ThoughtForDay - July 16 []

July 16

Quick Thought:

But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens
will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat;
both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up. Therefore, since
all these things will be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in holy
conduct and godliness. 2 Peter 3:10-11 (NKJ)

Mark 9:14-29
And when they came back to the disciples, they saw a large crowd around them, and
some scribes arguing with them. And immediately, when the entire crowd saw Him,
they were amazed, and began running up to greet Him. And He asked them, "What are
you discussing with them?" And one of the crowd answered Him, "Teacher, I brought
You my son, possessed with a spirit which makes him mute; and whenever it seizes
him, it dashes him to the ground and he foams at the mouth, and grinds his teeth,
and stiffens out. And I told Your disciples to cast it out, and they could not do

And He answered them and said, "O unbelieving generation, how long shall I be with
you? How long shall I put up with you? Bring him to Me!" And they brought the boy
to Him. And when he saw Him, immediately the spirit threw him into a convulsion,
and falling to the ground, he began rolling about and foaming at the mouth. And
He asked his father, "How long has this been happening to him?" And he said, "From
childhood. And it has often thrown him both into the fire and into the water to
destroy him. But if You can do anything, take pity on us and help us!" And Jesus
said to him, " 'If You can!' All things are possible to him who believes." Immediately
the boy's father cried out and began saying, "I do believe; help my unbelief."

And when Jesus saw that a crowd was rapidly gathering, He rebuked the unclean spirit,
saying to it, "You deaf and dumb spirit, I command you, come out of him and do not
enter him again." And after crying out and throwing him into terrible convulsions,
it came out; and the boy became so much like a corpse that most of them said, "He
is dead!" But Jesus took him by the hand and raised him; and he got up.

And when He had come into the house, His disciples began questioning Him privately,
"Why could we not cast it out?" And He said to them, "This kind cannot come out
by anything but prayer." Mark 9:14-29 (NAS)

John 4:1-3
When therefore the Lord knew that the Pharisees had heard that Jesus was making
and baptizing more disciples than John (although Jesus Himself was not baptizing,
but His disciples were), He left Judea, and departed again into Galilee. John 4:1-3
