“But you, beloved, ought to remember the words that were spoken beforehand by the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ” (Jude 1:17)
There is nothing new under the sun and nothing new that is going to be revealed until the day of Jesus. Especially in our age when people think we’re after something new, listen to the old, old story of Jesus and His love. Do not be carried away with the enticements of empty words but listen to the goodness of the Gospel and follow Jesus. Listen to those who have given You the witness.
Lord, there are those who tell me something supposedly new, or a certain twist that makes me think I have received a special revelation. Help me see through every such attempt to lead me astray. Guide me according to Your goodness to know that in You alone is all hope. You have already accomplished salvation for those who believe. Help me to live as one who believes.
Lord Jesus, what can I add that has not already been thought of? There is nothing I can do but respond to the offer You have already given. Lead me in the continuity of the witness of all the saints who have gone before me so that I may learn the simple task of humbly following You. Lead me, Lord Jesus, for You alone know the way I need to go. You have already provided all that is needed. Amen.
