Monday, May 1 (The healing touch) — We don’t know how Malchus responded when Jesus healed him by merely touching him. However, we can know how we respond when Jesus heals us by touching our lives.

Tuesday, May 2 (Another look at abiding)— In the 15th chapter of John’s gospel, Jesus lays it out about abiding in Him. It is an excellent place to start building a closer relationship with Him.

Wednesday, May 3 (Why would anyone choose that?) — The ultimate bad choice is to perish rather than to repent. What can we do to help people make the better choice?

Thursday, May 4 (Another look at Peter’s denial of Jesus) — Peter’s denial of Jesus is not just a heartbreaking story about Peter, it has a lesson of repentance for us when we do the same thing.

Friday, May 5 (Hearing but not listening?) — There is a difference between hearing and listening to what we hear. We may hear God, but there’s always the question of why don’t we listen to Him?
