Today’s Reading: Mark 7
(Please read Mark 7: 1 – 37 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 7:
“What comes out of a man is what makes him ‘unclean’”. Mark 7:20
Almost every time I read this passage about how unclean a man could be, I think of other people. Who are those people who have evil thoughts, sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery, greed, malice, deceit, lewdness, envy, slander, arrogance and folly? And I asked the Lord to do something to those disobedient people to make our world, our society and out church clean.
Today the Lord shows me He is talking about the reality of a human being. We are all unclean for there are lots of things within that make us unclean. If we know that we are unclean, then we have a chance to ask the Lord to help us just like how the woman asked Jesus to help her daughter or how those people asked Jesus to heal the deaf.
Do we know that Jesus was talking about us? Do we know we are unclean and need the blood of Jesus to cleanse us? Do you know how unclean you are?
Dear Holy Spirit,
Shine of me that I can see my sins and that I know how to repent and ask for your forgiveness. I need your blood to cleanse me that I can have a clean heart to serve you.
In Jesus name I pray. Amen.
