Scripture: Luke (NIV) 19:47 Every day he was teaching at the temple. But the chief priests, the teachers of the law and the leaders among the people were trying to kill him.
48 Yet they could not find any way to do it, because all the people hung on his words.
Observation: It was just a few days before Jesus was to be crucified. But Jesus was not out taking it easy and preparing himself for the days ahead. “Every day he was teaching…” If it was important for Jesus to do this “every day” then it is important for His followers to be listening to Him “every day.”
Application: This Christian life is an “every day” life. If I am not faithful “every day” in reading God’s Word and talking with my Lord, I can easily become entangled in the traps the devil has laid for me.
Prayer: Lord, some days may not seem as troublesome, but in reality I should treat every day as important. Remind me to spend time listening to you “every day.” Amen
Making friends for time and eternity!
