Christ is risen!

Listen Now! LISTEN HERE April 20, 2019 In solemn remembrance of the events of Holy Week, I have elected to forgo any of my comments so that full attention can be given to the Word of God....

Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a son/daughter.

Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner.

In the chaos of the Creator’s crucifixion comes the stunning revelation of who stands with who. Upside down is right side up now.

Jesus' words are true, trustworthy, and transformational. They are medicinal and miraculous.

It’s easy for a wealthy community leader to put in a fraction of a fraction of their wealth into the offering plate while having no idea that it costs the most impoverished among them everything they have to even participate.

Nobody sets out to ignore the poor. We just get caught up in all it takes to maintain our own "way of life."

Whenever God wants to initiate dramatic activity in Israel's midst, he begins with their worship practices.

As the Gospel began, the Son of God rode on the back of a donkey in the womb of his mother. Today he rides into Jerusalem on the back of a colt.

The only risk we never want to take is the risk of not risking at all.

Be careful how you read because it will determine how you lead.

Jesus is ever and always asking this question, “What do you want me to do for you?”

Maturity not only begins but continues with the confession that no matter how much we do grasp, there's far more that we don't.

Discipleship is about feeling the weight of the cross a bit, counting the cost, weighing allegiances, and making hard yet life-giving choices.

When we finally learn to value the least among us in the same way we value ourselves, then we will have entered the Kingdom of God.

The Kingdom of God will be in us now or it may never be in us at all.

The will of God can only be known by listening to the Word of God. Until we do that, our prayers are at best, wishes.
