Light for My Path Daily Devotion
“Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. By their fruit you will recognize them. You do not gather grapes from thorn bushes or figs from thistles, do you? So then, every good tree produces good fruit, but a bad tree produces bad fruit. A good tree cannot produce bad fruit, and a bad tree cannot produce good fruit. Every tree that does not produce good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. So then, by their fruit you will recognize them. (Matthew 7:15-20 EHV)
Hymn ELH 486:3,5 The Church’s One Foundation
The Church shall never perish!
Her dear Lord, to defend,
To guide, sustain, and cherish,
Is with her to the end.
Though there be those that hate her,
False sons within her pale,
Against both foe and traitor
She ever shall prevail.
Mid toil and tribulation
And tumult of her war
She waits the consummation
Of peace forevermore,
Till with the vision glorious
Her longing eyes are blest
And the great Church victorious
Shall be the Church at rest.
Heavenly Father, protect Your Church and Your people. Give to all faithful servants who will declare all of Your Word. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
