eSeed: Using A Word Seven Times

Read John 1:1-12

A language arts teacher was stressing the need of a large vocabulary to her English class. “Using a word seven times,” she insisted, “will make it yours.”

Mary was in love with John and she wanted to make him love her. So she said seven times, “John, John, John, John, John, John, John.”

But just as repeating John’s name didn’t make him hers, so repeating the name of the Lord won’t make Him yours. But receiving Him in your heart will.

Say to Him, “Lord Jesus, I receive Thee. Here’s my body, live in it. Here’s my brain, think through it. Here’s my face, glow from it. Here’s my heart, love with it.”

Prayer: Knowing, heavenly Father, that my body belongs to Thee, I yield myself completely to Thee – every part of me – to be used for Thy good purposes. Have Thine own way in my life: through Christ. Amen.
