Mark 6

I found it interesting that the Lord couldn’t do anything significant in His own town because the people did not have faith! The Lord could have preformed many signs, but since the people did not have faith, He couldn’t. I don’t want to be this way! I want to have faith that allows the Lord to do significant things in my life. I don’t want to hinder what He wants to do because I have little faith.

Matthew 26

I love where Jesus says that wherever the Gospel is preached, people will hear about the woman who poured on him the fragrant oil. I think that’s so crazy because it’s true! I’m reading about it right now and that’s just so awesome!
When Peter tells Jesus that he will not stumble because He is with him, but Jesus tells Peter he will deny Jesus three times by the Roosters' crow resonates with me because I do the same thing. I tell people God is with me when it benefits me because we have a selfish nature as humans.
It was so sweet to be able to relate to Jesus and know that he too has felt "overwhelmed with sorrow to the point of death." It reminded me of Hebrews 4:15 that says "For we do not have a High Priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses." I also enjoyed how Jesus continuously went to the Lord in prayer in this time, and was so open to the Lord's will being done even in the midst of feeling sorrowful and troubled.

Matthew 25

Matthew 13

The parable of the sewing of the seeds stood out to me as I need to strive to welcome the Word with a willing heart.
Matthew 6-7

The Lord will reward YOU.
Matthew 7:24 - " Everyone therefore who hears these words of Mine and does them shall be likened to a prudent man who built his house upon the rock "

Not only do we need to hear, but we also need to DO and follow His words. In such a way, we will be living and working daily on His wise word, which is the will of the Father.
Matthew 5

I loved it when the Bible states “love your enemies” that’s so true. I have problems with this sometimes so that really speaks to me.
