The scripture for today, October 14 (10/14), is John 10:14 as found in the New Testament of the Bible:
How amazing that Jesus is willing to follow you when you do not follow him, and bring you back to his protective fold. He died while doing just that.
Yet we continue to leave him and his instructions that would keep us safe, and we wander into thistles, near cliffs, down into pits. This requires more work for Jesus. Yet we do it anyway. Catch me if you can! We may laugh, but he weeps because he knows the danger we are headed for.
How much grief do we give our spiritual Father, our spiritual Big Brother, our spiritual family? If they are not laughing over what we’re doing, perhaps we should not be either.
God, forgive me when I wander from You.
Revelation is not a book of horrors. It is a reminder that God protected his people and punished their enemies in the past and will do so again. It is a love letter. This is a very logical and simplified explanation of a comforting book full of beautiful symbolism. TO BUY NOW, click a picture or PASTE THIS: https://amzn.to/2Chl14c
