DAY 64 - He's Able!
Today’s Reading: Mark 15 (Please read Mark 15: 1 – 47 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 15: ESV: http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Mark%2015&version=ESV NIV: http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Mark%2015&version=NIV Message: http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Mark%2015&version=MSG Pilate had Jesus flogged, and handed him over to be crucified. Mark 15: 8 Jesus this morning led me to underlined those words of what people did to Him. Every word became a vivid movie clip to me of how much Jesus loves me, that He suffered that much: Bound, led away, handed over, accused, crucify, crucify, flogged, crucified, struck, mocked, crucify, crucified, crucified, charged against, crucified, hurled insults, crucified, heaped insults. If my wife, my sons, my mom, my sister, my brother…suffer that much for me so that I can be changed to be more Christ-like, how do I feel? How do you feel? Can you see His Cross and His love for you and be changed?! Are you willing to bear your own cross for Him? What is that cross recently? Can you name it out? It’s not easy to name it without prayers. And it would be more difficult to be willing to bear your cross for Jesus without prayers! We are unable, only He is able! He’s able, He’s able, I know He’s able! I know he’s able to carry me through! He heals the broken hearted. And set the captive free… It is so wonderful now that Jesus leads me to sing this hymn again and again. I am so joyful, yes so joyful indeed! Praise the Lord! Dear Lord Jesus, Thank you for dying on the Cross for me. Open my eye to see your Cross and be changed to be more like you and be willing to bear my own cross for you. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.
