In light of desires being expressed to have the Bible devotionals separate from the Ask about the Bible thread, I humbly propose starting this new thread for the devotionals and for comments on them.

I propose keeping the Ask about the Bible thread open for all other Bible-related matters.

Please let me know any comments you might have about this.

I'll post today's devotional shortly. I first have to verify that it's my turn.

TODAY'S DEVOTIONAL

I wanted to start off with the foundation of law in our society, the Ten Commandments. Remember that when these were given, Moses was alone on Mount Sinai, and the Israelites were massed at the bottom of the mount, forbidden from setting foot on it under pain of death. They all heard the voice of God speaking the commandments. Can you imagine such a thing happening today?

Here they are (BTW, they are also found in Deuteronomy chapter 5):

Exodus 20 (New International Version)

The Ten Commandments
1 And God spoke all these words:

2 "I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery.

3 "You shall have no other gods before me.

4 "You shall not make for yourself an idol in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below.

5 You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me,

6 but showing love to a thousand {generations} of those who love me and keep my commandments.

7 "You shall not misuse the name of the LORD your God, for the LORD will not hold anyone guiltless who misuses his name.

8 "Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy.

9 Six days you shall labor and do all your work,

10 but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the LORD your God. On it you shall not do any work, neither you, nor your son or daughter, nor your manservant or maidservant, nor your animals, nor the alien within your gates.

11 For in six days the LORD made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but he rested on the seventh day. Therefore the LORD blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy.

12 "Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the LORD your God is giving you.

13 "You shall not murder.

14 "You shall not commit adultery.

15 "You shall not steal.

16 "You shall not give false testimony against your neighbor.

17 "You shall not covet your neighbor's house. You shall not covet your neighbor's wife, or his manservant or maidservant, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor."

BTW, notice how God prefaces the giving of the commandments (v 2). He reminds them that he is God, and led them out of Egypt and out of slavery, with a "mighty hand" and a "stretched out arm" (Deuteronomy 4:34, 5:15). That would give you a new respect for the commandments, if you didn't have it already.

TODAY'S DEVOTIONAL

Luke 3:1-2:

1Now in the fifteenth year of the reign of Tiberius Caesar, Pontius Pilate being governor of Judaea, and Herod being tetrarch of Galilee, and his brother Philip tetrarch of Ituraea and of the region of Trachonitis, and Lysanias the tetrarch of Abilene,

2Annas and Caiaphas being the high priests, the word of God came unto John the son of Zacharias in the wilderness.

Notice that God chooses whom he will to work through, those of no special standing in this world, those who might not have any material wealth or influence. We choose our rulers, or they are thrust upon us, to fulfill our own or their own purposes. God chooses those who can best help fulfill his own purposes.

TODAY'S DEVOTIONAL

John 8:2-11

2And early in the morning he came again into the temple, and all the people came unto him; and he sat down, and taught them.

NOTICE JESUS WAS DOING HIS OWN THING, TEACHING PEOPLE

3And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst,

THEY BREAK IN ON HIS LESSON; THEY "CRASH THE PARTY" SO TO SPEAK

4They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act.

5Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou?

6This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not.

THE LAW WAS CLEAR: ADULTERERS SHOULD BE STONED. BUT THE ROMANS FORBAD THE JEWS TO PERFORM CAPITAL PUNISHMENT. IF HE SPOKE FOR STONING, HE'D BREAK ROMAN LAW AND COULD BE EXECUTED; IF HE SPOKE AGAINST IT, HE'D INFLAME THE JEWS AND THEY MIGHT STONE HIM.

ALSO NOTICE HE DIDN'T IMMEDIATELY ANSWER THEM. HE IGNORED THEM. YOU DON'T HAVE TO ANSWER PEOPLE'S QUESTIONS.

7So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.

IN OTHER WORDS, IF THEY WERE SO SURE THEY WERE RIGHT, WHY DIDN'T THEY GO OUT AND STONE HER? MAYBE THIS WHOLE INCIDENT WAS A SETUP, AND THE WOMAN REALLY DIDN'T COMMIT ADULTERY BUT WAS INVOLVED IN THEIR TRAP TO TRY TO CATCH HIM.

8And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground.

JESUS WENT BACK TO IGNORING THEM.

9And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst.

10When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee?

11She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.

