Jesus’s confidence was in God, so when people were fickle he remained faithful, which is why I think so many people found him attractive. We must read the scriptures with greater intensity to learn this confidence, so we continue to keep the dream of Jesus alive and build his kingdom, regardless of whether we are many or few, important or irrelevant, succeeding or failing, being criticized or praised.
“Deep Purpose” is the theme for the day, and since we studied “Deep Destiny” yesterday, it will be important to differentiate between the two. For our purposes, “Destiny” is the ultimate goal of your life, while “Purpose” is the path you will take and things you will do to get there.

The goal for today is to prepare your heart and mind to let go, whoever it is against, whatever was done, and wherever it happened.
