posted Apr 4, 2017, 12:49 PM by Grant Garber
  • The women followed Jesus even when many of Jesus’ other followers had abandoned Him.
  • Jesus wanted “the women” to have faith in Him as their Savior.
  • Jesus is giving them and us a warning to repent when He says, “Daughters of Jerusalem”.
  • During times of horror and catastrophe it seems better to not have children than to see them suffer and die.
  • From an earthly perspective, Jesus didn’t want the women to experience the horrible siege of Jerusalem by the Romans that would come within a generation when people tried to make the kingdom of God come through military action and violence instead of through supporting the ministry of Christ and the Word of God.
  • From a heavenly perspective, Jesus wanted the women to weep over their own sins, to put their faith in Him, follow Him and avoid eternal judgment.
  • So what about today? From an earthly perspective, Jesus wants us…….
    • As brothers and sisters to live together in harmony
    • To help each other.
    • To bear each other’s burdens.
    • To encourage each other.
    • To pray for each other.
    • Our families and communities to be able to live peaceful and quiet lives.
    • To have our daily bread, that is, our necessities for everyday living.
  • From a heavenly perspective, Jesus wants us…..
    • To have faith, hope and love.
    • To know that our sins are forgiven and we have an inheritance waiting for us in heaven.
    • To celebrate the Lord’s Supper until He comes again.
    • To be filled with the Spirit and worship Him wholeheartedly.
    • To use His powerful Word and love to bring others to Him.
