S MRK 4:11-12 NASB
And He was saying to them, "To you has been given the mystery of the kingdom of God, but those who are outside get everything in parables, so that while seeing , they may see and not perceive, and while hearing , they may hear and not understand , otherwise they might return and be forgiven ."
O - I am reflecting on what a true transformational relationship we have with Jesus. It is not just one of a caring man, who knows us, but one in which He imparts on us mysteries of the Kingdom of God which for many will remain unknown (untill they are called and it is revealed) . This is not something to be prideful of yet, mindful of the fact that kingdom principles that are now clear to us , are not so simply understood by those who do not yet know Christ.
A - The application for me is to first and foremost to give thanks for the honor to be chosen and to know God and His principles. Second is to steward this knowledge well for kingdom purposes, and not personal gain and glorification.
P - Dear heavenly father, thank you for today's lesson, may it be sealed to my heart.
