Jesus Restores a Demon-Possessed Man
Mark 5:1-20

Daily Readings

Genesis 43:16-34
16 When Joseph saw Benjamin with them, he said to the steward of his house, “Take these men to my house, slaughter an animal and prepare a meal; they are to eat with me at noon.” 17 The man did as Joseph told him and took the men to Joseph’s house. 18 Now the men were frightened when they were taken to his house. They thought, “We were brought here because of the silver that was put back into our sacks the first time. He wants to attack us and overpower us and seize us as slaves and take our donkeys.” 19 So they went up to Joseph’s steward and spoke to him at the entrance to the house. 20 “We beg your pardon, our lord,” they said, “we came down here the first time to buy food. 21 But at the place where we stopped for the night we opened our sacks and each of us found his silver—the exact weight—in the mouth of his sack. So we have brought it back with us. 22 We have also brought additional silver with us to buy food. We don’t know who put our silver in our sacks.” 23 “It’s all right,” he said. “Don’t be afraid. Your God, the God of your father, has given you treasure in your sacks; I received your silver.” Then he brought Simeon out to them. 24 The steward took the men into Joseph’s house, gave them water to wash their feet and provided fodder for their donkeys. 25 They prepared their gifts for Joseph’s arrival at noon, because they had heard that they were to eat there. 26 When Joseph came home, they presented to him the gifts they had brought into the house, and they bowed down before him to the ground. 27 He asked them how they were, and then he said, “How is your aged father you told me about? Is he still living?” 28 They replied, “Your servant our father is still alive and well.” And they bowed down, prostrating themselves before him. 29 As he looked about and saw his brother Benjamin, his own mother’s son, he asked, “Is this your youngest brother, the one you told me about?” And he said, “God be gracious to you, my son.” 30 Deeply moved at the sight of his brother, Joseph hurried out and looked for a place to weep. He went into his private room and wept there. 31 After he had washed his face, he came out and, controlling himself, said, “Serve the food.” 32 They served him by himself, the brothers by themselves, and the Egyptians who ate with him by themselves, because Egyptians could not eat with Hebrews, for that is detestable to Egyptians. 33 The men had been seated before him in the order of their ages, from the firstborn to the youngest; and they looked at each other in astonishment. 34 When portions were served to them from Joseph’s table, Benjamin’s portion was five times as much as anyone else’s. So they feasted and drank freely with him.

1 Corinthians 7:10-24
10 To the married I give this command (not I, but the Lord): A wife must not separate from her husband. 11 But if she does, she must remain unmarried or else be reconciled to her husband. And a husband must not divorce his wife. 12 To the rest I say this (I, not the Lord): If any brother has a wife who is not a believer and she is willing to live with him, he must not divorce her. 13 And if a woman has a husband who is not a believer and he is willing to live with her, she must not divorce him. 14 For the unbelieving husband has been sanctified through his wife, and the unbelieving wife has been sanctified through her believing husband. Otherwise your children would be unclean, but as it is, they are holy. 15 But if the unbeliever leaves, let it be so. The brother or the sister is not bound in such circumstances; God has called us to live in peace. 16 How do you know, wife, whether you will save your husband? Or, how do you know, husband, whether you will save your wife? 17 Nevertheless, each person should live as a believer in whatever situation the Lord has assigned to them, just as God has called them. This is the rule I lay down in all the churches. 18 Was a man already circumcised when he was called? He should not become uncircumcised. Was a man uncircumcised when he was called? He should not be circumcised. 19 Circumcision is nothing and uncircumcision is nothing. Keeping God’s commands is what counts. 20 Each person should remain in the situation they were in when God called them. 21 Were you a slave when you were called? Don’t let it trouble you—although if you can gain your freedom, do so. 22 For the one who was a slave when called to faith in the Lord is the Lord’s freed person; similarly, the one who was free when called is Christ’s slave. 23 You were bought at a price; do not become slaves of human beings. 24 Brothers and sisters, each person, as responsible to God, should remain in the situation they were in when God called them.

