Mondays with Marty 10/21/18




Good morning!  It's all about Jesus, everywhere, always.  Everything in the Bible, from Genesis to Revelation.  Everything in life -- work, marriage, school, hobbies, friendships...everything!  All our hopes, all our dreams and plans and goals -- if they aren't centered on Jesus, they're the wrong hopes, wrong dreams and plans and goals.  For the believer, it's all about Jesus, everywhere, always:


Something to Ponder: Did anything inside you begin to squirm when you read "It's all about Jesus, everywhere, always"?  Was there a voice in your head that said "yeah, but..."?  Congratulations!  Now you know the part (or parts!) of your life you haven't given to Jesus.


Something to Pray About: Thank Jesus for showing you the parts of yourself you haven't given to him, and ask him to take control and make every part of you his.  Ask him to teach you how to live now that all of you is all about him, everywhere, always.


Something to Put Into Action: The problem with writing these devotions is that I have to read them and take my own advice.  And I don't want to.  I don't want to let go of the parts of my life I haven't given to Jesus.  Do you?  But we have to.  Here's what we need to do: read this devotion everyday for a week, pray as I've asked us to pray every day for a week, and let Jesus have his way.  I's hard to believe, but we won't regret it.  Life is best when it's all about Jesus, everywhere, always.


In Christ,

Pastor Marty
