Today’s Reading: Mark 4
(Please read Mark 4: 1 – 41 and listen to what the Lord Jesus Christ would like to tell you before reading my Spiritual Journal below. If you would like to learn a simple and good way of Daily Devotion method please read my “Count Down 5” from this blog. You may click this link directly for the method: Subject Shifting Devotion.pdf . (You may begin with a song to praise the Lord and complete you devotion by singing another praise song.)
Please click the links below to Mark 4:
Still others, like seed sown among thorns, hear the word; but the worries of this life, the deceitfulness of wealth and the desires for other things come in and choke the word, making it unfruitful. Mark4:18 - 19
I am so sad when I heard a member of our church telling me that I am not going to see a dear brother for at least two month for he has been going out to sea every Sunday in a sailboat. And then he said, “You are not going to see me tomorrow for I have to take some photos for my friend.”
This is the real situation for the unfruitfulness of a Christian. What is more important than going to church to worship our Lord and King on Sunday? I would rather die if you forbid me to go to church on Sunday and yet these two young men don’t feel anything wrong of not going to church. I don’t think they have daily devotion either.
The Church is a real club for so many Christians that they have other clubs and choices to go to always and going to church or being close to Jesus is a very low priority. Are you one of them?
Dear Lord Jesus,
Help me not to be distracted by other desires that I can be a fruitful disciple of you. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.
