WHAT HYMN DID JESUS SING THE NIGHT BEFORE? On the Thursday night before His crucifixion, Jesus and His disciples sang a hymn together after finishing the Passover meal.

ARE YOU PREPARED FOR CHRIST’S RETURN? Referring to Himself by the Messianic title, “Son of Man, Jesus described His Second Coming to His disciples.

THE MARVELOUS MESSIAH Even Christ’s enemies “marveled at Him” when He answered their question about paying taxes. Jesus displayed amazing wisdom with such brevity and fulness (“Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s.”).

WHAT BODY POSITION IS PREFERABLE FOR PRAYING? In Christ’s teaching on prayer, He assumed that the disciples would stand to pray. I’ve never done a study on the body positions of those praying in the Bible, but it might be an interesting research. Many pray while seated or even while lying in the bed. I’m

LEAD LIKE JESUS Jesus turned the theory of leadership upside down. He taught His disciples, who were arguing about who would rise to leadership, that the path to greatness in God’s economy was downward, not upward. Jesus was the model of the Servant Leader. He led by service. Washing feet, feeding the hungry, healing the

A SECOND TOUCH FROM JESUS Jesus healed many that were blind with a single word or touch, yet in this case, the blind man received a second touch. He saw light without focus on the first touch, but the second touch of Jesus gave him clarity, so that he saw “everything clearly.” We must be

WHAT WILL BE YOUR MISSION REPORT TO CHRIST? When the disciples returned from where Christ had sent them out two-by-two on mission, they reported to Him what they had done and taught. They must have been thrilled to give their mission report to Jesus. For He was their Captain and their Friend. What joy they

“He commanded them to take nothing for the journey” (Mark 6:8 NKJV).

WHOM THE LORD SENDS HE SUPPLIES Jesus sent His disciples out two-by-two, empowering them to do the ministry they had seen Him doing.
