March 28, 2021 – Scripture/Meditation
Joshua 1:1-9 (Emphasis on verses 8 &9), Philippians 4:8-9, Psalm 1, 1 Timothy 13-15
The cost of following Jesus can be as high as our very lives. This is a complete giving of ourselves for the sake of Jesus, just has he fully gave himself for us. This is a task too tall for us as humans alone. Thankfully, God gave us the scriptures. In them are contained stories and teachings and one central message about the sacrificial love of Jesus. These words have built up God’s people for thousands of years. God invites us to meditate on them. We are called to speak them to ourselves and one another. As we hear and speak the scriptures, the teachings, stories and message of them start to shape how we see our world and enable us to follow Jesus at whatever cost.
