Last week I sat down to read my Daily Bread devotional. The scripture began in Luke 11. I started reading verse one. “One day Jesus…” I couldn’t read any farther. The words “one day Jesus” continue to reverberate in my mind. I said the words over and over.
Verse one of Luke 11 precedes the verses where Jesus teaches his disciples how to pray. Yet I couldn’t get past the simple meaning I found in those three words. Jesus came to earth from heaven dwelling in time and space. He walked the earth for approximately 12,045 days. On one of those days, he taught his disciples to pray. On many the other days, he taught people how to live and love each other. And on the final day, he made the supreme sacrifice giving his life for all mankind.
The reality of the message hit me square in the middle of my heart. One day we will see Jesus face to face. One day we’ll live in His presence for all eternity. One day, a day will never end. One day Jesus. Halleluiah.
“One day Jesus was praying in a certain place. When he finished, one of his disciples said to him, ‘Lord, teach us to pray, just a John taught his disciples.'” Luke 11:1
Dear Lord, I thank You for the reality of Jesus Christ, our Savior. You sent Him to this earth for a very specific purpose and out of Your love. Through Him and Him alone can we receive forgiveness of sins and join You someday in heaven. Amen.
