34 “Don’t imagine that I came to bring peace to the earth! I came not to bring peace, but a sword.35 ‘I have come to set a man against his father,

    a daughter against her mother,

and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law.

36     Your enemies will be right in your own household!’

37 “If you love your father or mother more than you love me, you are not worthy of being mine; or if you love your son or daughter more than me, you are not worthy of being mine. 

38 If you refuse to take up your cross and follow me, you are not worthy of being mine. 39 If you cling to your life, you will lose it; but if you give up your life for me, you will find it.

Matthew 10:34-39

Jesus didn’t come to bring peace on the earth, but a sword!  The reason why some homes are broken, is not because of physical or emotional problems, but many times it’s a Jesus problem.  You might be the only person in your family that believes in Jesus, or maybe, you got married before you came to faith in Christ, but your spouse hasn’t made it yet. 

Many of you may come from different countries where its illegal or not safe to openly be a Christian and Jesus causes division, but for the right cause – salvation.  Whether your family, spouse, children, or friends reject Jesus, you have to stand firm on your faith and take up your cross. 

There was a time when Jesus spoke openly and a time when He spoke privately.  God will direct you on how to use your faith in Christ.  Draw close to Jesus, especially in these troubling times, and allow Him to operate in your life. 

Through surrender to God’s will and prayer, you will be who God has called you to be.  Don’t expect for the world to have peace, but you an have God’s perfect peace, through Jesus Christ in this world.

We hope today’s devotion has inspired you. We love you guys, and are constantly praying for you. Have a very blessed day.
