S. O. A. P.
Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
1 John 5:21
Dear children, keep yourselves from idols.
This word by John concludes the book of First John. There had been phony prophets and teachers in that day who were pulling the people away from the truth. John fought these falsities and concludes by saying, you must “RESIST” anything that pulls you away from worshipping Jesus.
In this short sentence we see the challenge that lies before every “Follower Of Jesus.” There is always the call from the Lord to move forward in love and purpose and passion to do the will of God. On the other hand, there is always the pull from the other side to check out what allurements entice one’s soul from hell itself. John the Evangelist writes, “Dear Children, keep yourselves from idols.” He was saying “RESIST” the enemy’s pull on your soul, because it only leads to death. So today, while you move forward joyfully in Jesus, keep “Resisting” the pull from the other side. It is in this battle that true Christian strength is developed.
Today I look forward to serving You with my whole heart AGAIN. Amen
