THE UPPER ROOM 13 MAY 2022 DAILY DEVOTIONAL FOR FRIDAY

TODAY’S TOPIC: BEING JESUS’ DISCIPLES
Matheus Claus (Jakarta, Indonesia)

TODAY’S READING
Luke 10:1-12

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
Following Christ is not easy, but the Spirit always accompanies us.

Jesus said, “Go on your way. See, I am sending you out like lambs into the midst of wolves.” – Luke 10:3 (NRSV)

The memory of three churches in Surabaya being bombed in the middle of Sunday services in 2018 is still clear in my mind. It was a devastating moment, especially for Christians in Indonesia. Many people were injured or killed, and we hope that such an event will never happen again.

Being a Christian is not always easy. Even Jesus said in the scripture that he sends us like lambs into the midst of wolves. It can be a dangerous task to follow Christ. Nevertheless, Jesus told us that he will be with us as we keep the faith and follow him.

Jesus also told us to love our enemies. Even when people hate, suppress, or persecute us, we should never hold grudges. In fact, we should seek others’ well-being, pray to God on their behalf, and help them. For we are all the children of our Father in heaven, and Christ’s love lives in us through the Holy Spirit.

TODAY’S PRAYER

Heavenly Father, give us the strength and courage to follow Christ, to share the good news, and to love our enemies. We pray the prayer Jesus taught us, “Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, as in heaven, so in earth. Give us day by day our daily bread. And forgive us our sins; for we also forgive every one that is indebted to us. And lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from evil” (Luke 11:2-4, KJV). Amen.
