Walk with Jesus. Run in faith.

Good day! I hope you are filled with joy and wonder as you live in the overflow if God's mercies.

I find it very interesting that there is a call out to the reader right in the middle of he passage. The words "Reader, pay attention!" stand out amongst all that Jesus said. As if He knew that around this time the whole world would be so used to reading material; that there would be a surplus of information; that I could so easily gloss over important messages. Just like these warnings that He issued in the passages for the day. Pay attention, Jesus says. Don't miss the signs.

Don't get so lulled by making a living that you miss out on what will keep you alive.

Ready? Let's jump in.
Mark chapters 12 and 13

Now think about this.

Then Jesus began teaching them with stories... (Mark 12.1). Then a bit later, after one story from Jesus: The religious leaders wanted to arrest Jesus because they realized he was telling the story against them.

It's very interesting how conviction confronts you.

What do you choose to do when you realize the story is about you?

Your mistake is that you don’t know the Scriptures, and you don’t know the power of God.‚Äč (Mark 12.24)

I hope this never becomes our mistake. We have the Scriptures available in many ways. We have Jesus who we can know. Don't miss it: He is a very present display of God's power.

I say to you what I say to everyone: Watch for him! (Mark 13.37)

Do we expect God every day? That expectation of Him—not just the blessings, or the graces, or the end of the world—but the expectation of His very presence in your day. The Master. The Lord. In your day-to-day. This watching for him makes all the difference.
