December 26 – Don’t Follow Religion, Follow Jesus!

Daily Bible Life

Jesus Christ admonished the Pharisees to shun their religion dogma and become God’s true children. The Pharisees criticized Jesus for preaching gospel to the sinners, but he corrected them with an illustration. Jesus said, “What man of you, having a hundred sheep, if he loses one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the wilderness, and go after the one which is lost until he finds it? And when he has found it, he lays it on his shoulders, rejoicing. And when he comes home, he calls together his friends and neighbors, saying to them, ‘Rejoice with me, for I have found my sheep which was lost!’ I say to you that likewise there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine just persons who need no repentance” (Luke 15:4-7).

 

Lesson:

Man may segregate but God does not segregate anyone. The Creator loves everyone equally; he opens his hands widely to receive any converted sinner so that he (or she) can gain an access to his kingdom.

God-The heavenly Father is always happy to see a sinner who repents of his sins. In fact, the scripture stated the angels in heaven rejoice over any single sinner who repents of his sin and turns to Jesus Christ (Luke 15:7,10).

 

Prayer:

Dear Lord Jesus Christ, please save the unbelievers. Help them to realize who you are as the Son of God. Energize them to confess their sins and accept you as their personal Savior. I also pray that you destroy all works of Satan in the lives of your children throughout the world so that they can keep focus and be committed into serving you! Please, keep the saints steadfast in your love in order to make it to your kingdom and enjoy your everlasting benefits. For in the name of Jesus Christ I pray. Amen.
