John 2 – Verse by Verse

John Pic

In this chapter we see Jesus at a wedding in Cana and in Jerusalem cleansing the temple.  Both of these stories are told to draw out of us a response of complete, committed faith.

Luke 16 – Verse by Verse

How much confidence do we place in wealth or possessions?  Their real value is how we use them to prepare for heaven.  In fact, as we consider the life that is to come, suffering may be worth more than money.

A Prayer Prompted by Mark 10

Dear heavenly Father,

We acknowledge that we are sinful people who live in the midst of a sinful nation. Particularly in the areas of marriage and sexuality we have so distorted your desires for us that there is no way left for us to untie the knots.

Please forgive us, please transform us and please help us to make right whatever we can.

Help us to rely fully on the sacrifice of Jesus to cleanse us of our sin.

Help us to exercise a childlike faith and trust in you.

Like the blind beggar Bartimaeus, we really are helpless and have nothing at all to lose – except perhaps our sin and shame.

Therefore, we submit fully to Jesus as our Savior, Messiah and Lord.

In Christ,

Amen.
