Remember #10: What My Friday Says About My Sunday


MY FRIDAY MAY SAY THAT…


  1. MY SUNDAY CAN BE PROPHETIC BUT POINTLESS.


After telling this story, Jesus went on toward Jerusalem, walking ahead of his disciples. As he came to the towns of Bethphage and Bethany on the Mount of Olives, he sent two disciples ahead. “Go into that village over there,” he told them. “As you enter it, you will see a young donkey tied there that no one has ever ridden. Untie it and bring it here. If anyone asks, ‘Why are you untying that colt?’ just say, ‘The Lord needs it.’” So they went and found the colt, just as Jesus had said. And sure enough, as they were untying it, the owners asked them, “Why are you untying that colt?” And the disciples simply replied, “The Lord needs it.” So they brought the colt to Jesus and threw their garments over it for him to ride on.

Luke 19:28-34 NLT


The disciples didn’t notice the fulfillment of many Scriptures at the time, but after Jesus was glorified, they remembered that what was written about him matched what was done to him.

John 12:16 MP


  • If I value God’s word on Sunday, it can secure me on Fridays.


He went with them to Nazareth and obeyed them. But His mother kept all these words in her heart.

Luke 2:51 NLV


2. MY SUNDAY CAN BE CELEBRATORY BUT SELF-CENTERED.


On Sunday the crowds wanted liberation.


The next day the great crowd that had come for the festival heard that Jesus was on his way to Jerusalem. 13 They took palm branches and went out to meet him, shouting, "Hosanna!" "Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!" "Blessed is the king of Israel!"

John 12:12, 13 NIV


It was the day of Preparation of the Passover…about noon. "Here is your king," Pilate said to the Jews. 15 But they shouted, "Take him away! Take him away! Crucify him!" "Shall I crucify your king?" Pilate asked. "We have no king but Caesar," the chief priests answered.

John 19:14, 15 NIV


On Sunday the Pharisees wanted admiration.


But some of the Pharisees among the crowd said, “Teacher, rebuke your followers for saying things like that!”

Luke 19:39 NLT


Many people, because they had heard that he had performed this sign, went out to meet him. So the Pharisees said to one another, “See, this is getting us nowhere. Look how the whole world has gone after him!”

John 12:18, 19 NIV


On Sunday the Apostles wanted promotion.


What do you want me to do for you?” he asked. They replied, “Let one of us sit at your right and the other at your left in your glory.”

Mark 10:36 NIV


Important questions: “What am I looking for on Sunday?”


On this next matter, I wish I could applaud you; but I can’t because your gatherings have become counterproductive, making things worse for the community rather than better. Let me start with this: I hear that your gatherings are polarizing the community; and to be honest, this doesn’t surprise me. I’ve accepted the fact that factions are sometimes useful and even necessary so that those who are authentic and those who are counterfeit may be recognized. This distinction is obvious when you come together because it is not the Lord’s Supper you are eating at all. When it’s time to eat, some hastily dig right in; but look—some have more than others: over there someone is hungry, and over here someone is drunk!

1 Corinthians 11:17-21 VOICE


What should I look for on Sunday? Strength for Friday.


The purpose of whatever you do should be to help everyone grow stronger in faith.

1 Corinthians 14:26c ERV


3. I BENEFIT FROM THE LOVE OF CHRIST EVERY DAY!


We’re all like sheep who’ve wandered off and gotten lost. We’ve all done our own thing, gone our own way. And GOD has piled all our sins, everything we’ve done wrong, on him, on him.

Isaiah 53:6 MP


“The time promised by God has come at last!” he announced. “The Kingdom of God is near! Repent of your sins and believe the Good News!”

Mark 1:15 NLT
