Lenten Devotional - Day Fourteen

Read: Matthew 16:21-23, 17:22-23, 20:17-19


Think: Sometimes we get the impression that the disciples we completely caught off-guard by the actions of Jesus. And the way we learn and hear the “Holy Week Story” we seem to fixate on the drama of the crucifixion (which is a fair thing to do) and forget what Jesus was actually doing and saying. He didn’t just gather a ragtag, and at times volatile, group of twelve, do his thing, and leave. Every step of the way, he was showing them how to live, preparing them for ministry when he was gone, and telling them over and over what would happen. Why do you think Jesus was foretelling His death and resurrection over and over to the disciples? How does it strike you that the Holy Spirit’s power, that raised Jesus from the dead, lives inside of you if you know Jesus as your Lord?


Pray: God, help me to see that the power of the resurrection lives in me—by your Holy Spirit. Remind me that I can call upon your power for strength, comfort, conviction, boldness, and words to share about who you are.

Apply: Practice having a constant conversation with God throughout your day. Talk to God with little prayers a few times an hour. Thank Him, ask Him for courage and for direction with what He wants you to do. Ask Him for patience. Remember that you have resurrection power!
