The Road to the Cross - Easter
God sent the Messiah they needed, not the Messiah they wanted.
What’s one idea from the message that stood out to you? Why do you think it grabbed you?
Did you enjoy “do overs” while playing games as a kid? What about as an adult? Have there been times in your life where you wish you could just yell “do over” and rewind everything?
Read: Mark 1:1, 9, 14, 10:32-34, 14:27-28, 16:1-7.
Why do you think Jesus constantly returned to Galilee where everything began for him?
Is there a place that you find help in returning to?
How do you feel about the phrase “you can never go home again?”
If you have lost your zeal or passion for someone and something, how do you go back to the beginning to remind yourself of why you loved them in the first place?
Jesus had to endure the cross before he returned to Galilee for the last time. What can we learn from this in regards to any limits on what we have to endure before returning to a place or time that is the beginning of something for us?
Do you treat every moment and opportunity as a new beginning, or do you let yourself get bogged down with past events? Why?
How can you help others see or feel the new beginning that God offers?
Prayer: Pray that you live in such a way that honors the new beginning that God has given you.
