To be devoted to God is to draw near to him and immerse yourself in His Word. It is during those precious hours when we connect heart to heart with our Saviour.
"You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart." Jeremiah 29:13
She knew suffering, rejection, and shame and yet love so profound lifted her out of despair and changed her life forever. Her name was Mary Magdalene. Some labeled her prostitute; others called her adulteress. Still, the love of Christ freed her from the 12 demons that tormented her and filled her life with hope. The love and devotion she felt for Jesus became living proof that she was a follower of Christ. When we see others through the eyes of Christ-like love, it changes our vision completely. It allows us to see beyond our prejudices, jealousy, and hatred and witness what our Father God wants us to see. Our humanity. Mary’s tears of remorse were evidence that she understood full well how undeserving she was of such love. Her faith and love for Christ is a daily reminder that Jesus can change any sinners’ life radically! -Devotionals by Lois Macdonald
