S. O. A. P.
Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds.
As the writer of Hebrews addressed the Jewish Christians living in Jerusalem at that time, he also addresses us in our time. He said we should always be considering new ways and strategies to encourage each other in how to love others better and do even more than we’re already doing for the work of the Lord.
The GRACE we have received through faith, in order to be saved, demands a loving response from all true Believers. The day in which we live requires every “Jesus Follower” to GIVE more, DO more, and LOVE more than we ever have before. The reason is because so many still have never heard or seen the gospel of Jesus delivered to them. When I think of the word “SPUR,” I think of a cowboy with spurs on his boots used to kick a horse to run faster. In my opinion this is a unique word the writer used to emphasize the urgency we “Followers of Jesus” are called to live by. Nothing should be done haphazardly, or with an “it can wait until another time” type approach. When it comes to helping people and doing all we can for Jesus, it must be done wholeheartedly. Upon awakening each morning, every radical “Jesus Follower” should feel the spur in his or her backside that says, “lets go all out for our King again today.” Nothing can be held in reserve, nothing can hinder us, and nothing can separate us from our “Driven Need” to look our fellow man in the face and always say … “How Can I SERVE You?”
This AM as I read the scripture I really only have one response … “How Can I SERVE You Today My Lord?” Amen
