S. O. A. P.
Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
He replied, “Blessed rather are those who hear the word of God and obey it.”
Jesus had been teaching a crowd of onlookers who observed Him cast a demon out of a man who was mute and could now speak. As He was teaching, a woman said to Him, “Blessed is the woman who gave You life,” speaking of Jesus’ mother, Mary. Jesus replied, “Blessed are those rather who hear the word of God and obey it!”
When Jesus cast the mute demon out of the man, some thought He had done it with the power of Satan. Jesus began a deep teaching on how a kingdom divided against itself cannot stand. While He was delivering the Word of God, a random woman, completely void of what was going on, evidently speaks up and says, “I’ll tell you who is blessed. Whoever your mother is, she the blessed person!” This is so like the spirit of the world. Anytime Jesus is setting a matter straight, so people have understanding, the devil will show up with something that is straight out of left field. Jesus set the record straight very quickly by helping the people “Get Back To Basics” when He answered the woman directly. He said, “The really blessed people are those who hear the word of God and obey it!” Never let the real issue become confused in translation; instead, “Get Back To Basics.”
This AM, I’m ready to get back to basics. I understand the devil’s plot against God’s people by confusing the main thing. With Your help today, I will keep the main thing the main thing. Amen
