“If you love me, keep my commands.

My Daily Prayers and Readings for 11/02/2012

“If you love me, keep my commands.

< >< My Prayer >< >

Abba Father I know ‘never insists on obedience. Through Jesus and Your Word You stresses very definitely what we ought to do, but You never force us to do it. We have to obey You out of a oneness of spirit with You. That is why whenever our Lord Jesus talked about discipleship, He prefaced it with an “If,” meaning, “You do not need to do this unless you desire to do so.” “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself”. In other words, “To be My disciple, let him give up his right to himself to Me.”’1 So I come to You in His name, the name of Jesus Christ who lives within me through the Holy Spirit so that You would create in me a pure heart where my desire to be obedient is at its highest, and renew a steadfast spirit within me for my one walk in and with You. I stand having girded my waist with truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod my feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith with which I will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. I seek to be a channel of Your peace and love in all situations will all people. I pray that You continue to bless me and mine in fulfillment of Your will, and keep us from evil and pain; reminding us that if we get nothing else done this day, let us spend it loving You and others first, as You love us. In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, Amen.
