Daily Devotional from Pastor Mary 9-6-19

Psalms 1:1-3 Contemporary English Version (CEV)

When we invite Christ into our lives, we are asking for him to teach us his ways; the godly ways that please the Father. It is the work of the Spirit of the Law to draw us into the Hand of God; the Spirit beckons us to come and receive divine love, healing, and relational connection. Scripture teaches, the Law leads to divine blessing. Think about that for a minute. Blessings are connected to obedience to Christ; we flourish when we connect. The Lord calls us to his love commands, so we will use the extravagant and life-changing love he gives in a righteous way. Jesus is the fulfillment of the Law and the Spirit has written its Truth on human hearts. We must follow…the Way.

Psalm 1:1-3 The Way to Blessings
God blesses those people
who refuse evil advice
and won’t follow sinners
or join in sneering at God.
Instead, the Law of the Lord
makes them happy,
and they think about it
day and night.
They are like trees
growing beside a stream,
trees that produce
fruit in season
and always have leaves.
Those people succeed
in everything they do.

Prayer: Lord, thank you for the joy I feel when I think about your Laws of love. You fill me with joy because I gain a truer picture of you. I want to love like you, so I will meditate on your Word and invite you into the center of everything that touches my life. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
