Journey to the Cross: Day 7: Saturday

Holy Saturday….Black Saturday…. On our journey with Jesus we come to Saturday, which very well would have been the most hopeless day for those who loved and followed Jesus.  Yes, Good Friday was bad, but I believe deep down Jesus followers believed He would somehow take Himself off the cross.  Their hope is now shattered. Do you think as they gathered a mourned together some … Continue reading Journey to the Cross: Day 7: Saturday

Journey to the Cross: Day 5: Maundy Thursday

Maundy Thursday, the day we celebrate the last supper.  It is also day 5 of Holy Week where not only the last supper took place, but the night Jesus was betrayed and arrested. There is so much material to cover here.  I cannot adequately cover such a monumental day.  I have included some links so that you may examine many aspects of this day on … Continue reading Journey to the Cross: Day 5: Maundy Thursday

Journey To The Cross: Day 4: Holy Wednesday

Today is day four in our journey.  This is the day my heart usually starts to ache for Jesus.      Like Jesus, we too know, what is coming; yet how can we possibly understand? Today, Wednesday, is a little bit lighter for Jesus.  For a run down on what was done this day, take a look at Mark 14: 1-9: 14 After two days it … Continue reading Journey To The Cross: Day 4: Holy Wednesday

Journey to the Cross: Day 3: Holy Tuesday

Thank you for joining us today as we retrace the last steps of Jesus. Holy Tuesday was a very busy day for Jesus.  The bulk of His final teachings come on this day.  So much teaching, I will not be able to cover all of it here.  I have added links to my posts in an old series I wrote on Holy Week.  I encourage … Continue reading Journey to the Cross: Day 3: Holy Tuesday

40 Days of Jesus: Day One

The time of Lent is upon us.  Celebrating the season of Lent is still fairly new to me.  I used to think that it was something only Catholics did, but when I joined a Methodist Church I was delightfully introduced to the celebration.  While I no longer attend a Methodist church, I continue to celebrate the season as it has become an integral part of … Continue reading 40 Days of Jesus: Day One

Meditation Monday: An Attitude of Humility

Yes, I know I am a day late, but better late than never. Philippians 2:3-4 (NKJ): 3 Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. 4 Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others. The world screams for us to look out for number … Continue reading Meditation Monday: An Attitude of Humility

Sometimes We Have to Feed the Greedy To Reach the Truly Needy

Today, this Thankful Thursday, I am grateful for God’s gentle reminders/nudges. Have you ever been approached by a stranger asking for money and you are not sure what to do?  After all,  you don’t want to be gullible and fall victim to a con man, right? I faced this dilemma earlier this week…in a sort of amusing way. I was out grocery shopping.  I was … Continue reading Sometimes We Have to Feed the Greedy To Reach the Truly Needy

Meditation Monday:Desire Conceived Gives Birth to Sin

James 1:14 But each one is tempted when he is drawn away by his own desires and enticed. 15 Then, when desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; Here we are warned that our own desires will tempt us.  Those desires first appear as thoughts and feelings.  Those things are not sin until we stop to think upon them, yield to those desires instead of resist … Continue reading Meditation Monday:Desire Conceived Gives Birth to Sin

Don’t Let Your Walk Become Fifty Shades Darker

Ugg.  The sickness has hit my house this week.  We are on the mend, but I am a little behind on blogging.  As it is Thursday, I won’t begin my new series on sexual integrity until next week, but here’s something that needs to be said today. Please be warned, this is a little harsh.  I tried to write this in a non-offensive manner (seriously, I … Continue reading Don’t Let Your Walk Become Fifty Shades Darker
