Each week we select a popular teaching from Jon's archives. This week's teaching from Genesis is "How To Read Your Bible."

Good Morning SearchLighters!

The Psalmist inspiredly sang out, “Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path.”

I find that particular truth to be very “enlightening” indeed.

You see, a night traveler would carry a small lamp (lantern) in his hand that would shed light for his feet ... but only enough light for one step at a time!

Yet, he could look out far ahead into the distance and see the light from the village or city or house that the path he was on was taking him to.

So too, that’s how His Word so very frequently guides me personally.

He will give me just enough illumination to take the next step, but only for that next step.

Yet He enlightens me with inspiring clarity about “the big picture” of where this path I’m on is ultimately taking me, which is.... to Heaven!!!

So today, may His Word guide you into what is the next step you ought to take, and may His Word give you peace as you see the light of the Celestial City that the path we are on is leading us to ultimately.

Thankful for His Word...and for you too,

Jon Courson


Daily Devotional
July 20
 
And I will very gladly spend and be spent for you; though the more abundantly I love you, the less I be loved.
2 Corinthians 12:15
 
‘Others come and smite you in the face, take your money, pounce on you — and yet you respect them,’ says Paul. ‘Me? I give my all for you, yet the more I give to you, the less I’m loved by you.’

Why is it that the more you give to some people, the less they respect and love you? If someone is haughty and arrogant, sometimes people will be in awe of him. But if someone says, ‘I’m willing to spend all I have on your behalf,’ people think he must not be very special.

Don’t be depressed, surprised, or discouraged when the more you love people, the less they love you — for this provides you a great opportunity to give simply for the sake of giving in true agape love. When you give to someone and he gives back to you, when you’re nice to someone and she’s nice to you — that’s wonderful. But the highest form of giving is when you give and nothing is given back. Your reward will be great in Heaven, and your personality will be shaped more closely into the image of Jesus Christ.
