Staying focused on Jesus during Holy week can be challenging. Keep up the good work reading and reflecting this week! Stand strong in your love for Christ and one another. Let the love of Christ richly dwell within you. He calls us to do all we can to walk in unity and love. “and walk in the way of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.” Ephesians 5:2 NIV
Read: Matthew 21:18-22
Reflect: Why do you think Jesus caused the fig tree to wither? Think about the visual lesson Jesus is bringing to the Apostles and to us. The symbol of a full of life fig tree now withered. Then Jesus goes on about the importance of faith. They will need their faith when they see Jesus wither in front of them. Is your faith withering? What can you do to bring you faith alive?
Write: thoughts about your faith and where you are in your journey, ask God for help and for Him to reveal what you need.
