Disciple: Wow! A week could be spent just studying the gifts chart from yesterday.
Servant: Yes. Take time today to study it more. Which of these gifts is the Holy Spirit is manifesting through your yielded body? Which others would you like to have? Ask God to let the gifts flow through your cleaned-out vessel.
D: In yesterday’s scripture reading, Jesus warned us about being a hypocrite (verse 3).
S: Let’s do what we say. That’s essential with our 12.
D: Jesus gives us some interesting advice in verses 8-12 of the CEV. He says “… none of you should be called a teacher…” or “… father…” or even “… leader… .” Jesus adds that we “…should be the servant of the others.
S: That’s why 12 for Jesus uses the term servant rather than teacher, father or leader.
D: I like that. Jesus says in verse 8, “… all of you are like brothers and sisters.”
S: In today’s scripture, Jesus instructs us to focus on important matters such as, “… justice, mercy and faithfulness. …” (verse 23)
D: And avoid “… greed and selfishness.” (verse 25) Jesus says to, “… First clean the inside of a cup, and then the outside will also be clean.” (verse 26)
S: That’s why inner healing is essential. Have you made an appointment with your Servant for inner healing yet? Clean the inside of your cup.
D: You had a life-changing inner healing over 25 years ago, didn’t you?
S: Yes, it helped me so much that since then I’ve prayed for about 400 people for inner healing. It works!
D: It’s touching to read how much Jesus loved Jerusalem, isn’t it?
S: It is. Jesus called out, “Jerusalem, Jerusalem!…” and said “… I have often wanted to gather your people, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings. But you wouldn’t let me.” (verse 37)
D: Makes you wonder how many times Jesus has wept for our city, doesn’t it?
S: Yes, but 12 for Jesus has the potential to prepare people and cities worldwide for Jesus. Let’s not be hypocrites. Let’s make 12 disciples for Jesus who do likewise 10 times.
