SOS: Salvation of Souls
Today's Daily Devotion - August 4, 2022
By Dr. George J. Ceremuga
The Kingdom of heaven is at hand. — Mathew 10:7
Do we demonstrate God’s kingdom by healing the sick, raising the dead, or casting out demons? Through God, all things are possible. All life and healing come from God. We are an extension of God’s love and instruments to glorify His holy name. Everything that we do is for the glory of God. Our lives as Ambassadors for Christ are meant to point people to the presence of God’s heavenly kingdom on earth as preparation for the goal of our faith: Salvation!
As you talk to Jesus and grow the divine exchange with Him moment to moment, your heart aligns with His heart and will and you experience pure peace in His presence. This prayer by St. John Henry Newman is a great grounding or centering prayer:
“Shine through me, and be so in me that every soul I come in contact with may feel your presence in my soul. Let them look up and see no longer me, but only Jesus Christ!”
Lord, shine through me!
