Matthew 9:1-8

Passage Lookup

In this passage, Jesus returns to Capernaum and heals a paralytic. He is demonstrating instead of just speaking words. It’s how you live, give, and love that speak and teach. Those that live out what they say or teach inspire us to be better people. They are channels that lead others to the qualities of Christ.

Point of Grace shares the Bear with their kids...

As I read the passage this morning, it reminds me of a song. Here is the link to a video: How You Live – Point of Grace.  My hope is that it inspires you as you spend this day with God.

How would you answer the question of Jesus in verse 5? Think of ideas to help mesh what you believe with what you do. Pray that you demonstrate to others the power of Christ working through you.

About Mark Shields

Mark volunteers as a member of the media ministry team at his church. A few years ago, he started an on-line Bible study guide called “This Day with God Devotional”. He uses this as a tool in his journey through the Bible. We live in a very busy world with busy schedules so this tool has helped him continue with daily Bible reading and study. Each of the studies are designed to help apply our faith in the work place, at school, or at home. Join him on this journey or check in every so often to read his thoughts.
