WEEKLY LESSON MAIL-OUT...OR.....GREETING WITH A 'HOLY KISS'

Sunday, January 13, 2019

 

Hi Everyone!

Today's lessons in the Lord were really great. We studied the third chapter of second Timothy and the first chapter in the gospel of Mark. It's wonderful how the Lord reaches all of us through the various teachings of the four gospels,and all scripture for that matter.

The Bible study on II Timothy Chapter 3 really focused on the integrity of worldly people and godly people. Paul goes through great lengths to teach Timothy, and us, to recognize people who reject God and embrace the world and flesh as opposed to those, like Paul, who seek the Lord in all things. These worldly folks, excluding witnessing, he warns Timothy to .....'have nothing to do with (them)'. Why? Yes we witness to them but God says be careful whom you have over for dinner. We are to influence them, not the other way around. Paul then encourages Timothy to remember that the Word of God is an inspired work, and good for: doctrine, reproof, correction, and instruction in righteousness. Paul is a good mentor to Timothy...and to us!

The sermon was on Mark Chapter 1. Mark was not one of the original 12, but he did know Jesus and his mentor was Peter. He was the first gospel writer and the other writers certainly knew his work. But know that the Holy Spirit lead all four gospel writers to pen each word; it was not the work of man but the work of God. Mark takes the story of Jesus at a fast pace, and in the first chapter he takes Jesus well into His ministry. Mark is anxious to get to the fulfillment of His glory- salvation to all! The chapter ends with Jesus healing by touch a man with leprosy who, coming to Jesus on his knees, asks for Jesus to 'cleanse him'. You know, that's the same story of each of us, who came to Jesus, asking Him, worshiping Him as Lord, for grace. He cleansed the unclean, and that was you and me before we were remitted of our sins by His precious blood. Amen to that!

 

Blessings!
