Hebrews 10:24 “And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds.” Have you been watching the daily Dr. Luke Travelogue videos posted on the SRC website and app? It has been so encouraging reading through the book of Luke together as a church. What has been the most encouraging to me is watching the Travelogue videos and seeing both SRC staff and lay leaders spending time in God’s word to encourage their own souls but also to then encourage others toward love and good deeds. The readings are shorter so you are really able to meditate and focus on a few verses each day. Join hundreds of others here at SRC in reading through the book of Luke by going to our website or SRC app for the daily readings and video.

Reflection, Elba Ramirez

“DO NOT BE DISCOURAGED by the difficulty of keeping your focus on Me.  I know that your heart’s desire is to be aware of My Presence continually.  This is a lofty goal; you aim toward it but never fully achieve it in this life.  Don’t let feelings of failure weigh you down.  Instead, try to see your self as I see you.  First of all, I am delighted by your deep desire to walk closely with Me through your life.  I’m pleased each time you initiate communication with Me. In addition, I notice the progress you have made since you first resolved to live in My Presence” from Jesus Calling by Sarah Young.  This devotional gives me so much peace and joy because as much as I try to keep my focus on Jesus, the distractions of this world pressures me and I tend to wander.  However, God’s unconditional love for me reminds me, “Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies. Who then is the one who condemns? No one. Christ Jesus who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us”. Romans 8:33-34
