Hiding Behind Jesus

July 7

Daily Bible Reading: Acts 14

Verse of the Day: Acts 14:15 – “and saying, Sirs, why do ye these things? We also are men of like passions with you, and bring you good tidings, that ye should turn from these vain things unto a living God, who made the heaven and the earth and the sea, and all that in them is:”

In Lystra and Derbe, Paul and Barnabus came into a new circumstance. Having faced opposition in so many places that they had travelled, here they are being exalted as gods. They went from being cursed to being worshipped. They handled it correctly. They realized who they were, and that only God was to be worshipped.

As human beings we must be careful to not take for ourselves any of the honor and glory that belongs to God. Worship Jesus and hide behind Him in all that we do.

Prayer: Jesus, help me to maintain my proper place in this life. I am a sinner saved by grace, and You only are to be glorified and praised. May all the words and works I do simply reflect You to this world. Amen.
