Today's Verse: Luke 19:10 (KJV)

Wednesday, May 15, 2019

For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.
— Luke 19:10 (KJV)

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

Jesus came so that the last could be first, the sick could be healed, the sinners could be saved, and the lost could be found. That was his purpose: to fix that which was broken — not just us, but our world, our humanity, and all that goes with it. So how can we wear the name of Jesus and not live with his passion and purpose toward what we see lost in our world?

My Prayer...

O loving Father and Almighty God, please stir a holy passion in your people, and especially in me, so that we may more nearly reflect Jesus' purpose in our lives, our families, and our churches. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
