Here are this week’s readings from the gospel of John. Enjoy! Look forward to hearing about your daily briefings…
Finally, it’s here! The very first Mizizi season of the new decade launches this Tuesday (19th) at the Mavuno Dome, starting at 5.30pm. Transport will depart from town at 5.00pm from Studio One on Moi Avenue. If you or anyone you know have not yet experienced Mizizi, you certainly don’t want to miss this!
PS. For the uninitiated, Mizizi is a ten-week course that is designed to help you connect with God, connect with your divine purpose, and connect with vital relationships that will help you achieve that purpose. What a great way to start a new decade! See you there.
In my reading today, I was struck by the fact that many people followed Jesus because of the benefits that came with it, especially after he performed a miracle that fed 5000 people. Their basic approach was ‘what’s in it for me?’ They were more interested in the blessing than in the one who blessed. Jesus’ challenge reversed that. He wanted them to pursue knowing him not because of the physical benefits, but because knowing him in itself was the way to find life. They needed to hunger for God in the same way that they hungered for daily bread.
This is helpful to me as I engage in a season of prayer and fasting. Lord, I confess I often follow after you because of the many blessings that come with it. Help me however, never to confuse the blessing with the one who blesses. You are more important to me than any blessings that you give me. Teach me to hunger and thirst for relationship with you as I hunger for my daily food. AMEN
