Reflection

Re:Verse passage – John 19:1-30 (day six) John is doing more than retelling a historical account, albeit the greatest story ever told. He’s casting our own reflection. We see Pilate, passive but intrigued. We see the soldiers, indifferent to Jesus, but enjoying … Continue reading

Re:Verse reading–Acts 12:1-19 (day six) “[The gate] It opened for them of its own accord,…” Acts 12:10b God is in the details. Can you imagine if Peter were left to pick the lock of the gate, after God had done … Continue reading

Believe What?

Re:Verse reading–Mark 9:14-29 (day six) The father cried, “I believe; help my unbelief!” Believe what exactly? In this case, it seems clear. Jesus was inviting him to believe in Him, that he was able to bring lasting change and new … Continue reading
