Appearances of Jesus // Commissioning of the Disciples

In the Gospel, Jesus is speaking directly to 11 people, asking each to go forth doing His will and spreading His message. Jesus rose from the dead, and at that moment in Galilee the disciples began to understand everything being asked of them.

Appearances of Jesus // Jesus Appears to the Disciples While They are Fishing

I’ve recently been going through a period of waiting where God has been asking me to trust Him, and after several months where nothing seems to have changed, I don’t always feel like I have the energy to.

Appearances of Jesus // Jesus Appears to the Disciples and Thomas is with Them

At the end of today’s passage, we get some very eye-opening (pun intended) words from our Lord. “Blessed are those who have not seen, and have believed.”

When I was a kid, one of my favorite books was The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe. My favorite part of that book was when the Stone Table broke.

“...Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to the see the tomb.” Mark tells us, in his Gospel, that they carried spices so that they might anoint him.

Mary Magdalene is the first person in Scripture to whom Jesus appears after His resurrection. She hears His first spoken words, and later on becomes the first evangelizer with her own words

Art for the Heart

Blessed Easter to you all!

Your love awakens me, there were walls between us, by the cross you  broke them down.

There were chains around us, by your grace we are no longer bound.

You called me out of the grave, you called me into the light, you called my name and my heart came alive.

Your love is greater, your love is stronger, your love awakens me.

Feel the darkness shaking.

All the dead are coming back to life, hear the song awaken all creation sing, we are alive because you're alive.

What a love we found, death can't hold us down

We shout it out, "We're alive" because you're alive!

Your love awakens me.

Lent 2017 // Day Twenty Nine

Today’s scripture reading relates to two sisters and a story that is very near and dear to my heart. Now, I think we all know this story from the Bible. There are two sisters who invite Jesus into their home and one sister, Martha, spends the entire time cleaning and cooking for Jesus while her sister, Mary, is sitting at the feet of Jesus simply listening to Him talk.
