“Are You dthe Coming One, or do we look for another?”
Reflection: Even John the Baptist asked to know if Jesus was the Messiah. In the midst of personal suffering and persecution, John the Baptist had asked the question to know whether Jesus was the coming Messiah. Certainly John the Baptist's situation was very grave and difficult in prison and at a time of difficulty, he needed confirmation. Jesus said to the messenger disciples, “Go and tell John the things which you hear and see: The blind see and the lame walk; the lepers are cleansed and the deaf hear; the dead are raised up and the poor have the gospel preached to them."
Application: Are you needing a personal confirmation from Jesus in a particular area or matter in your life? Knowing the high regard of John the Baptist, we too can ask for help. Tell Him about it and ask Him to help you with confirmation, guidance, wisdom, and direction. Remember to seek answers within the Bible.
The New King James Version. 1982 (Mt 11:3). Nashville: Thomas Nelson.
Passing along the street near her corner; And he took the path to her house. Proverbs 7:8 NKJV
Reflection: This young man was passing by the street corner where a crafty harlot was located. He decided to take the path to her place. Nothing can short-circuit your spiritual life like sexual sin. Proverbs warns of the impact and so does the New Testament. It says the woman he met was dressed as a harlot and she had a subtle heart.
Application: Have you failed sexually? God can forgive you. Has he restored you? Humbly thank him. Are you being tempted? Read Proverbs 7 and also 1 Thessalonians 4.
“The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.” Matthew 9:37-38 NKJV
Reflection: The were many people who Jesus saw that needed help and the Bible said that when Jesus saw the many people, he was "moved with compassion." He we stirred because of the situation that was around him when he saw the number of lost people. Scripture likens it to sheep without a shepherd.
Application: Do you see people today in your world who are like sheep without a shepherd. Ask God that he would grant hearts of compassion to reach out. Pray and ask the Lord to "send out laborers into His harvest."
The New King James Version. 1982 (Mt 9:37–38). Nashville: Thomas Nelson.
"But only speak a word, and my servant will be healed." Matthew 8:8 (NKJV)
Reflection: The man who spoke these words was an important leader who had a serously ill servant. This man had respect for Jewish culture and supported it. When it came to Jesus Christ, he knew that He was more than a man, this was the Son of God. This man knew his own unworthiness in the sight of a holy God. He knew that if Jesus would just say the word, it would be done and he didn't even have to have him come to the place where he was located. He realized Jesus Christ had the power to heal from any place at any time and only by the word of His mouth. Jesus responded that He had not found faith like this
Application: Is there someone you know who is suffering and needing healing? Ask the Savior and Divine Healer, Jesus Christ, to say the word for them to be healed.
The New King James Version. 1982 (Mt 8:8). Nashville: Thomas Nelson.
There are two types of people in the world. There are people busy doing many things, but only one of these two will last...
