Weekly Truth

Open Your Bible

Matthew 9:35-36

Scripture is God-breathed and true. When we memorize it, we carry the good news of Jesus with us wherever we go. 

This week we will continue memorizing our key passage by adding the next section of verse 35.

Jesus continued going around to all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the good news of the kingdom, and healing every disease and every sickness. When he saw the crowds, he felt compassion for them, because they were distressed and dejected, like sheep without a shepherd.
—Matthew 9:35–36

    Rhonda I would love to be a part of the sub group! I have been following along and praying for so many of you for so long and would love the chance to interact more!

  11. Mandi D says:

    Rhonda, yes I’m interested in the sub group! I love the idea of being able to comment directly to a person and it not get lost in a sea of comments. And to be able to share pictures of our loved ones that we are all praying for!

    Happy Sunday! Praying for a great week for everybody

  15. Rhonda J. says:

    Hi Beautiful Sisters!
    Hope you all have a good Sunday where ever this finds you. Every single one of you is SO important to God’s kingdom! What, why, how….all the questions you have jumbling around are the Spirit working in you, empowering you, enlivening you to action, to believe! Even if you are a mess right now, that will be your message! Your test- a testimony! The poor in spirit- will inherit the kingdom, and the mourning will be comforted!! What an amazing study this is to tell us all about Jesus! And what he can do for us! What he can do in each one of our lives if only we trust and obey, have faith and believe! He will be back for his church soon, one day, oh glorious day!! Shout it out Hallejujah!!
    Did I get carried away there?? Whoop Whoop! I love how the Word of Jesus is alive and moving and working!

    The idea to have a sub-group is so we can comment directly to people and then also get notifications that someone has replied to our comment so they don’t miss it. Then we could also go into a little more direct conversation from there if we wanted. I could also keep a running prayer list for the week/month to make that easier as well. (I am not sure how sometimes a “reply” is under a comment, I believe it might be that they have the SRT app?) Also, we could be able to share pictures….EX- Victoria E’s baby Isaiah–our Godson! (lol) So…just a thought to get a little closer to some of our fellow SHE”S! @Searching…you would have to get FB!!! We need you! Keep giving a shout out if you would be interested!
    @Aimee I tried to find you on FB, but there are too many with your name! I am under Rhonda Johnson in Fort Meyers.

    Praying for you, Alissa Martin! You are in a place of support with your sisters of Christ and in the arms of our Heavenly Father. We are His children. He orders our steps and is the lamp which lights our paths. Continue to trust and have faith in Him in all things. May God bless you❤️

  18. Michelle Baier says:

    Jesus continued… I think about how badly Jesus was treated when he walked the Earth. And it brings me great comfort to know that he continued, he knew in his heart why he was here, and he didn’t let the way people treated him deter him from his goal. 

  19. Lolly Regan says:

    Lord teach me about your kingdom and your faithfulness and how I can practice faith and trust in every moment ❤️

  21. Mari V says:

    So thankful for the compassion Jesus has on us, on me, especially when I’m feeling distressed. I’ve been watching The Chosen during my wakefulness in the middle of the night or shall we say early morning. I am so grateful as these have been reminders to me that Jesus is with me and he has so much compassion for me, for us. Happy Sunday sweet sisters!

  22. Ramona says:

    Alyssa Martin;
    So beautifully said. I think we all feel that way at certain times in our journey and our season. Continue praying as you posted and pray for others.
    Much love sister in Christ.

  25. Alissa Martin says:

    I relate with the second verse here, like sheep without a shepherd. I am young in my walk with Christ. Though I have grown spiritually so much this past year, I have moments where I really feel lost and confused. I know God is not the author of confusion. I give my distress and confusion to God, I need my shepherd to pull me in and take care of me. I am in need of my father today. I pray for His presence to surround me and fill me up. I pray for His Holy Spirit to guide me, show me what to do. If anyone else can relate, I pray for you too. Our God is taking care of His children, even when it doesn’t always feel like it.

  26. Farrah M says:

    So thankful for Jesus’ love and compassion! ❤️

  27. Tina says:

    Churchmouse- what you wrote today resonates with me. I have been reading scripture almost daily and praying for God to direct me where I should be. I’m a new empty nester and stopped working as a nurse. No what I ask. I find comfort in Gods word and I’d like to feel I am part of something. I know God is good and I’m grateful for all the blessings in my life. I feel that I am displaced from my lifelong church at this time. I’ll keep you in my prayers. This is my first comment. I read them all every day and love seeing all your encouragement.

