Cornerstone Revisited (Ephesians 2:20-22)

    I think by now, most of us are familiar with our namesake verse from Ephesians 2:20-22. “having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus Himself being the cornerstone, in whom the whole building, being fitted together, is growing into a holy temple in the Lo…

Who is it You are Looking for? (John 20:11-18)

    One of my girls, I won’t say which one, gets into a lot of mischief. She’s well-meaning, just very curious and that curiosity sometimes leads her into sticky situations. Anytime she gets into something she’s not supposed to, I get down right at eye level with her and I ask her, “Did you get …

Saturday Holy Week Devotion

    Good morning, and welcome to our last Holy Week devotion. I do hope you’ll join us for service tomorrow, Resurrection Sunday, as we celebrate the resurrection of Christ and what that means for those who follow Him. Today is an interesting day in Holy Week because there is little to no record…

Friday Holy Week Devotion

    Good morning, and welcome to Good Friday. It still seems odd to me that we use the term “good” to describe today. It really seems more like it should be “Black Friday”, but that of course has a different meaning to us. This day—the day we look at the crucifixion of Christ doesn’t seem very g…

Wednesday Holy Week Devotion

    Good morning, and welcome to the Wednesday devotion for Holy Week, as we walk with Jesus from Palm Sunday to Resurrection Sunday. Today’s passage is in John 13:21-30, and 36-38. It’s a passage about betrayal. Betrayal is heart wrenching. If you’ve ever experience betrayal, it probably affect…

Tuesday Holy Week Devotion

    Good morning, and happy Tuesday! Today’s devotional reading as we walk through Holy Week takes us to another table of those Jesus spent a significant amount of days with, those whom we read that He loved and considered His own. Listen to John 13:1-17:
    “It was just before the Pass…

Monday Holy Week Devotion

    Yesterday in our church service we talked about Palm Sunday and that even as Jesus was coming into Jerusalem, being celebrated and lauded as the King, He knew that the cost of following the Father would require that He sacrifice all of Himself.
    We start today, by looking at a story t…

Discipleship is Costly (Matthew 16:24-26)

    Happy Palm Sunday! Today is the day in the Christian church when we remember that Christ is not only our priest, He is not only our prophet, but He is also our King! Though His Kingship did not come with an earthly crown made out of gold, or rich robes of purple. His Kingship did not come wi…

The Sin of Partiality (James 2:1-13)

    This is one of my favorite bands. If you know who this is, don’t say anything, but if you don’t know who this is, what might you be thinking about me right now? Maybe something like, “Really, Pastor?” Or maybe, “Is that okay? That doesn’t look like a very good band…” At worst maybe, “It’s wr…
