Light for My Path Daily Devotion
How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching? And how are they to preach unless they are sent? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news!” But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Isaiah says, “Lord, who has believed what he has heard from us?” So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ. (Romans 10:14-17 ESV)
Hymn ELH 505:4,5 O Lord, Who in Thy Love Divine
O Thou, who didst at Pentecost Send down from heav’n the Holy Ghost That He might with Thy Church abide Forever to defend and guide, Illuminate and strengthen, Lord, The preachers of Thy holy Word.
May all Thy pastors faithful be; Not lab’ring for themselves, but Thee; And may they feed with wholesome food The sheep and lambs bought by Thy blood; Tending Thy flock, O may they prove How dearly they the Shepherd love!
Heavenly Father, thank You for providing faithful pastors, who preach and teach according to Your Word. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
