Shelter and shadow

Re: Verse reading–Mark 10:35-45; John 13:12-17; James 2:14-17 (day seven) 
“He who dwells in the SHELTER of the Most High will abide in the SHADOW of the Almighty.” (Psalm 91:1)
“If you know these things, you will be BLESSED if you do them.”  (John 13:17)
Jesus calls us to a life of blessing.  What He commands of us is difficult, no argument, but very beneficial.  His formula for abundant life.  In the ancient world a shadow was a good thing, a cool, protected place to stand in the desert heat.  Jesus promises this cool blessing to all who surrender to His life and example.  It is not enough to know what He teaches.  We must do what He teaches.  We must deny self and ego and begin to serve others. Those who do so begin to experience the results that are promised to the children of God.  Do you desire to live in the shelter and shadow of the Almighty?  Believe and begin today!
