I am very excited about this series and I hope you all will join me each day for the daily lessons that will be presented. I will use this blog to teach a lesson each day from the movie. This will jump start the blog and then I will continue to use it for daily teachings and discipleship. I hope you all will read, view, write and participate in the blog each day. May the Lord Jesus Bless you through each study and may you grow more intimate with Jesus and deeper in your walk with Him. A Case for Christ is definitely about one finding the truth of Jesus Christ as the Messiah, the Savior, but I believe if we look at it more intently it will also provide food to the surrendered soul. Especially when we find ourselves in moments of doubt. Doubting is not always confined to your belief in the existence of Jesus Christ, that He is the Son of God, many times doubt reveals it self to you and i in that we doubt whether Jesus will heal, provide, save our loved one, and the list goes on and on. The truth is we must combat our disbelief with genuine seeking of Jesus Christ through His Word, and pray for help with our unbelief. Before we do that we must get real with ourselves and admit that sometimes we doubt. You see when we act as if there is no doubt, but in realty we are full of doubt, we have a tendency to ask for help with the wrong things. We ask for physical healing when we need spiritual healing. We ask for strength, when we need surrender. We ask to be fixed when first we must be broken. Read the following passage.
Mark 9:14-2914 And when He came to the disciples, He saw a great multitude around them, and scribes disputing with them. 15 Immediately, when they saw Him, all the people were greatly amazed, and running to Him, greeted Him. 16 And He asked the scribes, “What are you discussing with them?”17 Then one of the crowd answered and said, “Teacher, I brought You my son, who has a mute spirit. 18 And wherever it seizes him, it throws him down; he foams at the mouth, gnashes his teeth, and becomes rigid. So I spoke to Your disciples, that they should cast it out, but they could not.”19 He answered him and said, “O faithless generation, how long shall I be with you? How long shall I bear with you? Bring him to Me.” 20 Then they brought him to Him. And when he saw Him, immediately the spirit convulsed him, and he fell on the ground and wallowed, foaming at the mouth.21 So He asked his father, “How long has this been happening to him?”And he said, “From childhood. 22 And often he has thrown him both into the fire and into the water to destroy him. But if You can do anything, have compassion on us and help us.”23 Jesus said to him, “If you can believe,[a] all things are possible to him who believes.”24 Immediately the father of the child cried out and said with tears, “Lord, I believe; help my unbelief!”25 When Jesus saw that the people came running together, He rebuked the unclean spirit, saying to it: “Deaf and dumb spirit, I command you, come out of him and enter him no more!” 26 Then the spirit cried out, convulsed him greatly, and came out of him. And he became as one dead, so that many said, “He is dead.” 27 But Jesus took him by the hand and lifted him up, and he arose.28 And when He had come into the house, His disciples asked Him privately, “Why could we not cast it out?”29 So He said to them, “This kind can come out by nothing but prayer and fasting.”
I want you to focus on one thing today the father cried out, help me with my unbelief. Today write down all the areas of your life where you have doubt and then begin to pray that Jesus will help you with every area of doubt and unbelief. Pray diligently! Answers are awaiting!
