Welcome to 21 Days of Easter with Rusty George

Join me as we journey through the book of John together for 21 days of devotionals leading up to Easter Sunday. My prayer is that these 21 days of reflection and meditation would leave you all encouraged and strengthened in your faith, and that you would use these devotionals to encourage the people around you.

I cannot wait to see the amazing work that God does within us all as we grow together studying this powerful book of the Bible.
 

Day 11: What Is Your Image of Jesus?

What is your image of Jesus? A shepherd… a savior… a resurrected King?  Maybe a healer, and forgiver, our Lord? How often do you remember that Jesus was also fully human?  Jesus was 100% God and man.   In John 11 we read about Jesus attending the funeral of his friend...

Day 10: What Is Jesus Saying to You Today?

Day 10: What Is Jesus Saying to You Today?

We don’t understand the sheep stories very well.   Jesus uses a lot of them because his audience knows them as well as we know dogs. (though I doubt anyone ever put a Halloween costume on a sheep back then) So when he says this phrase, it’s a bit lost on us. "The...

Day 8: Who Are You Accusing?

Day 8: Who Are You Accusing?

Today we read one of the most famous accounts of Jesus’ interactions with people.  "Jesus returned to the Mount of Olives, but early the next morning he was back again at the Temple. A crowd soon gathered, and he sat down and taught them." John 8:1-2 This is not a...

Day 7: What Are Your Assumptions About God?

Day 7: What Are Your Assumptions About God?

Somehow we all grow up with an image of God. And we often carry this into our adulthood. For me it was an image of a powerful being in the sky recording my every move and quietly keeping score on how well I was doing.  What is it for you? Old man on a big throne in...

Day 6: How Do You See Jesus?

Day 6: How Do You See Jesus?

For many of us trusting in Jesus is a bit difficult.  After all, we can’t see him. We hear people tell stories of “placing their trust in Jesus” or “surrendering their lives to Jesus” and we think, “good for you, but I’m a bit more cautious.”  Or maybe you even use...

Day 5: What is On Your To-Do List?

Day 5: What is On Your To-Do List?

Odds are you have a to-do list for today. Pick up the kids, drop off the dry cleaning, prep for dinner, deal with homework and music lessons. Oh, and go to work.  Odds are you have a to-do list FOR God as well. Not what you want him to do, but we all have that. But...

Day 4: Worship is Not About Perfection

Day 4: Worship is Not About Perfection

Jesus continues to drop jaws. He heals people.  He tells the religious rulers that acceptance with God is not based on perfection.  And now he’s about to tell someone that it has nothing to do with place. This was big back then.  Everything was about the temple. ...

Day 2: Who Did Jesus Trust?

Day 2: Who Did Jesus Trust?

A counselor once told me that Jesus trusted people, but would not “entrust” his heart to them. In other words, the only one who held his heart was his Father. Think about how much less pain we might have if we’d practiced that simple truth. Most of us entrust our heart to people’s opinions, approval, support and loyalty only to end up broken hearted.  

Day 1: More Than Just a Holiday

Day 1: More Than Just a Holiday

It’s more than a holiday for family, more than bunnies and eggs, and more than a family dinner.  Easter changed the world. Over the next 21 days let’s take some time to walk with Jesus' closest friend, John as he tells us who this man was, and is.  Here’s what we know...

Coming Soon: 21 Days to Easter

Coming Soon: 21 Days to Easter

Join me as we journey from calvary to resurrection through twenty-one days of devotionals leading up to Easter. My prayer is that these 21 days are a time of spiritual growth, encouragement, and a deeper knowledge of the great sacrifice that Jesus made on the cross for you and for I.
