February 20: Reliable

 

Scripture Lesson: Matthew 26:36-46

 

Today is the birthday of former New York Yankee Tommy Hendrich, whose playing nickname was “Old Reliable.” Hendrich led the American League in triples twice and in runs scored once. He is best known for his numerous feats in the World Series. He was the hitting star in the 1947 World Series, and in Game One of the 1949 Series he hit the very first walk-off homer in World Series history. Hendrich’s Yankee teammates could always rely on “Old Reliable.”

 

Today’s verses take us back to the Garden of Gethsemane on the night before Jesus’ death. Jesus knew what lay ahead of Him and was overwhelmed with sorrow. He took Peter, James and John with Him into the Garden and asked them to pray for Him. As Jesus was wrestling with the upcoming events, however, the disciples slept. Jesus went back three times to seek their prayers, each time finding them asleep. The night that Jesus needed his closest friends the most, they let Him down. They could have been known as “Old Unreliable.”

  1. Have we been unreliable for the Master?

  2. What does it take to be reliable for Him?

  3. Do we need to ask for His forgiveness?

On this earth we are the hands and feet of Jesus, we are called to love like Him and live like Him each day. That is being reliable for the Master.

On the other hand, I've got the judgment that many laptop computers are still just about powerful adequately to be a sensible choice when you typically accomplish projects that require a great deal of energy, for instance video editing and enhancing. However for website surfing, statement producing, and the majority of other common computer work they are really fine, assuming you never mind your little friend screen size. Many thanks revealing your opinions.
