Called to Account

Devotions | Saturday, August 11, 2012
I haven’t been making much progress with my weight loss lately, so I prayed (again!) for God’s help. He reminded me (again!) to consider Mark 6:1-6 where unbelief stopped Christ’s ability to do miracles in his home town of Nazareth.
Mark 6:5-6a- Now He could do no mighty work there, except that He laid His hands on a few sick people and healed them. And He marvelled because of their unbelief (NKJV).
Then a TV evangelist preached on the topic. Whew. Finally one of my old devotionals showed up in my Email, apparently because of a reader’s comment. (Except there was no comment)!
I wrote….. “I want to yell at this failing disciple…”Hey, Jude! What are you thinking!!??? Get back on track! It is not too late!”
And I wish someone would yell “Hey, Brenda!” at me, when I am slipping into the muddy path that leads me away from Jesus.
Judas finally saw the light. It wasn’t too late for him to repent….and yet….. Judas continued his journey of self-destruction.”
God grabbed my attention today. I pray He also grabs yours.
Prayer: Lord, Forgive our foolish ways of disobedience. Thank you for pointing out our failures and helping us overcome them. For ever grateful…Amen.
