• 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.
