Back in 2003 after having spent the year before reading Sarah Ban Breathnach's book "Simple Abundance" I took her suggestion to heart and wrote my own daily devotional. Each day I took a line or two from one of the various spiritual authors from the last three centuries I was reading and wrote my own thoughts on the subject. I then looked for a scripture that illustrated the truth that had been revealed to me. What follows is the result.

"Our greatest bondage is to have our own way; our greatest freedom is to let God have His way." Warren Wiersbe

April 12

“Truth is a Person, not a concept.  Jesus said He was the Truth (John 14:6).”  H. Blackaby, Experiencing God Day-by-Day, 4/12

Today there seems to be more than one Truth, at least this is what the world would have you to believe.  To accept anything as an absolute raises people’s hackles and the "perpetrator" is labeled prejudiced or bigoted.  This is why what Christ stands for isn’t what we need to be preaching because in the minds of the lost that is arguable.  Instead we must “preach” Christ, Himself.  Nothing can stand against Christ.  All arguments, all doubts must fall before Him for He has already won the victory.  And how do we preach Christ?  The only way is by our own lives.  His power, His strength, His love is what the world must see in us.  It must be clear that it is not I, but Him.  This Truth they cannot resist.  So, if you’re having a difficult time reaching someone, make sure you aren’t blocking their view of Christ.

“Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but by me.”  John 14:6
