Friday, November 27th: 2 Chronicles 17-18; Luke 8:1-25

Today's paasage: 2 Chronicles 17-18; Luke 8:1-25

In our NT parable about the seed being sown it's important to note that though we are responsible to sow the seed,  we are not responsible for the ground it falls on or whether or not it takes root.  Emphasizing the reverse,  though we are not responsible for the soil or whether or not the seed takes root,  we are responsible to sow the seed of the Word of God.

The miracle of the calming of the storm hit me as well.  So often we're so used to reading about all the miracles that we hardly even notice them. But putting myself in their position,  in the midst of the raging storm - and suddenly,  at the word of Jesus,  the calm is immediate.  That would have been amazing,  and probably a bit frightening!   What a powerful God we serve!

Tomorrow's passage: 2 Chronicles 19-20; Luke 8:26-56

16 “No one lights a lamp and hides it in a clay jar or puts it under a bed. Instead, they put it on a stand, so that those who come in can see the light.
We need to shine bright in a dark world.

13 "And the ones on the rock are those who, when they hear the word, receive it with joy. But these have no root; they believe for a while, and in time of testing fall away."

We need to keep the excitement of the Word in our lives, and continue to water our roots with reading the Bible. That way we can withstand temptation.
