The Bad Boys of Easter — In the days and weeks preceding the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus, the high priest Caiaphas found his way into the story. He had an opportunity to stand in the presence of the Savior of the world, but refused to abandon his quest for control and surrender to his Creator. It’s easy to dismiss Caiaphas as a fool, but what have we put in the place of God?

There’s a little Caiaphas in each of us. We try to preserve whatever it is we’ve replaced God with in our lives—reputation, relationship, position, beauty, GPA, or standard of living. But those things are already diminishing in value. Your greatest regrets are connected to attempts to preserve something that isn’t even a part of your life anymore. Pressure to preserve the little gods will eventually drive you to extremes that harm you or others. — Andy Stanley #BadBoysOfEaster

Scripture: John 10:17–18 “The reason my Father loves me is that I lay down my life—only to take it up again. No one takes it from me, but I lay it down of my own accord. I have authority to lay it down and authority to take it up again. This command I received from my Father.”
