Strengthened through Grace!
Scripture reading for October 30th: Jeremiah 23-26, Hebrews 13
Key Scriptures: Hebrews 13:7-9 “Remember your leaders, those who spoke to you the Word of God. Consider the outcome of their way of life, and imitate their faith. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. Do not be led away by diverse and strange teachings, for it is good for the heart to be strengthened by grace, not by foods, which have not benefited those devoted to them.”
The writer of Hebrews concludes his letter with an encouragement to the believers to remember and obey and imitate their leaders. Their main Leader, Jesus Christ, was unchangeable! Godly living was through the grace found in Jesus Christ, not in what a person ate or in strange teachings.
Jeremiah 23:18 “For who among them has stood in the council of the Lord to see and to hear His Word, or who has paid attention to His Word and listened?”
Prayer: Lord, thank You for godly leaders who stand in the council of the Lord and teach His Word. May I pay attention and listen. Amen.
