New Year, New Mind
Are you looking to get more out of your time studying the Bible? Or maybe you're ready to finally start building a consistent, daily quiet time with the Lord? If that sounds like you, then Nicole would like to personally invite you to join her Help! My Bible is Alive FREE 30-Day Challenge, which kicks off on February 1st. To sign up, head over to https://nicoleunice.com/bible Nicole’s book 'Help! My Bible Is Alive' is available here. In This Episode: The work of a new heart is done in Christ, but we are still participants in that work. Every day, we have the choice: will we continue to put off the old self, and put on the old self? In this episode, Nicole looks at what it means for us to take our thoughts captive and hold them up to the truth of God’s Word. This Week’s Key Verses: Ephesians 4:22-24: “You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; to be made new in the attitude of your minds; and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.” 2 Corinthians 10:5: “We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.” Lamentations 3:22-23: “The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.” Follow Nicole: Her Site | Facebook | Instagram Episode Image Credit: Getty/nadia_bormotova

“You Are the Messiah”
Scripture Reading: Mark 8:27-31 “What about you?” he asked. “Who do you say I am?” Mark 8:29 Jesus’ question is kind of like a midterm exam, when a test is given halfway through the course to see how far the students have come. After asking his disciples what they have been hearing from other people about who he is, Jesus gets to the real question: “Who do you say I am?” Peter blurts out, “You are the Messiah,” and he is gloriously correct. This is the first time anyone—other than evil spirits—have properly and clearly identified Jesus. Peter gets high marks for this statement, but there is more to being a disciple than getting an answer right on a test. There will also be times when Peter tragically backs down from this shining moment. Sadly, he will later deny Jesus when it becomes dangerous to follow him: “I don’t know this man you’re talking about,” Peter says (Mark 14:71). Some days we can see clearly who Jesus is, and we are able to confidently confess his name. These are wonderful moments, and we should celebrate them. But on other days we can compromise our testimony, and those times can turn out to be quite painful. Thankfully Jesus isn’t finished working with Peter, even though he passes this test with flying colors. Jesus isn’t done with any of us yet either. There is still much to learn about Jesus, the Messiah! Dearest Jesus, thank you for showing me who you are and for helping me to understand. Help me to grow in knowing that you are the Messiah, my Savior! Amen.

NL-Day023 Genesis 38-39; Job 23; Mark 14:43-72
GENESIS 38-39: In yesterday's reading, we heard of Joseph's dreams, his brothers' jealousy, and Joseph being sold into slavery in Egypt. JOB 23: Yesterday Eliphaz said: GNT 4 It is not because you stand in awe of God that he reprimands you and brings you to trial. 5 No, it's because you have sinned so much; it's because of all the evil you do. And he also said, 21 Now, Job, make peace with God and stop treating him like an enemy; if you do, then he will bless you. 22 Accept the teaching he gives; keep his words in your heart. 23 Yes, you must humbly return to God and put an end to all the evil that is done in your house. 24 Throw away your gold; dump your finest gold in the dry stream bed. 25 Let Almighty God be your gold, and let him be silver, piled high for you. 28 You will succeed in all you do, and light will shine on your path. Beware that some teachers of prosperity in our age say things just like that, and quote such verses without understanding the message of this book. MARK 14b: Yesterday we heard the story of the Last Supper, the prophecy that Peter would deny Jesus three times, and the prayers at Gethsemane. GNT Translation note: Gen. 38:6 For his first son Er, Judah [arranged a marriage with a woman named//got a wife whose name was] Tamar. ==== Mrk. 14:62 “I am,” answered Jesus, “and you will all see [me—] the Son of Man[,] seated at the right side of the Almighty and coming with the clouds of heaven!” 64 You heard his blasphemy. What is your decision?” They all voted against him: [He was judged guilty and sentenced to death.//he was guilty and should be put to death.]
