Re:Verse passage – Matthew 12:9-13 (day two)
Departing from there, He went into their synagogue. vs. 9
As we examine the life and ministry of Jesus one thing we should take note of is how much time he spends with people. His ministry is marked by walking, talking, and eating with people-where they are. It is a reminder to us that much, nay most, of what we are called to do happens outside the walls of our church buildings. However, I love this gem of a verse that is tucked in this miracle story. Jesus worshipped. Jesus took the time to be a part of the regular rhythm of worship that God had instructed Moses so many generations before. Worship honors God. He commands us to worship. He deserves our worship. Worship also equips us to do the things we are called to do in the world. This new year let’s be like Jesus. Let’s worship together and see how God grows our calling.
