The Cross

He was a man. He is God. His actions demonstrate the greatest extent of God’s love. His strength proves the ultimate power in any circumstance. In the deepest despair and in the darkest of anguish comes the utmost hope, the brightest light and the strongest example of love. Jesus on the cross.

SCRIPTURE

Luke 23:46 –

Jesus called out with a loud voice, “Father, into your hands I commit my spirit.” When he had said this, he breathed his last.

With a Kiss

The name Judas carries such strong negative feelings.  Today I read of a close friend who had confided in an older man only to learn the older man didn’t keep the story to himself.  My friend was quick to refer to the older gentleman as “Judas”.  Judas, though two thousand years ago, still brings back all the hurt and emotion we’ve ever felt in our bitter betrayal stories.

This week, we will see that despite any reason or rationale, Judas actions were so hurtful and damaging particularly because of HOW he did what he did.  Take a look at the ugliest story with the greatest ending.  You will be amazed at where you find yourself in this story.  It is not where you think!

SCRIPTURE

Matthew 26:48-50 –

Now the betrayer had arranged a signal with them: “The one I kiss is the man; arrest him.”  Going at once to Jesus, Judas said, “Greetings, Rabbi!” and kissed him.  Jesus replied, “Do what you came for, friend.” Then the men stepped forward, seized Jesus and arrested him.

Life with JESUS

Join us for a look at two significant Biblical characters; one light, the other in the shadows.  Jesus and Judas.  Have you ever stopped to think why would Judas would commit such a heinous act?  Once a follower, now traitor. 

The fall of Judas reveals the tragic truth of mankind.  We are capable of looking God in the eyes and turning our backs on all that he offers.  We will learn from the past or blindly repeat history?

SCRIPTURE

Matthew 26:14-16 –

Then Judas Iscariot, one of the twelve disciples, went to the leading priests and asked, “How much will you pay me to betray Jesus to you?” And they gave him thirty pieces of silver.  From that time on, Judas began looking for an opportunity to betray Jesus.

Babel

You’ve never seen a Bible story like this, though you’ve probably heard it before.  There is something distinct in this one.  It is missing something.  Yet, you know it belongs among the often-told stories of the Bible.  The Tower of Babel tells a story for all to hear.  The familiar point in this story is you and your experience.  Notice how this story reflects you.

SCRIPTURE

Genesis11:9 – That is why it was called Babel–because there the LORD confused the language of the whole world. From there the LORD scattered them over the face of the whole earth.

The Fall

What were you thinking?!  Have you ever asked a child that when they did something so unthinkable?  Maybe you’ve had one of those moments where you drift off in thought and miss all that was said, or a street you were supposed to turn on, or the person you were supposed to pick up!  Looking at the Garden of Eden, soon after Adam and Eve were created, there was a moment that is similar.  I would love to have been an investigative reporter on the scene of Eve and Adam eating the forbidden fruit, their run away attempt and the conversation with God afterwards.  Eve, what were you thinking?!  Adam, how could you?!  The trade they made seems so unfortunate… yet my past is littered with equally, if not poorer transactions, or should we say transgressions.

SCRIPTURE

Genesis 3:6 –

When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it.