IT DOESN'T SAY THAT JESUS FORGAVE HER, JUST THAT HE DIDN'T CONDEMN HER. HE COULD NOT HAVE CONDEMNED HER UNDER JEWISH LAW, TO WHICH HE WAS STILL BOUND AT THIS TIME -- HE HADN'T YET FULFILLED THE LAW. HE DIDN'T WITNESS THE ADULTEROUS ACT HIMSELF.

HAVE YOU EVER NOTICED THAT JESUS ALWAYS SENT PEOPLE AWAY AFTER HEALING THEM? HE WANTED THEM TO BE LIVING LIFE AND GOING ABOUT THEIR PROPER BUSINESS. HE DIDN'T WANT THEM TO BECOME TOO DEPENDENT ON HIM.

Anybody else's thoughts are welcome on this or any other Bible-related issue.

John 4:1-26 and 39-42

Jesus Talks With a Samaritan Woman

1The Pharisees heard that Jesus was gaining and baptizing more disciples than John, 2although in fact it was not Jesus who baptized, but his disciples. 3When the Lord learned of this, he left Judea and went back once more to Galilee.

4Now he had to go through Samaria. 5So he came to a town in Samaria called Sychar, near the plot of ground Jacob had given to his son Joseph. 6Jacob's well was there, and Jesus, tired as he was from the journey, sat down by the well. It was about the sixth hour.

7When a Samaritan woman came to draw water, Jesus said to her, "Will you give me a drink?" 8(His disciples had gone into the town to buy food.)

9The Samaritan woman said to him, "You are a Jew and I am a Samaritan woman. How can you ask me for a drink?" (For Jews do not associate with Samaritans.[a])

10Jesus answered her, "If you knew the gift of God and who it is that asks you for a drink, you would have asked him and he would have given you living water."

11"Sir," the woman said, "you have nothing to draw with and the well is deep. Where can you get this living water? 12Are you greater than our father Jacob, who gave us the well and drank from it himself, as did also his sons and his flocks and herds?"

13Jesus answered, "Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, 14but whoever drinks the water I give him will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life."

15The woman said to him, "Sir, give me this water so that I won't get thirsty and have to keep coming here to draw water."

16He told her, "Go, call your husband and come back."

17"I have no husband," she replied.

Jesus said to her, "You are right when you say you have no husband. 18The fact is, you have had five husbands, and the man you now have is not your husband. What you have just said is quite true."

19"Sir," the woman said, "I can see that you are a prophet. 20Our fathers worshiped on this mountain, but you Jews claim that the place where we must worship is in Jerusalem."

21Jesus declared, "Believe me, woman, a time is coming when you will worship the Father neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem. 22You Samaritans worship what you do not know; we worship what we do know, for salvation is from the Jews. 23Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. 24God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in spirit and in truth."

25The woman said, "I know that Messiah" (called Christ) "is coming. When he comes, he will explain everything to us."

26Then Jesus declared, "I who speak to you am he."

Many Samaritans Believe

39Many of the Samaritans from that town believed in him because of the woman's testimony, "He told me everything I ever did." 40So when the Samaritans came to him, they urged him to stay with them, and he stayed two days. 41And because of his words many more became believers.

42They said to the woman, "We no longer believe just because of what you said; now we have heard for ourselves, and we know that this man really is the Savior of the world."

JOHN 4:16-18 says..... He told her, "Go, call your husband and come back."
“I have no husband," she replied. Jesus said to her, "You are right when you say you have no husband. The fact is, you have had five husbands, and the man you now have is not your husband. What you have just said is quite true."

She came to the well in the heat of the day, most likely to avoid the crowds of women who came to get their water in the cool of the morning. She was a social outcast, and she tried to avoid people as much as possible. One day, however, she could not avoid Man who would not let her avoid her past!

Jesus sat at the well as she approached. Normally men did not speak to women in public. Jewish men did not speak to Samaritan men, let alone Samaritan women. Jewish men would have nothing to do with a woman known to be living in sin. Yet Jesus broke all the barriers to speak to this woman about eternal life.

Jesus dug down to this woman's heart and brought her sin into the noonday sun. She had been married five times and was currently living with a man who was not her husband. She had experienced love and loss, and it seem she had turned away from marriage completely, preferring to live in sin. But Jesus taught her about Himself, and how His living water could change her life.

