Mark 2:1-2 (NIV)
A few days later, when Jesus again entered Capernaum, the people heard that he had come home. They gathered in such large numbers that there was no room left, not even outside the door, and he preached the word to them.
We are following Jesus. We’ve seen a lot already and we are barely into it. We are just back from a brief tour through several surrounding towns where Jesus brought his standard triple threat offense: preaching, teaching and healing. Of course, healing covers a lot of things ranging from inner healing to physical healing to forgiveness and cleansing and demonic deliverance to all sorts of other major and minor fixes to the broken image bearers of God.
But did you pick up on that little phrase in the first verse today?
A few days later, when Jesus again entered Capernaum, the people heard that he had come home.
Almighty God—Father, Son and Holy Spirit—my Lord Jesus Christ, teach me your Word, until I can speak it fluently like language. I am done with my excuses—all of them. I want to be like Jesus, which means I will become fluent in the Word of God and filled by the Spirit of God. I am ready. In Jesus name, Amen.
So where do you rate yourself on your level of fluency with the Word of God?
