Be inspired and encouraged each morning as we will follow the footsteps of Jesus from the Saturday night party at Simon’s house through the Thursday night Passover in the upper room, as recorded in the Gospel of John. We see Jesus’ compassionate and courageous heart as he boldly defends Mary’s extravagant worship, makes his final vigorous-yet-humble attempts to win over the people and the Pharisees, and goes to incredible lengths endeavoring to turn Judas back from self-destruction and to prepare his squabbling disciples for their future mission and glory.
