Joseph was loved by his father so much that Jacob even made him a special tunic or coat of many colors, but this angered his older brothers and they hated him. Joseph tattled on his brothers one time (perhaps more than once) because they were misbehaving, and they hated him. That’s strong negative emotion coming…

It’s a mind blowing commission! Imagine with me for a moment hanging around Jesus up close and personal for just over three years. There probably wasn’t a day that there wasn’t some eye-popping, jar-dropping moment of Jesus doing some incredible sign, wonder, healing, deliverance or miracle. For me personally, Jesus walking on the water was…

After further pondering last week’s “Just a Thought” I felt there was unfinished business with that statement by Jesus. There have been many great philosophers and teachers in humankind, and there have been many who have done great humanitarian deeds and they have moved us by their deep compassion. This statement by Jesus, about Himself,…

Sometimes people make extraordinary claims about their accomplishments or even about themselves. For example, a boxer who danced like a butterfly and stung like a bee said he was the greatest boxer in the world. Neil Armstrong’s claim to fame was out of this world … literally! Well, another giant leap for mankind was when…

When I’m in unfamiliar territory I get real nervous about getting lost. I hate being lost because it’s inconvenient, time-consuming and really frustrating. I like to have a good idea of the lay of the land, such as familiarity to street names, sign posts, land-marks, a personal navigator and perhaps a seeing eye dog who…

Have you ever visited a mansion? I mean like been inside and looked through the entire house, walked around outside in the gardens, sat by the pool and pondered what it would be like to live there in that mansion. I had a friend who lived in a real big house and we thought it…

One time Jesus spoke to his close friend Martha and said to her, “Martha, Martha, you are worried and troubled about many things.” Jesus had come to her house for a meal with His disciples and her siblings Mary and Lazarus. Mary chose to sit at Jesus’ feet and listen to Him teach while Martha…

Another interesting thing Jesus said to His disciples during that last Passover supper was a new commandment He gave them. Under the Law of Moses (The Old Covenant) the people of God were to love the Lord their God and they were to love their neighbour as themselves. I don’t think there was any uncertainty…

During the last Passover meal Jesus would eat with His disciples He said to them, “One of you shall betray Me!” The twelve of them were shocked to say the least. Each one pondered as to whether or not it might be them. John evened leaned on Jesus and asked directly, “Lord is it I?”…

The Word says that Jesus, “rose from supper and laid aside His garments, took a towel and girded Himself. After that, He poured water into a basin and began to wash the disciples’ feet, and to wipe them with the towel with which He was girded.” Now, depending upon the culture you came from or perhaps…
