Jesus began and ended His ministry with two forty-day periods. He spent forty days seeking God in the wilderness as He began His public ministry. He spent forty days after His resurrection completing the training of His disciples as leaders. Today marks forty days until the start of Holy Week, forty days to focus anew on Jesus and the difference His love, life, and leadership make in our lives. Forty days to pour ourselves into seeking God and developing others. What difference will the next forty days make in you as a leader and in those you lead?
After his suffering, he presented himself to them and gave many convincing proofs that he was alive. He appeared to them over a period of forty days and spoke about the kingdom of God. – Acts 1:3
Prayer: Lord, renew me to serve Your purpose as I walk with You through the next forty days. I pray that my leadership will increasingly reflect Jesus and His example of serving You and others. In His name I pray, amen.
