Weekend Word: Left

Friday, March 23, 2012

{Welcome to the weekend! I've chosen a word from my Bible's concordance, and am sharing a few of the related verses. I hope you will consider these verses over the weekend, and perhaps spend some time in the Word finding others. If you don't have a Bible handy, here is a great online version. Till Monday . . . }



Left

Every living thing on the face of the earth was wiped out; people and animals and the creatures that move along the ground and the birds were wiped from the earth. Only Noah was left, and those with him in the ark. Genesis 7:23

~~~

As Jesus was walking beside the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and his brother Andrew casting a net into the lake, for they were fishermen. "Come, follow me," Jesus said, "and I will send you out to fish for people." At once they left their nets and followed him. Mark 1:16-18

~~~

The Peter spoke up, "We have left everything to follow you!"

"Truly I tell you," Jesus replied, "no one who has left home or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or fields for me and the gospel will fail to receive a hundred times as much in the present age: homes, brothers, sisters, mothers, children and fields - along with persecutions - and in the age to come eternal life. But many who are first will be last, and the last first." Mark 10:28-30

  3. What will I need to leave in order to follow Him? That's what I thought of when I read this. So nice to meet you for a brief moment and a photo.  Meeting Ann in person was such a joy for me. I saw your photo there in the side bar. Mine didn't turn out great but the memories are imprinted for good. Hope you stayed dry today!

  4. Just leave it, huh? I'm a visual person, and this photo brings the idea of "left" to life for me. I hang on to stuff that really just needs to be left alone in the mud and completely forgotten. Thanks for this.

  6. I really like Mark 1:16-18...it took such amazing faith for those disciples to follow Jesus and leave the lives they knew....just like it takes amazing faith for any of us to be followers of Christ and leave our old selves behind!

  18. It has been about 30 years since I had a little boy leaving cars laying in the sand.  Brought back some memories.  Great photo to illustrate the scriptures you shared.
