Day Seven – Disciple Duplication

Today’s Scripture: Matthew 28:16-19 The Lord has a way of completing everything He starts. No loose ends. He tied everything up in a neat package during His final visit with the Eleven when He instructed them to “go make disciples.” But, wait. How could these uneducated, ordinary men merit making disciples? They were disciples themselves, following the divine Rabbi. What[…]

Day Five – Exuberant Friendships

Today’s Scripture: John 18:10-11; Luke 22:33-38 As the time of Jesus’ crucifixion neared, His instructions to them changed.

He went out of His way to enlist His followers, and He spent more than three years teaching and grooming them for full-time ministry. It was an unusual relationship between the Rabbi and His students. The fact[…]

Day One – Releasing Regrets

Today’s Scripture: John 21:1-25; Luke 22:54-62; Matthew 26:69-75 Peter is probably everybody’s favorite disciple. He was an impulsive, rash, well-intentioned human being to whom we can all relate. He did some things we would never do, but his actions certainly make us feel better about our own gaffes. We would probably all agree that Peter’s greatest regret was when he[…]
