Wherever

Read: Matthew 28:19.    So wherever you go, make disciples of all nations: Baptize them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.

Think:  Does this sound like a suggestion to you? It is not! It is a command. The command was issued by Jesus to his disciples and, by extention, to all Christians. “Wherever you go” does not mean that you need to go to a foreign country (unless God so calls you). It means everywhere you are, home, work, school, shopping, clubs, restaurants – wherever you find yourself is your mission field. 

Pray:  Lord Jesus, give me opportunity to make disciples in every situation. Give me strength, courage, love, and words to further your kingdom wherever I am. Amen.

Make a Joyful Noise Unto the Lord

Read:  1st Chronicles 16:8-12.     O give thanks to the Lord, call on his name, make known his deeds among the peoples. Sing to him, sing praises to him, tell of all his wonderful works.  Glory in his holy name;  let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice.  Seek the Lord and his strength,  seek his presence continually. Remember the wonderful works he has done,  his miracles, and the judgments he uttered,

Think: David wrote psalms and sang songs to the Lord. I’m not a great singer but I carry music within me. Throughout the day people will comment on my whistling. Most of the time I’m unaware that I’m whistling. When pointed out, I will realize that I’m most likely to be whistling a hyme or praise tune. My inner spirit becomes so filled with God’s goodness that it has to burst forth with praise.

Pray:  Lord, thank you for the wonderful things you have done. I give you all glory and will praise you while I have breath in my body. Amen.
