Justify

Day 38

Read

“The reason my Father loves me is that I lay down my life—only to take it up again. No one takes it from me, but I lay it down of my own accord. I have authority to lay it down and authority to take it up again. This command I received from my Father.” (John 10:17-18)

Think 

In failing to justify Himself before men, Jesus justified us before God.

Pray

Lord Jesus, your great love for me puts my love for You to shame. Please give me a renewed sense of purpose as I seek You more consistently, receive your fresh word, and really take it to heart. Lord, don’t let me just go through the motions.
