March 31-April 6

As time ticks down towards the Easter holidays, there is a lot that
needs to be done. I have spent a lot of time this week working on a
series of special sessions on the book of Isaiah that I will be
presenting in Madrid. But there has also been time for the normal
activities of this week. We had our last Bible study on campus this
week before the holidays. And we had a good little group once again. I
also visited Antonio and Gloria this week for a Bible study. It has
been a special blessing to work through some parables with these new
believers. I read the story and explain it to them, and then let them
talk about what Christ meant to teach through this story. It has been
absolutely beautiful to hear them wrestle with the meaning and express
the main teaching. On Sunday I preached about one of the events
between Palm Sunday and the passion week. I spoke about Christ's
cursing of the fig tree. The picture prophecy involved in this act is
powerful, as is the application to us as well. God is not impressed
with "leafyness"; He seeks true fruit.
