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

Monday, October 24, 2016

"But {after I die}, I will rise from death. Then I will go to Galilee. I will be there before you go there."
— Mark 14:28 NLT
Illustration of Mark 14:28 NLT — "But {after I die}, I will rise from death. Then I will go to Galilee. I will be there before you go there."

Key Thought

Facing his own death and the desertion of his friends, 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 they would again see those that they love in the Lord after death. May God give us such faith.

Today's Prayer

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