“Children of God, Sinners, and Cheese Makers” 1 John 3 1-7

The King James Version of the Holy Bible renders 1 John 3:6 “Whosoever abideth in Him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen him, neither known Him.”  Wow! Strong words!  But if true, doesn’t that mean none of us truly abide in Him?
Perhaps other translations have it right, for instance, the English Standard Version of the same verse reads: “No one who abides in Him keeps on sinning; no one who keeps on sinning has either seen Him, or known Him.

“Walk In Light of the Resurrection” 1 John 1.1-2.2

Jesus’ redemptive work in this world is finished; He said so on the cross.  His resurrection sealed the deal.  Of course we still wait for the last day and the resurrection of all flesh and life in the world to come.  But now it is time for us to be at work.  We are the body of Christ now on this earth.  We are where people find God.  Our bodies are the temple of the Holy Spirit, and our hearts are the Holy of Holies where Christ dwells in us.
It is tim

“Saved From the Zombie Apocalypse” John 3 14-21

Get ready to hear the Gospel in a way you’ve probably never heard it before!
I don’t know if you’ve recognized it or not, but there has been a recent craze in regard to zombies.  Zombies in T.V. commercials, zombies in movies, even zombie television series are popular at the moment.  Surely you’ve seen some element of the recent spike in interest of the “undead.”
Well, to tell you the truth, reality is not too far off from some of this seemin

“Lions and Tigers and Bears, Oh My!” Mark 1 9-15

This week we look at Mark 1:9-15 and see how Jesus, once baptized was driven out into the desert with the wild beasts to be tempted by Satan.  Now, if you are familiar at all with the desert wilderness, you can imagine that Jesus’ temptations went beyond what is written.  His first temptation may well have been the beasts that roam the area. That 1st century desert apparently didn’t include tigers, but did included cheetahs, lions, vipers, and bears!

“We Share in His Glory” Mark 9 2-9

This week we remember the Transfiguration of Christ.  As Jesus gets closer to His crucifixion, He is led up a mountain where He meets Moses and Elijah and discusses His death.  While the apostles watch, He is transfigured before them, and glows dazzlingly white.
For a brief moment, Christ’s true glory shined through, that people might see Him as He is.  But the glory that belongs to Jesus never truly fades; and that glory is shared with us, for we are His

“We Need to Sort Out Our Priorities!” 1 Cor 9 16-27

There’s a line in J.K. Rowlings’ Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone where Hermione, the female among the three protagonists of the book, is speaking to Harry Potter and his best friend Ron Weasley and she warns, “Now, if you two don’t mind, I’m going to bed, before either of you come up with another clever idea to get us killed, or WORSE… expelled.”  To which Ron says, “She needs to sort out her priorities.”
I’m tempted to make the sam

“Love is Uncomplicated!” 1 Cor 8 1-13

At first glance, this title might seem laughable!  Maybe your mind goes back to the crazy drama that has surrounded your own relationships. Or you might conjure images of the dozens of magazines at the check-out line at the grocery store full of the complicated stories of love in this world!
True enough, but that’s the love that the world gives.  It’s not God’s love.  God’s love is not jealous, or envious; it doesn’t boast; it does not seek its ow
