The angel caught the followers of Jesus ‘star gazing’… watching Jesus ascend into heaven, they were asked, Why do you stand here watching him? It was and is time for action…we are all in the middle of a war, whether we like it, realize it or engage in it…spiritual war is happening. We are under attack by the one and only real enemy. People are not my enemy…this world is not my enemy…bad times are not my enemy….but Satan is. Are you ready to fight… he is the only one you don’t have to turn the other cheek with. He, Satan, never fights fair, so listen and see how to go on the attack instead of being attacked all the time.read more

WHO IS HE? This King riding into town. Could he be the messiah, but we have seen his type before? Is HE different?

“Is foot washing for today?” It sounds like it might be some old custom, long forgotten or just for those times, but may we challenge you to learn to serve because Jesus is our model “Servant/Leader”. Foot washing was also a powerful reminder of cleansing for the everyday walk of all Christians….cleansing that comes with preparation, love, war, submission, obedience, and humility.read more
Life offers many questions…why am I here ? what’s my purpose ? where am I going ? how do I get there ? and am I on the right track ?
Jesus challenges us in the gospel of John to “Believe in HIM” and to really understand our “Advocate” … we need our Advocate to guide us, convict us, challenge us, and lead the way in the journey with Jesus. HE is the Holy Spirit, an Advocate like no other. HE also answers the real questions and points toward an exclamation point…an end that is a new beginning. Jesus asks the right questions as He moves toward the cross and the resurrection.
Who is THIS EXTREME JESUS ? We sing ‘There’s just something about that name’ and it is very true. The Word reveals this Jesus that speaks with ultimate authority and we need real authority. Jesus heals with a touch and how we need His touch today….HE ignites faith in us when there was none… HE is radical, real, relative, and relational as we meet the Extreme Jesus of the Word.
