Reading God’s Word: John 5:1-30, Psalm 68:1-8
Meditating on God’s Word: John 5:8 Then Jesus said to him, “Get up! Pick up your mat and walk.”
Memorizing God’s Word: John 4:24 God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in spirit and in truth.
Praying God’s Word: “Lord, thank you for showing mercy to this man. 38 years is a long time to be hurting and broken. He was physically hurt, but so many of us walk around just as broken and are in need of healing. Help us find mercy and to be agents of mercy. Teach us to respond to this man just like Jesus did, with grace and mercy, unlike the Pharisees who were focused on the rules of it being Sabbath. Grow us to be men and women of mercy. Amen.”
