"The crowds that went ahead of him and those that followed shouted, "Hosanna to the Son of David!" "Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!" "Hosanna in the highest heaven!"

The chanting of this psalm was connected at the Feast of Tabernacles with the waving of palm branches; hence the use of... Continue reading

Jesus walked through the wilderness and Satan tried to tempt him. Great example of having a ready answer when the devil comes calling and whispering into my ear. If I have the word of God ready in my brain, I can resist the temptation, but that means I must spend time in the word, know the word and have it in my heart, mind and soul. Love this internet picture- praising the cross, in the... Continue reading

There is nothing that can wash away my sin but the blood of Jesus! I proclaim that and believe with all my heart. Journey to the Cross is a way to understand what Jesus did for us- he washed our sin away once and for all by sacrificing his life for mine, and yours. Remembering that daily is our call, not just once a year on Easter, or Good Friday. It is about the 3... Continue reading

The toughest topic, loving yourself! Not the worlds kind of self love- the inflated ego, self focus and "its all about me" kind of love. No this is the sacrificial, serving, peaceful self love. This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun! 2 Cor 5:17 The word that stand out is NEW- new person, new life! So I chose to...

"I am giving you a new commandment: Love each other in the same way that I have loved you." John 13:34-35 I learned a lot about this bible verse from the Scripture Snippets technique. Why does Jesus tell the disciples this is a new commandment? It is actually a old on from Leviticus 19:8, but this time Jesus means a new object and a new measure of Love. The new object is to love one... Continue reading
