We are quickly approaching Easter…
We are drawing closer to God’s Word and to His cross.
We are laying down religion and investing in the incredible life changing relationship of following Jesus.
The greatest pieces to all of this is what Jesus Himself did on the cross for you and for me, His unconditional love and the time that He spent leading up to the cross, teaching and preaching. The time He spent preparing His disciples for what was coming and what was next when He was gone.
In the next few weeks we are going to dig deeper in the gospels and study the journey of Jesus in His last few weeks on Earth, we are going to talk death, burial and the incredible resurrection. We are not going to just stop there, we are going to talk about what was next for the church and what we are called to do now. As we move into these next few weeks of our Lent study let’s pray together for God to work deeply in our hearts and minds as we say yes when he says “Follow me.”
Precious Father, we are so grateful for your incredible Word. We are so thankful that it is never silent but filled with the incredible message of your love for us. Your love for broken vessels, God, we are all broken vessels. God, as we draw to your Word and to the cross over the next few weeks, challenge our hearts and minds, renew us and allow the Holy Spirit to teach us. Lord you are our life source, our eternal home…Lord our relationship with you is our everything, we love you and we praise your magnificent name Jesus and what you did on the cross. Amen.
