Illustration of Mark 14:19 NLT — The followers were very sad to hear this. Each follower said to Jesus, "Surely I will not be against you!"

Key Thought

This is exactly the question we need to ask ourselves. "I'm not the one, am I?" Pride should never be a part of our spiritual character, because we will fail and fall. Instead, we need to examine ourselves and put ourselves to the test, but then take those results back to the Lord and pray for his power and grace.

Today's Prayer

O Father, I know that I cannot be the person I want to be without your help, power, and presence. Fill me and empower me with your Holy Spirit. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
