-the awesome power of His personality-I love pondering on how people responded to Him,because it teaches me about HIM.
I need to be FIXED on Him.
“No one has every spoken like this man”.
“He has done all things well”.
“He spoke with authority, and not like the scribes and the pharisees.”
“All eyes on the synagogue looked intently at Him”.
In this passage, it starts with fascination but ends with them trying to throw Him from the cliff.
Indifference, somehow letting Him pass by.Knowing that there is BACON at the PCJ breakfast, in less than an hour, and my mind not being with Him.
to study for love of Him, remembering Him,because it’s what HE wants of me,Even if you’re looking at Greek
to do so with a heart that loves them BECAUSE He loves Him,Because He loves even better than I do.
to rejoice in His presence,Because bacon is one of the signs that God is good.
When I genuflect, especially, I need to know that I am greeting and honouring a PERSON
I need to utter a little prayer of love HE is here!
-rather than a pivot around which my daily awareness of His presence moves.
With eyes fixed on HimWith a heart fixed on HimWith prayer directed to HimWith a body posture, a straight back, worthy of an act reverencing Him who the crowds gazed stupefied before.
