This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you

Last Sunday, we heard from the Gospel of St. John, chapter 14, when Jesus said to his disciples, Jesus said to his disciples, “If you love me, you will keep my commandments. And I will pray the Father, and he will give you another Counselor, to be with you for ever, even the Spirit of truth,” In another translation of the Bible, the word Advocate is used. The Greek word

Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful

“We know that we have passed out of death into life, because we love the brethren.” (1 John 3:14) St. John had a true gift for words. Last Sunday, I talked about the way Jesus used the Name of God to establish his credibility. Jesus called himself the Good Shepherd, one who will lay down his life for the sheep. That is the ultimate act of love. Today we heard

I AM the Good Shepherd

“I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.” John 10:11-16 In the Gospel according to St. John, Jesus makes several statements about himself to try to inform and reinforce his message to those willing to hear. To begin, it’s best to see why these statements had such an impact on his hearers. In the 3rd chapter of The Exodus, Moses was keeping the

There’s power in the blood

“The Blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin.” 1 John 1:1-2:2 Last Sunday we talked about Thomas, or Doubting Thomas, as he is known. It’s a label he has had ever since that day, and will never shake. Today we heard about another visit by the risen Lord to the disciples. Jesus stood among them and startled them again. He said, “Peace be with you,” or more

The Doubting Thomas

“Have you believed because you have seen me? Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have come to believe.” John 20:19-31 Poor Thomas. Thomas has been saddled with the name “Doubting Thomas” for a very long time. No one refers to Peter as “Sinking Peter,” because when he got out of the boat to go to Jesus, he looked down, and started to sink because he got scared.

Alleluia! The Lord is Risen!

Matthew 28:1-10 “Do not be afraid; for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified. He is not here; for he has risen, as he said.” I love the Easter Vigil service of the church. There is no other service quite like it. The lessons we heard at the beginning give us a glimpse at the history of salvation. The lighting of the new fire for the Paschal Candle

The Sunday of the Passion: Palm Sunday

Today is the start of Holy Week, the holiest week of the year. From today until next Sunday we will enter into a time of remembrance and participation with Jesus in his last week on earth. Today is called Palm Sunday, but you will notice in your bulletin it has two names. “The Sunday of the Passion: Palm Sunday” Today is the first full day of Passover, which runs for

The Newly Wed Game

Some of you may remember the Newlywed Game on TV. They would invite newly married couples to compete for prizes, by answering questions that they think their spouse would say. The host was Bob Eubanks, and he would ask questions to see how well the newly wed couple knew each other. Bob would ask the wives to step out of the room, then ask the husbands a question like, “What

Then God spoke all these words: I am the LORD your God

“Then God spoke all these words: I am the LORD your God” Exodus 20 St. Paul wrote these words: “So I find it to be a law that when I want to do what is good, evil lies close at hand. For I delight in the law of God in my inmost self, but I see in my members another law at war with the law of my mind, making

If any man would come after me

Jesus called to him the multitude with his disciples, and said to them, “If any man would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. Mark 8:34 In the past few weeks we have heard about the call to follow Jesus. We heard about Andrew and Simon, Philip and Nathan’a-el, and how they heard the call, and responded to it. Today, we heard
