Happy Easter Sunday!

He arose! May the following words of truth fall sweetly upon your ears this morning. 

And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons. ... Unto Adam also and to his wife did the Lord God make coats of skins, and clothed them. – Genesis 3:7, 21

But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. – Isaiah 53:5

The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, to preach the acceptable year of the Lord. – Luke 4:18-19

Musings on Palm Sunday

Musings on Palm Sunday

This coming Sunday is Palm Sunday, generally celebrated by the Christian world as the day Jesus triumphantly entered Jerusalem as described in Matthew 21, Mark 11, Luke 19, and John 12. This was also just a few days before He was crucified.

When Jesus entered the city, many came and shouted, “Hosanna: Blessed is the King of Israel that cometh in the name of the Lord!” They took branches of palm trees (hence the name Palm Sunday) and laid them before Him to create a “red carpet” of sorts for the King. It’s amazing how just a few days later many of the Jews, not all and probably not many (if any) of those celebrating here, were found chanting, “Crucify him!” to the Jewish leadership and Pilate.

Love, Oh, What Love

Love, Oh, What Love

Happy Valentine's Day — the "day of love." Although many probably roll their eyes at this made-up holiday that seems to only benefit card stores, florists, and candy shops, love is arguably the most important thing in our lives. Yes, we need food, clothing, and shelter, but love is that transcending value that is vitally important to us, both naturally and spiritually.

Love takes several forms, including romantic love, brotherly/friendship-type love of mankind, and love of family. Have you ever thought about living without love, any kind of it? What would life be like?

Pay It Forward Day Is April 28

Pay It Forward Day Is April 28

One Friday morning, after a long, challenging week, I ordered a cup of coffee at a drive-through. When I attempted to pay, the cashier said, “The car in front of you took care of it.” Tears came to my eyes. I can’t tell you how much of a boost (better than caffeine) that was for me. This kind gesture lifted my spirits immensely and carried me through the day.
