Help! I need someone

April 28

April 28 — Help, I need someone

• Jesus said that if we are heavy laden, come to Him for rest. He didn’t say we had to work hard to get that rest.

• If you need help, Jesus has the answer for you.

• Sometimes our biggest help is when we stop and hear God’s voice.

Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.

— Isaiah 41:10 NLT

• It is crucial to know He is, but even more crucial to know He will.

God is our refuge and strength, always ready to help in times of trouble.

— Psalm 46:1 NLT

• God is always ready, willing and able to help. Are we willing to receive His help?

• No matter what you are going through, God is able to help.

• Instead of asking God for help, just receive His help.

My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth!

— Psalm 121:2 NLT

• He is an ever-present help in our time of need.

• When that unction comes to speak a positive word to someone, you need to do it.

All of you together are Christ’s body, and each of you is a part of it.

— 1 Corinthians 12:27 NLT

• With our body, nothing happens unless the brain tells it to. Jesus is the head of the church. He said He doesn’t do anything unless He sees the Father doing it.

For I was hungry, and you fed me. I was thirsty, and you gave me a drink. I was a stranger, and you invited me into your home.

— Matthew 25:35 NLT

• This verse is speaking about physical and spiritual feeding. How do you feed people? You live your life in front of them. Represent God, encourage people, share scriptures, etc.

• You can be in prison but never see the door slam before you. People can be a prisoner of their own mind. Clothe yourself in the armor of God.

• He is God, no one else. His word says He will. Receive it and thank Him for it.

• Be a witness. Whatever we are is more important that what we do.

“Then these righteous ones will reply, ‘Lord, when did we ever see you hungry and feed you? Or thirsty and give you something to drink? Or a stranger and show you hospitality? Or naked and give you clothing?

— Matthew 25:37-38 NLT

When did we ever see you sick or in prison and visit you?’ “And the King will say, ‘I tell you the truth, when you did it to one of the least of these my brothers and sisters, you were doing it to me!’

— Matthew 25:39-40 NLT

Life Lesson: When someone says “Help, I need someone”, always point the way to Jesus. He is a very present help in time of trouble.

Resurrection Sunday

He isn’t here! He is risen from the dead, just as he said would happen. Come, see where his body was lying.

— Matthew 28:6 NLT

• We don’t need to look for life among dead things. We serve a risen Savior.

Life Lesson: If we are going to attain anything God has for us, we need to be passionate about it.

The next day, the news that Jesus was on the way to Jerusalem swept through the city. A large crowd of Passover visitors  took palm branches and went down the road to meet him. They shouted, “Praise God! Blessings on the one who comes in the name of the Lord! Hail to the King of Israel!”

— John 12:12-13 NLT

— Passion Week —

  • Monday — Mark 11:13-24

• If you speak to that mountain and don’t doubt in your heart, you shall have what you say. Jesus called the fig tree a mountain. A mountain is anything in your life that is standing in the way.

  • Tuesday — Matthew – 23:13-33

• When we stop trying to please man, you will automatically please God. You can’t please both. Man will not always agree with you.

  • Wednesday — Mark 14:10-11 NKJV

Then Judas Iscariot, one of the twelve, went to the chief priests to betray Him to them. And when they heard it, they were glad, and promised to give him money. So he sought how he might conveniently betray Him. The people that paid Judas money to betray Jesus were the same people who wouldn’t accept the money back because it was blood money. That is what man-made religion can do to a person.

  • Maundy Thursday — John 13:1-38

• The way you handle betrayal and offense from people is that you let them go and let them do their own thing. Let it go.

• Jesus taught us how to serve by washing feet. Anything you put your hands to that helps people is serving them. What do they need? How can you help?

• Christ alone is all we need. Not Christ plus anything else.

• Jesus knows what we are going through and how to get us through it. He was touched by the feelings of our infirmities.

  • Friday — Luke 23:42-43 NLT

Then he said, “Jesus, remember me when you come into your Kingdom.” And Jesus replied, “I assure you, today you will be with me in paradise.”

• If you believe in your heart that God raised Jesus from the dead and confess with your mouth that He is Lord and Savior, you will be saved. All that call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.

• The story of two thieves on crosses beside Jesus is a beautiful illustration that shows how some will believe Jesus and some won’t. One thief acknowledged that Jesus was Lord and to remember Him when he entered his kingdom; the other thief didn’t.

So when Jesus had received the sour wine, He said, “It is finished!” And bowing His head, He gave up His spirit.

— John 19:30 NKJV

• When you lay down your life for Christ, He picks you up and carries you.

• The stuff you lay down for Christ may be the stuff that is killing you.

• “It is finished,” coupled with “I believe I receive,” can resurrect your life and turn it around. “It is finished” refers to everything that He offered you. You have to believe beyond the shadow of a doubt that He gave everything to you.

Yet I am confident I will see the Lord’s goodness while I am here in the land of the living.

— Psalm 27:13,14 NLT

• God wants to resurrect whatever it is you have lost or are lacking.

  • Sunday morning — John 20:1-2 NLT

Early on Sunday morning, while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene came to the tomb and found that the stone had been rolled away from the entrance. She ran and found Simon Peter and the other disciple, the one whom Jesus loved. She said, “They have taken the Lord’s body out of the tomb, and we don’t know where they have put him!”

• Mary Magdalene had seven devils cast out of her. God doesn’t consult your past to determine your future.

• We need Jesus because He got up and he can help us get up. Don’t look for God in the world or in the news.

Peter and the other disciple started out for the tomb.

— John 20:3 NLT

• John referred himself as “the disciple that Jesus loved.” Christ wasn’t different with John, John was different with Christ. Don’t covet what others have, covet what God has for you.

He isn’t here! He is risen from the dead, just as he said would happen. Come, see where his body was lying.

— Matthew 28:6 NLT

• He is not the “man upstairs,” he is the Christ within.

Life Lesson: Jesus fulfilled His passion, and he taught us how to fulfill ours.
