Resurrection Lessons

Tuesday 3/29/2005:
Bible Study, Luke 24:36-53:
What is the main point?
Jesus assures us of His resurrection. He proves that He is alive and that it is not just wishful thinking.
What does God reveal about Himself? He fulfills His word, and He continues to teach His followers with great patience (see verse 39 through 43).
What insights into my life? Verse 41 describes the great joy the disciples had being in Jesus' living presence. When we enter His presence today in prayer, worship, or fellowship, He brings us His joy. Then, He opens our minds to understand His Word (verse 45).
How can I honor God with this information? Today, I planned to write about helpful Bible Study practices. I can't think of a better one than taking a few minutes to pray and ask Jesus to open our minds to understand His Word relying on the promise of verse 45. When you pray, ask God to help you understand and receive His Word. Through Christ, you are in the Father's holy presence. Approach Him humbly, boldly, and expectantly.
Where is God working today? I continue to ask God for a miracle to let Terri Schiavo live. We commit her into God's hands trusting that He will answer our cry according to His great mercy.
