God’s Love LEtter
The Truth will set you free –WEEK 35:
This week we are remembering the Reformation and how the truth will set you free from sin, death, and the devil. Jesus said, “If you abide in My Word, you are truly My disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” (John 8:31-32).
Many are still in bondage due to sin, their own sin, and sinful understandings of mankind’s purpose on this side of eternity. We are to live for Christ and to proclaim His truth that He sets us free. This week, we will be looking for truths that we can share with others in our daily witness. Don’t worry, Jesus will be helping us to find them. Let’s keep pointing others back to Jesus.
Our pattern is to read 3 chapters of God’s Word each day and watch as our love and care for God and others grows. You can read them all at once or spread them out throughout the day. When we read God’s Word, application of that Word is an important aspect of what we’ve read. After reading each chapter, be sure to pick 1 verse (you may have more than 1 and that is great) in that chapter that was especially meaningful for you. Take a moment to savor that verse (those verses) and ponder upon them. Then say a short prayer about making that verse’s teaching(s) a part of this day’s journey of following Jesus as one of His modern-day followers.
Look how far that we’ve already come in 2021. We’ve read the Old Testament Books of Genesis, Exodus, Ruth, Esther, Job, Psalms, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, and Isaiah, the New Testament Books of Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, Acts, Romans, 1&2 Corinthians, Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians, 1&2 Thessalonians, 1&2 Timothy, Titus, Philemon, Hebrews, James, 1&2 Peter, 1&2&3 John, Jude and Revelation. This week we will finish the Books of Hosea and Joel.
