    based on 1 rating

    God’s invitation to the Great Feast (God’s kingdom) is free but it is costly as it demands that we put Jesus above all else.

    We continue this second week of our 40 day journey through Lent as we walk with Jesus to the cross. Last week I reminded us of the scripture passage from Luke 9:51 which said “When the days drew near for him to be taken up, he set his face to go to Jerusalem.” Jesus, knowing full well what would more
