Open my heart, Lord, to be receptive of your voice. Keep me from turning away in ignorance and rebellion from the hard things I must do…the things that I must change…the things I must accept. Please show me today, again, how to follow the example of Christ and yield to his power within me. While I am waiting on you, please center my thoughts and keep me from worthless distractions. In the name of Jesus, AMEN!
1 John 2:5-6
We truly love God only when we obey him as we should, and then we know that we belong to him. If we say we are his, we must follow the example of Christ.