Divorce is not an unforgivable sin. As painful as divorce is for all involved, and as heartbreaking as divorce is for those who face it without wanting it. God can touch broken hearts and lives and make them whole again. When possible, couples should seek every option they can to avoid divorce. At times, however, the unthinkable occurs. God is there to help us pick up the pieces. He revealed Himself to this sinful and heartbroken woman at the well, and He does the same for those today who seek Him out of their brokenness. He can put together the pieces of our lives and make us whole again.

I agree with your last sentence. Nobody can be saved in their sins, only from them.

"Go and sin no more" doesn't, however, say she was forgiven necessarily. Perhaps, "go and sin no more" and you will be forgiven, because you haven't yet repented. Maybe not true, but another way of looking at it.

mamac,

I like the story of the woman and the well. I'm glad you posted it. I hadn't considered that the woman was likely a social outcast.

Mamac

"10Jesus answered her, "If you knew the gift of God and who it is that asks you for a drink, you would have asked him and he would have given you living water."

Jesus is the living water. I think if we stay on the straight and narrow we would never be thirsty.

The word of God is the living water.
We have to stay in the word if you know what I meen.

It is so surprising to see that this women did not even reconised Jesus.
So this for me looks like a man(Jesus) that has the gift of God - The women did not see the Gift of God.
'11"Sir," the woman said, "you have nothing to draw with and the well is deep"

Still she does not know whom she is talking to and calls Jesus "Sir"

14but whoever drinks the water I give him will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life."

Look how awesome this is. The water I give him will become IN HIM a spring of water welling up to ETERNAL life. WOW

I think if we cannot obtain from this living water on a daily basis this story meen nothing to us today. Nice history, but I do believe that the word of God is the living water so this makes sense for me TODAY.

"23Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. 24God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in spirit and in truth."

I believe we have to worship God in truth and in spirit. Here it says God is spirit.

"25The woman said, "I know that Messiah" (called Christ) "is coming. When he comes, he will explain everything to us."

WOW, Look at this. The women still does not know who is talking to her. She still believes in a Christ to come while Jesus is standing right next to her.
I do not believe Christ has still to come, for me he has come. He is part of my daily life.

I believe before we get to know God he is still to come for us.

"39Many of the Samaritans from that town believed in him because of the woman's testimony, "He told me everything I ever did." 40So when the Samaritans came to him, they urged him to stay with them, and he stayed two days. 41And because of his words many more became believers. "

Here we can clearly see that throught the word of God the Samaritans became believers, because God is a word.

Thanks for this excellent devotional Mamac

This is a POWERFUL devotional MamaC.

I have learned from and enjoyed your comments very much Seek and Garfield.

What's reflected in today's devotional is just another reason I'm in love with the Character of Jesus.

I love that Jesus is not a let's jump on the bandwagon kind of a guy...publicly talking to a woman who was from Samaria was a double whammy in his culture-yet, he did.

I love the fact that Jesus had a heart for those his society cast aside: Those afflicted with leaprocy, posessed with deamons, stricken with blindness...despised Samaritans.

There were so many approaches a Jewish male could have taken with a Samaritan woman...His was loaded with mercy and truth. His wisdom had a way (then and now) of calling one to examine their own hearts and motives...I love that about him.

A preacher I respect delivered a sermon on these very scriptures. He closed with what the woman very well may have proclaimed as she ran into her city:

I met a MAN from Galilee...
IF you trust him, he will set you free!

Again, this was a beautiful devotional...Thanks!

MARTHA: WORRIED ABOUT MANY THINGS
(LUKE 10:38-42)

“”As Jesus and his disciples were on their way, he came to a village where a woman named Martha opened her home to him. She had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord's feet listening to what he said. But Martha was distracted by all the preparations that had to be made. She came to him and asked, "Lord, don't you care that my sister has left me to do the work by myself? Tell her to help me!"

“Martha, Martha," the Lord answered, "you are worried and upset about many things, but only one thing is needed. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her."””

Many people bristle at the criticism Jesus leveled against Martha. After all, if everyone was like Mary, we reason, nobody would have a decent meal or a clean house! But there was more to this story than just Martha's desire to feed her guests. Jesus, who knows all, looked deep inside Martha to deal with a problem that could eventually cause her to be ineffective for Him-the problem of worry.

