1234 DLC4.0-Devotionals from the Life of Christ 07/22/2018 W. Mark Lanier

Mark continues with Part 4 of Devotionals fromcthe Life of Christ. Mark discusses the message of "truth as it appears in the gospels; specifically in the Book of John, where it appears twenty-five times. Truth, originally in the Hebrew, means "faithfulness", and as it was translated into the Greek it became "truth", also meaning "upright or "not false".

We see that Jesus is the faithfulness, the promise God kept, which was introduced first in the Law with Moses. While the law is how we relate to God, God shows his grace and truth to us through Jesus Christ. Listen as Mark examines several passages in John where Jesus discusses truth.

In John 1:4-5, we're told that in Christ there is life, and that life is a light for all mankind. Listen as Mark discusses that the natural structure of light is to shine, and overcome darkness. When we have darkness in box or a closed room, it can't stay that way once it encounters light. We are encouraged to seek His light more than anything in the world.   0

1240 DCL7.0-Devotionals from the Life of Christ 08/26/2018 Mark Lanier Mark continues Devotions from the Life of Jesus #7. Today’s lesson placed us on the prayer road, specifically what Jesus said about prayer. The first passage was from Mark 1:35 Mark points out that Jesus spoke on His own authority. In a second devotion, we learn how Jesus modeled quiet time with the Father. After a busy day, Jesus rose early and went to a desolate place to pray. In Luke 7:40, we find three layers of discovery: Jesus engages us, the backstory, and faith's road.  Mark moved on to focusing on God in prayer and not ourselves.  Listen to Mark add depth to the Scriptures while pointing out the important signs along the prayer road with Jesus. 1
