Saturday of Trinity 6 – Acts 22:16-29

Share Acts 22:16-29 Here’s part II of my testimony in progress: Eventually I made my way into the Reformed Episcopal Church, originally and to human eyes accidentally because I was teaching school at Good Shepherd School in Tyler, Texas.  In fact, it was because many of the leaders of Believer’s Fellowship were connected to Good […]

Thursday of Trinity 18, 2014

ShareMatthew 15:1-20                    Here’s an interesting experiment that would be fascinating to run: to write down every word that we uttered in a particular day and then examine the transcript. I wonder what such a transcript would reveal about who we are and about how holy we are. An even better measure, […]

Friday of the 4th Sunday after the Epiphany – John 7:25-36

Share       “We know where this man is from; but when the Christ comes, no one knows where He is from” (verse 27). How often we mistake God when He comes to us! The Gospels contain a litany of mistaken attitudes towards Jesus Christ. Some who followed Jesus turn back.  I guess you could say […]

Thursday of the 4th Sunday after the Epiphany – John 7:14-24

ShareJohn 7:14-24 “Do not judge according to appearance, but judge with righteous judgment” (verse 24).  This is the summary of Jesus’ teaching in John 7:14-24, which is illustrated in 2 different ways.

ShareJohn 7:1-13       “For no one does anything in secret while he himself seeks to be known openly.  If you do these things, show yourself to the world” (verse 4). I’m with Jesus’ brothers on this one, although not for the same reasons.  God wants people to come to know Him, and yet He seems […]

Tuesday of the 4th Sunday after the Epiphany – John 6:60-71

ShareJohn 6:60-71 All of this talk about eating the flesh and drinking the blood of Jesus is making my head hurt and my heart ache! “This is a hard saying; who can understand it!” John 6 gets to the heart of the Gospel because it gets to the heart of Jesus Christ. In this last […]
