Jesus the Good Shepherd - John 10:22-30 - Pastor Glenn
There are many voices that we hear in our lifetime, and that speaks to us, many of which try to lead us away from God. Jesus tells us that "my sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me." Jesus, the Good Shepherd, speaks to us His sheep through His Word and Sacraments, and He lays down His life for His sheep to bring them forgiveness and salvation.
Jesus Changes People - Acts 9:1-22; John 21:1-19
After the resurrection, Jesus has a conversation with Peter that we see as Jesus restoring Peter as a disciple. On the road to Damascus, Jesus appears to Saul, and he becomes the apostle Paul. Jesus changes people. How has he changed you?
Blessed to Believe - John 20:19-31 - Pastor Glenn
On Easter Sunday, there are many things that happen that we read about in the next number of weeks. Jesus on the road to Emmaus; Jesus appears to His disciples when Thomas isn't there. When we look at Thomas, who is doubting Thomas and believing Thomas in the same reading, we can ask ourselves: Are we at all like Thomas? And what does it mean for us in our world today?
Silence and Salvation - John 20:1-10, Matthew 28:1-15 - Pastor Glenn
On Easter Sunday, come and step inside the empty tomb and see that Jesus is not dead, He is alive! The silence of His death on Good Friday is met with Angels and Alleluias on Easter Sunday. What does it all mean for us? And why do we need Jesus, on Easter Sunday?
God's Greatest Gifts - John 18:15-19:42 - Pastor Glenn
On Good Friday we follow Jesus to the cross where He lays down His life for the world. He was crucified with a sign that said "King of the Jews." This reminds us of the Wise Men who came to worship "the One who had been born king of the Jews" so many years before. Do the gifts of the Magi still mean anything? And why do we need Jesus, on Good Friday?
Betrayal and Bloodshed - John 13:1-17, Matthew 26:17-29, Luke 22:39-46 - Pastor Glenn
On Maundy Thursday Jesus washes His disciples' feet, celebrates His Supper with them, and prays in the Garden of Gethsemane. All the while, the betrayer is at work. Would you have betrayed Him? Like Judas did? Like Peter did? How about today in your own life? Why exactly do we need Jesus, on Maundy Thursday?
