Serve Comfort Food

Peter’s story, as told in the books of John and Luke, comes full circle when Jesus invites him and several other disciples to breakfast after His resurrection. Jesus’ trio of questions may seem strange to most, but to Peter, they provide healing and restoration. God doesn’t just want to forgive our failures. He wants us to experience His love and fullness in restored relationship with Him.

Disciple Over Dinner

What would happen if two disciples had dinner with Jesus and didn’t even recognize Him? We find out in Luke 24, giving us insight into how to respond to life’s challenges when it feels like God’s not present. Hint: He’s always present.

The Best for Last

In our tradition back then, one dipped in and out of salvation depending on how successfully they lived the “Christian” life. For us that meant thinking only holy thoughts, daily prayer and Bible reading, no bad words, no dirty jokes, no smoking, drinking or…

Ahead

Speaking of all the notables in the Hebrew Scriptures who had lived and died with unrealized goals, the writer of Hebrews made this observation in Hebrews 11:13-16: These all died in faith, not having received the things promised, but having seen them and greeted them from afar, and having acknowledged that they were strangers and exiles on the earth. For people who speak thus make it clear that they are seeking a homeland. If they had been thinking of that…
