Luke 6:17-26

20 Then he looked up at his disciples and said:
“Blessed are you who are poor,
    for yours is the kingdom of God.
21 “Blessed are you who are hungry now,
    for you will be filled.
“Blessed are you who weep now,
    for you will laugh.

22 “Blessed are you when people hate you, and when they exclude you, revile you, and defame you[a] on account of the Son of Man. 23 Rejoice in that day and leap for joy, for surely your reward is great in heaven; for that is what their ancestors did to the prophets.

24 “But woe to you who are rich,
    for you have received your consolation.
25 “Woe to you who are full now,
    for you will be hungry.
“Woe to you who are laughing now,
    for you will mourn and weep.

26 “Woe to you when all speak well of you, for that is what their ancestors did to the false prophets.

The question is, will you be a part of that storytelling
by being a first-person life and heart witness to the risen Christ?
Can your life become a living witness for Jesus? 
How have you been a witness this week?
Luke 24:36-48


For God so loved the world that Jesus was sent to give us a second chance at doing life.
The world includes all of creation, not just church people, not just our friends and families,
not just our community, but everyone.

Can you follow God’s lead and find someone outside of your circle to love this week?

Weekly Challenge
In cleansing of the temple, Jesus is teaching us about the purging that needs to take place in our own lives, our group gatherings, and our places of worship — keeping it holy and sacred.

What does Jesus need to flip the tables on and get a whip to drive out?
During this Lenten season, invite Jesus to come into your life, your home,
your gathering and worship spaces to purge and purify what doesn’t belong.

John 2:13-22
