Rally together each Sunday at Lindwedel Winery at 9:15 am with questions and discussion.
Let's get started!!
Read John 13-15, then Pray Psalm 104. Ponder the words of John 13:15 and then consider John 15:13. Now bring in 15:3. Indeed we are to follow Jesus’ example, but we do so because He has made us clean…not in order to become clean. He is the vine. He has already given us life. Now we remain in Him, trusting in His promises, seeking to follow him.
Read John 16-18, then Pray Psalm 105. John 16:33 is our reminder of why we have hope in this broken world. Take note of the word “world” as Jesus uses it in all three of these chapters, coming to a climax in 18:36.
Read John 19-21, then Pray Psalm 106. Spend your entire life memorizing the three words Jesus spoke in John 19:30. When Jesus said these words, He fulfilled the Old Testament! This means He took your sin upon Himself! Once and for all! (See Hebrews 10, especially verse 10…also look up 2 Corinthians 5:21). But all of this is now ultimate victory because of Jesus’ Resurrection in chapter 20! John tells why in verses 30-31.
Read Luke 1, then Pray Psalm 107. Luke tells us exactly why he is writing in the first four verses. Take note that Acts was Luke’s second volume which has a similar introduction.
Read Luke 2-3, then Pray Psalm 108. Luke was a physician and we see his attention to detail throughout his writings as he was carried along by the Holy Spirit to write. It also seems highly likely, given the detail he includes from Mary’s point of view that he had an opportunity to either talk with her, or those very close to her.
Read Luke 4-5, then Pray Psalm 109. Three times Jesus quotes Deuteronomy to the devil. Study the devil’s attacks and Jesus’ powerful rebuttals. Remember, Jesus didn’t use His “divine power” to fight the devil, He merely used God’s Word. Which is very much divine and full of power! This is exactly what we should do!
Read Luke 6-7, then Pray Psalm 110. Spend extra time with the words found in Luke 6:27-38. Look at how our hearts are to be oriented toward others. This is a radical teaching and goes against the way many of us were raised. What would happen if all humans lived this way? What would happen if *WE* lived this way? Pray to Jesus that He would help us do this! (HE WILL!!!!)
