Death is a reality. We all know this, but we often fail to live with an awareness of that reality. Jesus knew that death was not final, but He also knew the eternal importance of His final days. How would your life be different if you lived the next two weeks with the same resolve, love and intentionality Christ did in His final days?
Step into the Gospel of John and read through the influence and impact Jesus had the two weeks preceding His death. Once you experience God’s truth, you will never look at life the same – for Jesus is greater than any fear that grips your life or joy that fills your heart.
Week One: When you realize your days are counting down, you really want to make your days count.
“Teach us to number our days that we may gain a heart of wisdom.” – Psalm 90:12
- Live Purposely.
- Be Fully Present.
- Be Powerful.
Scripture: John 11:1-44
Week Two: Imagine yourself among the crowds that experienced Jesus. What might be hard to recognize? What might be hard to learn?
- They were looking for a material deliverance, but God was offering a spiritual deliverance.
- Join God’s Kingdom. He doesn’t join yours.
- Trade fleeting payoffs for fulfilling payoffs
Scripture: Matthew 21:1-11, Mark 11:1-11, Luke 19:28-44, John 12:12:19
