29 Aug I’m Not a Smart Man
For each of of the next 21 days, I will be sharing specific ways believers can set themselves apart for Christ through prayer, fasting, and intentional focus. Yesterday was “despite your failures,” and today is “despite your lack of knowledge.”
Jesus doesn’t need you to be a scholar.
There are more books than you could ever read lining Christian bookstore shelves, and you may feel like you need a degree in theology to understand just what it is you believe.
Today’s Prayer: “Lord, you tell us to come to you like little children in order to enter the kingdom of heaven. In a world where we’re constantly confronted by all we don’t know, it can be hard to have the faith of a child, because we think we should have the knowledge of a scholar. While it is a privilege to have access to scholarly books and unlimited knowledge, sometimes we need to forget all the facts and just focus on you. Let us never be tempted to worship what we know instead of Who we know.”
