God's Faithfulness Gives Life

Recap

Deep in their grief, the women went to the tomb to finish preparing Jesus’ body for burial. They should have known better, their efforts, though beautifully loving, were unnecessary. Jesus is alive! The tomb is empty! The angels reminded them of the words Jesus told them, how he’d be handed over to sinful men, crucified, died, buried, but on the third day he’d rise from the dead.

The disciples, the Eleven, didn’t believe the women. Peter checked it out for himself. They were right, they told the truth. Jesus body wasn’t there. He began to wonder. Together the disciples started putting the pieces in place. Jesus is alive!

God's Faithfulness Produces Reconciliation

Recap

On Sunday, we talked about Luke 15:1-3, 11-32, the parable of the lost son. Sunday marked the fourth Sunday in Lent. In today’s text we looked at the familiar parable of the lost son. And while many of us have heard this story countless times from Sunday school to many sermons over the years; it is our hope your hearts and minds can be opened as you dive into various other texts connecting to this parable.

God's Faithful Strength

Recap

The Pharisees warned Jesus that He was in danger from Herod. They told Him if He didn’t stop doing what He was doing, Herod would kill Him. But Jesus refused to listen to them and continued to do what God called Him to do. Jesus was confident in His Father’s promises, given in the past. Jesus knew that the Father’s faithful strength would carry Him through whatever He faced. In fact, Jesus longed to gather all of God’s people into God’s protective care. But people are stubborn, and they refuse to find shelter in God.

Jesus faced His suffering head-on. In our North American culture, we don’t like to think or talk about struggles or suffering. Additionally, we can strive after things that give us comfort, but in the end don’t really help us at all. We need to face suffering and struggles with confidence in God. God’s faithful strength lifts us up when we are tired and weak. God gives us the grace to demonstrate his loving care, even as we suffer, in caring for others.

Temptation

Recap

On Sunday, we talked about Luke 4:1-13.  Sunday marked the first Sunday in Lent. We are a people who want things right now and we fall into the temptation of the devil that says we deserve everything.  It’s difficult in this culture to be different and lean on God for everything. As you read your Bible this week and the texts below, think about what God is calling to you to this season of Lent.

Transfiguration

Recap

Jesus took Peter, John, and James with him up a mountain to pray. While Jesus was praying (the disciples fell asleep—foreshadowing to the night Jesus was betrayed) his face changed and his clothes became as bright as a flash of lightning. Moses and Elijah appeared with him. The disciples woke up and couldn’t believe what they were seeing! Moses and Elijah encouraged Jesus for what he was about to do (be crucified on a cross to pay for the sins of the world). Then God the Father spoke from the cloud and said, “This is my Son, whom I have chosen; listen to him.”

Jesus is God’s Son. Jesus is the Christ, the Messiah, who takes away the sins of the world.

Behaving Generously

On Sunday, we talked about Luke 6:27-38.  Love our enemies? Do good to people who hate us? Bless people who curse us? Pray for people that mistreat us? That is counter cultural. It is probably easier to throw hate back at those who hate us, or repay curses for curses. We like to live in our sinful nature, what Pastor Paul called the old economy. But because of Jesus and his atoning death on the cross and glorious resurrection we are called to live in a new economy, one in which we live out the words of Luke 6:27-38. Is that easy? No way! Take time this week to read through the following text. Reflect on the counter cultural way God calls us to live.
