ESTABLISHING PEOPLE IN GOD’S WORD SINCE 1970
Our passion is to help people discover Truth for themselves by using the Inductive Bible Study method. We strive to accomplish this by offering Inductive Bible Studies, Training Workshops, conferences, and events for men, women, and students.
For as long as anyone knows, perhaps as long as we have celebrated the resurrection, the Paschal or Easter greeting has been Christ is risen! and the reply that follows is He is risen indeed! This greeting, in a very simple way sums up the core of Christianity.
The Friday before Easter, Good Friday, or in some traditions Black Friday, the church, the body of Christ around the world pauses to focus her gaze on the Cross at Calvary. It is at the cross that we see how great the Father’s love for us is.
You might be wondering what Maundy Thursday is. It is the beginning of the three day celebration of Easter - The Last Supper, the Crucifixion and the Resurrection. It is the most important time of the year for Christians. Maundy Thursday commemorates the last supper Jesus had with His disciples.
If you have been reading the verses we have shared since Palm Sunday you realize it is not easy to figure out what happened on each particular day of the last week of Jesus’ ministry on earth. The events are strung together one after the other and it is sometimes difficult to tell where one day ends and the next begins. But, by the time we get to Wednesday, it is almost impossible to clearly identify the events of the day.
On Sunday the crowds cried
On Sunday Jesus rode into Jerusalem, not on the back of a powerful prancing white stallion, but on the embarrassingly humble and small back of a donkey. He came in to Jerusalem that day just as Zechariah promised almost 550 years earlier (Zechariah 9:9). That evening He returned to Bethany, probably to the home of Lazarus (John 12:1).
This is Holy Week, the week just prior to Easter or Resurrection Sunday. Many churches see this as a time to remember the suffering and death of Jesus through various traditions and worship services.
As a young believer a wise mentor told me “The enemy knows he can’t have your soul so he will do everything he can to keep you from doing what God has called you to do!” I’ve thought a lot about that over the years.
Your brother just cleared the beach. Hilarious!”
Fear unleashes a host of doubts. It chips away at our confidence in God’s goodness. If Jesus can sleep in the storms of the Sea of Galilee, is he asleep in our storms? Does He care? Our minds continue, “If God doesn’t care, then we must take control.” We become control freaks because we perceive a loss of control and somebody has to do something!
