Luke 15 Recovering lost things

Friday, March 27, 2015      0 comments

Read Luke 15 There are three stories but they can be applied in so many ways. The lost sheep, lost coin and the prodigal. Of course there is also the son who never leaves. I think all of us can fall into each category at times. A lost sheep... Read more

Luke 14 To follow Jesus we have to hate everyone else

Thursday, March 26, 2015      0 comments

Read Luke 14 Hate is a pretty extreme word, it may be a poor translation here. Better to say we must put God before everyone else, to love Him more. We're still supposed to love our enemies and pray for those who we think are twits. That... Read more

Luke 13 Jesus laments for Jerusalem

Wednesday, March 25, 2015      0 comments

Read Luke 13 There is a principle that capitol cities will attract some of the most base people to exist. Something about living close to the perceived seat of power. It is so obvious today in our country, the nation's capitol is filled wi... Read more

Luke 12 Acknowledge Christ before men.

Tuesday, March 24, 2015      1 comments

Read Luke 12 So what exactly does that mean to acknowledge Christ? Does it mean to proclaim Him as savior? To run around trying to tell everyone about Him? A little bit of both maybe. It should be an open acknowledgement that He is sove... Read more

Luke 11 Be a pest

Monday, March 23, 2015      1 comments

Read Luke 11 I've often heard the story beginning at verse five but recently learned a bit more about it. The friend that comes by on a journey isn't just stopping for a visit. A better translation is a friend has come out of his way with ... Read more

Exodus 39 The priestly garments

Sunday, March 22, 2015      0 comments

Read Exodus 39 The garments are made of the most precious things they had. To be worn only by the high priest on special occasions. The stones on the breast and shoulders reminded Aaron that he represented the entire tribe of Israel when ... Read more

Exodus 38 Weaving linen hangings

Saturday, March 21, 2015      0 comments

Read Exodus 38 The beginning of the chapter describes the altar and utensils on the outside of the tabernacle, the things close to man are made of bronze, those close to God on the inside of the tent are made of gold. But lets look at the... Read more

Luke 10 Jesus many disciples

Friday, March 20, 2015      0 comments

Read Luke 10 When we think of Jesus' disciples we typically only think of the twelve, but by definition anyone who follows a person's teaching is a disciple. Some texts read that He separated out of his disciples seventy others and sent ... Read more

Luke 9 Sent out by God

Thursday, March 19, 2015      0 comments

Read Luke 9 Jesus sends out the disciples with no provisions, trusting only in God. That's a scary thought for most of us. There was one time when I was totally willing to trust God to meet every need. The pastor I had at the time didn't sh... Read more

Luke 8 The storm at sea

Wednesday, March 18, 2015      0 comments

Read Luke 8 I've had some different discussions about this trip across the sea and the storm. Did Jesus know it was coming? Was the storm sent by the devil, or perhaps the multitude of demons that possessed the Gaderene? Those are certainly... Read more

Luke 7 The city of Nain

Tuesday, March 17, 2015      1 comments

Read Luke 7 The city of Nain was an area in the Galilee, established by the tribe of Issachar. All of the travels of Jesus are not recorded, just as John writes in his gospel that all of Jesus' miracles are not, but I will wager that He vis... Read more

Luke 6 Judge not, doesn't mean what people think

Monday, March 16, 2015      0 comments

Read Luke 6 I hear a lot lately about people not judging others, typically they will quote either this chapter or the complement in Matthew 7. It usually is associated with sexual and social preferences. The problem though is that the man w... Read more

Exodus 37 Making the Ark, Candle, and Incense altar

Sunday, March 15, 2015      0 comments

Read Exodus 37 We could spend a week or more on these items, how the Ark represented the unapproachable God, how the mercy seat is Christ making a way possible. The lamp-stand with seven candles, the number associated with God, the number ... Read more

Exodus 36 Stop giving, we have too much

Saturday, March 14, 2015      0 comments

Read Exodus 36 Can anyone imagine a preacher telling the congregation not to give because they had too much? Seems pretty out there but that's what happened here. So many people were moved to contribute that they brought more than was nee... Read more

Luke 5 Jesus teaches

Friday, March 13, 2015      0 comments

Read Luke 5 It's the very beginning of the chapter that I am looking at today. I picture the lake front as a busy market type atmosphere. There are a lot of people who fish and they're now selling or doing maintenance. I picture a crowd of ... Read more
