Devotional for November 6

Because I Love Jesus

Author: James Rowe

Scripture: Matthew 5:15-17

Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven. Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them.

Hymn lyrics:
My path may be lonely, and dark be the night,
The clouds may be hiding the sun from my sight,
Yet I have assurance that all will be right,
Because I love Jesus.

Because I love Jesus, Jesus
Because I love Jesus;
My soul is at rest, and in Him I am blest;
Because I love Jesus.

Because I love Jesus, my Savior and thine,
There’s peace in my soul, there is comfort divine;
’Twill always abide, for the promise is mine,
Because I love Jesus.


Though loved ones be taken away from my side,
Though riches and honor to me be denied,
Yet if I but trust Him no ill can betide,
Because I love Jesus.


Though all that is evil against me combine,
Though Satan around me his snares should entwine,
Yet if I am faithful a crown will be mine,
Because I love Jesus.


Today's thoughts:
We know Jesus will carry us in our troubled times for He is our constant friend. Just as the white water of the river moves quickly and dashes against the rocks, we are tossed about--feeling vulnerable and alone. We cry out to Jesus and feeling His presence we know we are not alone! Jesus is our strength and refuge, a present help in times of trouble. As we safely reach the shore, we tell the good news to others, because we love Jesus and we know He loves us
