My Journal for Today: Today’s Our Daily Bread author, Bill Crowder, got right to the main point of his teaching today when he charged his readers (me) to insure that our actions/choices reflect the very Name of the One Who came and was named of God to save all mankind.
God had His Son named to reflect His mission on earth; and we read two of those names in today’s highlight passage … Immanuel … “God in us” … and Jesus, “Jehovah, Who Saves.” And Crowders question is framed in the reality of how we live our lives. And I’m challenged to answer as to whether I’m living up to the Name of my Lord and Savior … today and all days?
I must stand before my God one day to answer that question; and prayerfully I will hear Him say, “… Well done, my faithful servant!!”
My Prayer Today: Oh Lord, … may I live today … and all days … to honor Your Name. Amen
