Week 10 Recap: Days 55-60

Weekly Recap of Days 55-60

Devotion by: Cheryl Jackson

This week, we saw Jesus performing several miracles centered around the vital role of faith. Also, Jesus warned the disciples to beware of the deceptive teaching of the Pharisees and Sadducees. Nearer the end of our section this week, we see the pivotal point where Jesus declares that He is the Messiah and He foretells the crucifixion and resurrection.

During this time the amazing events of the transfiguration occurred where Jesus took three His disciples with Him to a mountain where they witnessed Jesus in the presence of Moses and Elijah, and they heard God declare that Jesus is His Son.

We ended the week with another miracle. A man brought his son to the disciples for healing, and they were unable to heal him. Jesus, frustrated by the disciples’ lack of faith, had an amazing exchange with the man. The man cried, “I do believe, but help me overcome my unbelief.” What a truthful and human response that has been part of my prayer life for many years. Our humanness can get in the way of our faith walk, but God understands and makes a way.
