Lent Bible Challenge | Day 22
March 21
Luke 9:18-50

What does it mean to confess Jesus as the Christ?; to follow him, his teachings, life example and to embrace, enable and expect the power of resurrection in our own lives and world - not just at death - but here and now today? Jesus was misunderstood - in his own context - by his adversaries and even by his closest friends and confidant. His is a different model - a different way - in which service is greater than power, in which life-giving is how life-wining is done - not in life-preserving. Is it an invitation to death or martyrdom or is it a way to new life beyond the fear of despair, the doubt of destruction and the division of human brokeness?
