Light for My Path Daily Devotion
[Jesus said] “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake and the gospel’s will save it. For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world and forfeit his soul? For what can a man give in return for his soul?” (Mark 8:34-37 ESV)
Hymn ELH 43:7 Holy God, We Praise Thy Name
Spare Thy people, Lord, we pray,
By a thousand snares surrounded;
Keep us without sin today,
Never let us be confounded.
Lo, I put my trust in Thee;
Never, Lord, abandon me.
Jesus, my Savior, give me the strength of faith to daily follow You, no matter the consequences to me. Guide me through Your Word and comfort me in the certainty of my salvation by grace through faith. Amen.
