Humble Lord

Posted by David Dixon on

While reading our passage today (John 13-14), I couldn't stop thinking about this reality: Jesus washed Judas' feet. The man, who from a human perspective, would wound him the worst. The same man who stole from Jesus' ministry. The same man who chose power over his friends life.  Jesus...

Grow Cold

Posted by David Dixon on

The Gospel of Jesus Christ is offensive and divisive. As the writer of Hebrews says, "it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow." This is why it is not surprising that when Jesus describes the end of the age in Matthew 24 that we see greater anger and brokenness on the...

Through Tears

Posted by David Dixon on

In the spring of 2016, I had the opportunity to visit the nation of Turkey. It is a beautiful country filled with rich history and lovely people. It also very much a Muslim country and a country that has been in the news lately for its political turmoil. I remember a lot about that trip, but...

Unafraid to Rock the Boat

Posted by David Dixon on

In our modern day caricature of Jesus, he is often viewed as a soft spoken, doting over everyone, kind of hippie teacher guy. When we dig into the Scriptures, we discover that Jesus was simply not that way. He was kind, loving, and compassionate but he was also not afraid to speak truth...

Learning to Ask Questions

Posted by David Dixon on

One of the things I love about Jesus is how he always has the right thing to say in the right moment. One moment he is teaching a deep truth. The next he is asking just the right question that goes to the heart of the matter. As we continue our reading today in Mark 11-12, we see one of these...

Grace and Determination

Posted by David Dixon on

If you have been tracking with us in our Scripture reading, you have probably realized that many of the stories this week in each of the Gospel are very similar. This is because we are approaching the time when Jesus enters Jerusalem for the last time to be crucified. One of the things that has...

Unbelief

Posted by David Dixon on

Sometimes I wonder if when we read the Bible we romanticize what took place and how people responded to Jesus. When we read about the ministry of Jesus and hear about the great crowds, I believe we tend to think that everyone (except for the religious leaders) believed in Jesus. Yet as we find...

The Final Journey

Posted by David Dixon on

The loving patience of Jesus with his disciples is beyond comprehension. In Mark 10:32, we learn that Jesus is traveling to Jerusalem. We find out from Mark 11 that this would be Jesus final journey to Jerusalem this side of his resurrection. What this means is that all of Mark 10 is taking...

Blessings

Posted by David Dixon on

One of the things I never anticipated about having four children is the looks that people give my wife and I when we have all four of them together in public. In a culture that values independence and autonomy as a chief virtues, having four kids, looks to many to be a prison sentence. Many of...

Increase Our Faith

Posted by David Dixon on

A few days ago, I wrote on the subject of faith and some questions surrounding it. If you didn't get a chance to read, you can read it here. Today I want to revisit this subject of faith from today's reading in Luke 17, specifically Luke 17:5-6. We aren't necessarily given a lot of context to...
