacher, and slaves are to be like their master. And since I, the master of the household, have been called the prince of demons, the members of my household will be called by even worse names! [26] "But don’t be afraid of those who threaten you. For the time is coming when everything that is covered will be revealed, and all that is secret will be made known to all. [27] What I tell you now in the darkness, shout abroad when daybreak comes. What I whisper in your ear, shout from the housetops for all to hear! [28] "Don’t be afraid of those who want to kill your body; they cannot touch your soul. Fear only God, who can destroy both soul and body in hell.



Jesus is no mere optimist—he doesn’t try to pump us up with empty promises or sunny predictions about the future. He always tells it like it is, never shying away from hard realities. If he were always trying to “spin” reality for us, we’d quickly descend into fear, because mere optimism has no real power to change our reality. And here he is painting a picture of reality for his disciples: They will face hard things as they go out in his name to bring his message of hope and redemption to people who need it, but they are to move in boldness, not fear. Everything, he says, will be exposed to the light in the end, and if the worst someone can do to us is kill our body, then we have nothing to worry about. If we believe we will live forever with him, then nothing—not even our physical death—can really destroy us.

Today’s devotion
My Utmost for His Highest

…No release or escape from it will ever come from any human power, but only through the power of redemption. You must yield yourself in utter humiliation to the only One who can break the dominating power in your life, namely, the Lord Jesus Christ. “…

Love & The Outcome

Today’s prayer
Dear Lord God, Abba Father, thank You for this day, these Words, this time. While there is so much I don’t know or understand. I do this… Your grace is sufficient for me, for Your power is perfected in my weakness. For when I am weak, then I am strong. And… as I live in You, my love grows more perfect. In this I have hope that someone will see Your grace and love in me, and choose to get to know You. Amen
