Daily Devotions
 

Welcome to Good Shepherd’s Daily Devotions Page!

During the weeks of Fall, our Daily Devotions are being written by members of Good Shepherd.  Each day one of your brothers or sisters in Christ will be reflecting on faith and life as we all adjust to many changes in our world.  I pray these writings will inspire, comfort and challenge you to grow in faith.  Our dedicated authors have written about their insights, joys and struggles and have been courageous enough to share them with us so that we can also ponder where God is showing up in our own lives. 

As a way to encourage the writers and each other I invite you to share a comment in the comment section at the bottom of the page each day.

Mark 6:1-13

Healing without bounds

…[H]e laid his hands on a few sick people and cured them. v. 5b

Even though Jesus is rejected by his own community and they do not believe what he taught, Jesus still healed those that were sick. The scripture does not even say specifically that the people Jesus healed had any faith. He does not “shake the dust off his feet” as he tells his disciples later in the reading when they experience rejection. Jesus still heals. This says a lot about our God. 

God’s love is so big and God’s care for us so great, that God heals even after being rejected. There have been times in my life when I was filled with unbelief and even rejected God. Yet somehow, the God of the Universe still thought I was worth it and healed me and continues to grant me grace day after day.

God of grace, thank you for healing us with your love even when we struggle to believe. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
