A Daily Devotion for Monday, August 8
To the Jews who had believed him, Jesus said, “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
Jesus makes it simple for me; Hold to His teaching. That is all I need to do to be a disciple. But holding to God’s word is not always that easy, and not always simple. Life has gotten so complicated and so full of details. Do I let myself get caught up in details and forget what is most crucial? Do I put too much importance on unimportant things? When I let this happen, I am not being a disciple.
Holy Lord, keep my path straight and help me to stay focused on what you would have me see and do. I am yours. Amen
