DAILY BREAD DEVOTION OF THE DAY 2ND SEPTEMBER 2022

Read today’s Our Daily Bread Devotional 2 September 2022 ODB Today titled Lighting Candles for our spiritual daily bread for growth and development today.

Be dressed ready for service and keep your lamps burning. – Luke 12:35

Today’s Scripture: Luke 12:35–40

It was noon, but the sun wasn’t visible. New England’s Dark Day began the morning of May 19, 1780, and lasted for hours. The cause of the surreal darkness was likely heavy clouds of smoke from massive wildfires in Canada, but many wondered if it might be judgment day.

The Connecticut governor’s council (senate) was in session, and when some considered adjourning because of the darkness, Abraham Davenport responded, “I am against adjournment. The day of judgment is either approaching, or it is not. If it is not, there is no cause for an adjournment; if it is, I choose to be found doing my duty. I wish therefore that candles may be brought.”

Davenport’s desire to be found faithfully performing the work God had given him to do on the day He returns is illustrative of Jesus’ words: “Be dressed ready for service and keep your lamps burning, like servants waiting for their master to return from a wedding banquet, so that when he comes and knocks they can immediately open the door for him. It will be good for those servants whose master finds them watching when he comes” (Luke 12:35–37).

Day or night, it’s always good to serve our Savior. Even when darkness encroaches, His promises for all who look forward to Him will stand. Like candles in the darkness, may our “light shine before others, that they may see” (Matthew 5:16) and love and serve Him too. By:  James Banks


Bible in a Year: Psalms 137–139, 1 Corinthians 13


REFLECT: What would you do differently if you knew Jesus was coming tomorrow? How will you shine His light today?

PRAYER: Come soon, Jesus! I pray You’ll find me ready on that day, and that the way I live now will draw others to You.
