Isaiah 56:1 NKJV
Clearly, God’s Word speaks volumes and we can see our hearts truly need Jesus Christ.
It is the treasure of truth to submit unto God and to unlock the innermost parts of ourselves to Jesus, to find the greatest treasure of life eternal in His sacrifice as well as the gifts of walking in righteousness for His namesake.
What earthly treasure compares?
What achievement can rival thus?
Where would the flavor and joy of life be if not in the promise of heaven hereafter?
How great and blessed we are to be called by the name of Christ Jesus and to be able to surrender ourselves before Him daily.
Dear Lord Jesus,
Thank You so much for Your Word. How incredible it is! I love truth is so clear and yet so profound. Lord, You amaze me in so many ways and Your wisdom is such a treasure. Thank You for giving me Your Word. Thank You for salvation. Lord Jesus, thank You for continuing to show me daily how to walk in Your paths. Lord, I want to follow You with every part of me. I want my whole life to bring glory to Your name. For there is no one who deserves glory, honor, and praise like You. Thank You Jesus! Amen.
