April 16: Overcome

 

Scripture Lesson: John 16:29-33

 

On this date in 1941, Bob Feller of the Cleveland Indians overcame 47-degree weather to throw an Opening Day no-hitter against the Chicago White Sox at Comiskey Park. The 1-0 victory was the first no-hitter on opening day since Leon Ames pitched one for the Giants in 1909.

 

On the night before His death, Jesus did His best to prepare the disciples for the events that would unfold later that night and into the next day. He knew they would have many questions after the events took place. Jesus wanted them to have a peace that could only come from God. He reminded them to take heart because He had overcome the world. Jesus knew He would be dying for humanity’s sinfulness in a few short hours. Without Good Friday there could be no Easter Sunday! Jesus overcame death and the grave to provide for each of us the forgiveness of our sins. No matter what life throws at us, we can overcome it with the help of our Lord!

  1. What can we ask Jesus to help us overcome today?

  2. Where do we need peace the most in our lives?

  3. How much do we trust in the Words of Jesus for us today? Enough to bring Him our cares and concerns?

Bob Feller overcame adverse weather to throw a perfect game. Today we can overcome whatever the world throws at us because Jesus is with us!

I was sad to read that Ms. White thought so litlte of the vast and beautiful images of Jesus. For God Himself broke the commandment she used to rebuke by the order to Moses to set up an image of a serpent and Christ Himself is the Image of God on earth. Col 1:15. Worship of an image is a matter of the heart, I am not so shallow a person to confuse an image with the worship of the One Holy God Peace in JesusFr. Travis FrankSt. John's Episcopal
