“But you know of his proven worth, that he served with me in the furtherance of the gospel like a child serving his father” (Philippians 2:22)
Will you receive those whom the Lord sends? In our day we want credentials, but if one is sent of the Lord, will you receive him as the world teaches you, or as one sent by the Lord? Many an angel has been passed by unaware because they will not be received. The Gospel will be furthered. The question is whether you will be a part of what the Lord is doing around and through you.
Lord, grant that I would have discernment such that I would be aware when You are present. Help me hear when You are speaking through another. Guide me in the way of life which You have created. If I am sent, help me to bear all things for Your sake. If another is sent, open my ears to hear Your message through them. In all things, lead me to see, hear, and do what You know I need to receive and do.
Lord Jesus, You have empowered us through the gift of grace to be on the path of becoming children of the Heavenly Father. You have given us the example of what that looks like. Lead me, Lord, so that I would be guided by You to give and receive according to Your purpose. Help me this day in all of my struggles so that I would learn and grow in the way of the Gospel. Amen.
