Distracted - Preparing for Easter
Three messages in Mark 14-15 focus on the people near Jesus in the final hours before the crucifixion. The distractions of pride, fear and privilege still keep people from seeing Jesus as he reveals himself increasingly throughout his life, even clearer in his final hours, and most clearly in his death and resurrection. As we prepare for Easter, we encourage one another to: "Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have." 1 Peter 3:15
