SUMC Daily Devotion (6-19-2020) by Pastor Jerry
"If you abide in My word, then you are truly disciples of Mine." – John 8:31
Words have power. If I ask Cindy, “Can I have a bowl of ice cream?”, she brings me the ice cream. If Jesus commands us, “Help the poor, work for justice, treat others nicely, welcome strangers, be peace-makers,” then we need to listen to him and obey him. His words will make a difference in our lives and in the lives of people we touch. Let us be transformed by the words of Jesus so that we may transform the world.
Today’s prayer: Dear Lord, we pray that the words of Jesus may transform our lives.
Help us to live our lives by the wise teachings of Jesus. Amen.
1. Religion is the substance of culture and culture is the expression of religion.
2. The way to show that your religion is true is not to yell and scream about it.
The way to show that your religion is true is to live it.
3. Christ is Lord, not because of what he teaches but because of what he does.
