Witnesses of God’s Love

Scripture: Luke 24:44-49Jesus said to them, "These are my words that I spoke to you while I was still with youthat everything written about me in the Law from Moses, the Prophets, and the Psalms must be fulfilled."

April 3 Lenten Devotional

Hebrews 2: 10-11It was appropriate for God, for whom and through whom everything exists, to use experiences of suffering to make perfect the pioneer of salvation. This salvation belongs to many sons and daughters whom he's leading to glory. This is because the one who makes people holy and the people who are being made holy all come from one source. That is why Jesus isn't...

Food For Our Souls

Scripture: Matthew 26:26-29 (CEB)While they were eating, Jesus took bread, blessed it, broke it, and gave it to the disciples and said, "Take and eat. This is my body."

Suffering and Great Love

Scripture: Isaiah 53:3-7He was despised and rejected by mankind, a man of suffering, and familiar with pain. Like one from whom people hide their faces he was despised, and we held him in low esteem. Surely he took up our pain and bore our suffering, yet we considered him punished by God, stricken by him, and afflicted. But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was cru...

Strength in Weakness

Scripture: 2 Corinthians 4:7-9 (CEB)But we have this treasure in clay pots so that the awesome power belongs to God and doesn't come from us. We are experiencing all kinds of trouble, but we aren't crushed. We are confused, but we aren't depressed. We are harassed, but we aren't abandoned. We are knocked down, but we aren't knocked out. We always carry Jesus' death around...

Don’t Go to Sleep!

Scripture: Matthew 26:36,38 and 40 (See in the devotion) Lenten preparation is a focus on a future event . . . but, it's a future event that has already happened. When I was in my mid-40's I began to obsess about the Resurrection. It wasn't Lent or the Easter seasons when that started. Just out of the blue this thought would arise in my mind, "Marvin, if you accepted the ...

The Everyday Moments

Luke 19:29-40 CEBAs Jesus came to Bethphage and Bethany on the Mount of Olives, he gave two disciples a task. He said, "Go into the village over there. When you enter it, you will find tied up there a colt that no one has ever ridden. Untie it and bring it here. If anyone asks, 'Why are you untying it?' just say, 'Its master needs it.'" Those who had been sent found it exa...

The Abundant Life

Scripture: John 10:9-10I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture. The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly. Whenever someone engages me in a conversation about my career path, they end up giving me a very confus...

The Never Fading Glory of Christ

Scripture: Psalm 34:4-5, NIVI sought the Lord, and he answered me; he delivered me from all my fears. Those who look to him are radiant; their faces are never covered with shame. Here we are at the end of March 2021. Where are you God? We're eagerly looking for signs of rebirth after the spring equinox. We're waiting for lockdowns, masking, and our 'shrouds of social isol...