Mark 5:1-20
1 They went across the lake to the region of the Gerasenes. 2 When Jesus got out of the boat, a man with an impure spirit came from the tombs to meet him. 3 This man lived in the tombs, and no one could bind him anymore, not even with a chain. 4 For he had often been chained hand and foot, but he tore the chains apart and broke the irons on his feet. No one was strong enough to subdue him. 5 Night and day among the tombs and in the hills he would cry out and cut himself with stones. 6 When he saw Jesus from a distance, he ran and fell on his knees in front of him. 7 He shouted at the top of his voice, “What do you want with me, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? In God’s name don’t torture me!” 8 For Jesus had said to him, “Come out of this man, you impure spirit!” 9 Then Jesus asked him, “What is your name?” “My name is Legion,” he replied, “for we are many.” 10 And he begged Jesus again and again not to send them out of the area. 11 A large herd of pigs was feeding on the nearby hillside. 12 The demons begged Jesus, “Send us among the pigs; allow us to go into them.” 13 He gave them permission, and the impure spirits came out and went into the pigs. The herd, about two thousand in number, rushed down the steep bank into the lake and were drowned. 14 Those tending the pigs ran off and reported this in the town and countryside, and the people went out to see what had happened. 15 When they came to Jesus, they saw the man who had been possessed by the legion of demons, sitting there, dressed and in his right mind; and they were afraid. 16 Those who had seen it told the people what had happened to the demon-possessed man—and told about the pigs as well. 17 Then the people began to plead with Jesus to leave their region. 18 As Jesus was getting into the boat, the man who had been demon-possessed begged to go with him. 19 Jesus did not let him, but said, “Go home to your own people and tell them how much the Lord has done for you, and how he has had mercy on you.” 20 So the man went away and began to tell in the Decapolis how much Jesus had done for him. And all the people were amazed.

Prayer of the Day for SATURDAY, March 3, 2018


Heavenly Father, I come before you today to ask for wisdom.  I know You know everything, so I submit my thoughts and understanding to You.  I am your disciple, help me to transform my understandings to Your perspective. Your Word says that if we ask for wisdom You will give it freely and without limit. I understand that even in my wisest moment, it is nothing compared to Your most foolish thought.  My perspective has only gone as far as I could see.  Jesus, You have opened my eyes to see from Your perspective. Father, I respect You above all else and desire for You to teach me Your ways, which is wisdom. I know that Your wisdom is always pure, peace loving, considerate, full of mercy, and impartial. I ask Holy Spirit to teach my mind to always think in those ways because I know that is how wise people think. I also ask that You would bring wise people into my life and help me listen to them and accept their correction as I absorb their wisdom. In the end Lord, I know that wisdom is just thinking like You think and I want to be just like You. This is the desire of my heart. In the might name of Jesus, I thank You Lord that you have already given me wisdom.  I have it now,
Amen.

Morning Devotions with Chaplain Kenny - 4 Ways to Get Wisdom


4 Ways to Get Wisdom

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.
~ Proverbs 9:10 (NIV)

Wisdom is a capacity of the mind that allows us to understand life from God’s perspective. Throughout the book of Proverbs, Solomon encourages us to “get wisdom” (Proverbs 4:5). He says those who get wisdom love life (see 19:8); that it’s better to get wisdom than gold (see 16:16); and that those who get wisdom find life and receive favor from the Lord (see 8:32–35).

Yet in Ecclesiastes 7:23–24 Solomon also makes clear that getting wisdom is a challenging process: “ ‘I am determined to be wise’—but this was beyond me. Whatever exists is far off and most profound—who can discover it?”

Fortunately, Scripture provides us instruction in this area. Here are four Biblical instructions for how to get wisdom:

1. Fear God—Solomon says the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom (see Proverbs 9:10). But how should we fear God? Philipp Melanchthon, a collaborator of Martin Luther, discussed what it means to fear God by contrasting filial fear with servile fear. Filial fear is the type of respect and love a child has for a parent, a fear of offending the one they most adore and trust. In contrast, servile fear is the kind of fear that a prisoner has for his jailer or executioner.[1]

2. Desire wisdom—The second step to getting wisdom is to desire it with all our heart. As Solomon says, we must “look for it as for silver and search for it as for hidden treasure” (Proverbs 2:4).

