THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS


DAILY DEVOTIONS

HI!

I recently asked a friend, "Has your son decided what he wants to be
when he grows up?"
"Yes, he wants to be a garbage collector," my friend replied.

I had to think about that one for a moment!

"That's a rather strange ambition to have for a career."
I finally managed to reply.

"Well," said the boy's father, "he thinks that garbage collectors only
work on Tuesdays!"

2 Sam 15:23
And all the country wept with a loud voice, and all the people passed
over: the king also himself passed over the brook Kidron, and all the
people passed over, toward the way of the wilderness.

John 18:1
When Jesus had spoken these words, he went forth with his disciples
over the brook Cedron, where was a garden, into the which he entered,
and his disciples.

Light from the Word.

When David was running from his rebellious son, Absalom, he stood
on the Jerusalem side of this brook Kidron, and wept loudly.
Little did David know that his suffering was a minute symbol of the
suffering of our Lord.

When Jesus crossed this brook, He was going to the garden to be
arrested, put on mock trial, and crucified.

Crossing this brook is associated with sorrow and suffering.

David, the “man after God’s own heart,” was a king, but he
faced suffering.
Jesus, the Son of God, faced suffering.

God had only one Son without sin.
But God has no sons who are exempt from suffering!

When you face suffering, does your action symbolize the Lord’s
actions?

Sorrows and sufferings are to be avoided if possible.
But, when it is not possible, they are to be ENDURED.

We endure best when we follow the example of our Lord.
PRAY, and STAND!

Love ya!
