In other words, when all else fails, and you're not sure what to do, stick with other believers and obey the Lord's clear instructions. Doesn't sound very fancy, but it was the key for the Lord's disciples. These two commitments helped them move from despair to passionate hope and from confusion to living on mission for Jesus.
Father, I confess that I often want things to be spectacular or exciting or inspiring. Yet I know that frequently my sense of your presence and my most effective ministry occur when I do the next right thing that I know Jesus wants me to do and I do it with other believers. Give me a heart of obedience and a passion to be with your people both in times of group worship and study and in times of Christian service to others. In Jesus' name, I pray. Amen.
What Jesus Did! is a series of one-year devotional guides through each gospel, using one short scripture passage each day and following the Gospel in sequential order. Each devotional consists of a scripture passage and a reflection and a prayer which open up the day's scripture and show how it challenges you to live for Jesus.