  28. Dorothy says:

    We may not be able to heal anyone but we CAN AND SHOULD go around spreading the Good News. The GREAT NEWS that our Heavenly Father sent His One and Only Son down to earth where Christ lived with us. Then Jesus with stood ridicule, mocking, and beating; Christ then died for us on the Cross — for our sins because He was sinless. But it doesn’t stop there He rose from death so we could have eternal life. But it still doesn’t end there, after ascending to Heaven, God and Christ sent the Holy Spirit to live in ALL, yes I said ALL, who believe and have faith — believe Christ is the Son of God, He died and rose again, and He died for our sins. Have faith in the Holy Spirit and Christ in EVERYTHING you do. BELIEVE, BELIEVE and have FAITH, AWWW —- which is harder believing or having faith? But then there’s asking for forgiveness for our sins. There’s another hard one, asking for forgiveness, not just from the Lord but from whom ever you hurt. The Lord ALWAYS forgives, but do we always forgive. Well sisters, today spread the GREAT NEWS about God, Christ, and the Holy Spirit and show others how much you believe, your faith and your forgiveness, isn’t that what it is ALL really about.

    Be blessed and know you are loved, forgiven, blessed and most of all cared about sisters.

  29. Searching says:

    Focusing on sharing Christ and showing compassion – love this verse.

    CHURCHMOUSE – so good, you’ve given me a challenge to ponder.

    RHONDA J – great suggestion. I don’t do Facebook but will be praying for the subgroup.

    CAROL M – praying for DIL’s health and for that family’s faith

    DOROTHY – thank you for the testimony of God’s goodness

    AVERY PICONECASSAGNOL – praying for business sale

    AMY DETWEILER – I second what KAREN S said in yesterday’s comments. Praying for wisdom and guidance.

    LOLLY REGAN – praying for you in this process. The first thing that came to mind when I read your comment was that you will be so changed through the discipleship that enjoying travel will be pushed to the back of your mind.

    MOLLY ROHRER – I will be praying for your family and especially for your dad’s state of mind.

  30. Regina Clinton says:

    There is so much comfort in the end of this passage. When we are distressed or dejected, Jesus feels compassion. Thank you, lord for your kindness, grace, and undeserving love.

  38. Melissa Mcronney says:

    Amen ❤️

  39. Samantha M. says:

    May we live in faith by recognizing and praying for God’s miracles in our lives today!

  40. Kelly (NEO) says:

    Let’s join the psalmist in proclaiming:
    “1 Shout with joy to the Lord, all the earth!
    2 Worship the Lord with gladness.
    Come before him, singing with joy.
    3 Acknowledge that the Lord is God!
    He made us, and we are his.
    We are his people, the sheep of his pasture.
    4 Enter his gates with thanksgiving; go into his courts with praise.
    Give thanks to him and praise his name.
    5 For the Lord is good.
    His unfailing love continues forever, and his faithfulness continues to each generation”
    (Psalm 100).
    Enjoy this Lord’s day!

  41. Tasha Enderby says:

    This passage makes me so grateful that the gospel is so widely available to me if only I seek it out. I can walk into a handful of churches in my area, open a app for preaching and teaching, radio, podcast, social media and of course I can simply open my Bible. I will never befall from my shepherd unless I choose to be.

  42. Churchmouse says:

    “Jesus continued going…”

    How often do I withdraw, keep to myself, isolate, observe rather than fully participate? I am by nature an introvert, a contemplative. It takes real effort to go outside my comfort zone. I love reading the verses that mention Jesus going off by Himself to pray and hear from His Father. But I need to also consider the verses that mention His going out teaching and meeting people’s needs. He was singularly focused on being about His Fathers business. God has given me business to do in His name as well. While that certainly includes alone-time, abiding in Him, praying and listening to His still small voice, it also includes using my feet to share the Good News. I need to “continue going” even though it’s uncomfortable and anxiety producing. Inevitably when I have obeyed I’m so glad I did. I’ve started making it my routine upon awakening to ask “Where do You want me to go today, Lord?” Most often it’s just to go about my chores and errands. He provides folks to cross my path. He provides the opportunity for a simple conversation, a word of encouragement, an offer to pray. It is good to go because He is my faithful traveling companion.
