The Urgency

There is a feeling of growing urgency in Jesus’ teaching the closer he gets to the cross.

I love the Chronological Bible because its gives us a better understanding of the timing of events.  Now, suddenly, all of the things Jesus predicted have started to come true and his words to us are jam-packed full of life-transforming truths. 

He starts to try to boil-down his teachings to only the most important things so that his disciples – and us – will remember them.  He has stopped telling stories and parables.  Now he is trying to say things as clearly and quickly as he can.  His time is short and Jesus is trying to do everything can to help them prepare for what’s going to happen.

We have a great opportunity , during this week of Thanksgiving, to focus on Jesus’ wisdom, his purpose and his ultimate sacrifice for us.  His ultimate sacrifice for me.

So I’m planning to blog every day through Thanksgiving as we follow the momentum that is building towards Jesus’s sacrifice on the cross.

This is a pivotal time in the greatest love story in the history of the world.

Our eternity depended on it.
