"... Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world." Matthew 25:34
He's rattled the temple, He's called the Chief Priests out, He's comforted the prostitutes. It's fair to say Jesus kicked up dust on the path to the cross. Are you still holding on to His Hand? It's total turmoil, but with God, peace will fill our soul.
We are surrounded by deadlines at school and at home -- an incredible student production of "Lion King" starts next week with 4 shows, plus Spring break is around the corner. It's time to kick into high gear and focus on getting the job done.
Jesus found Himself with such deadlines, His last week on earth. Knowing His days were numbered, He unleashed many lessons --
To His followers He encouraged them to choose rightly and righteously.
To His critics, the religious leaders, He scolded them for misguiding His sheep.
To the unbelievers, He gave warnings.
He told believers about being ready and watchful, as He instilled in them the hope of things to come.
Jesus holds nothing back for He has nothing to lose, and everything to gain... another believer, joining His family for eternity. He did and will do anything to reach one more.
friend, we are loved and chosen by God,
