2017-05-21 Follow Jesus

by

Follow Jesus “Come follow me.” Those three words turned fishermen into fishers of men. They turned greedy tax-collectors into generous donors. They turned forlorn prostitutes into redeemed Sunday School teachers. And they continue to transform lives 2,000 years later. But what does it mean to follow Jesus? To enter his kingdom? One story about Jesus […]

2017-05-14 Be a Kid as Long as You Can

by

BE A KID AS LONG AS YOU CAN For a mom who was really big on the importance of taking on responsibility and becoming a man, she had an admonition that has always challenged me in certain ways. She would tell me to “Be a kid as long as you can…adulthood will come all too […]

2017-05-07 Begin from Scratch

by

Begin from Scratch How many of us have worked on a project, over and over again, until we finally decide it is best to start from scratch? That could be what Jesus has in mind for all of us. We need to ditch our spiritual credentials (John 3:1-2; Phil 3:4-9), admit our spiritual blindness to […]

2017-04-30 Let Go of Everything

by

LET GO OF EVERYTHING This morning as we examine the question of how ordinary people like you and me enter the kingdom of God, we are going to be confronted with Jesus’ unequivocal demand to simply “let go of everything”… something much easier said than done. Ironically, Jesus who had very little going for him regarding […]

2017-04-16 Who Are You Looking For?

by

WHO ARE YOU LOOKING FOR? He is Risen! He is Risen, Indeed! These words resound in churches throughout the world today even when so many conclude that this position is utter nonsense (Ecclesiastes 8:5-6). Paul affirms that this gospel that proclaims not just death, but also resurrection saves us (1 Corinthians 15:1-2) from our own […]

2017-04-09 – Kingdom, Power, Glory

by

KINGDOM, POWER, GLORY On Palm Sunday in Jerusalem, some two thousand years ago, two great events were taking place at the simultaneously. On the western side of the city, Pilate and his entourage was riding into the city from his palace in Caesarea. Decked out in full military regalia, seated on a white horse and […]

2017-03-26 Forgive Our Trespasses

by

FORGIVE OUR TRESPASSES Today on the 4th Sunday of Lent, we are going to focus on a phrase of the Lord’s Prayer that we ignore at our own peril: “Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us” (Matthew 6:12, 14-15). It is a prayer that helps keep our spiritual slate clean […]

2017-03-19 Daily Bread

by

GIVE US THIS DAY OUR DAILY BREAD Today we are going to examine a portion of the Lord’s Prayer that may seem a bit unnecessary in the 21st century America: Give us this day our daily bread… Most of us are praying to take calories off rather than find ways to have them provided each […]

2017-03-12 Thy Will Be Done

by

THY WILL BE DONE Thy kingdom come / Thy will be done / on earth as it is in heaven… the centerpiece of the Lord’s Prayer… the focus of our year long series at HP. For gaining context we need to go back to the OT time when there was no earthly king or kingdom […]

2017-03-05 – Our Father

by

OUR FATHER Today is the first Sunday of Lent, a time to give up something for the one who gave everything up for us… the one who introduced us to life itself. Throughout the season of Lent I would like to take us phrase by phrase through the Lord’s Prayer… a model from someone devoted […]
