Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
(Leviticus 19, 20)
“A New Heart for a New Life”
Text: Leviticus 19:2
“Speak to all the congregation of the children of Israel, and say to them: You shall be holy, for I the LORD your God am holy.”
“A New Heart for a New Life,” is on our menu for Breakfast this morning.
God is telling you and I to do something that is impossible to do, without God! When we come to Jesus and surrender our heart and life to Him - He gives you and I a new heart for our new life. His Love connects with our new heart and we want to be like Him! He becomes our First and Only True Love. In other words we WANT to be holy like Him because we Love Him!
As we pursue Him He changes us. Our attitudes, desires, behavior, all become like His attitudes, desires, and behavior. We become holy like He is Holy because We Love, Trust, and Obey Him. (2Corin.3:18; Phil.2:12-13).
Day 3 of Passion Week
Jesus returns again from Bethany to Jerusalem this morning and on the way He teaches the disciples a lesson on Faith with the withered fig tree.
The angry religious leaders are waiting to trap Him and arrest Him for telling the Truth of His Spiritual Authority. Jesus rebukes them for their hardened heart. They may look holy on the outside but they’re wicked on the inside (Matt.23:24-33)
Later that afternoon Jesus left the city and went to the Mount of Olives and gave the “Olivet Prophecy” on the destruction of Jerusalem, the end times, His second coming, and the final judgement of mankind.
At the end of the day He and His disciples return to Bethany for the night. (Matt.21:23 - 24:51)
THEME FOR THIS DAY:
“Guarding Our New Heart”
We guard the integrity of our heart by meeting with God every day for Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner and filling our Heart with God’s Word. This will show you and I what to allow into our heart; things that are godly, things that will help us grow in the Grace and knowledge of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. (2Pet.3:18).
“Lord, thank You for working Your Love in me and providing Holy Spirit as a Guard over my heart. Help me to always have an ear sensitive to hear His Voice of Truth, a passion to be more like You, and a hatred of sin and coveteousness. In Jesus name I pray, Amen!”
Warrior at your side,
Jesus and Billy
