Scripture Ref. Matt. 10:34-42; Ephesians 5:28-33; Matt. 22:37-40


Father, as we continue to strive to be disciples, we receive Your instruction about the cost of discipleship. In these scriptures of Matthew we read that Jesus, “Didn’t come to bring peace but a sword.”Jesus said that He has come to set family member against family member, and that, “a man’s foes will be those of his own household.”   The Ten Commandments tell us to “Honor your father and mother.”   From Ephesians we read that a husband is to love his wife as himself. These passages seem to be contradictory, and yet if we continue to read in Matthew, we realize that our love for Jesus must overshadow the love we have for our family members. Matthew continues with these words, “You shall love the Lord Your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind…….”   We understand that Jesus must be first in our lives. The conflict in the home comes when one believes and another does not, when one believes that this scripture applies to life today, but that one does not. Often we are judged by others for our willingness to serve Christ and the church. They think that as we witness to others of our faith we are “holier than thou,”or “who does he/she think he/she is to pray for healing of the sick and anoint with oil”, yet the scriptures tell us that we should do as Jesus did. His twelve disciples followed His instruction. So did the seventy. Lord, help us to keep our eyes on You as we strive to follow Your instruction, to walk as You walked. May our lives be a reflection of Him. Heal us when the sword of Your word separates us from each other. Give us Your peace as we strive to be obedient and committed to Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. In His holy name we pray, AMEN!
