Our Daily Elder Devotional
We claim no originality for these devotions. One of our elders searches various sources and finds a daily devotion. Consider this a gift from Clinton Avenue Reformed Church: www.clintonave.org.
Today’s devotional is from my heart to you.
Today is Sunday
Matthew 11:25-30 New International Version (NIV)
The Father Revealed in the Son / Jesus Gives Rest
25 At that time Jesus said, “I praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and learned, and revealed them to little children.26 Yes, Father, for this is what you were pleased to do.
27 “All things have been committed to me by my Father. No one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.
28 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
Jesus Gives True Peace
John 14:26-28 New International Version (NIV)
26 But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you. 27 Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.
28 “You heard me say, ‘I am going away and I am coming back to you.’ If you loved me, you would be glad that I am going to the Father, for the Father is greater than I.
Today is Sunday and most of us do not work on Sunday. It offers an opportunity for us to recharge and rest our minds and our bodies. We need to take this opportunity to interact with our loved ones. A text, an email or even a phone call is in order. It is also a time to interact with our God. Going to church is important so that you can commune with the Body of Christ and sing praise to God and worship our Creator and our Refuge. Take some time to read God’s Word and find rest and peace.
And as the wonderful Dr. Robert A. Cook used to say: “Walk with the King today, and be a blessing.”
