To The Whole Creation

Posted by David Dixon on

The post-resurrection days of Jesus are filled with excitement, confusion, and hope. Part of the confusion for the disciples was about what they were supposed to do now. If Jesus was truly alive, what are the followers of a resurrected Savior supposed to do? This was all brand new to...

Good Friday

Posted by David Dixon on

Surely he has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows;yet we esteemed him stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted. But he was pierced for our transgressions; he was crushed for our iniquities;upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with his wounds we are healed. All we like...

Son of the Father

Posted by David Dixon on

As we have seen this week reading through the crucifixion accounts of Jesus, there is a great deal that happened in those final hours. The amount of emotion, prophetic, and spiritual significance oozes off the pages as we read them. When I read John 18-19, my heart was again crushed as Jesus...

Jesus Prayed For You

Posted by David Dixon on

Did you know that Jesus prayed for you before he was crucified? In our reading for today, John 17, we find what commentators call "The High Priestly Prayer" of Jesus. It is called this because Jesus' prayer speaks to his role as the mediator of the reconciliation between us and God. We are...

Deeply Connected

Posted by David Dixon on

In the midst of what John records as some of Jesus' final words before being arrested, he tells the disciples, "I am the true vine." In the rest of John 15:1-10, Jesus explains that those who believe in him are like branches connected to the vine. As Jesus explains this connection this way, "the...

Be Prepared

Posted by David Dixon on

As I read our passage for today, Matthew 25, there was a sense of heaviness that I felt. In this chapter, Matthew records some teaching and explanation that Jesus gives concerning his second coming and judgement. It is a sobering reminder that the judgement of the Lord is real and it will bring...
