January 13, 2018: SOAP #2963:  Genesis 31-33; Luke 13

Scripture:  Luke (NIV) 13:10 On a Sabbath Jesus was teaching in one of the synagogues,

Observation:    When the Word was being taught and Jesus was present it was not uncommon for something out of the ordinary to happen.   In fact, what was out of the ordinary became common when Jesus was present.

While teaching in the synagogue (Luke 13), Jesus noticed a woman present who needed healing.   Without reading on, we all know that something special happened.

Application:   When I gather with others to hear the Word and the Holy Spirit makes me aware of the presence of Jesus, I should expect something special, something unique, something only God can do.   I should never settle for anything less.

Prayer:     Holy Spirit, build in me an expectation to see manifestations of your presence.    Amen
