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. He goes UP a mountain to pray.  He prays all night.  He wants to connect.  He wants to receive guidance.  He wants to hear the Father’s voice. […]

1 Peter

by davidprill1

1 Peter is really an awesome book of the Bible and this will be a great journey for us at Resurrection!  Peter writes to the elect exiles.  He writes to encourage and comfort them through life’s struggles.  He writes to reveal the true grace of God (just wait for those sections when he talks about […]

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, […]

Lent: Ways to Practice

by davidprill1

Lent is church season meant prepare our hearts and minds for Easter morning.  Easter is the single greatest day ever and we want to take some time to prepare ourselves mentally and emotionally for that great day. Daily devotional. A devotion is intentional time set aside each day.  The time is meant to refocus our […]

Too Little

by davidprill1

First I read it in one devotional book.  From “Breakfast with Jesus” (By Greg Laurie). “Jesus asked his disciples for what they had, regardless of how little it seemed.  … Do you believe that Jesus can meet your needs, even when it seems impossible.” Those were good thoughts.  Helpful.  Encouraging.  Then – a couple of […]

“Open” Sermon Series

by davidprill1

What does it mean to live in a way that is open to God’s work in us, through us and for the world around us?  This series tries to consider that question as we journey through several Old Testament people (mostly prophets).  These people all responded in an open, willing and incredible way to what […]
