Living Words - Monday, January 20th 2014
Simon Peter replied, "Lord, to whom would we go? You alone have the words that give eternal life.
Words are interesting things. Some are long and complicated and some are short and sweet. Some encourage and some discourage. Sometimes you can receive the most encouraging words from some of the least likely sources. The Lord seems to be able to use anyone at anytime to speak to us wherever we are.
It is amazing. There is only one place to receive the words, or the Word, that gives eternal life and that is from Jesus. There have been many clever men over the years who have said many astute things, but no one has ever uttered words with such power and wisdom as Jesus. No one has ever given us the words to know how to receive eternal life other than Jesus. That is why we are here, listening to Jesus, learning about His Words. Lord, we agree with Peter, you alone have the Words that give eternal life.
Life Lesson: We should be reading and listening to the words of Jesus.
Thank You for Words of eternal life. They are just that... the only Words that offer true life. Open my ears to Your instruction and give me feet that move swiftly to Your path. Search me and know my heart. Lead me in Your way everlasting. I pray this in Jesus' name, Amen.
Living to tell what He died to say,
