31 January 2019 – Mark 14:27 (NIV)

Scripture

27 “You will all fall away,” Jesus told them, “for it is written:

“‘I will strike the shepherd,
    and the sheep will be scattered.’

Reflection

Before, during, and after Jesus’s crucifixion his disciples forsook him. The very same people Jesus handpicked himself. People are fallible, weak and they can’t safe themselves. Hence the incredible act of love on the cross. However, when we look around us we see and realize our lives and situations aren’t stable, and our circumstances or will power can’t save us. Yet, many people (including ourselves) end up relying on money, people, and or even our careers instead of God. The Bible calls this “idol worship”.

Are you allowing “idol worships’ to steer you away from God, or does it make you even more so thankful that your salvation is not depended on circumstances, emotions or how well we do in our careers, but on Jesus’ precious blood (Woowon)

Pray for spiritual revolution; for God to soften the hearts of Bhutanese people and the King towards the gospel of Jesus. And pray for God to grant us boldness to share his Gospel.
