Share: A moment from today when you felt close to God, and a moment when you felt far from God.
Read: John 19.15
They cried out, ‘Away with him! Away with him! Crucify him!’ Pilate asked them, ‘Shall I crucify your King?’ The chief priests answered, ‘We have no king but the emperor.’
Discuss: When the chief priests say “we have no king but the emperor” what they are saying is “we worship our own status and security—away with this man who threatens that.” Fill in the sentence: “I have no king but _________.” Be totally honest, remembering that when we confess, we make room in our lives for God’s grace to work. What are the things that take the place of God in your life?
Pray: Ask God for help in arranging your trust and priorities in a way that reflect your faith.
