Jesus is the Source of Eternal Life

Scripture: John 17:1-11 CEB These words that Jesus prays to His Father reveal His eternal purposes and priorities. They go straight to the heart of our obedience as His disciples. We may not always want to hear this, but we must follow Jesus by putting aside what we want, by lifting our gaze to take…

Recognized As Christians By Our Love

Scripture: John 14:15-21 CEB   This week we continue to look at Jesus’ teaching that he gave on the night before His crucifixion. In this passage, we see Jesus’ love and care for His disciples, and also hear some guidance for their future. Jesus tells them, “If you love me, you will keep my commandments.” (v.15)…

Experiencing God’s love leads us to trust God

Scripture: John 14:1-14 CEB  Today we celebrate Mother’s Day. Even in this challenging season, we can take the time to honor the woman or women we love on this special day. A good mother exemplifies through her actions the kind of trust that Jesus is inviting us to have in Him as specified in today’s…

Walking in through the Right Door

John 10:1-10 CEB  This passage made me think about doors and how important it is to choose the right one. We must enter through the right door to get into the right place. But, sometimes we go through the wrong door and this leads us into wrong and sometimes embarrassing places. I will tell you…

Encountering Jesus on the Road

This Scriptural story begins three days after Jesus’ crucifixion. Two of Jesus’ disciples were walking to Emmaus, a town near Jerusalem. As they walked, they talked about the terrible events that had happened over the weekend.

The most important detail of these verses is that Jesus joined His followers on their journey. Jesus faithfully came to them even as they struggled to process what had happened.

From Blindness to Seeing

John 20: 19-31 Many Christians might agree with me that the most famous hymn ever written is “Amazing Grace,” isn’t it? “Amazing Grace, How sweet the sound. That saved a wretch like me. I once was lost, but now am found. Twas blind but now I see…”   This hymn describes the most profound reality. We…

Reflection: From Darkness, God brings us Light

Scripture: John 20:1-18 This year we celebrate Easter Sunday in a very different way than what we are used to. Across the world, most churches are remembering Jesus’ resurrection via social media and the internet. It is true that many sanctuaries are empty and closed for public worship celebrations today. But, on this special day,…
