What Jesus Did! 'I'll Go Ahead of You' — Mark 14:28

Saturday, October 24, 2020

[Jesus said,] "But after I am raised from the dead, I will go ahead of you to Galilee and meet you there."
— Mark 14:28 NLT

Key Thought

Facing the desertion of his friends and his own death, Jesus' faith was strong. He trusted that God would raise him from the dead and bring him back to his disciples to finish his work of preparing them for the future. Jesus' faith in the face of death and his victory over death in the resurrection have reassured Christians for centuries that, after death, they would again see those that they love in the Lord. May God give us such faith.

Today's Prayer

Eternal Father, please give me such faith! In Jesus' powerful name, I pray. Amen.
