• Blind & Afraid - Luke 9.43-45

    In today’s story, the disciples could only see the short game -- they, along with the crowd, were throwing a party because of the miracle Jesus had just done, but they didn’t see the long game.  They did not realize that there was a bigger miracle in store -- the resurrection; and that the only path to the resurrection was the cross of suffering and shame. Jesus tried to tell them, but they were too blind and afraid to see.

  • Faithless and Perverse - Luke 9.37-43

    When Jesus comes down from the mountain, He immediately gets hit with trouble. And so it is with us most of the time. You get blessed in your morning time of Bible study and prayer only to get walloped at work half an hour later. Or you come back from a retreat only to get slapped with strife at home. We must remember that the God we meet on the mountain will also give us victory in the valley.
