A Message from Jon

For ever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven.

Psalm 118:8

The Joy of Jesus to You All This Day!

I wanted to take a moment to express to you my deepest appreciation for you and thankfulness to Him in allowing us here at SearchLight the privilege of studying through God's Word together, day after day and year after year.

And one day soon together we will literally be at The Master's feet gleaning and gaining perfect understanding that will result in joyous and endless praise bursting forth from the deepest parts of our hearts!

And I am convinced that such joy and praise will indeed likely be proportional to our present hungering for and wrestling with and praying in and submitting to and the applying of The Scriptures on this side of Eternity.

So let's keep at it and keep with it until that Glorious Day when we conversate with Him about any-and-all aspects of His Eternal Word.

Amen? ... Amen!!

God Bless You All,

Jon


Daily Devotional
March 26
 
And ere the lamp of God went out in the temple of the LORD, where the ark of God was, and Samuel was laid down to sleep; that the LORD called Samuel . . .
1 Samuel 3:3-4 (a)
 
Samuel was ministering to the Lord when God spoke to him. Ministering to the Lord is different from ministering for Him. Ministering for the Lord is teaching a lesson, giving a sermon, helping someone in His name. Ministering to the Lord, on the other hand, is drawing near to Him personally and privately. Ministry to the Lord takes place not on stage, but in the pew. Ministry to the Lord is not about what others see us do, but what the Lord alone enjoys as we spend time with Him. Ministering to the Lord is the highest calling in life, and every single one of us can do it.

I love it when my wife makes a meal for me or irons my shirt. But those things can’t begin to compare to the love I feel when she’s ministering to me - being by my side, sharing with me, loving me. The same is true of the Lord. When you minister to Him, it’s a far higher calling than ministering for Him (Ezekiel 44).
 
This Daily Devotional is an excerpt from the book "A Day of Feasting" by Pastor Jon.
