177- Be Like Jesus: Do Good and Heal the Sick
December 10, 1985 – 6am
Mark 2:23-3:5 Walk in the Spirit and do good.
3:10 The people saw Him heal others before their eyes—“they all pressed about Him in order to touch Him and be healed.”
3:12 Jesus must have been frustrated by the disobedience of the unclean spirits revealing His identity.
3:13-14 He chose 12 to teach them how to preach and cast out demons
3:25 He doesn’t not want us to be “a house divided against itself.”
3:27 He wants the strong man bound.
3:35 He didn’t so much deny his mother and brother, but took everyone else in who loved and Him and obeyed God.
4:20 Be good ground for the Word, accept it and let it bear fruit.
Don’t be distracted by affliction or by the worries of the world or the luring of deceitful riches.
4:39 He wants us not to be intimidated by the elements. To trust Him.
Later: Mary, from next door, and I went to get the Christmas tree! They are not living in the apartment but are salvaging what they can from the ashes. She was happy to purchase our tree and the boys were ecstatic.
Sandra came to make a Christmas craft. The boys like her a lot and they had fun sitting at our restaurant booth kitchen table coloring and cutting and gluing. Tomorrow we will go to Jackie’s and make popcorn balls. Next week we’ll go to my parent’s for the holidays.
