“You heard me say to you, ‘I am going away, and I will come to you.’ If you loved me, you would have rejoiced, because I am going to the Father, for the Father is greater than I. And now I have told you before it takes place, so that when it does take place you may believe.” (John 14:28-29) Scripture Reading – Philippians 2:6-11 If we’re honest, we have to admit that we look for situations that are advantageous to us. This is true even in picking a place of ministry. We think that we’ll go wherever God calls us and do whatever He wills, but in reality, we infuse God’s call with our self-interest.

“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.” (John 14:27) Scripture Reading – II Corinthians 11:23-33 What is the purpose of your life? It should be to be useful to the Kingdom of God. A faithful disciple doesn’t love his life, but is instead willing to pay the cost of following Christ.

Otherwise they won’t have time for you. But this is not the case with the most important person, Jesus. One thing that has always amazed me about Jesus is that no one ever needed an appointment to meet Him. They could come to Him in the middle of the night like Nicodemus or touch Him on the street like the woman with bleeding. We see this occurre

“Judas (not Iscariot) said to him, ‘Lord, how is it that you will manifest yourself to us, and not to the world?’ Jesus answered him, ‘If anyone loves me, he will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him. Whoever does not love me does not keep my words. And the word that you hear is not mine but the Father’s who sent me.’” (John 14:22-24) Scripture Reading – I Corinthians 3:16-23 Now that the mystery about the oneness of the Father and Son was revealed, this mystery needed to be explained to the world. Judas (not Iscariot) put forward an important question: “If what you told us is so important then why are you only sharing it with us? E
