FRIDAY 4TH JUNE, 2021
THEME: LEARN AT JESUS’ FEET
PASSAGE: ACTS 4:13-22
MEMORY VERSE: Acts 4:13 “Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John and perceived that they were uneducated and untrained men, they marvelled, and they realized that they had been with Jesus.”
HYMN: MHB 309 (18.104.22.168D.) – BREAK Thou the bread of life, O Lord to me.
Peter and John spoke with so much boldness at their trial that the Sanhedrin members were astonished because they knew that the two disciples were uneducated and untrained.
Certainly, they were uneducated in one sense. Like Jesus, they had no formal Rabbinic education according to the standards of their time. Yet, they were educated in two more important ways; they knew the Scriptures as they spent three years learning at Jesus’ feet and they were being schooled by the Holy Spirit.
Today, we are so busy trying to conquer the world that we don’t make out time for important things like sitting at the feet of Jesus. As Jesus told Martha, “Martha, Martha, you are worried and troubled about many things. But one thing is needed, and Mary has chosen that good part, which will not be taken away from her,” (Luke 10:41-42).
As Christians, we should be happy to open our Bibles and absorb as much as we can from the Lord on daily basis. This is because the more we know about Him, the more we become like Him.
If we have the Holy Bible at our disposal, we also have the same opportunity the disciples had. By opening the Bible and reading the words Jesus spoke, we place ourselves at His feet, not just in theory but in reality. As we pray for Him to send us guidance and understanding through the Holy Spirit, and we open our Bibles, He will faithfully come to us and teach us. It is very sad that many so-called Christians find it difficult to study the Bible or even go through the “Daily Reflections.”The Word of God is Truth and a Light to our path.
PRAYER: Lord, fill me with the Holy Spirit and give me the same courage that Peter and John had to proclaim Jesus at whatever cost and opposition. Amen.
