THE SERET PLACE: A PLACE OF UNDERSTANDING

image

LISTEN TO AUDIO VERSION

Mark 7:17-19

After he had left the crowd and entered the house, his disciples asked him about this parable. 18 "Are you so dull?" he asked. "Don't you see that nothing that enters a man from the outside can make him 'unclean'? 1

NIV

We see that Jesus taught the people using parables most of the time; as a result they could not understand most of what he was saying.

This is the case for many Christians today; we go to church and we read our bibles but we have no real understanding of what we read or hear let alone how to apply them to our personal lives, and as a result we live in ignorance and bondage.

if u read the earlier verses of this passage, you'll see that when Jesus told the people this very parable, they were all lacking understanding; including the disciples. But the only reason the disciples got a better understanding was because they followed him out of the crowd, they were curious enough to ask further and so they understood better.

This applies to us as well; until we are ready to follow Jesus out of the crowd (churches or religiously bible reading) we will never truly understand what the word means or how much it affects our life.

Go into today with a desire to enter the secret place and find understanding. There is protecting and everything you need in the secret place (see Psalm 91)

Prayer: Dear Heavenly father, I thank you for this day. I pray you give me grace to dwell in your secret place at all times. In Jesus name I pray. Amen
