Palm Sunday March 25, 2018 King James Mark 10
The disciple James is bold in what he asks the Lord. He is not afraid to seek glory for himself. He does not hesitate to bring about the demise of people who reject Jesus. How can Jesus change such thinking that goes squarely against the kingdom of grace? By going into Jerusalem and doing exactly what He came to do.

March 18, 2018 Dead Man Walking John 11
Like Mary and Martha, we all know the pain of the loss of a family member. We don’t expect death’s reversal to happen now but later. Jesus raised Lazarus back to life and as a result, Lazarus was almost killed for it. The miracle shows Jesus yields resurrection power and proves—despite the abundance of evidence to the contrary—that in Christ, life conquers death!

March 11, 2018 Snakes on a Plain Number 21
In a conversation with Nicodemus, Jesus reveals His place in a peculiar story from Israel’s wilderness years. What does the gospel have to do with grumbling, snakebitten Israelites? Tucked into this life and death story are themes of repentance, intercession and salvation. Whoever looked at the bronze serpent was saved, and so it is when one looks at the cross of Jesus with the eyes of faith.

March 4, 2018 The Right Kind of Fool 1 Corinthians 1
What does foolishness have to do with wisdom? What does weakness have to do with strength? One is better than the other, but in God’s economy it’s not the one we think it is! God ways are so counter-intuitive, we are left to marvel and boast in Him.
