Genesis 36-38, John 15
So thankful for the Holy Spirit and for conviction. As hard as it is, I’m grateful for a God who convicts us out of His unconditional love for us. He ALWAYS has our best interests at heart!!
And praise the Lord for sparing Tamar’s life! And for Judah doing the right thing and not trying to cover it up or burn her anyway when he found out it was his child inside of her.
I don’t think I’ve ever read the story of Judah and Tamar. It was very interesting.
abide in me, and i in you. as the branch cannot bear fruit unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in me.
The cord that Tamar asked reminded me of Rahab when she asked the spies to save her by a scarlet thread. Tamar was supposed to be burned by Judah, but her life was preserved after she showed him the cord. Jesus said every branch that does not bear fruit will be thrown away into the fire and burned. Then He said we should abide in him if we want to bear fruit. Jesus is our scarlet thread that saves us, and our cord that keeps us abiding in His love.
I think it’s so wonderful that Jesus refers to us as his friends❤️
“Remain in me and I remain in you.” I loved today’s reading. ❤️ Day 17 done!