3. Pray for wisdom—As James tell us, “If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you” (James 1:5).

4. Study God’s Word—The fourth step in getting wisdom is studying and meditating on God’s Word (see Psalm 19:7). We shouldn’t rely merely on our own understanding, though, but lean on the wisdom and insight produced by Christians throughout the church’s history.

To get wisdom we must fear God, study his Word and prayer-fully desire to understand life from God’s perspective.
Heavenly Father, I come before you today to ask for wisdom.  I know You know everything, so I submit my thoughts and understanding to You.  I am your disciple, help me to transform my understandings to Your perspective. Your Word says that if we ask for wisdom You will give it freely and without limit. I understand that even in my wisest moment, it is nothing compared to Your most foolish thought.  My perspective has only gone as far as I could see.  Jesus, You have opened my eyes to see from Your perspective. Father, I respect You above all else and desire for You to teach me Your ways, which is wisdom. I know that Your wisdom is always pure, peace loving, considerate, full of mercy, and impartial. I ask Holy Spirit to teach my mind to always think in those ways because I know that is how wise people think. I also ask that You would bring wise people into my life and help me listen to them and accept their correction as I absorb their wisdom. In the end Lord, I know that wisdom is just thinking like You think and I want to be just like You. This is the desire of my heart. In the might name of Jesus, I thank You Lord that you have already given me wisdom.  I have it now, Amen.
In Jesus,

Un dia a la Vez - Aprendemos cada día


Aprendemos cada día

Porque todo el que pide, recibe; el que busca, encuentra; y al que llama, se le abre.
~ Lucas 11:10 (NVI)

Debido a que he estado por mucho tiempo en la radio, soy más sensible y tengo más conocimiento de las necesidades de los demás. Así que, mediante este devocional, quiero que veas que no eres la única persona que sufre, se siente sola o enferma. Y que cuando clamamos por ayuda, Dios no nos deja esperando.

En días pasados, le pedíamos al Señor que nos permitiera tener más misericordia por los demás. Ahora, esas necesidades han hecho eco en mí. Y solo le pido a Dios que nos haga sensibles y sigamos aprendiendo de estas lecciones de vida.

En menos de una hora de programa radial, dos personas se pusieron en contacto con la cabina para informarnos que sus vidas eran un desastre. Coincidían en que conocen de Dios, pero que no es suficiente y claman por la ayuda de un consejo.

Recuerdo a Aurora que me llamó desesperada diciendo: «Claudia, estoy mal. Me siento muy mal de salud. Mi esposo es alcohólico y tengo cinco hijos». Cuando atendí su llamada y le hice algunas preguntas, me dijo que debido a tanto trabajo se ha alejado de Dios. Los domingos está tan cansada que prefiere no ir a la iglesia. Por lo tanto, mi reflexión fue: «Estando en necesidad, te acuerdas de Dios. Entonces, ¿por qué no cambias tus prioridades y le das el primer lugar a Dios?». También le dije: «Te aseguro que si le das el primer lugar a Dios, Él enderezará tus caminos».

¿Estás tú en esa misma situación? ¿Estás tan ocupado en tus cosas que no buscas de su instrucción? Invierte tus prioridades y nunca te arrepentirás.

Standing Strong Through the Storm - LIVING CHRIST IN THE FAMILY


LIVING CHRIST IN THE FAMILY

All your sons will be taught by the Lord, and great will be your children’s peace.
~ Isaiah 54:13 (NIV)

A frail old man went to live with his son, daughter-in-law, and four-year-old grandson. The old man’s hands trembled, his eyesight was blurred, and his step faltered. The family ate together at the table. But the elderly grandfather’s shaky hands and failing sight made eating difficult. Peas rolled off his spoon onto the floor. When he grasped the glass, milk spilled on the tablecloth.

