Mediator

by

Reading: Hebrews 9:11-22 Dear Friends, A mediator is: “a person who attempts to make people involved in a conflict come to an agreement; a go-between.” That definition gives a hint at what the writer of the Hebrews is talking about – but it falls terribly short.  Jesus is THE mediator!  Let’s rejoice together today! Peace, Pastor Dave

Different and Better

by

Reading: Hebrews 7:23-28 Dear Friends, The author is trying to draw out for us all the ways that Jesus is different and better than anything else ever was before or ever would be after Him. His goal is to get you to turn to Jesus – first! – whenever you need help. Peace, Pastor Dave

Throne Of Grace

by

Reading: Hebrews 4:14-16 Dear Friends, Have you ever thought about this phrase?  It’s full of tension.  When we think “throne” we think power.  Authority.  We are  intimidated.  When we think grace we think “nice”. Forgiving. Accepted.  I love the tension that collides in Jesus.  He sits on a throne of grace – with acceptance and with challenge for how we live.  Let’s sit […]

Hear His Voice Today

by

Reading: Hebrews 3:7-19 Dear Friends, Today!  The writer of Hebrews has a lot to say about today.  In these verses he gives a warning for today based on the failed “today’s” of the past.  Let’s take some time to understand the warning and some time to be a little proactive. Peace, Pastor Dave

Tale Of Four Shepherds

by

Reading: 1 Peter 5:1-5 Dear Friends, Peter encourages the elders to “shepherd the flocks of God.” Today we will listen to four stories of four very different shepherds. Peace, Pastor Dave

Suffering 101

by

Reading:  1 Peter 3:13-4:6 & 4:12-19 Dear Friends, We’ve already considered a portion and main thought of today’s section.  How do we have hope? Even as we suffer.  Today? Today, we look at the facts.  What should we suffer for?  What should we do when we suffer? What should we NOT do when we suffer? AND, what should we […]

Behavior and Response

by

Reading: 1 Peter 3:8-12 Dear Friends, We have considered an awful lot about what it looks like to be a child of God.  How does it impact our life? Change us?  Today we take a reflective pause. We will have opportunity to admit that we fall short of God’s standards for us.  And – we […]

Suffering Story

by

Reading: 1 Peter 3:13-22 Dear Friends, Peter tells us some stories.  He pulls up the rocking chair and tells us some important and formative stories.  As it turns out, he’s telling us these stories because they are also (or should be) our stories. Peace, Pastor Dave

Relationships

by

Reading: 1 Peter 3: 1-7 Dear Friends, This (potentially) is an explosive section of scripture. It could be and has been twisted over time to mean things that it doesn’t say.  Paul is talking about the most intimate, precious relationships we have and how we function within them.  Is the way that we function lifting up the […]

Christ!

by

Reading: 1 Peter 2:18-25 Dear Friends, This might be the fullest and most beautiful section about Jesus that we have had so far.  Peter makes it crystal clear, Jesus suffered and died.  He did that FOR YOU! He also did it to set an example.  If He suffered, we should expect to as well. Peace, […]
