There’s a reason most do not gravitate to Mark’s Easter Morning account. For truly (in its original form) the story feels “unfinished”. The story doesn’t reveal the ending, but leaves us hanging. And so we are left to wonder what changed? What took fearful and silent followers of the slain master, and led them to exuberant and courageous joy? How did resurrection change them? How does it change us?…


"He Emptied Himself"

Theme: As believers, our praise joined with those who wave palms is not simply optimistic. We don’t just hope for something good to come from Jesus. We already know, that the path of servant-hood he has chosen IS the source of our hope!…


"Whomever Serves Me..."

The race we run is not to achieve salvation, but to respond to it!…


"Foolishness or Good News?"

The scene on John 2 is unsettling. Jesus is overturning tables and more! In plain sight of the Temple, he proclaims an audacious claim. That claim, Paul contends, is foolishness to the world, but wisdom to those who hear its truth revealed on the cross.…


"Taking Up His Cross"

play

We learn in the Genesis story that both Abram and Sarai get a name change along with a promise from God. They were no longer who they had been before. The promise brought with it a profound change. Jesus’ challenging words in Mark 8 remind us that those who would follow him must be willing to be changed as well. Specifically, they must release their grip on self in order to take hold of his cross and what it promises.…
