Passage: Luke 19:11-27
In other words, one last time, before they enter the Holy City, Jesus tries to set His disciples straight about what is to happen and what it will mean for them.
And then Jesus begins the parable proper: “A nobleman went into a far country to receive for himself a kingdom and then return.” Now, right there is something everyone listening would have immediately understood, something “ripped from the headlines,” so to speak. You see, this idea of a nobleman going to a far country to receive a kingdom was not a fiction, but an event which had actually happened in the living memory of those around Jesus.

Passage: Luke 18:15-34
“Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it.” The first thing Jesus wants us to understand about the impossible becoming possible regarding who can be saved is that it begins to become possible the moment we give up on our false saviors, and confess to Him our helplessness, confess to Him our true infant-like need for Him.

Passage: II Corinthians 4:7-5:1
Book: II Corinthians
Because Jesus Christ has risen from the dead, death need no longer scare us the way that it often does – for the grave can longer hold us and death can no longer end us – “We shall rise, we shall rise!”
