Following Jesus’ Footsteps – Monday of Holy Week

Following Jesus' Footsteps - Holy Week.

Do you want to hear from Jesus this week in a way that makes your Easter celebration more meaningful?  If so, here is a little challenge.  Follow His footsteps.  The Gospels give us a basic outline of the specific things Jesus did, the places He went, and the words He spoke.  Scholars disagree on some of the exact placement of a few of the events, but the “when” is not nearly as important as the “what” and the “why” of these truths.

Each day this week I’ll be posting some scripture references containing Jesus’ actions during this week leading up to the cross.  So grab your Bible, a piece of paper, and a pen.  Read the  scriptures listed, and ask God to open your eyes to the wonderful truths in His Word (Psalm 119:18). {That’s a prayer that He will always answer with a “Yes!” because it is His will for us to seek and find Him.}  Then let the Words of the Word wash over you and respond in your most personal way.  (If you don’t want to miss a day, you can have the posts e-mailed to you.  Just enter your e-mail address in the box to the left of this post – and be sure to open and confirm the email Feedburner sends to you – and you’ll be good to go.  No spam from me – I promise!)

The scriptures this week will lead us to celebration, appreciation, sorrow, repentance, praise, shock, horror, gratitude, peace, and joy just to name a few of the responses we can expect as God opens up His Word to us.

O Lord Jesus, send forth Your Word… and heal!  (from Psalm 107:20)

Jesus Cleanses the Temple: Matthew 21:12-13; Mark 11:15-18

Jesus Curses the Fig Tree: Matthew 21:18-19; Mark 11:12-14