The son and daughter-in-law became irritated with the mess. “We must do something about Grandfather,” said the son. “I’ve had enough of his spilled milk, noisy eating, and food on the floor.” So the husband and wife set a small table in the corner. There, Grandfather ate alone while the rest of the family enjoyed dinner.

Since Grandfather had broken a dish or two, his food was served in a wooden bowl. When the family glanced in Grandfather’s direction, sometimes he had a tear in his eye as he sat alone. Still, the only words the couple had for him were sharp admonitions when he dropped a fork or spilled food.

The four-year-old watched it all in silence. One evening before supper, the father noticed his son playing with wood scraps on the floor. He asked the child sweetly, “What are you making?”

Just as sweetly, the boy responded, “Oh, I am making a little bowl for you and Mama to eat your food in when I grow up.” The four-year-old smiled and went back to work.

The words so struck the parents that they were speechless. Then tears started to stream down their cheeks. Though no word was spoken, both knew what must be done.

That evening, the husband took Grandfather’s hand and gently led him back to the family table. For the remainder of his days he ate every meal with the family. And for some reason, neither husband nor wife seemed to care any longer when a fork was dropped, milk spilled, or the tablecloth soiled.

Children are remarkably perceptive. Their eyes ever observe, their ears ever listen, and their minds ever process the messages they absorb. If they see us patiently provide a happy, godly home atmosphere, they will imitate that attitude for the rest of their lives.

The wise parent realizes that every day the building blocks are being laid for their children’s future.

RESPONSE: Today I will purpose to live a life that exemplifies to everyone the love of Jesus…especially in my home.

PRAYER: Help me, Lord, to be a positive Christ-like impact on members of the younger generation.

The NIV Couples Devotional - Tending Our Marriage


Tending Our Marriage

Read Isaiah 5:1–7

“What more could have been done for my vineyard than I have done for it?”
~ Isaiah 5:4 (NIV)

When I was young, I attended the wedding of an extended family member. I don’t remember much about the ceremony, dancing or food. But I do remember the terrible fight at the reception. In front of all the guests, a woman screamed at her husband, broke down in tears and hid in a corner while her friends consoled her. The man yelled back, threatened to hit her, then stormed out of the building with his friends. He did not return that night.

It might shock you to learn that I’m describing the bride and groom. But it probably will not surprise you to learn that their marriage lasted less than a month.

In Isaiah 5, God addressed the people of Israel and described himself as the owner of a vineyard and Israel as the vineyard. He had chosen a prime location for his grapevines, nurtured the soil and protected the land from harm. But in the end, the crop of grapes was no good. So he asked, “What more could have been done for my vineyard than I have done for it?”

The farmer had done everything right; there was no reason why the crop should not have flourished. But the painful message soon became clear: Israel had failed despite God’s efforts to ensure her success. Though the people kept up elaborate rituals of worship, those were meaningless to God because the people neglected to do what he truly valued: caring for orphans, widows and the poor. As a result, they managed to spoil the harvest that God had nurtured.

God offers this same nurturing care today for your marriage. Even before you met your spouse, God was preparing the soil, removing the stones and building a watchtower. God placed you in a cultivated land, ready to produce good fruit. But in this vineyard, the Farmer doesn’t do all the work; you must also do your part.

More and more Christian couples today are producing bad marital fruit, spoiling their relationship despite God the Farmer’s efforts. Some couples, like the couple mentioned earlier, manage to kill their vine before it even takes hold.

In the end, a marriage will be judged not by the strength of its passion or by its ceremonial promises, but by the fruit it produces. The Farmer is there to weed, water and cultivate. But we must also take practical steps that will help our marriage reflect authentic devotion to each other and a true love for God and his values.

We can choose to forgive quickly and resist resentment. We can serve each other in purposeful ways throughout the day. We can encourage each other with words of love and by praying for each other. We can invite strong Christian couples to mentor us in spiritual growth. We can minister to others in need. By authentically reflecting God’s values in our relationship, we can do our part to nourish our marriage vineyard and produce a harvest of good fruit.

