What Would You Do if You Knew Your Time Was Limited?

What if you were told that you had just a few days to live?  What would you do with your time?  Would you go wild, and indulge yourself in every pleasure imaginable?  Would you find a handful of those closest to you, and savor every moment with them?  Or maybe you or I would just curl up into a ball, and never even get out of bed.

Jesus of Nazareth knew that He had only a few more days to live. 

He came into Jerusalem, greeted by a throng of public admirers; but in the background, there lurked a host of seething enemies, plotting His demise.

He knew that He was going to give His life.  It would happen before the week was out, in fact.

So, what did He do with Himself?

“And every day he was teaching in the temple; and every night he went out, and lodged in the mount that is called Olivet. And all the people came early in the morning to him in the temple, to hear him.”  Lk. 21:37-38

 

Jesus spent His last days giving Himself to the same task that had prompted His coming from Heaven; the same task that had occupied His purpose since He began His public ministry.  Every day, He spent His day serving people, and teaching them why He was here.  He was here to free them from their sin.

And the people streamed to Him.  He did not shrink back, but He invested His final hours proclaiming to them that eternal hope captured in 1 Timothy 1:15: “Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners.”

Before the week was over, His enemies would have Him killed.

And before the next week began, He had risen again, to go before all of those who would believe in Him.

Luke Feldner and Vince Tidwell are introducing an adult fellowship group focused on studying and discussing Systematic Theology. The planned curriculum includes ten introductory lessons on defining and categorizing theology, Christian epistemology, defining "essentials" vs "non-essentials", and the historical sources and norms of Christian belief. The goal of this new small group will be to hold each other accountable for obeying Christ's command to love the Lord with all of our heart, soul, mind, and strength. Contact the office at mccn14@gmail.com if you are interested.
