WEDNESDAY: DECEMBER 5
READ: Matthew 1:19,24; John 14:23-24
1. What connection does Jesus make in John 14 between loving him and obeying him?
2. Joseph was “righteous,” or a man who tried to be faithful to God’s law. It doesn’t mean he was perfect; rather, it meant obeying God was his priority. How would you grade obedience to God as a priority in your life? If 5 is “totally committed” and 1 is “not at all committed,” how would you rank yourself?
PRAY: Jesus, I want to be righteous like you and like Joseph. Make loving obedience to your word my highest priority. Amen.
