MLK

Posted this last year, worth sharing again… “But I say to you who hear, Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who abuse you. To one who strikes you on the cheek, offer the other also, and from one who takes away your cloak […]

The Resurrection and the Life

Jesus had friends he would hang out with, just like we do.  This should not surprise us, because Jesus became fully human.  He entered into the human experience.  Part of being a human being is having friends.  We were not designed to do life by ourselves as isolated individuals.  One is the loneliest number of all.  We […]

Don’t Be Afraid

So, the correct picture to get is that, yes, Jesus was born in a cave.  For a humanity, as Plato had observed, that was imprisoned in a dark cave watching shadows on the wall, God with us, Emmanuel, comes into the cave.  He’s born in a cave!!  And this child born in a cave is the one who […]

The Great Hope of the World

The kingdom of the world has now become the Kingdom of our Lord and His King, Christ.  God has acted within history to set His king on the throne forever, amen. This is the gospel they preached.  This is what they went about announcing…. But in Thessalonica, the Christians are called  For those making the […]

A Coronation

  The only war on Christmas was when Herod tried to kill Jesus, and that failed, so we can just relax.  We don’t have to worry about a war on Christmas. Jesus survives the War on Christmas, he’s taken to Egypt by Mary and Joseph, comes back to Nazareth and is raised, and when he […]

Jesus on Our Side…

There is a movement afoot today, trying to return us to the faith once delivered by the apostles.  Let’s see if I can help with that during this advent season, and yes, bring glory to this newborn king.   “The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God.” ‭‭Mark‬ ‭1:1‬ ‭ESV‬‬ The […]

Glory to the Newborn King

I’m a few days late.  It’s advent season, the season where we await the coming of our King.   In other words, it’s Christmas season, that most wonderful time of year, Amen!   As such, I am going to break from looking at the seven signs in John.  We only have one left, but I […]

Outside of Karma

With the death of Jesus upon the cross, it appears as though blame has won.  Satanic blame appears triumphant.  But – on the third day, the Son rose again!  And you and I are to live in the light.  Not in the darkness of assigning blame.  We are to live in the light of extending […]

Living in the Light

Still looking at this sixth sign of Jesus as given by John.  I’ll have one more message on this, then will hit “pause” on looking at the seventh sign in a John to take a look at what it is that we mean when we call Jesus “king”.  Because after all, it is the time […]

Work of the Devil

Continuing, finally, with this look at Jesus’s healing of a man born blind.   So Jesus departs from the temple with his disciples.  It’s fruitless, all they want to do is throw stones at him.  He leaves, and as he’s walking through the gate, leaving the temple complex, there sits a man, blind from birth.
