It’s A War Of Wills

JANUARY 15 & 16, 2022
Daily Reading – Genesis 29-30 / Matthew 10
Daily Reading – No Reading on Sunday

WHAT GOD HAS SAID:

Matthew 10:39 He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it.

WHAT I HAVE SEEN:

    Over the years as I have read today’s verse, I saw a positive and negative. If you try to hold on to life, you lose all the benefits of following Christ. If you give up your hold on life, you find joy in this life and the life to come. I still believe this to be true. However, today as I read this verse, I saw another way of reading it.

    As I read, “He that findeth his life shall lose it:” I thought of a man who had found in his life that earthly holdings are futile. Fame, riches, pleasures all pass away. Therefore, he decides to give his life to God. So then when it says, “he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it.” could be talking about the same guy. Either way you read this it still says, to enjoy this life and eternity we must surrender our life to God’s will.

WHAT DO YOU SAY:

What hold on life might you surrender today?

WHAT TO DO ON SUNDAY:

On Sundays, we encourage you to attend your local church and listen intently to what God has prepared in the heart of your Pastor. Write down all the scriptures he uses in that message, then, when you get home re-read those passages for today’s reading. God has given to your Pastor exactly what He desires for you on that day.
