One night?

May 10, 2009

The life of Jesus. Read Today: Jesus sails to Capernaum; Matthew 9:1; Mark 5:21: Luke 8:40

Matthew 9:1 BBE 
 1 And he got into a boat and went across and came to his town.

Kind of a weird verse to pick I think I can hear you saying.  He gets in a boat and goes back to his home.  Except what has been happening just before this.  He talks to the people in parables, then He tells the disciples to cross the sea while he sleeps.  They wake Him up scarred, they go across and meet a demonic man, heal Him and get back in the boat.  

Wait, they rowed all night in a storm to get to the other side to heal a man of his demon.  YES!

God may send you some place and park you there to tell His story.  Or he may send you on a one night mission.  You do not make the decision, you just need to do what He asks you to do when He asks you to do it. 

Read for tomorrow: Jairus asks Jesus to heal his daughter; Matthew 9:18-19; Mark 5:22-23; Luke 8:41-42