Martha apparently loved entertaining and so probably was good at it. When Jesus arrived in Bethany, Martha invited Him to her home. Martha had a sister named Mary, and a brother named Lazarus (whom Jesus would later raise from the dead). As Martha busied herself with the dinner (most likely feeding Jesus meant feeding His twelve disciples as well), Mary sat at Jesus' feet and listened to Him teach. Martha needed help, and so asked Jesus to ask Mary to get up and help her. But Jesus explained that Mary had "chosen that good part" and He would not take it away from her.

Jesus was not condemning Martha for caring about preparing a good meal, nor was He showing a lack of appreciation for her hard work. Martha's efficiency, however, seems to have been fueled by too much concern about appearances or nervous activity. She had become impatient and critical. Jesus wanted to teach her about setting priorities and setting aside worries. Martha obviously had the ability to be hospitable and would do it well no matter how much (or how little) she worried about it. Jesus advised her to set aside the worry and enjoy her guest -- namely Himself -- for He had much to teach her.

Worry never accomplishes anything -- except to make us ill or ineffective. When we find ourselves worrying we need to change our perspective and priorities, and then, most of all, we need to pray for faith in God's provision. God will shoulder the worry and give us His peace. Then we can focus on "that good part" that Christ promises will never be taken away.

WHAT ME WORRY???
(LUKE 12:22-31)

“”In addition, some of our women amazed us. They went to the tomb early this morning but didn't find his body. They came and told us that they had seen a vision of angels, who said he was alive. Then some of our companions went to the tomb and found it just as the women had said, but him they did not see."

He said to them, "How foolish you are, and how slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken! Did not the Christ have to suffer these things and then enter his glory?" And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he explained to them what was said in all the Scriptures concerning himself.

As they approached the village to which they were going, Jesus acted as if he were going farther. But they urged him strongly, "Stay with us, for it is nearly evening; the day is almost over." So he went in to stay with them.

When he was at the table with them, he took bread, gave thanks, broke it and began to give it to them. Then their eyes were opened and they recognized him, and he disappeared from their sight.””

Worry can be a time-consuming, almost obsessive, behavior. After all, every day brings new things to worry about! Worrying about every situation in life – whether big or small – will only drive us to distraction. Not one problem is ever solved by worrying about it. In fact, many problems get worse because worry is immobilizing, thus, no action is being taken to try to work through the dilemma. Worry can thwart the work of the kingdom.

Jesus has the perfect solution for worry. Instead of worrying, He invites us to put our faith and trust in God’s provision and care. This can free us from the anxiety that is caused by worry. This total trust doesn’t mean that we should not have goals, plans, investments, and so on. It does mean, however, that for everything we should trust in God, putting Him first in our lives.

Thanks for the devotionals and I hope you are feeling better

Matthew 6 verse 26 - 27

26 Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? 27 Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?

Ephesians 6

12] For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
[13] Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

THE PARABLE OF THE PERSISTENT WIDOW

LUKE 18:1-8 says....

Then Jesus told his disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up. He said: "In a certain town there was a judge who neither feared God nor cared about men. And there was a widow in that town who kept coming to him with the plea, Grant me justice against my adversary.

"For some time he refused. But finally he said to himself, 'Even though I don't fear God or care about men, yet because this widow keeps bothering me, I will see that she gets justice, so that she won't eventually wear me out with her coming!"

And the Lord said, "Listen to what the unjust judge says. And will not God bring about justice for his chosen ones, who cry out to him day and night? Will he keep putting them off? I tell you, he will see that they get justice, and quickly. However, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on the earth?"

I wanted to add a bit more to the devotional....

PSALM 62:5-8

Find rest, O my soul, in God alone; my hope comes from him. He alone is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will not be shaken.

My salvation and my honor depend on
God; he is my mighty rock, my refuge. Trust in him at all times, O people; pour out your hearts to him, for God is our refuge.

ROMANS 7:15-20

I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do—this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.

So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God's law; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God—through Jesus Christ our Lord!

So then, I myself in my mind am a slave to God's law, but in the sinful nature a slave to the law of sin.

Garfield,

Those are great words to live by, thanks for posting them! It's so hard to remember them sometimes, but how true they are.

MamaC, thanks for another great devotional. Paul's words are usually a tremendous comfort for me.

Hi, y'all!

It's uncanny. I often feel so inspired in my head -- full of light, knowledge, and hope while I pray or meditate or study the scriptures. And then when I try to act on these feelings, I develop mental paralysis and I forget everything I was thinking.

I think Paul was sdescribing the same phenomenon.

Thanks, mamac, for posting that!
