Fools and Their Traditions

Hand Washing Rituals – Luke 11:37-41 Opening Thoughts: I’m going to start tonight by saying that Danae and I appreciate all of you that have been reading our material and posting your wonderful comments. It is encouraging to hear someone say, “What you wrote really spoke to me and has caused me to study the Word more”. What we hope not to hear is, “This is great, now I can just read your blogs and forget about reading my Bible!” Isn’t this what has actually happened in much of our church culture these days? We read books, articles, blogs, Twitter updates, Facebook Status updates and more, yet so many people don’t actually read their own Bibles. In many ways we’ve become more like cult followers rather than Christian Disciples. We have people read our Bibles to us and shed their opinions, then we can either agree or disagree according to […]

Woe to You Pharisees Part 1 – Tithing

Luke 11:41 – Woe to You Opening Thoughts: Have you ever been in the situation where you have been invited over to someones house for dinner and there is ongoing friction between you? Is it hard to enjoy yourself or even keep your cool for that matter? Let’s see what Jesus does. For those of you who are reading in for the first time I will set a bit of a background to the text. Jesus was invited to one of the Pharisees homes to eat. However He quickly stirred up a hornets nest when he failed to follow the traditions of men by way of ceremonial hand washing. Jesus purposely stirred things up so that He could point out areas of hypocrisy, how’s that for a meal with Jesus? Once the ice has been broken Jesus begins to pronounce woes on them along with revealing their sin. Luke 11:42 […]

How Great is the Darkness?

If the Light in You is Darkness – Luke 11:33-36 Opening Thoughts: About 14 years ago my brother-in-law was new to our family, he moved to our town from up north. One day we were out at a restaurant eating nachos and he asked me which ones were the jalapenos and which ones were the olives. He knew that jalapenos were hot and he didn’t like hot food. He hadn’t eaten either before and didn’t have a clue what was what. So, like a good brother-in-law, I told him that the green ones with seeds were the olives and the black ones were the jalapenos and that he should stay away from those. He then proceeded to fill his mouth with what he thought were olives but turned out to be the dreaded jalapenos. His eyes were soon opened to the truth and he would be sure to never make […]

Sleepy Christians

Jesus Praying in the Garden Matthew 26:40-46 Jesus found them Sleeping… I have an eight week old baby. Have you ever heard the saying “I slept like a baby”? I guarantee you it does not mean that you slept well. For me it means going to bed at 11:30pm for a two and a half hour nap, waking up to feed the baby in my sleep, then laying back down for another three and a half hour nap before getting up again to feed the baby and then starting my day. With a five year old and an “almost” two year old ready to take on the world at 6:30am each morning and then a flurry of activities ranging from homeschooling to cooking meals to swimming lessons, etc. I am utterly exhausted by the time we land on the couch at night once the kids are all tucked nicely in […]

A Mob Sent by God

Matthew 26:47-56 K.P. Yohannan: This past Sunday my husband Shane and I visited another church so that we could listen to brother K.P. Yohannan, founder of the ministry Gospel for Asia, speak. We have heard him preach online and I’ve begun to read his book “Revolution in World Missions“, but we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to meet him in person. He is a dear friend to our dear friends at Living Waters Ministry and so even though we had never met before we feel great love for him and we love his ministry. During the service he shared several stories of the suffering people in India, in particular. One story at the end though really wrenched my heart because it was about a five year old boy that he had seen on the front cover of a local newspaper who was photographed lying on his side on the street […]

Clean but not Washed.

Seven More Evil Spirits Worse Than Him — Luke 11:24-26 Opening Thoughts: Today was a very normal day around our house. My wife was up several times in the night with Kate, who is now 6 weeks old, I slept through most of it. This morning I got up with the two youngsters, Max and Sarah, as I usually do. They seem to have a built in alarm clock for 6:45 am, oh how I wish it was at least 7:45 am, but it’s not. It doesn’t even seem to matter when they go to bed, the moment that clock hits 6:45 am, they start shouting from the bedroom. Back to my story:-) I had breakfast with them as usual, then when Danae and Kate got up I headed off to my office (Starbucks). After a day of work I headed to pick up Danae and the kids for Max’s […]

Blessed are Those Who Hear the Words and Keep it!

Blessed is the Womb that Bore You — Luke 11:27-28 Opening Thoughts: Have you ever been at a conference or a service where the speaker asks people in attendance to “Quickly shout out an answer to their question” or in one sentence explain it… You start to sweat because you really want to say something, because in your opinion you have the 100% correct answer to the question. You hear several people give their answers and they sound pretty good, but you know you can top it if you can just get the courage. You finally go for it, you stand up and blurt it out! Everyone turns to look and the pastor immediately says “that’s not exactly what I was thinking”, Ouch! Or how about this, I was in a service one time when a guy in the middle of the service stood up and walked onto to the […]

Bench Warmers for JESUS!

Jesus Casts out the MUTE Demon – Luke 11:14-23 Opening Thoughts: For those who are tracking along through my study in Luke, welcome back! For those of you who are jumping in for the first time, welcome aboard. My wife Danae and I are so grateful to be used of God by way of studying the Word and blogging it out. Our hope is that in some way we can be a tool to help prepare the way for the kingdom of God in the hearts of those God has called. We pray that as you read you too will be challenged to open your Bible and carefully digest all that is written,  and ultimately be challenged, convicted, and changed for the Glory of God! Today’s text is taken from Luke 11:14-23 In this text you will find that Jesus performs a miracle that is very significant in pointing to […]

Ask, Seek, Knock – Luke 11:9-13

Knock and it will be opened – Luke 11:9-13 Opening Thoughts: Many of you that are following our blog will notice that we have attempted to be faithful to our daily posts but have come up seriously short this past little while. Our desire is to blog daily but good intentions are often interrupted by the most wonderful things in the world “children”. We have 3 wonderful kids and I can’t imagine life without them, but these little people are many times why we don’t get around to blogging. Their regular bedtime is 7pm and by the time we close the door to their room it’s often 7:30. Then there’s the “Mommy & Daddy, can I have a drink?” questions…. or the “I have to use the bathroom!” requests. Being a parent is super tough, there has to be a limit right? I mean by the 4th request for a […]

People You Can’t Stand

Jesus places the people you can’t stand at the front of your neighbor list! Opening Thoughts: I want you to be totally honest with yourself on this question. Have you ever hated someone? Or maybe hate would be too strong of a word. So maybe you have strongly disliked someone even to the point that when someone else is talking about that person it makes you feel upset and uncomfortable? I’ve been there, and I’ve had to repent and ask God to flood my heart with grace many times. The Jews felt this way about the Samaritans. Below is some interesting information that will paint a picture for you as to why the Jews strongly disliked (hated) them. INFO: Through Samaria was the usual route taken by travelers from Judea to Galilee, though strict Jews, in order to avoid defilement, could bypass Samaria by opting for a longer route that […]
