The training wheels are coming off and the 12 disciples are sent out to preach and to heal.  But they can’t take a staff, a bag, any bread, any money, any extra clothes, or anything.  The results are so dramatic that the king who killed the former leader, wants to meet the present leader.  Feeding 5,000 men with 5 loaves and 2 fish is just an encore.

Posted on: March 27, 2018 at 9:13 am, in Standard Post

Levi (also called Matthew) did what he does best.  He threw a party for Jesus.  This party became the springboard for some radical teaching and radical behavior by Jesus.  Why couldn’t he just be a good, Jewish boy and create no problems for no one? (bad grammar intended)

Why do some churches grow and seem blessed while others stagnate and seem cursed?  Who is this Jesus who thrills, angers, and amazes?  The people who are supposed to know him best didn’t know him at all.  But his enemies did know him thoroughly.

Posted on: February 22, 2018 at 8:18 pm, in Standard Post


Death is a huge giant in the road that Jesus overcame for all of us.  Everyone has giant “Goliaths” that seem impossible to overcome and to reach our purpose in life.  Oh, did I tell you that Goliath really didn’t stand a chance against David from a military perspective?  David had superior weaponry and “principle of war” advantage.  And, so do we in rising to our purpose in life.
