The Life of Christ - He Went About Doing Good - Thursday, January 18th

The Life of Christ - He Went About Doing Good - Thursday, January 18th

And immediately after they came out of the synagogue, they came into the house of Simon and Andrew, with James and John. Now Simon’s mother-in-law was lying sick with a fever; and immediately they spoke to Jesus about her. And He came to her and raised her up, taking her by the hand, and the fever left her, and she waited on them. Mark 1:29-31

Today's thoughts from today's verses:

In reading today’s Scripture again so I could begin writing today’s Devotional, some other words of Scripture came to mind, “He went about doing good.” I searched and found them in Acts 10:38. In today’s Scripture Jesus is once again at work, but this time there are no crowds and no preaching, just the loving compassion of Jesus as he cares for and meets the needs of Simon’s mother-in-law. It is simply Jesus doing good. Often we get so caught up in how the details of Christ’s life fit into the grand scheme of things and accomplish the larger purposes for which he came, that we miss the simplicity of Jesus just doing good things out of the goodness of his heart. Thinking of the life of Christ as him going about doing good and seeing today’s Scripture as a snapshot of that can be very helpful to us.

When I found Acts 10:38, I read the fuller passage in which it occurs and I have included that passage below. I was struck by how wonderful a review of the life of Christ it is. It is almost as if it were a very condensed version of the gospel of Mark.

Opening his mouth, Peter said: “I most certainly understand now that God is not one to show partiality, but in every nation the man who fears Him and does what is right is welcome to Him. The word which He sent to the sons of Israel, preaching peace through Jesus Christ (He is Lord of all)— you yourselves know the thing which took place throughout all Judea, starting from Galilee, after the baptism which John proclaimed. You know of Jesus of Nazareth, how God anointed Him with the Holy Spirit and with power, and how He went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him. We are witnesses of all the things He did both in the land of the Jews and in Jerusalem. They also put Him to death by hanging Him on a cross. God raised Him up on the third day and granted that He become visible, not to all the people, but to witnesses who were chosen beforehand by God, that is, to us who ate and drank with Him after He arose from the dead. And He ordered us to preach to the people, and solemnly to testify that this is the One who has been appointed by God as Judge of the living and the dead. Of Him all the prophets bear witness that through His name everyone who believes in Him receives forgiveness of sins.” Acts 10:34-43

Spend some time dwelling on all that Christ has done for you and then think of him as just having done good things for you out of the goodness of his heart. Be sure to go about your day today with the expectation that it will be filled with additional good things Jesus will do for you out of the goodness of his heart.

Today's prayer response from today's thoughts:

Lord, you are so good to me. Thank you for providing forgiveness of sins for me and for bringing me to the point of receiving it personally from you. I am clean and whole and new. You continue to be at work in my life pouring out your goodness. It is refreshing to think that you simply enjoy doing good on my behalf. I will go about my day looking for how you will be at work doing good for me at every turn. I love you and worship you. Amen!
