This past Sunday, we saw just a part of the interaction around the Last Supper, but there was much more that happen around the table and much more said by Jesus to His disciples. Tuesday night I shared with our men Jesus' closing words at the table that night and the desire He has for us through a prayer that He prays to the Father. The prayer to the Father is in John 17 a...

Significant to the church living out and growing up in the mission of God is the joyful labor of its elders. Elders have been called to gladly and eagerly shepherd the members of the church, so that they will grow up in Christ and live out His miss...

Taking Holiness Serious

If your hand or your foot causes you to stumble, cut it off and throw it from you; it is better for you to enter life crippled or lame, than to have two hands or two feet and be cast into the eternal fire. If your eye causes you to stumble, pluck it out and throw it from you. It is better for you to enter life with one eye, than to have two eyes and be cast into the fiery ...

Great question! Maundy Thursday, gets its name from the Latin word mandatum, which means commandment, remembering Jesus' words to the disciples during the Last Supper, "A new commandmen...

Kicking and Screaming

Now Jesus was walking by the Sea of Galilee, He saw two brothers, Simon who was called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea; for they were fishermen. And He said to them, "Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men." Going on from there He saw two other brothers, James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother in the boat with Zebedee their father, m...

Who is the naked man running through the garden?

If there is a guy in a sheet with nothing underneath you are probably thinking toga party, right? If there is a guy running around naked you are probably thinking this has got to be some kind of fraternity stunt, right? That is what comes to my mind. But, in Scripture it was something totally different. In the gospel of Mark we read that a young man was following Him,...

Make Disciples

What is sacred? God's people have a sacred calling. Our sacred calling is to share the gospel. Why should we evangelize? I pray that your joy and desire to share the gospel would be increased as we see what should motivate us in this great task.
