Most of us are familiar with the story of Palm Sunday, and the king's welcome from the crowd gave to Jesus by waving palm branches shouting 'hosanna' as he entered Jerusalem on the Sunday before his crucifixion. The question is, do you know why this is an important story? Even more important than the question of what it meant to the crowd then, is the question, what does it mean for you now?

In John the first part of chapter 7 of his Gospel, John identifies various groups of people as those who didn’t believe in Jesus. But it’s not the non-religious who are called out for their unbelief, but the religious and the people who were following Jesus as seemed to be his supporters. Through this teaching he forces us to rethink what it really means to believe in Jesus.

In the beginning of John 6, thousands of people were excitedly following Jesus, but by the end of the chapter, as the result of his difficult and challenging teaching, nearly the whole crowd had deserted him. The disciples stayed not because they were less offended by Jesus words, but because they knew that while his words were difficult, they were true - and thus what they needed -and what we need- to hear.

I Am - Week 6: The Bread of Life (John 6:25-59)

I Am - Week 6: The Bread of Life (John 6:25-59)

In John 6:35 Jesus said, "I am the bread of life"- he is the source of life. But the life Jesus is talking about isn't physical life, but he is teaching that he is the source of living - of quality in life. He is teaching that just as we need food to give us the nutrients to thrive physically, in the same way a relationship with Jesus is the source of meaning and gladness that makes like not only survivable, but meaningful and enjoyable.

How To Study The Bible - Week 4: Guidelines for Daily Devotional Reading pt.2

How To Study The Bible - Week 4: Guidelines for Daily Devotional Reading pt.2

March 18, 2019

 As believers, it is vital that our commitment to God’s Word goes beyond what others teach us, but that we each seek to “Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a workman who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.” (2 Timothy 2:15). A key part of this is our personal devotional reading. While we may miss days from time to time, ideally each of us are committed to seeking to spend time every day reading and studying God’s Word. While these ideas will not instantly unlock every truth contained in the Bible, hopefully they will help make it a little easier to understand the Bible’s teaching in personal study.
