THIS WEEK'S DEVOTIONAL

Turn! Turn! Turn!
Matthew 13:12, New Living Translation:
“To those who listen to my teaching, more understanding will be given, and they will have an abundance of knowledge. But for those who are not listening, even what little understanding they have will be taken away from them.”
In the Gospel of Luke, ch. 15, The Prodigal Son met with his dad’s grace – when he turned.
In the book of Acts (20-21) when the people heard the good news about the Lord Jesus, the Lord’s hand was with them, and a great number of people believed and turned to the Lord.
Turning toward the Lord – or not – is THE indicator of what we have, regarding understanding and knowledge of truth. So what we already have indicates the direction we are facing, and what we already have is increased – in either direction – simply because that’s the direction in which we’re headed. The bible is clear that we should, each of us, turn from our evil ways, the ways that are destructive to us, to the rest of the world, and I believe, are holding back the coming of God’s glorious kingdom! Let’s all turn our eyes upon Jesus!
