Daily Word Of God

Mark 12:35-37

While teaching in the Temple, Jesus said, ‘How can the scribes maintain that the Christ is the son of David? David himself, moved by the Holy Spirit, said: The Lord said to my Lord, sit at my right hand and I will put your enemies under your feet. David himself calls him Lord; in what way then can he be his son?’ And the great majority of the people heard him with delight.

Today's Pointers on God's Word

As you read the passage what words, phases or meanings caught your attention?

  • Jesus asserts that He is not only the Messiah of David’s son but also His Lord. What does this mean?


  • When we pledge that Jesus is our Lord, we are inviting Him to be the centre of our lives and to free us from our sins. Only Jesus can free us to love, as God intends us to love, from the beginning.


  • Is Jesus the true King of your heart in every areas of your life? Do you willingly allow His Spirit and His Teachings to be your “rule” and guide as you try to discern the way you live daily?
