The Reflection Questions for the Week
Nothing in this world will last forever. We must not depend on the words we hear, the things we read, or the possessions we own to sustain us. It is God’s Word that is powerful and eternal. His words will last forever!
Do you find yourself tempted to substitute the words of this world for the words of God? How can you make God’s Word more of a priority in your life?
Every time we wake up and forget to talk to Jesus, we have forgotten. Every time we give into temptation and sin, we have forgotten. Every time we become independent of God and live life on our own terms, we have forgotten. Taking communion helps us to remember. We remember Jesus’ broken body and blood spilled our for us.
Have you forgotten or grown numb to the truth of what Jesus did for you on the cross? Take some time right now and remember.
Jesus knew that those who crucified Him were spiritually blind. They did not know what they were doing. Jesus offered love to His enemies, just as He commands us to love our enemies.
Is there a spiritually blind person in your life who has hurt you and who you need to forgive? This does not mean that you will be reconciled to them, because for reconciliation, repentance is required. However, forgiveness frees you from bitterness and resentment. Who do you need to forgive today?
Chapter 24 -Thursday
Some of the most beautiful words in scripture are these: “He is not here, but has risen.” This is what sets Jesus apart from all other religions in history. You can search every grave but you will not find Him there. Jesus lived a sinless life, and death had no grip on Him. Our God is alive!
Because Jesus is alive, our passions, priorities, plans, and past-times should look different. How has Jesus changed your life?
