The Sin of Babel

by davidprill1

3 They said to each other, “Let’s make bricks and bake them to make them hard.” So they used bricks instead of stones, and tar instead of mortar. 4 Then they said to each other, “Let’s build for ourselves a city and a tower. And let’s make the top of the tower reach high into the sky. […]

Chosen!

by davidprill1

I’ve recently been filled with such joy as I’ve been thinking about God.  He has chosen me.  In 1 Peter 1:1 we are called the “chosen/elect” people of God. In Colossians 3:12 we are God’s chosen ones, holy and loved! 1 Thessalonians 1:4?  Same thing! Ephesians 1:11 God CHOSE us – just because he wanted […]

Things I Learned (at VBS)

by davidprill1

Things I learned at Vacation Bible School. Jesus Rescues – It was, after all, the theme of the week. And it’s a lesson I’ve learned before.  But, it’s a lesson I need to learn again (and again!).  I know that I need to be rescued.  There is so much sin and garbage in my heart. […]

Down the Mountain

by davidprill1

Luke 6:12-19 If you’ve been around Resurrection much lately you’ve probably heard about how Jesus has three types of relationships. He had a relationship with God the Father.

Just a Word

by davidprill1

By the word of the Lord the heavens were made,     and by the breath of his mouth all their host. He gathers the waters of the sea as a heap;     he puts the deeps in storehouses. Psalm 33:6-7   I’ve been considering Psalm 33 in my own devotional life the last couple of days.  It […]

Jesus’ Plan

“You saw these things happen—you are witnesses. You must tell people to change their hearts and lives. If they do this, their sins will be forgiven. You must start at Jerusalem and preach these things in my name to all nations.  Listen! My Father has promised you something; I will send it to you. But […]

Holy Week: What to expect

by davidprill1

Holy Week: What to expect Holy week is a very important week.  It’s the week that we walk through the story of Jesus’ last week of life.  The gospels are fast, fast, fast through the first 3 years of the life of Jesus.  And then – they slow down – to a crawl – with […]

Lent. What is it?

by davidprill1

Lent. I could fill your brain with all kinds of information about the word.  Where it originates and how it came to be such a big deal in the church. But you don’t really need to know all of that (at least in my opinion).  If you are curious make google your friend. In short, […]
