Passion Week: Wednesday

Luke 21:37-38
And every day he was teaching in the temple, but at night he went out and lodged on the mount called Olivet. And early in the morning all the people came to him in the temple to hear him.

Two days before he is betrayed, brutally beaten and killed, Jesus is busy. What is he doing? Putting his affairs in order? No. Taking trips with friends to places he never got to visit? No. (That's a dumb one, I know... he created every place and there's no place he hadn't been) Golfing? No.

The last few days of Jesus' life were spent teaching. He genuinely loved people. He came to save people and he wanted them to know the truth which would set them free.

May we honor Christ this Easter as we follow in his steps. Wouldn't it be great if we didn't leave the teaching, the truth, out of our relationships and plans this week?
