Today's Verse: John 12:26 (KJV)

Saturday, December 26, 2020

If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be: if any man serve me, him will my Father honour.
— John 12:26 (KJV)

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

We can't out serve, out love, or out give Jesus. He longs to bless us. He longs to pour out heaven's riches and grace upon us. Even more incredibly, he longs to honor us. When our lives are over, God the Father, Lord of the entire universe, will honor all who have served his Son and blessed others in Jesus' name! Unbelievable? No, just another example of God's incredible grace!

My Prayer...

Loving Father and Holy God, please help me follow the will of Jesus and serve others in his name. Father, I know that I cannot earn your grace, but I want to serve others in Jesus' name and help them find your grace. In the name of the Lord Jesus I pray. Amen.
