Climbing the rappel tower (video blog)

Tuesday, March 31, 2015      2 comments

Ran program Saturday, put about 100 kids on ropes. Challenged the young staff to climb up the tower. Only the 'old man' did it. For some reason the video just won't work for me. If it dosen't load here is a link. Read more

Easter Week Tuesday

Tuesday, March 31, 2015      0 comments

Two different events to look at today. The fig tree is withered, Jesus authority is challenged. I've heard the fig tree preached in different ways, mostly as a faith thing. I think it more a warning, this was a tree with the appearance of ... Read more

Easter Week Monday

Monday, March 30, 2015      0 comments

There are two significant events that took place on this day. Jesus cursed the fig tree and he threw out the traders from the temple. In Luke's gospel it seems like the same day, Mark says that He went to the temple on Sunday, looked aroun... Read more

Easter week, Palm Sunday

We finished Exodus at a fortuitous time as today begins Easter week. The story of Palm Sunday is in all of the gospels, read any or all of them. Matt-21, Mark-11, Luke 19, John-12. There are a lot of different things taking place here, Jesus i... Read more

Exodus 40 The tabernacle complete

Saturday, March 28, 2015      0 comments

Read Exodus 40 We finish the book of Exodus with the completion of the tabernacle. They've been two years wandering since leaving Egypt. It doesn't say how long they worked on the tabernacle but it's interesting how they finished and set it... Read more

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
