Good Words for Today: October 19
“I will raise up for them a prophet like you from among their brothers” (Deuteronomy 18:18). When a prophet speaks, you have only two choices: Listen to what he says. Disregard his words. There are no other options. If you say, “I’m going to think about it,” that’s really the same as disregarding him. If Jesus is the True Prophet of God, then you must either receive or reject his words. You have to make a choice. There can be no neutrality about Jesus. You are either with him or against him. You either follow him or you ignore him. What is your verdict about Jesus? Is he really the Son of God? If he is, then crown him King of your life and join the millions who worship him as Savior and Lord. Lord Jesus, may we not waver in our devotion to you, the Son of God sent from heaven. Grant us believing hearts that we might follow you gladly. Amen.
