Premeditated Murder

Posted by David Dixon on

As we get to today's reading in our Scripture reading guide, we come to a familiar and very powerful passage: the raising of Lazarus in John 11. We see Jesus' humanity in his response to sin and death. We see Jesus' deity as he raises Lazarus from the dead and proclaims that he is the...

Faith Question

Posted by David Dixon on

Many of my posts have been about observations and theology found as we have read through the Gospels, but today I would simply like to ask some hard questions. As I ask these questions, I am not asking them out of doubt, but out of a desire for a deeper understanding of my relationship with the...

Whiter than Bleach

Posted by David Dixon on

When something incredible happens in the Bible that goes beyond human explanation, the people of those moments are left trying to describe it in a way that we can understand. In our passage today, Mark 9, we see what we call the Transfiguration. It is the moment when Jesus is "transfigured" and...

Investments

Posted by David Dixon on

When you sit down with a financial planner, one of the things that they ask you to do is to take an inventory or all that you have and how you are spending it. It can be a humbling experience to consider how you have used the money that you have. It forces you to ask the question, what do I have...

Our Protector

Posted by David Dixon on

In our paintings and media, Jesus is often portrayed as a soft spoken, sash wearing, clean robe kind of guy. We can often, as Christians, forget that Jesus is anything but soft. On earth, he is a table throwing, bold preaching, deeply emotional, and hard working man. In his glory as portrayed in...

Growing Confidence

Posted by David Dixon on

When I read the Bible, I am so thankful for it's honesty. It doesn't portray all of it's heroes as perfect. It portrays them as real people. I believe God did this on purpose to remind us that it isn't in our strength that we live and grow in Jesus, but it is actually Him at work in us. Take...

Pursuit

Posted by David Dixon on

Jesus liked to tell stories. We call them parables, but really they are stories. These stories were meant to help us understand who God is and how he desires to work in the world. In our reading for today, Luke 15, we read three of these stories, but they all revolve around the same theme: God...

A Broken Heart

Posted by David Dixon on

One of the unfortunate things that can happen when we read the Bible is that we can get used to reading it more like a textbook. When we do that we can read it without emotion, when in fact there is a great deal of emotion within the words and circumstances of the Scriptures. When I read...

Have No Fear

Posted by David Dixon on

We live in a world wtih a great deal of fear. Some real. Some imaginary. But for many fear is a regular and overwhelming part of everyday life.  Jesus again talks about fear in our passage today (Luke 12). Specifically, he says, “Fear not, you are of more value than many...
