“the only sign I will give them is the sign of Jonah. What happened to him was a sign to the people of Nineveh that God had sent him. What happens to the Son of Man will be a sign to these people that he was sent by God.” Luke 11:29-30
What happened to Jesus? For the onlookers of his day, if one judged too quickly it appeared Jesus lost all his fame and followers in a big scandal where he ended up being executed. It wasn’t what it looked like and it wasn’t over - still isn’t. People ready to write you off? You follow the King of the comeback. He looked dead and gone - He was just getting started! You’re His. Let that sink in.
There’s your spark. Now fan that into a flame of faith following Jesus!
what is "spark"?
Its a small thing - like the flash on a spark plug that hopefully ignites something bigger to propel you forward.
