It’s Not What You Know, But Who You Are With | Season 3, Ep. 12

It’s Not What You Know, But Who You Are With | Season 3, Ep. 12

Watch Episode: 

Daily Scripture Readings: If you’re reading along with us, today’s McCheyne Reading Plan passages are:

Deuteronomy 10
Psalm 98
Isaiah 38
Revelation 8

Take 15-20 minutes to read these chapters, then come back and join me.

Scripture Reading: Genesis 3:8 (ESV) And they heard the sound of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool[a] of the day, and the man and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God among the trees of the garden.

Key Points:

God created the Garden of Eden as a place of perfect harmony and communion with Him
Adam and Eve walked with God in intimacy and trust, not just gaining knowledge
The temptation was to seek knowledge over relationship/intimacy with God
Today, we can feel spiritually dry despite having access to immense biblical knowledge
Our primary calling is to walk intimately with God, not just know about Him
Practical tips for intimacy: daily quiet times, journaling, nature walks, sabbath rest, community

Takeaway: “It’s not about what you know, but who you’re with. The vibrant life we long for is found in intimacy with Jesus, not just knowledge accumulation.”

13 No one who lives on milk alone can know the ins and outs of what it means to be righteous and pursue justice; that’s because he is only a baby. 14 But solid food is for those who have come of age, for those who have learned through practice to distinguish good from evil.

“What Keeps Me from Moving Forward?” – A Devotional | Season 3, Ep. 8

OUR TRUE CALLING IS OFTEN HINDERED NOT BY OBSTACLES, BUT BY A CLEAR PATH TO LESSER GOALS.

Today’s Readings from the Plan: Numbers 14, Psalm 50, Isaiah 3-4, and Hebrews 11

Focus Passage: Philippians 3:12-16

Read the Text, Meditate on it, Pray Through It, & Contemplate the Impact

12 Not that I have already obtained this or am already perfect, but I press on to make it my own, because Christ Jesus has made me his own. 13 Brothers, I do not consider that I have made it my own. But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, 14 I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. 15 Let those of us who are mature think this way, and if in anything you think otherwise, God will reveal that also to you. 16 Only let us hold true to what we have attained.

Focus Passage:‭‭ ‭‭ ‭‭John‬ ‭11‬:‭1‬-‭6‬ ‭ESV‬‬

Read the Text, Meditate on it, Pray Through It, & Contemplate the Impact

”Now a certain man was ill, Lazarus of Bethany, the village of Mary and her sister Martha. It was Mary who anointed the Lord with ointment and wiped his feet with her hair, whose brother Lazarus was ill. So the sisters sent to him, saying, “Lord, he whom you love is ill.” But when Jesus heard it he said, “This illness does not lead to death. It is for the glory of God, so that the Son of God may be glorified through it.” Now Jesus loved Martha and her sister and Lazarus. So, when he heard that Lazarus was ill, he stayed two days longer in the place where he was.“