David and Kelli Trujillo

Let’s Talk
  • When we reflect on our life together (how we met, our courtship and our engagement), where do we see God’s guidance, protection and nurturing?
  • If we, as God’s people, are compared to a vineyard, how might we ensure the growth of good fruit within our marriage? What types of fruit do we most want to produce as a couple?
  • What habits or behaviors have we fallen into that could spoil the fruit of our marriage? What steps can we take to stop those damaging patterns?
God offers nurturing care for your marriage.

LHM Devotion - March 3, 2018 - The Stones Cry Out

https://www.lhm.org/dailydevotions/default.asp?date=20180303

Devotions from Lutheran Hour Ministries

"The Stones Cry Out"

Mar. 3, 2018

Read Luke 19:37-40

He answered, "I tell you, if these were silent, the very stones would cry out."
~ Luke 19:40 (ESV)

What a scene -- Jesus surrounded by people, all praising God with a loud voice and crying out, "Blessed is the King who comes in the name of the Lord!" What a celebration! Palm branches and cloaks and the sound of rejoicing -- and Jesus in the middle of it all, just as He ought to be. For once the human race got it right.

But there was one element that didn't belong. A little patch of sour-faced men said to Jesus, "Teacher, rebuke them. Tell them to be quiet!" Why? What did they have against joy?

Most likely their problem was with the reason for that joy: the crowds were rejoicing because God had sent the Messiah, Jesus, the Savior and King of Israel. The Pharisees didn't believe that; they wouldn't even consider that the crowd might be right. Instead, they tried to shut down the celebration. It was undignified. Incorrect. Wrong.

But Jesus wasn't having it. He answered, "If these people shut up, the stones themselves would start shouting!"

It is natural to rejoice in the presence of the Lord. It is right to give Him thanks and praise. As Amos put it, "The Lord God has spoken; who can but prophesy?" (Amos 3:8b) Joy, speech, praise -- these flow naturally when God comes to us. Even the stones would cry out.

Some stones, that is -- the natural stones. The Pharisees, with their unnatural stony hearts, could not join in the praise. The only words they could spit out were "Shut it down!"

There are far too many days when my heart is closer to that of the Pharisees than to that of the disciples. Cranky, grouchy, self-important, unwilling to recognize Christ standing in front of me -- I need help. We all do. And Jesus came to supply that help, to take our stony hearts and transform them into living, loving hearts of flesh that respond to God with joy. Within that very week He would do it, laying down His life for our sake and then rising again to live forever -- making the stones themselves, even us, cry out with joy.

THE PRAYER: Dear Father, thank You with all my heart for Your Son Jesus. Amen.

Devocional del CPTLN de 03 de Marzo de 2018 - LAS PIEDRAS CLAMAN


ALIMENTO DIARIO

"LAS PIEDRAS CLAMAN"

3 de Marzo de 2018

Leer Lucas 19:37-40

Pero Jesús les dijo: "Si éstos [sus discípulos] callaran, las piedras clamarían."
~ Lucas 19:40 (RVC)

¡Qué escena! Jesús rodeado de personas, todos alabando a Dios en voz alta gritando de alegría: "¡Bendito el rey que viene en el nombre del Señor!" ¡Qué fiesta! Palmas y mantos cubriendo el camino y en medio de esa alegría Jesús, así como debe ser. Por un momento, la humanidad hizo bien las cosas.

Pero había algo que estaba fuera de lugar. Un pequeño grupo de hombres le dice a Jesús: "Maestro, ¡reprende a tus discípulos!" (Lucas 19:39a). ¿Por qué? ¿Qué les molestaba de la alegría del momento?

Probablemente era la razón de esa alegría: la multitud estaba alegre porque Dios había enviado al Mesías, a Jesús, el Salvador y Rey de Israel. Los fariseos no lo creían. Ni siquiera se les ocurría pensar que la multitud pudiera estar en lo cierto. Por eso trataron de acabar con la celebración. Era algo indigno, incorrecto y equivocado.

