Breakfast Teaching: Welcome Home: The Reward Of Loyalty with Brady Boyd
I was disappointed with myself yesterday. I got the bills done, and even went outside and played a couple games of Bean Bags with my son Brett and my wife Anita. I set outside and talked with Anita for a good while. It was quite nice. However, I just couldn’t get myself to simply hang the netting around the garden area. A simple task, yet I couldn’t get myself to do such an easy thing. Why? I just don’t understand myself sometimes.
Anita told me I should probably be getting more sleep. I usually get 6 to 6 ½ hours per night. I think she may be right. I got about seven hours last night. I will try to get at least seven hours for the next week and see what happens. Monday I will have to be in bed around 4:30 p.m. to get up at midnight so I can do my before work routine and be at work Tuesday at 6:00 a.m. We shall see what happens.
Luke 5:15 But so much more went there a fame abroad of him: and great multitudes came together to hear, and to be healed by him of their infirmities.
The leper from verses 12-14 had gone to the priest at the local synagogue and offered up the offerings as required by The Law given through Moses as a testimony of what LORD Jesus had done for him. It seems obvious that the chief priest of the synagogue, nor any of the priests, had made a practice of praying for people to be healed, because once this testimony got out “fame” of LORD Jesus healing the leper went not just to the local area, but “abroad” and “great multitudes” came to hear LORD Jesus proclaim the WORD of GOD and to be healed by Him of their infirmities.
Almighty GOD loves us, and wants us healed, whole, and healthy. But think about this for a moment, please. Almighty GOD loves every single one of us. The WORD of His Goodness to one will spread, and others will desire His Goodness also. People will want to know about the GOD WHO IS GOOD to people, and they will also want to experience the Goodness of Almighty GOD for themselves. Almighty GOD has sent each of us to proclaim His Goodness to heal the sick, raise the dead, deliver the captive (cast out devils), and cleanse the lepers (the unclean). Are we doing this? If we were, the fame of the Goodness of Almighty GOD would go abroad and great multitudes would come to hear the Good News of GOD’s Kingdom, and to experience His Goodness for themselves.
LORD GOD, Abba Father, please, help me to proclaim the Good News of Your Holy Kingdom in WORD and in Your Holy Power just as my LORD Jesus did, and commanded me to do. In LORD Jesus precious and holy Name I pray. Amen.
