Matthew 11:19 (NIV)
The Son of Man came eating and drinking, and they say, ‘Here is a glutton and a drunkard, a friend of tax collectors and sinners.’ But wisdom is proved right by her deeds.”
My name is Ron Yahr Jr and I’m a sinner. I also have a wonderful friend called Jesus who wants to change my life and help me follow a path that will lead me to God’s Eternal Kingdom.
I struggle with sin, but Jesus remains my friend.
I get lost in life sometimes, but Jesus is still my Guide.
I worry about the future, but Jesus knows the way ahead.
I regret my past mistakes, but Jesus has forgiven me.
I feel helpless at times, but Jesus is my strength.
I guess that you’re a sinner too; why else would you need to read a devotional? Guess what? Jesus is also Your Friend, Guide, Comforter, Savior, and Strength.
Being a Christian is the best gift in life that God has to offer. Bringing someone else to Christ is the best way that we can thank Him. As we head into the New Year, let’s invite someone to church to meet Jesus.
Dear Lord, thank You for being our Friend. Even though we have many sins and don’t deserve such a blessing You have given us the greatest gift. Thank You for being here in our lives. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
