A Daily Purpose

Bible Study & Devotional Day 46

🔴 Abide in the Lord

Guiding Scripture: Psalm 35:9 “And my soul shall be joyful in the Lord: It shall rejoice in his salvation. 

We begin the Gospel according to Mark, believed to be the first written work. The church tradition considers Peter the Apostle the source of Mark’s account of Jesus’ life. This Gospel, believed to be written with a Greek audience in mind because various terms throughout the book, intentionally undermine the mythological gods and goddesses they worshiped. Mark set out to separate the pagan gods from the One True Living God. 

The Good News is Jesus.

Mark opens with John the Baptist preaching a baptism of repentance. That called for the readers to acknowledge the errors in their lives. John stressed transformation. The question for us: How have we missed the mark? For the wages of sin is death. We will pay for the known rebellion if we are unwilling to submit to our Lord. Jesus Christ is the Way, Truth, and Life. When we turn from our sinful ways, we can confidently seek forgiveness from our Lord. 

Even the Demon-Possessed Recognize God.

Mark 1:22-28 records how demons or evil spirits can speak through and use humans even in the church. Christ showed the Jewish people that their sacred places were not immune to evil. However, they (demons) recognize the Son of God and were afraid. Mark 1:25, And Jesus rebuked him, saying, “Be silent, and come out of him!”

As John the Forerunner of Christ preached to the people imploring them to change their inner self, he gives us four ways to reflect and seek God’s divine wisdom: 

1. To change your old way of thinking (mental habits) 

2. Regret past sins (express sorrow and turn away from repetition) 

3. Live a life that proves repentance. 

4. Seek God for a purpose-driven life abiding in Christ.  

Prayer: Lord renew a right spirit within me contend with those who contend with me. Fight against those who fight against me. Speak to my heart Lord, remind me and etch in my soul that Jesus is my Salvation. Amen

Daily Bible Study With Purpose

Proverbs 1:7 The fear of Jehovah is the beginning of knowledge, But the foolish despise wisdom and instruction.

 
 

🔴 Foolishness 

No one wants to be called a fool or foolish, but that is what Solomon calls the person who does not fear the Lord. We often refer to this kind of an individual as “know it all” or having a “dogmatic” opinion about everything. A closed-minded person is not willing to accept advice or counseling from anyone else.
 
We live when we can Google the answer to almost any question and receive it in seconds. Instantly is the new normal! Microwave. Microsoft. Microtonal. Minimum a tiny limited amount of time is the most we have to give God and each other; yes, we have genuinely become minimalists!

Reading the Book of Proverbs, we learn that God’s faith to honor Him and respect that He is the only one who knows it all. We become wise when we fear God, which is to reverence Him and be in awe of His unmatched power and causes us to obey his Word.

 

Let us pray: Dear God, we seek your will, and we desire to take on your character. As we live in a close relationship with you and with each other, please help us through your Holy Spirit. Strengthen our moral, spiritual growth, and faith in you so that we can gain more wisdom and understanding as we actively seek to make disciples for your kingdom wisely. Amen
