#faithbites #faithjourney #redletterchallenge Puppy
Tomorrow starts the official #RedLetterChallenge for our church. 40 Days of reading Jesus’s words and seeking a deeper understanding of him.
Tonight, my eldest lost her favorite stuffed animal, Crazy Puppy. We have torn up the house looking for him. I spent close to 30 minutes looking. I finally calmed her down, told her we would find him, and she has her stuffed Porg to keep her company. I hope he’s at school, but who knows.
We are often like my eldest. Trying to find what we love. Looking everywhere for it and most times coming up empty. The reason is, we are looking in the wrong places.
His love is in His words. We just need to look in the right place.
These – John 15:9-17Greater
This is Jesus’s love in a nutshell. He chose us. We didn’t have to do anything to deserve this love. If we abide in his commandments, we will abide in his love.
That’s it. Love him, love people. Then we have his love. The greatest of all loves.
When we feel alone, we are usually straying from Him. We are putting our faith in other things. We are searching in all the wrong places.
My eldest loves her crazy puppy. She will find him as she won’t give up until she looks in the right place. We need to follow her example and look for Jesus in the right place. His Words.
Start a habit today. Schedule time for Him. Don’t look elsewhere. Turn to His Red Words
Lord Jesus, thank you for all the wonders you give us. Be with us as we search for love. Direct us to the right place to find it and how to share it with all of your people. Guide us on this next 40 day challenge as we get deeper into your word, Amen.
