SCRIPTURE UNION DAILY GUIDE 2 JANUARY 2023 MONDAY DEVOTIONAL
Read and Meditate on Today’s Daily Guide Devotional for Sunday 2ND January 2023. May the Lord bless you as you study!
TODAY’S TOPIC: ASSEMBLING THE JESUS TEAM
Opening Prayer: Grant me grace dear Lord to apply what you will teach me today as I read this passage.
Scripture: MARK 1:14-28
Question(s) for Reflection
• Q 2: Is there any example for me to follow or not to follow?
OUTLINE FOR TODAY: One of the very first things Jesus Christ did is one of the last which leaders often consider: choosing those who would continue the work after them. In picking His team to fight the devil and all his agents, the choices Jesus Christ made were totally different from what we would expect. He did not go for the learned theologians of the day or their students but to the seaside where fishermen were mending their nets (vs.16-20) and to other venues where the most unlikely were plying their regular trades (ch. 2:14).
This shows us that Jesus Christ is able to call anyone into His service even today, whatever their background and profession. The question is how willing we are to follow the example of His first disciples (vs.18, 20)?
Take note of where Jesus Christ encountered the man with the unclean spirit. He did not go looking for evil spirits to cast out (v.23)! He had gone into the synagogue to worship. Sadly, even though they do not usually manifest in the same way today, people with evil spirits exist in our places of worship too. How do we recognize and deal with them?
Cannot load devotionals at the moment
And so: Pray for the leadership team in your church to be equipped to recognize and to deal appropriately with evil spirits.

Hymn: Praise to the Lord
1 Praise to the Lord,
The Almighty, the King of creation!
O my soul, praise him,
For he is your health and salvation!
Come, all who hear;
Now to his temple draw near,
join me in glad adoration.
2 Praise to the Lord,
Above all things so wondrously reigning;
Sheltering you under his wings,
And so gently sustaining!
Have you not seen all that is needful has been
sent by his gracious ordaining?
3 Praise to the Lord,
Who will prosper your work and defend you;
surely his goodness
And mercy shall daily attend you.
Ponder anew what the Almighty can do,
if with his love he befriends you.
4 Praise to the Lord!
O let all that is in me adore him!
All that has life and breath,
Come now with praises before him.
Let the Amen sound from his people again;
gladly forever adore him.
Offer a prayer of faith in line with Luke 11:9 ‐ 10
9 And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you. 10 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.
