Scripture Union Daily Guide 1 March 2024 || Service In Honour of Jesus

Daily Guide Devotional For Today 1st March 2024 (Friday)

Do You Know That? Daily Guide Reading is published by Scripture Union Press & Books Ltd, an arm of Scripture Union Nigeria. Daily Guide is a true nondenominational, interdenominational Christian Bible engagement/reading aid – meditate on the Bible without denominational colorations. May the Lord bless you as you study!

TODAY’S TOPIC: SERVICE IN HONOUR OF JESUS

Opening Prayer: Help me dear Lord to meet with you as I meditate on your word in Jesus name

SCRIPTURE: JOHN 12:1-11

Question(s) for Reflection
• Q2: Is there any example for me to follow or not to follow?
• Q8: Is there any other Biblical passage that can help me understand this passage better?

Outline For Scripture Union Daily Guide 1 March 2024

Notice the various ways people honoured Jesus at Bethany (vs.1-3). Martha served food at the table and Mary poured a costly perfume on Him. What do we have to give in honour of Jesus? Notice Judas’ ill-motivated response to this prophetic act of worship by Mary (vs.5-6).

In Matthew’s account (Matthew 26:6-13), it was not Judas Iscariot alone, but the disciples were indignant! It is important that we always take our face off the people and focus on what the Lord lays on our hearts to do for His glory. What a comfort we receive every time we tune our ears to the Lord at moments when we are overwhelmed by discouraging words (vs.7-8).

What attracted the crowd to Jesus (vs.9-11)? People crowded around Jesus for varying reasons based on their differing responses to His act of kindness. So many people went to Him because they put their faith in Him after He healed Lazarus. Surprisingly, the high priests who should encourage people to believe in Jesus rather sought ways to kill Lazarus, the clear evidence of His power and authenticity.

Practice/Word Application
So what? Desist from envy!
• Any new insight or reinforcement of what you already know?

Closing Prayer
Help me, Lord, to give you glory in my life every moment!
Offer a prayer of faith in line with Matthew 6:10
“Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.”
