PRAYER: Please pray tonight for a family that lost their 24 yr old son to a heroin overdose last night. They’ve been in our community for years. So sad to hear this.
DEVOTION: “Teach these things and insist that everyone learn them. Don’t let anyone think less of you because you are young. Be an example to all believers in what you say, in the way you live, in your love, your faith, and your purity.” – 1 Timothy 4:11-12
Be an example. Be a light that shines in the darkness, a city on a hill. Let your speech, your lives, your faith and purity be an amazing sample. Truer words have not been spoken.
Thank you Paul for calling this out. We are weak and fall fast, reminders like this keep us in constant check.
Let’s continue to lean into all of this. Our faith is made stronger when our actions are pure, faithful, reflections of Jesus.
Let this verse inspire you and encourage you. Even in the dark, light can shine. Even if you’ve made mistakes, change can take place. Let it be so and let our hearts be made pure and clean in the eyes of Jesus because of the sacrifice of Jesus.
