Thursday of Sunday after Ascension – Acts 3:11-26

ShareActs 3:11-26 “The former account I made, O Theophilus, of all that Jesus began both to do and teach . . . .” In Luke’s Gospel he faithfully recorded all that Jesus began to do and teach, but here in the Acts of the Apostles he faithfully records what Jesus continued to do through His […]

Tuesday in Lent 5 – John 12:12-19

ShareJohn 12:12-19 “Behold, your King is coming to you, lowly and riding on a donkey.” John’s Gospel doesn’t have the word “lowly,” as does Zechariah’s prophecy, but it is the word I most want to focus on this morning.  The disciples did not at this time understand these things.  Only after Jesus was glorified did […]

Thursday of Epiphany 1 – John 2:1-12

Thursday of Trinity 3 – Luke 7:18-35

ShareLuke 7:18-35 I think God is trying to tell me something!  Once again, in Luke 7, we find people going out to meet Jesus and see who He is.  In this case, it is the messengers of John the Baptist, and once again we find people diligently searching for Jesus Christ and investigating who He […]

Tuesday of Trinity 18 – Matthew 14:13-21

ShareMatthew 14:13-21             Do you ever find yourself doing some of the most important things in life as if you’re just going through the motions?  Sometimes the most important things in life have become so common that we stop noticing them.  For example, most of the time we don’t notice that we breathe to take […]

Tuesday of Trinity 17 – Matthew 12:14-30

ShareMatthew 12:14-30 This Jesus is a mystery! He must have especially seemed a mystery to the first century Jews who encountered Him.  He does miracles that make people believe in Him, but when people demand a miracle, He doesn’t do one.  He does spectacular, divine things, and then He warns you not to tell anyone […]

Monday of Trinity 16 – Matthew 9:18-35

ShareMatthew 9:18-35  So many wonderful choices today!  Do I want to be a ruler whose daughter is raised from the dead, a woman whose twelve-year flow of blood is healed, a blind man who sight is restored, or a mute and demon-possessed man who is healed? How ‘bout I get to be all of them! […]
