    Mark 6:14; Job 14:15-17


    Mark 6:14 King James Version (KJV)
    14 And king Herod heard of him; (for his name was spread abroad:) and he said, That John the Baptist was risen from the dead, and therefore mighty works do shew forth themselves in him.

    Mark 6:14 Contemporary English Version (CEV)
    The Death of John the Baptist

    14 Jesus became so well-known that Herod the ruler heard about him. Some people thought he was John the Baptist, who had come back to life with the power to work miracles.

    These are my thoughts.
    They would rather believe something that never happened then to see Him for who He is as Lord, we need to let people know who He truly is and what He has done for us.

    Job 14:15-17 King James Version (KJV)


    15 Thou shalt call, and I will answer thee: thou wilt have a desire to the work of thine hands.

    16 For now thou numberest my steps: dost thou not watch over my sin?

    17 My transgression is sealed up in a bag, and thou sewest up mine iniquity.


    Job 14:15-17 Good News Translation (GNT)


    15 Then you will call, and I will answer,
     and you will be pleased with me, your creature.
    16 Then you will watch every step I take,
     but you will not keep track of my sins.
    17 You will forgive them and put them away;
     you will wipe out all the wrongs I have done.

    15 God answers us when we cry out to Him as our Father but, this doesn’t mean He answers the way we want Him to but means He always responds, then also does not mean He answers in our time either. We should live to please God. Thru Jesus alone can we truly please the Lord, we could never do this on our own.


    16 God watches us but now we as believers are lead by the Spirit that dwells inside us. We should let Him lead our steps and path.


    17 As Christians we have are sins covered by the blood of Jesus. God forgives us and forgets our sins because of the cross.

    Phil 1:2; Philemon 15-16


    Philippians 1:2 King James Version (KJV)

    2 Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.

    Philippians 1:2 Lexham English Bible (LEB)

    2 Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

    We have grace by the death of Jesus on cross and we have peace because of our relationship with the Lord.  

    Philemon 15-16 King James Version (KJV)

    15 For perhaps he therefore departed for a season, that thou shouldest receive him for ever;
    16 Not now as a servant, but above a servant, a brother beloved, specially to me, but how much more unto thee, both in the flesh, and in the Lord?

    Philemon 15-16 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

    15 Perhaps he therefore departed for a season so that you would receive him forever, 16 not now as a servant, but above a servant; I mean a brother beloved, especially to me, but how much more to you, both in the flesh and also in the Lord.

    15-16 Paul lets him know that his servant leaving was for the best because now he has changed and will never run again once he returns but Paul is asking that he not return just quiet yet because Paul needs his help. This is also a reference to him now being a believer and how they all would be in eternity together, this doesn’t mean he would still be a servant in heaven but means that he now was his brother and that bound wouldn’t ever be broken. They now would have a greater relationship; he would be a better servant now because he now served the Lord first as a fellow believer. He wasn’t free from being a servant now that he was come to Jesus but had more of us a reason to live for the role he was called into. We have more reason when we have Jesus because we are to live for Him.

    Mark 6:13; Job 14:13-14


    Mark 6:13 King James Version (KJV)

    13 And they cast out many devils, and anointed with oil many that were sick, and healed them.

    Mark 6:13 Contemporary English Version (CEV)

    13 They forced out many demons and healed a lot of sick people by putting olive oil on them.

    These are my thoughts.
    This is what the disciples were able to do, we have power to do great things with the Lord. 

    Job 14:13-14 King James Version (KJV)

    13 O that thou wouldest hide me in the grave, that thou wouldest keep me secret, until thy wrath be past, that thou wouldest appoint me a set time, and remember me!
    14 If a man die, shall he live again? all the days of my appointed time will I wait, till my change come.

    Job 14:13-14 Good News Translation (GNT)

    13 I wish you would hide me in the world of the dead;
        let me be hidden until your anger is over,
        and then set a time to remember me.
    14 If a man dies, can he come back to life?
    But I will wait for better times,
        wait till this time of trouble is ended.

    13 Job again states that he wanted to be dead. Job was staring to believe the lies of his friends and believed that this was an attack from God. God allowed the attack but it was from satan. In these times the greatest thing was for your name to be remember for generations to come.

    14 There is life after death thru Jesus but without Jesus there is eternal hell, judgment. Job didn’t know answers to his questions but knew that he wanted a better life then what he was having, many of us do this without every facing the challenge Job did. Thru Jesus we grow thru times of troubles because by Him we get thru it often better. This situation would make Job even better.

    Phil 1:1; Philemon 1:14

    Philippians 1:1 King James Version (KJV)

    1 Paul and Timotheus, the servants of Jesus Christ, to all the saints in Christ Jesus which are at Philippi, with the bishops and deacons:

    Philippians 1:1 Lexham English Bible (LEB)

    1 Paul and Timothy, slaves of Christ Jesus, to all the saints in Christ Jesus who are in Philippi, together with the overseers and deacons.

    These are my thoughts.
    This letter is from Paul but he may with Timothy or sending greetings from Timothy because of him helping in the growth of this church. We belong to Christ when we accept Him as our Lord. 

    Philemon 14 King James Version (KJV)
    14 But without thy mind would I do nothing; that thy benefit should not be as it were of necessity, but willingly.

    Philemon 14 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

    14 Nevertheless, without your consent I would do nothing, because the good that comes of you should not be, as it were, usurped through circumstance, but willing.

    Paul was respecting this man being the master. Although this letter doesn’t justify owning another person it does say that we should respect certain things within culture. We can bring people to the faith by respecting their culture as long as it does not go against scripture, servants here worked to pay off the debt they owed and sometimes we choose to stay rather then go back to life full of debt, they weren’t chosen to be slaves by race. Paul is urging him to let his servant stay with him, this wouldn’t free him from the debt owed unless decided upon, he could have came back later to pay off the debt. We could never pay off the debt for our sin but thankful we can choose to be servants to our Master Jesus.
