Faith without Action is Dead

You ever feel frustrated, frustrated with yourself, frustrated with others? Well, that is where I find myself right now: Frustrated. Pinpointing the exact cause for my frustration hasn’t been easy, but I think the underlying cause to both is lack of action. For awhile I was convinced it was a lack of faith or belief, but after reading Today’s Neil Anderson Devotional and prayer, I … Continue reading Faith without Action is Dead

Holy Week: Day 6 (It’s Friday….but Sunday’s Coming)

I absolutely love this song. This morning I am putting everything aside and making a conscience effort to remember what happened today all those years ago; the sacrifice that was made and the price that was paid. I encourage you all to do the same. As a kid I never understood why this day was called “Good” Friday. Now that I am older, I get … Continue reading Holy Week: Day 6 (It’s Friday….but Sunday’s Coming)

It is all … Continue reading Holy Week: Day 5: The Last Supper (Part 1)

Holy Week: Day 3 (Part 4 of 4)

Holy Week:Day 3: Tuesday (con’t) Mark 14:1-10(NIV): Now the Passover and the Festival of Unleavened Bread were only two days away, and the chief priests and the teachers of the law were scheming to arrest Jesus secretly and kill him. 2 “But not during the festival,” they said, “or the people may riot.” [Okay, this shows us that it is still Tuesday because the Passover … Continue reading Holy Week: Day 3 (Part 4 of 4)

Holy Week: Day 3 (Part 3)

Holy Week: Day 3: Tuesday (con’t) For some this may seem unnecessary, but I feel it is very important that we look at all of Jesus’ teaching and happenings during his final week. Yes, in this post there is a lot of scripture and not a whole lot of commentary; however, I think the scriptures explain it adequately enough and my comments just distract from … Continue reading Holy Week: Day 3 (Part 3)

Holy Week: Day 3: Tuesday (Part 2)

Holy Week: Day 3: Tuesday (con’t) Yesterday we began talking about what happened on the last Tuesday before Jesus’ death. We also began looking closely at what He taught. It is my belief that Jesus would have wanted to hit on the most important points of His ministry. Yesterday we saw how Jesus used many parables to show how important it was to accept Jesus … Continue reading Holy Week: Day 3: Tuesday (Part 2)
