The Forward Day by Day Meditation

Today's Meditation

TUESDAY, October 19                  Henry Martyn

Matthew 11:25 At that time Jesus said, “I thank you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and the intelligent and have revealed them to infants.”

How often do we think that we possess the absolute truth? I am not wise and do not pretend to be wise, but I have completely and absolutely surrendered my life to the will of God. What Jesus asked of the Twelve was to proclaim the Good News of his kingdom. Part of Jesus’ mission consisted of bringing light and understanding to the common people of his time, particularly to the men and women who traveled with him and to everyone who, in one form or another, followed him or sought him out.

When you follow the teachings of Jesus with the conviction that it’s the best decision of your life, you can never be the same again. Today, I am sure that Christ dwells in me, and that is what motivates me to serve.
