Two by two the disciples went out with message of salvation. They called people to repentance, to find forgiveness in Jesus. There were some very specific instructions to these first missionaries. This Sunday like the prophets of old, we looked at God’s plan for reaching out with his word.
This Sunday we had a chance to meet Jairus. This Synagogue Ruler who lived in Jesus day would’ve done anything to find help for his dying daughter. All he needed was Jesus, the Master Physician.
“Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!” With cries and shouts, for more than a thousand years, the church has celebrated the triumphal entrance of Jesus into his city, Jerusalem. Jesus isn’t just the King of the Jews, he is the King of the Universe.
If you could gain the whole world, would you give up your soul? That’s a pretty easy question to answer for the veteran Christian. There is nothing more important than our soul. Where we spend eternity is far more important than anything else in life.
