Monday 5/29

This week we are going to review the Sermon on the Mount as we will finish the preaching series this coming Sunday. 

We won’t have many questions but will spend more time on reflection and remembering ways that the Spirit has convicted each of us personally during these sermons. 

  • Read Matthew 5: 1-20 

If these characteristics in the Beatitudes are a “redefinition of who the people of God are”, how are you seeing them redefine you? 

We heard in the sermons that “faithfully following Jesus normally costs us something.” Where have you seen this cost in your own life? 

Sunday 5/28

Spend some time in worship and prayer this morning, that the message of Jesus would shine like a light in your own life and the life of our church.

Thursday 5/25

  • Read John 20: 19-31 

How do you see the compassion and kindness of Jesus shine in these verses? 

Twice Jesus offers them “peace” as He surprises them with His presence. Where do you need Jesus to say “peace” to you today?

Wednesday 5/24

  • Read John 20: 11-18 

So Mary had gone back with the two men, they leave, but she remains in tears. 

What can we glean about the faith of Mary from these verses? 

What can we surmise about Jesus when He first reveals Himself to a lone woman? 

Tuesday 5/23

  • Read John 20: 1-10 

I love that a woman is the first to discover the missing body of Jesus. She comes so early in the morning that it is still dark. I picture her waiting and waiting for the end of the Sabbath so that she is free to run to the tomb. 

The ‘other disciple’ who reaches the tomb first, “believes”. But then verse 9 goes on to tell us that they did not understand that Jesus had to rise from the dead. What do you think he ‘believed’? 

In keeping with immersing ourselves in the narrative—what are these two men feeling and thinking in these moments?
