Daily in Your Presence - May 18

Day 139


"By this all men will know that you are my disciples,
if you love one another."
John 13:35


My child, do you really desire to be My disciple? Are you willing to pay the price? Are you afraid of where I might lead you? Of what might be taken away? No one who has followed Me has ever left behind more than I will give him in exchange. Spend time with Me daily. Listen well. I will make you My disciple. In the past you have lived for yourself. But when you let My love flow through you, others will know you are truly My disciple.

From an unlikely band of misfits, Lord, You chose Your disciples. You poured Your life into theirs, teaching them, guiding them, and walking with them daily. As a disciple maker, You taught them how to love. Because of Your eternal investment, I, too, can become Your disciple.


God doesn't expect your best. He wants your all.
