DAY 51 - Get Up And Follow Jesus

Today’s Reading: Mark 2

(Please read Mark 2: 1 – 28 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 2:

“Follow me,” Jesus told him, and Levi got up and followed him.. Mark2:14

Today Jesus draws my attention to two words and both of them appears 4 times in Mark 2:
Paralytic (v. 3,4,5 and 9)
Get up (v. 9, 11, 12 and 14)

Lots of time we are paralyzed because of our own sins. The paralytic had his, Levi had his and we have ours. It’s because of that we are paralyzed and cannot do what we need to do to honor Jesus and unable to follow Him.

So today, Jesus says, “Repent and your sins will be forgiven. Get up and follow me!”

Dear Lord Jesus,

I don’t want to be a paralytic, help me to get up and follow you. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.
