Sometimes people think: ‘If only we’d been there when Jesus was around, it would have been so much easier. He would have explained everything to us, and told us what to do.’ But interestingly, Jesus himself said the opposite - he said that it was better for us if He returned to the Father. Why? Come hear Pastors Jeremy and Lisa explore the next passage in our Last Word series and the promise of Jesus that we would never be alone.
Studies show that people say an average of 7-15 thousand words a day. Most of those words will be quickly forgotten, but when someone nears the end of their life, we tend to pay closer attention. We often get a deeper glimpse into what is most important to them and the things they want us to remember. In the Gospel of John 13-17, we read the last words that Jesus gave to His disciples before His crucifixion. As apprentices of Jesus, we are to pay close attention to what is most prominent on Jesus’ heart as His time on earth nears its culmination.
