Here are this week’s Reflection & Discussion Questions
Jesus doesn’t just tell us to love our enemies but he tells us how to do it. He tells us to do good to them, bless them and pray for them. We may not feel a warm feeling of love towards them, but there are no loopholes here. We are to love our enemies through visible actions.
Do you have an enemy? How can you show them love this week?
The woman, who washed Jesus’ feet with her tears and hair, had sinned greatly in the past. But her humility and her deep emotional love for Jesus showed that she understood how great God’s forgiveness is.
Pause for a moment and think back over your past and all of the sins you have committed in your lifetime.
Now take a moment and write a personal prayer of thanksgiving to Jesus for his great love and forgiveness of your sins.
When Jairus heard his daughter was dead, he may have lost hope. Perhaps he felt, God did not come through and he was too late. But God’s timing is always right. He can make what is dead – come alive!
God was stretching Jairus’ faith. All Jairus had to do was simply believe Jesus’ words to be true.
Jesus said: “Do not fear only Believe.” Is there an area in your life where fear has crept in and God is stretching your faith?
Jesus told his disciples, if they were going to follow him, they were going to have to take up his cross daily. This was not easy to hear, for the disciples knew that the cross was the way to execute people.
The life of a Christian – is a life of self-denial, sacrifice and of dying to our own wants and desires…daily. In what area of your life has selfishness creeped in? How can you live a surrendered life daily?
There is a common mantra in our world that encourages us to love ourselves. Jesus knows the heart of man. We already naturally love ourselves and so we are commanded to love others LIKE we love ourselves.
Just like we care about our own concerns and interests, we should care about the concerns and interests of others. Who in your life needs more of your love and care today?
