You are Invited

Jesus was teaching in a synagogue when He saw a crippled woman. He called her forward and healed her, breaking all sorts of traditions. He said to her:

Woman, you are set free from your infirmity. Luke 13:12

Today you are invited to consider two things: Firstly, how ready are you to take any opportunity to serve Jesus in whatever way He calls you? Secondly, how does the opinion of others affect what you do for Jesus? How willing are you to break with the accepted traditions of your society, your church, your family, your social circle, etc? What holds you back from stepping out in faith? How do you feel about the times you did – and the times you didn’t? What is God saying to you today in regard to this verse?

May God bless you with the courage and love to take advantage of every opportunity He gives you, no matter what the people around you may say.

About Mandy Hackland

My love in life is to encourage others to deepen their relationship with God. I write devotional material, stories and small group studies with that in mind. I live in South Africa and also love spending time in the bush, bird watching and walking. I have moved to the coast and am enjoying the green spaces and beautiful vistas that surround me, reminding me of God's grace every day.
