A CALLING THAT CHANGED MY LIFE

Devotional for Wednesday March 30, 2022

Morning Mark 2:13-17

Noon Psalm 15

Evening Luke 5:1-11


One afternoon, I was at the beach, together with those so-called friends with whom I used to hang out. The weather was good and there were drinks, girls, the common things in the summertime, but something was different. Like lightening these words came to my mind, "What are you doing here?" I looked around and everything that seemed good turned confusing and undesirable. Without hesitating a second longer, I exclaimed, "I'm leaving!" They all looked at me and asked: “What's wrong with you, are you crazy? We've just arrived!" But in my mind, there was only one thought: “Run away! Get away!" Without explaining my behavior, I walked away, and as I walked, he said to me: "What are you doing?" My footsteps kept leaving footprints until I reached my home. I spent three days thinking that I was going crazy, I doubted my ability to react. I questioned a lot what I should do and how I wanted to continue. The Lord filled my wife with words of blessings, and she made me understand what was happening in my life: “I was being transformed!” I understood that I had been sailing aimlessly and that, screaming, my soul was looking for a refuge. I understood that my life no longer walked without meaning but was going in pursuit of the paradise that my Redeemer had prepared for me.

Morning Mark 2:13-17

13 And he went forth again by the sea side; and all the multitude resorted unto him, and he taught them.

14 And as he passed by, he saw Levi the son of Alphæus sitting at the receipt of custom, and said unto him, Follow me. And he arose and followed him.

15 And it came to pass, that, as Jesus sat at meat in his house, many publicans and sinners sat also together with Jesus and his disciples: for there were many, and they followed him.

16 And when the scribes and Pharisees saw him eat with publicans and sinners, they said unto his disciples, How is it that he eateth and drinketh with publicans and sinners?

17 When Jesus heard it, he saith unto them, They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.



Noon Psalm 15

1 Lord, who shall abide in thy tabernacle? who shall dwell in thy holy hill?

2 He that walketh uprightly, and worketh righteousness, and speaketh the truth in his heart.

3 He that backbiteth not with his tongue, nor doeth evil to his neighbour, nor taketh up a reproach against his neighbour.

4 In whose eyes a vile person is contemned; but he honoureth them that fear the LORD. He that sweareth to his own hurt, and changeth not.

5 He that putteth not out his money to usury, nor taketh reward against the innocent. He that doeth these things shall never be moved.



Evening Luke 5:1-11

1 And it came to pass, that, as the people pressed upon him to hear the word of God, he stood by the lake of Gennesaret,

2 And saw two ships standing by the lake: but the fishermen were gone out of them, and were washing their nets.

3 And he entered into one of the ships, which was Simon's, and prayed him that he would thrust out a little from the land. And he sat down, and taught the people out of the ship.

4 Now when he had left speaking, he said unto Simon, Launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught.

5 And Simon answering said unto him, Master, we have toiled all the night, and have taken nothing: nevertheless at thy word I will let down the net.

6 And when they had this done, they inclosed a great multitude of fishes: and their net brake.

7 And they beckoned unto their partners, which were in the other ship, that they should come and help them. And they came, and filled both the ships, so that they began to sink.

8 When Simon Peter saw it, he fell down at Jesus' knees, saying, Depart from me; for I am a sinful man, O Lord.

9 For he was astonished, and all that were with him, at the draught of the fishes which they had taken:

10 And so was also James, and John, the sons of Zebedee, which were partners with Simon. And Jesus said unto Simon, Fear not; from henceforth thou shalt catch men.

11 And when they had brought their ships to land, they forsook all, and followed him.

 

Prayer Guide: [Chile-El Bosque] and [Venezuela-Machiquez]

March's challenge: Do everything possible so that your life can be a visible testimony to all men as Christians living in the likeness of Christ. Everyday, praise your Creator. Keep a constant praise on your lips. Listen to Christian praise and worship music with your family. Go to Church, not only to be a spectator, but a worshiper. Worship as you pray, worship as you read the Bible, worship in your illness, always worship.


Annual Bible reading: 2 Samuel 24, 1 Kings 1, 2
