Day Five - On the Move

Friday, November 25th, 2011

Luke 4:42-44 (NIV)

42At daybreak, Jesus went out to a solitary place. The people were looking for him and when they came to where he was, they tried to keep him from leaving them. 43But he said, “I must proclaim the good news of the kingdom of God to the other towns also, because that is why I was sent.” 44And he kept on preaching in the synagogues of Judea.

Reflection

Jesus was always on the move. He would stay in certain places for a little while, but then he had to continue on. Jesus was on the move so that he could encounter more people to proclaim and teach the good news that God had come to be their king, and bring true hope, healing and life. The time had finally come and nothing would detract him from his mission. This was not a brute force conquest, but rather was happening through the power and authority of God himself. People responded in many different ways. Some wanted more healings and supernatural shows, but didn’t really want to have anything to do with Jesus. Others were threatened and opposed him outright. But then there were those who received and responded to Jesus’ powerful teachings about God’s kingdom.

Responding to the Transmission

The kingdom of God has come in Jesus Christ, and His salvation is invading more and more. Will we welcome His kingdom salvation and healing and freedom in our lives, in our generation, among our friends, classmates and co-workers, on our campuses, in our cities? Let’s pray that we would welcome the authority and power of God into our lives more so that we would be living testimonies of God’s healing and transforming work. Let’s also pray that we would follow Christ in greater measure as he calls us to move on our campuses, at our workplaces and in cities, so that God would be worshipped and glorified more and more.
