Sometimes it would be easier to stop trying so hard to follow Jesus. Matt Hammit (writer and vocalist of “Lead Me“) has felt that. But here is one thing about Jesus that will help you keep going. Combat those feelings of weariness and inferiority and know that you don’t have to go it alone!

 

Read (from the New Living Translation)

There’s a lot to learn and there’s so much we don’t know! But Jesus keeps teaching us everyday and never leaves us hanging.

We see Jesus teaching and investing in people throughout the book of Luke. In today’s reading we see more examples of how much He spent time instilling truth into the people around Him while here on earth. The cool part is, His character and desire to teach us remains to this day.

Luke 21:29-37

Then he gave them this illustration: “Notice the fig tree, or any other tree. When the leaves come out, you know without being told that summer is near. In the same way, when you see all these things taking place, you can know that the Kingdom of God is near. I tell you the truth, this generation will not pass from the scene until all these things have taken place. Heaven and earth will disappear, but my words will never disappear.

“Watch out! Don’t let your hearts be dulled by carousing and drunkenness, and by the worries of this life. Don’t let that day catch you unaware, like a trap. For that day will come upon everyone living on the earth. Keep alert at all times. And pray that you might be strong enough to escape these coming horrors and stand before the Son of Man.”

Every day Jesus went to the Temple to teach, and each evening he returned to spend the night on the Mount of Olives.

Tap here to finish Luke 21 from the Immerse Bible!

Note: If you’ve read the Bible before, you may notice there are no chapter or verse marks in today’s reading. We got this idea from the Immerse Bible. They’ve taken the entire story of Jesus and stripped it of all distractions – this way it’s a more relaxed read. Like you’re reading a beautiful story. You should check it out!

I needed to hear this today! “Keep my eyes on the prize!”

It’s amazing to think that one day we will see Jesus, our Savior. All the “doing right” will be MORE than worth it!

The doing right is what will make up our white Lenin robes, weaved from our righteous acts. The Only thing we can take with us . Thank God for repentance and His forgiveness, so they don’t follow us.

Great message today thank you I really need to focus on my glory being after this life thank you for the reminder!

I so agree, CarrieAnn. 2 Corinthians 4.17: “For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.”

WOW, I love this truth, keep your eyes on the prize! I am participating in a bible study about the voice of God. This very fact was spoken last night. We must not waiver. If we get off track, refocus and know that God is with us!

Member

Isn’t it neat how God gives us His same Truth from 2 different settings in such a short span of time? God sure is speaking to you, Carol!

God’s word is alive. Reading His word from the 1611 gives the ability to use a Strong’s concordance and find the exact words that were spoken in the prophesies. Using a Greek, Hebrew Chaldean dictionary then allows us to find unequivocally what God was saying. It sounds like a lot but it makes the Word make since. God wants us to understand what His letter to us is saying. Not just a verse but all of it. Praise God He gave us His word.

Amen. I use this resource all the time. God & His Word are so rich!

Indeed, we will all have weaknesses in this life. But, that is nothing to freak out over. It just means we’re human.

Member

Yes, Noah. We are “duller” than we think. Gotta keep focused on Him as we read His Word & live what we believe in obedience to Him.