Pero Jesús no lo iba a permitir. Jesús les dijo: "Si éstos callaran, las piedras clamarían" (Lucas 19:39b).

Alegrarse en la presencia del Señor es algo natural. Es justo y saludable que le demos gracias y le adoremos. Como dice el profeta Amós: "Si el Señor habla, ¿quién no profetiza?" (Amós 3:8b). Alegría, expresión, alabanza... todo esto fluye naturalmente cuando Dios viene a nosotros. Aun las piedras clamarían.

Demasiados son los días en los que mi corazón está más cerca del de los fariseos que del de los discípulos: malhumorado, gruñón, vanidoso, poco dispuesto a reconocer a Cristo parado delante de mí. Necesito ayuda. Todos la necesitamos. Y Jesús vino para dárnosla y transformar nuestros corazones de piedra en corazones vivos dispuestos a amar y a responder a Dios con alegría. Esa misma semana Jesús daría su vida y resucitaría, para que nosotros también podamos gritar de alegría.

ORACIÓN: Querido Padre, ayúdame a vivir con alegría por todo lo que tu hijo Jesús ha hecho por mí. Amén.

Quý Giá Trong Mắt Chúa

Đọc: Sáng thế ký 1:26-31 | Đọc Kinh Thánh suốt năm: Dân số ký 28-30, Mác 8:22-38

Thưa anh em yêu dấu, nếu Đức Chúa Trời yêu thương chúng ta như thế, chúng ta cũng phải yêu thương nhau. I Giăng 4:11


Ông tên là David, nhưng hầu hết mọi người gọi ông là “nghệ sĩ đường phố”. Ông đã lớn tuổi, có mái tóc bù xù, thường ngồi chỗ quen thuộc tại những nơi công cộng trong thành phố để biểu diễn âm nhạc phục vụ khách qua đường, với kỹ năng chơi vĩ cầm hết sức đặc biệt. Đổi lại, người nghe thỉnh thoảng sẽ bỏ một đô-la vào hộp đàn mở sẵn, đặt trên lề đường. Khi ấy, ông sẽ mỉm cười, gật đầu cảm ơn rồi tiếp tục chơi nhạc.

Gần đây, khi ông qua đời, tiểu sử của ông đã xuất hiện trên tờ báo địa phương. Bài viết cho biết ông có thể nói nhiều ngôn ngữ, đã tốt nghiệp một trường đại học danh tiếng và từng tranh cử vào thượng viện vài năm trước. Nhiều người đã hết sức ngạc nhiên trước những thành tựu to lớn trong đời ông, vì họ thường đánh giá ông dựa vào vẻ bề ngoài mà thôi.

Kinh Thánh cho biết: “Đức Chúa Trời sáng tạo loài người theo hình ảnh Ngài” (Sáng. 1:27). Điều này cho thấy rằng mỗi chúng ta vốn là những tạo vật có giá trị, dù bề ngoài chúng ta thế nào, thành tích của chúng ta là gì hoặc người khác nghĩ gì về chúng ta. Ngay cả khi chúng ta quay lưng lại với Chúa và sống trong tội lỗi, thì Ngài vẫn quý trọng chúng ta đến nỗi sai Con Một của Ngài đến để chỉ cho chúng ta cách nhận ơn cứu rỗi và được sống đời đời với Ngài.

Chúng ta được Chúa yêu và Ngài cũng yêu quý mọi người xung quanh chúng ta. Nguyện chúng ta biết bày tỏ tình yêu đối với Chúa bằng cách chia sẻ tình yêu của Ngài với người khác.
Lạy Cha Thiên Thượng, cảm ơn Cha vì tình yêu tuyệt vời của Ngài dành cho con. Nguyện người khác sẽ nhìn thấy tình yêu của Ngài qua lời nói và hành động của con hôm nay.
Chúng ta phải chia sẻ tình yêu của Chúa.
