I’ve heard story after story of people hearing from God, seeing Jesus in a fresh way, and making tangible changes in their lives. That’s why we exist! Good thing too, because every week God has taken absolutely everything out of me, digging & wrestling thru the stories.
Anyway, yesterday we walked through a "harmony of the gospels" of Jesus’ last 24 hours and talked about 1 of our 5 purposes at Grace that we CANNOT do in heaven: "Evangelism" (i.e. helping tell God’s story of the cross of Christ).
Here’s some thoughts:
- While singing during our first service, I sensed God REWRITE my whole final point.
I loved piecing together the timeline this past week. Some times were my "educated guesses." Other times were specified in the Bible:
- Just for fun, I thought I’d give you my raw Microsoft Word timeline notes. Just click here: Download chronology_jesus_final_day.doc
- The mega-handout yesterday had to be a record…73 verses. Wanted people to have something for their records. The toughest part was figuring out what NOT to say. Could’ve taught for hours. 🙂
Finally, don’t forget the most powerful question you could ask someone this week: Would you come to an Easter service with me?
