Easter Sunday 3/31/24

The women went early to the tomb to finish embalming the body of Christ. They loved Jesus, but they like the disciples did not remember the words that Jesus had spoken that He would rise again. They had fully expected Him to be lying lifeless in the tomb, secured in place by the large stone at the mouth of the tomb. They had no idea the wonderful news that they would receive that day!

Easter Vigil 3/30/24

His family was safely sleeping at home, which gave the watchman solace as he walked the city walls at night. But it was dark and cold. It was mostly quiet. All night long he struggled with the tension between sleepiness from the quiet and anxiousness from the little sounds coming from the darkness. Yet, he has to remain vigil. He was the watchman.

Good Friday 3/29/24

On Mt. Sinai, God instructed Moses to construct the Tabernacle. Made of wood, linen, and gold and other metals, the Tabernacle would be the place of God’s earthly presence among His people.

And so as the Israelites are preparing to leave their homes into a wilderness to gain freedom from their enemies all the while while death is taking place all around them, what does God say, “Let’s eat!”

Palm Sunday / 3-24-24

Children are often associated with this special service of the Church Year. Now, children are mentioned no where in any of Scripture’s Palm Sunday accounts. Yet, in Matthew’s gospel, after Jesus had entered Jerusalem, we find the blind and lame coming to Jesus for healing, and Matthew records that the children were crying out “Hosanna to the Son of David!”—

Lent 5 / 3-17-24

But what if those words were true? Are not the words that Paul said about himself true, “What a wretch that I am!” Are we not speaking truth when we say those words? What if
my brother wrote those words down. The world says, “Oh no no no, don’t say that about yourself.” “You’re a good person,” and on and God.” 48 Then the Jews answered and said to Him, “Do we not say rightly that You are a Samaritan and have a demon?”
