Deciding Daily

We’ve been looking at John 13:15, and seeing that we should do as Jesus has done for us. Here’s a devotional poem from Christ-following gastroenterologist Jeff Hallett seeing the same. It’s called “Deciding Daily.”

The love of power,
or the power of love?
Jesus, help me see:

my pride
put to death
by humility;

my worry
put to death
by faith;

my uncertainty
put to death
by hope;

my self-love
put to death
by your love.

Passion with tears flows
from the power of your love.

Passion with anger flows
from my self’s love of power.

Give me passion with tears today.
