Discussion for Mark 12

  • A disciple
    We are Jesus' servants; we love to be His servants! When the Lord sends us anywhere to do something for Him, it is for His business, and for managing His affairs and His possessions. This is what He sends us to do. The expectation is for managing His business wisely; but the evil responses and actions of those to whom He sends us, is because of their own wickedness, and not because of us!
  • A disciple
    "By what authority doest thou these things?" The "Rulers" of the Jews had encircled Jesus, and began again to attack Him; but what do they think who they are, that they can place themselves above God's Anointed and only begotten Son? It's not that they don't know who He is! It is an evil intention! The parable of the Husbandmen speaks to everyone whom God has "let" His Vineyard to manage for Him.

    Verse 30 says we must love Jehovah God with our whole strength. We must ask ourselves what we are expending our energy on.

    Lord God I pray for June and her mother, Angelina, and family. I pray that You would draw them all to Jesus, their Savior, at this tough time in this world. Teach them individually, that Jesus is the only bridge from this world to heaven and that God sent Him to die on the cross to be that bridge. Jesus literally saves us. Confess that He is the only provider of forgiveness and live. Amen

    Lord, I pray for the healing power of Christ Jesus to touch this woman's mom. You said in your word if we believe our faith will make us whole. So I'm believing she will take up her bed and walk out of that hospital healthy and whole if it be Your will. Giving You All the Honor and the highest Praise. Amen, amen, and amen.
