Old Testament; Exodus 23:1-24:18
24:3 When Moses went and told the people all the Lord’s words and laws, they responded with one voice, “Everything the Lord has said we will do.”
Kimberly’s thoughts; People give God lip service. Yet, true services are from the heart with determination and follow through.
Prayer; Lord, please help us all give you true service. Thank you for Jesus, because we cannot give you the service you desire, but He did in our place. Through your Holy Spirit, let us each try.
New Testament; Mark 3:31-4:29
34“The he looked at those seated in a circle around him and said, “Here are my mother and my brothers! 35Whoever does God’s will is my brother and sister and mother.”
Kimberly’s thoughts; It truly is family being in fellowship with other believers. The Parable of the sower is in Chapter 4. To be doing God’s word we need to let it root deep inside and keep it nurtured. Having regular times to read His word and fellowshipping with other Christians helps each of us be truly grounded.
22 I will declare your name to my brothers; in the congregation I will praise you.
