Sparrows by Jason Gray
Here is Jesus' promise in today's Gospel of Matthew 10:32-33, "Everyone who acknowledges Me before others I will acknowledge before My heavenly Father. But whoever denies Me before others, I will deny before My heavenly Father."
How do I acknowledge Jesus before others?
Matthew 10:27-28, "
* What I (Jesus) say to you (Salina) in the darkness, SPEAK in the light;
* what you hear whispered, PROCLAIM on the housetops.
* And do NOT BE AFRAID of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul;
* rather, BE AFRAID of the One Who can destroy both soul and body in Gehenna."
Lord Jesus, let me SPEAK and PROCLAIM You are LOVE! If necessary, let me use words! Lord, in Your great love, You answer me :-) How much more did the grace of God and the gracious gift of the one man Jesus Christ overflow for the many........I testify in all that I think, say and do as the Spirit of Truth testify to You, Lord Jesus! Amen!
Thank you, Amy, for this reflection. Especially the part where you said "this child's sence of herself would not be determined by the standards of others....but by the gifts God has given her who knows her heart." Each of us needs to know we're loved by God unconditionally.
...."Even all the hairs of your head are counted.
So do not be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.
Everyone who acknowledges me before others
I will acknowledge before my heavenly Father.
But whoever denies me before others,
I will deny before my heavenly Father."
To GOD be the Glory .... AMEN!
