Morning Devotions Thought

In the devotions this year we have been learning about places in the Bible. This month we focused on Cana of Galilee, Capernaum, and Corinth. From each of these locations, we can draw valuable lessons to help us grow on our spiritual journey towards the Kingdom. Jesus performs the first recorded miracle in Cana, water to wine, along with healing countless people. Jesus also extends the call of discipleship, applicable in that day and also to us now. Nathaniel demonstrates a powerful lesson of believing without seeing, and his character is described as one "in whom is no guile" in John 1:47. We too must strive to be described with this same characteristic. In Capernaum, the four friends display their faith so it was seen by Jesus. This teaches us that our faith must be visible to all who are around us, always striving to manifest the example Christ gave to us. Finally, we learned about Corinth. The Corinth ecclesia held many beliefs, ultimately tearing the ecclesia apart. This displays the importance of keeping sound doctrine and striving towards a common goal as an ecclesia. An ecclesia has many different people with an array of talents, we must use our talents to strengthen one another in the faith. Romans 15:5-6 says, "Now the God of patience and consolation grant you to be likeminded one toward another according to Christ Jesus: That ye may with one mind and one mouth glorify God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ."
