Five Minutes with God

Five Minutes with God is a distinct and exciting approach to daily Bible devotionals. Instead of a lofty goal of going through the entire Bible—or even the New Testament—in one year, Five Minutes with God focuses on shorter passages so that the reader can absorb more of the text and apply it to everyday life. This daily podcast will step you through the Gospel accounts of the life of Christ. Each day’s podcast also ends with a thought for further reflection and a call to prayer. By reading, reflecting, and praying, Five Minutes with God will help you come to know Him, love Him, and follow Him like never before.

HOST: Michael Whitworth

And when Jesus finished these sayings, the crowds were astonished at his teaching, for he was teaching them as one who had authority, and not as their scribes.

Jesus was different. His teaching was different. He wasn't like the scribes, who were the Jewish lawyers of the day. They had devoted their lives to copying the law, and so they knew what it said. The Jews looked to them as experts and authorities. But Jesus was different. The scribes could tell them what the law said, but Jesus told them what it meant. He spoke with an insight into the mind and will of God that was unknown to the scribes. He taught with authority, the type of authority that could only come from God Himself. Jesus still speaks to us, through the Word, with an authority and insight into God’s will that can only come from God. And whether we realize it or not, Jesus’ teaching is still astonishing, because of its timeless relevance and perfect accuracy. Astonishing because of its enduring wisdom and life-changing truth. As we open up the Word of God and immerse ourselves into the teachings of Jesus, may God help us to be impressed, astonished, convinced, and changed by what He teaches us.

What impresses you about the teaching of Jesus?

 

Don’t forget to pray and have a great day!
