Key Thought

Jesus was concerned that his precious followers could be led astray. He still is today. As Jesus' followers, it is not enough for us to defend the truth; we must go in search of those that have been led astray by false teachers and false messiahs as well as those who become entangled in sin. Let's make a conscious effort to reach out to those who have been led astray and bring them to the joy of our Father's house.

Today's Prayer

Gracious and loving Father, please give me a heart like yours for lost people. Especially make me aware of those who have drifted away or who have been led astray. In Jesus' name. Amen.
