NTC Day 17: Mark 5-6, 1 Cor 1-2

We struggle to follow God because Satan deceives us. He convinces us that God is holding out on us, there is something more enjoyable out there and God is preventing us from experiencing it.

Once we experience the grace of Jesus, we find that the opposite is true:

“For in him you have been enriched in every way . . .” – 1 Cor. 1:5

Our lives have improved now and there are even better things to come:

“No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him – “ – 1 Cor. 2:9

Our problem is that we tend to forget or don’t understand. That is one reason that God has sent the Spirit – to help us understand what God has freely given us (see 1 Cor. 2:12). One of His primary jobs is to help us remember what Jesus has taught and done (John 14:26).

Ask the Spirit to help you remember all that God has done for you. How has your life changed since Jesus found you? What has He promised for your future?


“He will keep you strong to the end . . . God . . . is faithful.”
– 1 Cor. 1:8-9
