Bible passages

Especially for kids: v 11-18

15 Minute Bible Study

Read Isaiah 65.17-25, which is the alternate first reading for today.  It is an image of life on the “mountain of the Lord.”  Read the following Scripture and keep track of some other things that have happened on mountains: Genesis 8.4, Genesis 22.2, Exodus 3.1, Exodus 19.3,

2 Kings 6.17, Psalm 46, Isaiah 11.9 and 25.6, Matthew 4.8 and 5.1 and 17.1, Revelation 21.10.  Life on God’s mountain begins with just a crack on a hillside, this Easter morning.

     Holy Week is an emotional week.  Be gentle with yourself - schedule three fifteen minute opportunities for quiet this week.  Cozy up in your favorite chair, take a walk, turn the radio off in the car.  Give yourself time to experience all the emotions of this walk with Jesus from death to life.

 

    Make a list of the mountains you have climbed both literally and figuratively.  Have they been lifegiving experiences for you?  Why or why not?  Write about your experiences in a journal or share with a trusted friend or family member.
