Do you hear Jesus speaking to you?

4:09 Mark “Then Jesus said, "Whoever has ears to hear, let them hear."“ (NIV)

Jesus teaches from a boat near the shoreline. The crowds keep pushing closer to hear Him. He talks about the Sower and the Seed… basically where the seed falls and what happens to it. Not all seed produces a crop. But, the good seed that falls on fertile soil produces 30, 60, or even 100 times what took root and that grew. We need to hear His Word and share it with others if we want to see it grow and mature as well. Hear His Word and then take action to share it with others.

It is good to have family!

3:35 Mark “Whoever does God's will is my brother and sister and mother.“ (NIV)

Jesus in healing people with a crowd outside the house where He is staying. When told that His mother and brothers were outside to see Him, Jesus responded with this verse. He is not distancing Himself from them but rather He is being more inclusive to the rest of us. If we trust in God and believe that Jesus died for our sins, then we are part of the family of God. What an amazing gift that is for us. We have close family all over the world!

Pray for unity at home…

3:25 Mark “If a house is divided against itself, that house cannot stand.“ (NIV)

Jesus talked about kingdoms and countries… now He talks to us about home and families. He stresses that we must have a unity in our spirit. He wants us to have peace and harmony in our homes. With such love and lots of prayer, those families can withstand any trials or problems which may come their way. Today, make it a point to say “I love you!” to each of your family members (and extended family, too). Let His love work through you to bring unity of spirit to all whom you love.
