THE Final Account

| | Comments (2)

Today's reading: Matthew 26:1-28:20; Mark 14:1-16:20; Luke 22:1-24:53; John 18:1-21:25

Easter weekend is upon us, and that being the case, it's the perfect time to read through one or more of the accounts of Jesus' final days on earth. Each of these accounts record details of this important time, but because the story is being told through four different sets of eyes, the Gospels don't always focus on and highlight the same aspects of what is taking place. That's of great benefit to us because as we read these unique accounts, we can then get the most complete picture of the final hours of Jesus' life and the time He spent on earth after His resurrection.

I invite you to join me in reading one or more of the Gospel accounts of Jesus' final days this weekend. Before you start reading, ask God to reveal something to you that you've not noticed or understood before. Ask Him to impress on your heart how you can use these scripture passages to talk to others about Jesus and salvation. Tami

I read Matthew’s account and underlined key negative things. I have been reading the Bible many years and certainly have read all four Gospel accounts. The thing that stood out for me is v.58 “But Peter followed him at a distance. . .” I belive a lot of us follow Jesus at a distance in the business of our daily lives. We have to prepare out hearts daily, just because we have strength for today doesn’t necessarily mean it is going to be there tomorrow. We have to prepare. What I have encountered a lot of times wittenessing to people is you have to show them they are lost before you can lead them to Jesus.

I read all four gospels.

Matt.26:41 " Watch and pray that you may not enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.”

Jesus was agonizing in the garden as He asked His Father to remove the "cup" from Him. Hope came in the form of an angel to strength Him.

This gives me hope to know when I am tempted that I need to be prepared by praying,being alert and to know that the Holy Spirit Who lives in me will strengthen me to not yield to my temptations too even though I will suffer pain,agonize during the process.
Victory comes when I surrender my will for thy will to be done!
I enjoyed reading these passages again and learn much from them
