A Weekly Word from John
What's in Your Luggage?

07/27/2014  What's in Your Luggage?: Hebrews 12:1-3

baggageTravel light. It’s a lesson I am learning in my life. The more baggage we have, the more we worry and the more it slows us down. In the race of life, God has designed our path with markers along the way. He wants us to run unencumbered. He reminds us that living by faith has been modeled by a cloud of witnesses who have gone before us. They put aside the excess ‘weight’ and avoided the sins that could have so easily entangled them. Never perfect. But always persevering.

The Revolution

 

06/15/2014  The Revolution: Acts 17:6

 

signingJealousy can make us do strange things. For the Jewish leaders, in the time of Jesus and the apostles, it forced truth to be suppressed and self-glory sought.

07/20/2014  Wonderfully Weird: Ephesians 2:10

Wierd AnimalsWonderfully weird may seem like a contradiction of terms. In the Vacation Bible School (VBS) language of this past week, the focus was on just how each child is unique and God loves each one of us unconditionally with all our personalities, passions, preferences and situations. The missionary-apostle Paul writing to the Ephesian churches underscored the fact that individually and corporately, in Christ, we are God’s masterpiece, created in Christ for good works prepared by Him for His world and His glory.

Hey Jude

 

06/15/2014  Hey Jude - Contned for the Faith: The Book of Jude

brakeThere will be storms. There will be conflict. We don’t want to go toe to toe but there are times that we must. Initially, Jude was writing a letter to communicate about the salvation that we have in common. But, he stopped, pulled the emergency brake and came to a screeching halt and turned the car.

God Made Dads

06/15/2014  God Made Dads: Proverbs 10:1

god made dadsFatherhood began with God, The Father. He presents us with this image. Jesus, the Son of God, referred often to his heavenly ‘father’. The gospel invites us to come under his Fatherhood and experience his love, mercy and grace through faith in Christ, the Son. He does not hesitate to correct us because He loves us too much. But his correction is always done in hope. He wants us to ‘grow up’ in the faith.
