Welcome to 21 Days of Prayer. The theme for this week has been “God Will Be Glorified.” This is our last week together for this special series and today’s devotional was written by Lloyd Shadrach of Fellowship Bible Church. To read along while you listen, text “21 Days” to 94090.
We’re on Day 19 which is entitled “The Chief End of Man” and you need to hear this! Only 2 more days left of this devotional! I’m going to be sad when it’s over! If you’re new here, welcome to the Listening Well.
Isn’t it so convicting to hear what Lloyd said? That the 2 created beings that were made to most clearly declare God’s glory, chose NOT TO do it! UGH! We missed it! Somehow we missed that reflecting His Glory is our MAIN thing! It’s the main goal in life. As it says in the Westminster Confession of Faith, The chief end of man is to know Him and enjoy Him forever. And somehow we missed it.
But the beauty of the Gospel is this- while we were yet “stinkers” (my paraphrase of Romans 5:8 ;-0) God made a way for us through the sacrifice of His Son. He KNEW we’d miss it, so He set His plan in motion before laying the foundations of the eart. Our part is only to believe. To say Yes to His provision- Jesus.
So if you feel a stirring in your heart, that’s the Spirit leading you. Repeat this prayer with me. All it takes is a mustard seed of faith. :-0)
“Lord Jesus, I want to know you. Teach me how. Amen.”
