A daily devotional through the Bible speaking with God as Adam and Eve may have in the garden east of Eden. Our website http://alittlewalkwithgod.com

summary

Jesus gave encouragement to those around Him as best He could so they could face the coming trial and perhaps better understand all the events that would happen in the three days that would transpire before they saw Him again. He wanted them to believe and perhaps these words of encouragement would get them through the grief until He could return to them. Then, of course, they would understand. And when His Spirit returned, they would have Him in them. They would really begin to comprehend all Jesus said to them and His words would open to them as never before.

Jesus wanted them to know the peace He enjoyed despite the coming trauma. Peace despite the accusations. Peace despite the coming crucifixion. Peace that the world will never enjoy. Peace that He leaves as a legacy to all His followers. Peace. The angels who heralded Jesus' birth said He would give peace to all people who pleased God. That is Jesus' legacy. Enjoy His peace.

summary

The shepherd metaphor probably means a lot less to you today than it did to those Jews who heard Jesus give it 2000 years ago. They saw shepherds every day tending sheep on the Judean hillsides. Many of them owned sheep and understood what it meant to hire out the job of tending sheep to low paid hired hands who ran from danger.

Maybe a better metaphor for you can be found in a number of news articles that find their way into local papers these days. Gunmen enter a school and you hear about the heroics of teachers taking charge of their class of students. Those teachers protect the students in amazing ways, often standing in the way of gunfire and sometimes giving their lives to protect the children under their care from the random shooting of some crazed gunman. But at the sound of the first shot, most who are not given the responsibility of students flee from the scene as fast as they can. That’s the difference between the shepherd and the hired hands in the metaphor.

summary

It would be easy to say all of Jesus' wisdom came from the God side of Him, but that is only half the story. Jesus was completely God, but also completely Man. His mother, Mary, and His earthly father, Joseph, made sure Jesus knew His real heritage from an early age and made sure the scriptures were available to Him. Joseph would read to Him often from the Law and the Prophets before He could read and Mary would help Him memorize long passages of scripture as a young boy.

Jesus would spend time meditating on what those scriptures meant and because of knowing the story of His birth, He could see the prophecies within those scriptures that pertained to Him throughout His life. Jesus saw the truth of His birth in Bethlehem, yet being called a Nazarene living in the town of Nazareth. He understood the cries of the mothers around Him since all the boys His age were killed by Herod. Jesus' parents fled to Egypt and His family was called out of Rahmah. He knew the story and the scriptures.

Throughout Jesus' life He made the scriptures part of His life and they awakened every day as His human life unfolded around Him. But you can use the scriptures the same way, you know. They are about Jesus, but when you let Him into your life, you can understand the scriptures with authority because of His Spirit in you and confound those around you.

summary

Why do you follow Jesus? He knew that many that crossed the Sea of Galilee to Capernaum that day were following Him only to see more miracles. They didn’t care about His teaching, they only wanted to see HIm turn a small lunch into enough to feed a crowd again. Or to cause a blind man to see. Or make a lame man walk. They followed Him to see some circus act and see what kind of spectacle He might perform in their presence so they could tell their children and their neighbors about it when they returned home.

But why do you follow Jesus?

summary

Do you stand in the shadow of someone? Do you feel jealous toward someone who has taken the limelight you once had? Did you ever consider that God has given that person their mission and He has something else in mind for you? John ultimately found himself in Herod’s prison and beheaded for preaching the truth to Herod and his wife. God probably won’t ask you to await execution for Him, but He might. Are you willing to stand the test for Him? The day might come when you must do just that, you know.

The real issue, God has plans for you that are yours and yours alone. He has plans for those around you that belong to them. God gives each person responsibilities and task fit for them. You cannot carry their cross and neither can they carry yours. Together, though, His ultimate plans for this world are completed so that His children find eternal rest in Him and the wicked never plague you again. Instead, as John says, they will experience God's wrath.

summary

I talked a few days ago about Paul’s words to you to work out your salvation with fear and trembling. Peter gives you a formula to help you in those efforts with the words you heard today. This effort in faith requires character building. God wants you to want Him as He’s told you many times. He wants you to desire to be like him. To be one of His disciples. To be a disciple takes work, devotion, commitment. It comes about by a change of habits and lifestyle. It takes changing your very character. God helps you with the process, but you also play a part in that transformation in your willingness to let Him transform you.

summary

Peter addresses his modern world. Many of his day assumed they would not like this new Christian religion because of its freedom from the rules established by Moses centuries before. So they fought against Peter and his compatriots. They assumed faith in Jesus as the living God-Man, born of woman and of God, could not be who He showed them He was and could not do the things He did even when they saw it with their own eyes or heard it from the lips of eyewitnesses.

Many were afraid of what others might think of them if they abandoned the religion they pledged their allegiance to as children or young adults and feared the isolation from their old religious order more than they feared the living God, as His Spirit spoke to them convicting and convincing them of sin. I know it’s hard to believe, but it’s true. Unfortunately, the same conditions exist today.

summary

James hits the nail on the head. The problem with humanity is selfishness. You don’t get what you want and war erupts within you. Then often it explodes in your behavior. Sometimes it even goes global with national policies and global alliances. You are selfish by nature. That’s the problem with every individual, every group, every town, every nation. You want to gratify your wants and don’t care what it might cost others. Envy and jealousy are your hallmarks.

Failure to align with God, though, means declaring war against Him. You can’t live on the fence. You are either fully for God, or fully against Him. There is no middle ground with Him. It just doesn’t work. You see, He is a jealous God. Yes, He wants His way. But His way is good. It is the best thing for you. He knows it is because He is God. He created you and all there is. He will judge you at the end of time. There will be no jury of your peers, because they have also sinned. Only God is holy. So He alone will judge you.

summary

As the Son of Man, Jesus felt all the same temptations you feel to yield to quick and unholy gratification of human desires. But the discipline the Father taught Him from an early age through His parents, His rabbis, God's word, and His Spirit helped Jesus keep from falling to the temptations Satan set before Him. Some of that discipline was painful emotionally, spiritually, and physically. Discipline is not always easy or pleasant, but necessary for growth. So even the Son of Man required discipline to withstand the temptations He would face later in His life as He faced the cross.

When suffering comes, think of it as a means to the end. Think of it as a part of the discipline process to make you able to stand just as the Father discipline His Son, Jesus so that He could stand. The suffering may not come from God. It may come as a result of the good you do for others. Remember Jesus promised you would have trouble in this world. But if you look at all suffering as discipline and not try to figure out which is which, you will be less likely to try to seek revenge. You will be more likely to forgive wrongs if you see all suffering as discipline from God. You will find more grace from Him as you struggle through the difficult circumstance of life.

summary

You think faith doesn’t work? Just listen again to the list of ancient heroes in Hebrews 11 whose success came because of a little faith. They were ordinary people who just chose to believe what God said. Their faith took them to the promises He made to them. God will do the same for you.
