Daily Devotional

Matthew 5:23-24 (MSG) "This is how I want you to conduct yourself in these matters. If you enter your place of worship and, about to make an offering, you suddenly remember a grudge a friend has against you, abandon your offering, leave immediately, go to this friend and make things right. Then and only then, come back and work things out with God."

Jesus was emphatic that the condition of a person's heart and relationship with others was reflected in their relationship with God. He told them, and us, to do the hard work of making amends, fixing what we have damaged, so that our hearts will be able to be in healthy relationship with God. Jesus teaches that the best time to work on a relationship is in the moment it comes to mind!

What relationships do you need to work on today? Will you choose to live today into Jesus' way of love by making changes in your heart to make things right with others and God?

May we take Jesus' teaching to heart and transform our relationships today!

{Following worship today I will be taking a week of vacation with my children and will resume on the 24th.}

[The focus of Jesus being the confluence of all cultures and nations in his love. This church of all nations is built over the rock where Jesus prayed in the Garden of Gethsemane before his arrest and cruxifixction.]
