The First Sunday after Epiphany
PSAM 119:37 (MSG)
Divert my eyes from toys and trinkets,
invigorate me on the pilgrim way.
COLOSSIANS 2:6-7 (ABP)
So, then, just as you welcomed Jesus the Lord as your messianic king, continue walking with him. Sink deep roots into his life. Allow your life to develop in the way that a solid structure is built -- brick upon brick -- bonded together with faith.
Stay on track with Jesus and you'll become a solid person.
Lord Jesus, I'm so glad that you've come into my life. I want to grow in my walk with you but I'm easily distracted by the shiny trinkets that litter the pathway. Help me to stay focused. I want to become one of your mature, convinced, and convincing followers. Amen.
