Billy Graham Daily Devotions 25 January 2019 – Don’t Lose Sight
Memorise: . . . when they found him not, they turned back again to Jerusalem . . . —Luke 2:45
We might as well face it, strife has even infiltrated our church life. It is true enough that the Church is now the Church militant. But, as such, its warfare ought to be that of dedication to revealed truth and divine holiness, and not intramural bickering and carnal disputes.

We read in the second chapter of Luke that Joseph and Mary lost Jesus one day. Where did they lose Him? They lost Him in the most unlikely place in all the world-the Temple. I have seen many people lose Jesus right in the church. Billy Graham Daily Devotions 25 January 2019
I have seen them lose Him in a dispute about who was to be choir director, who was to play the organ, who was to be an elder, or who was to be the minister. Yes, because we are human, though Christian, it is easy to lose sight of Jesus right in the temple!
Prayer for the day (Billy Graham Daily Devotions 25 January 2019)
Don’t let me lose sight of You, Lord, in the complex logistics of everyday life.
