Mark 11:1-11; Mark 14:1-15:47

The Gospels, especially John, tell us that we can live the resurrection life now. Deep down, this is what we are searching for, struggling for. But there is something extremely powerful that stands between us and the possibility of finding what Jesus called ‘the little door,’ the way in to this resurrection life. That powerful thing is our survival instinct. We are fighting for survival, fighting for life, all the time, even when we don’t need to.
