It’s a Love Without End. Amen!

Every time I read Luke 13:34, it touches my heart all over again: “Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the city that kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to it! How often have I desired to gather your children together as a hen gathers her brood under her wings, and you [...]

The Light Shines in the Darkness

            In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came into being through him, and without him not one thing came into being. What has come into being in him was life, [...]

The Love Chapter

I bet if I asked for a show of hands right now, a lot of you would tell me that you had I Corinthians 13 read at your wedding. I know I did! It’s the truest, most practical explanation I’ve ever read that talks not just about how love feels, [...]

The Rich Man

As Jesus was setting out on a journey, a man ran up and knelt before him, and asked him, “Good Teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life? Jesus said to him, “Why do you call me good? No one is good but God alone. You know the commandments: [...]

Which Disciple was the Greatest?

In Mark 9, as Jesus talks about his betrayal, death, and resurrection, he discovers that as they walked along, his disciples had been arguing about which one of them was the greatest. What? Their master is prophesying his own death, and all they can think about is who’s better than [...]

The Messengers

Jesus called his twelve disciples and began to send them out two by two, and gave them authority over unclean spirits. So they went out and proclaimed that all should repent. They cast out many demons, and anointed with oil many who were sick and cured them. Mark 6:7, 12-13 [...]

How Did Jesus Pray?

  Immediately Jesus made his disciples get into the boat, and go on ahead to the other side, to Bethsaida, while he dismissed the crowd. After saying farewell to them, he went up on the mountain to pray.       Mark 6:45-46 We all know (I hope you know!) that we [...]

Focus On The Positive

In Mark 5, Jesus is approached by a man named Jairus, whose daughter is very ill – so ill that this synagogue leader is desperate enough to beg the radical heretic to come and heal her. They are met along the road by people saying, in effect, “Jairus, your daughter [...]

Many Healings in One

Now there was a woman who had been suffering from hemorrhages for twelve years. She had endured much under many physicians, and had spent all that she had; and she was no better, but rather grew worse. She had heard about Jesus, and came up behind him in the crowd [...]
