Editor's Note: We are sorry for not posting yesterday's "Daily B.R.E.A.D." article. The website was under attack by hackers.

 

The Lord Jesus gives us the fire of his Holy Spirit, not only to purify our hearts and minds, but to transform our lives into living torches of his saving love and mercy.

Do you allow the light of God's truth and love to shine in your heart and mind?

John 5:33-36  You sent to John, and he has borne witness to the truth. (34) Not that the testimony which I receive is from man; but I say this that you may be saved. (35) He was a burning and shining lamp, and you were willing to rejoice for a while in his light. (36) But the testimony which I have is greater than that of John; for the works which the Father has granted me to accomplish, these very works  which I am doing, bear me witness that the Father has sent me. 

 

Meditation by Don Schwager

 

Do you know what it's like to be on fire with God's love? Jesus describes John the Baptist as a "burning and shining lamp" who gave light to those around him. A lamp does not give light by itself. It must first be lit.

 

John's message gave warmth because his heart was lit by the fire of God's love and truth. Just as natural light dispels the darkness and makes the way clear, so God's word brings light to dispel the spiritual darkness in our lives and to open the way to freedom and joy in God's kingdom.

 

John's light pointed his hearers to the way of repentance and God.  His message echoes the words of the prophet Isaiah: "salvation and deliverance will come to those who keep justice and do righteousness" (Isaiah 65:1). The prophets saw from afar how God would send his "anointed one", the Messiah, to bring deliverance and freedom to those crushed by sin and oppression.  Jesus bears witness in his own person and in the mighty works which he performed that God's deliverance has truly come to those who accept him as Savior of Israel and Redeemer of humankind.

 

The Lord Jesus gives us the fire of his Holy Spirit, not only to purify our hearts and minds, but to transform our lives into living torches of his saving love and mercy. Do you allow the light of God's truth and love to shine in your heart and mind? 

 

"Lord Jesus, let the fire of your love and truth burn in my heart that I may radiate the joy of the gospel to those around me." # # #

 

GOD BLESS US ALL!
