Daily Devotions for Saturday, December 26, 2020

Good Morning Watsontown United Methodist Family,

Today’s Daily Devotions will be a “Lead Yourself” devotion.

Theme: The Word Became Flesh

In Your unbounded love You have shown us Your face and made Your way known among all the nations. May we recognize in Your decision to become one flesh with us an invitation to live gratefully with others as one family, gathered and held together in Your holy name. In the name of Jesus, Amen.

Psalm: Psalm 67

May God be gracious to us and bless us and make his face shine on us— so that your ways may be known on earth, your salvation among all nations. May the peoples praise you, God; may all the peoples praise you. May the nations be glad and sing for joy, for you rule the peoples with equity and guide the nations of the earth. May the peoples praise you, God; may all the peoples praise you. The land yields its harvest; God, our God, blesses us. May God bless us still, so that all the ends of the earth will fear him.

Song: O Come O Come Emmanuel

Reading: Hebrews 5:7-10

During the days of Jesus’ life on earth, he offered up prayers and petitions with fervent cries and tears to the one who could save him from death, and he was heard because of his reverent submission. Son though he was, he learned obedience from what he suffered and, once made perfect, he became the source of eternal salvation for all who obey him and was designated by God to be high priest in the order of Melchizedek.

Reflection

What “new” insight did you gain from today’s text ? How might you be able to apply today’s reading to your day today? Who would you like to share today’s reading with?

Closing Prayer

May the God of untrodden ways, who has chosen to live as one of us, guide us and keep us on the road to fullness of life. In the name of Jesus, Amen.
