Jesus came and told his disciples, “I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
Good Morning My Precious Jesus,
You have come to wake me this morning with Your gentle words of encouragement. You strengthen me to get out of bed so I can sit and be with You. You are all I need in this life and I love You so very much!
I don’t always think of myself as a disciple, Jesus. I’m just one of Your kids. Yet, Your Word this morning reminds me that I am a disciple and You have called me into service. My service is wherever You place me at this time of my life.
I need to take this discipleship thing seriously. You are asking me to share You with someone else, to nourish and guide them closer to You. You don’t always ask me to do the big Billy Graham things, You ask me to share in my community of life, with those I love and come in contact with every day.
Please give me the words and courage I will need to do Your bidding. Help me to realize that I have just as much impact on the world as the apostles who were with You. Remind me often that You are always with me and will never leave me.
