    The Lord God helps me;
    therefore I have not been disgraced;
    therefore I have set my face like flint,
    and I know that I shall not be put to shame.
    (v. 7)

    “You should be ashamed of yourself!”

    “Shame on you!”

    These all too familiar words strike deep in the heart and can scar the soul. We carry the wound of shame as a body memory, like a...

    Isaiah 50:5-9a
    The 2022 poll of the American Psychological Association revealed the highest levels of stress and weariness in the American population ever recorded. Commenting on this lesson and its reference to the need for the servant to sustain the weary (v.4), John Calvin observed that Christians “cannot escape this condition” (Calvin’s Commentaries, Vol.VIII/2...

    In most churches I have served this is the week of Palm Sunday. The congregation sings “All Glory Laud and Honor,” as either the youth or other members of the church process around the sanctuary waving their palms. The processional text is usually read and sermon topic is based on this text (Matthew 21:1-11). Such ministry is not mutually exclusive to this passion set of texts today. It depends...

    Hello, everyone! (Let them respond.) Are you ready for our story today? (Let them respond.) Great! Our story today is about one of the people who traveled around with Jesus. His name was Peter, and the main thing we remember about Peter is that he really...

    Around the end of the nineteenth century, a book appeared on the life on Jesus. Nothing surprising about that, you may think, but this was the first time that anyone had written a life of Jesus outside the gospels. It was like a starter's flag, for after that, numerous books were published on the life of Jesus.

    All the books were different, and it became apparent...

    What really happened to the centurion who presided over our Lord's crucifixion? According to both Matthew and Mark, the centurion confessed that truly Jesus was God's Son. Luke says that the centurion simply asserted Jesus' innocence. But what went on in the centurion's mind as he watched this innocent young Galilean rabbi suffer a horrific death, forgiving his torturers and mockers, and...

    Now Jesus stood before the governor; and the governor asked him, "Are you the King of the Jews?" Jesus said, "You say so." But when he was accused by the chief priests and elders, he did not answer. Then Pilate said to him, "Do you not hear how many accusations they make against you?" But he gave him no answer, not even to a single charge, so that the governor was greatly amazed. (vv. 11--14)...

    Johnny is four years old and he stopped taking naps before his second birthday. From his 6:15 am wake up (all by himself, no alarm clocks) until his 8 pm bed time, Johnny is in perpetual motion. He is running or talking or both all day long, and he expects the same from everyone around him. You can't be around Johnny very long without feeling exasperated and exhausted, yearning for just a few...

    Come in! Come in! Do come in! Far be it from me that I should deny a visitor the hospitality of my little home. After all, it isn't really my home. I'm just a tenant. It belongs to the Lord, as does everything else you see around here, although I admit it isn't much. If I have an extra mat for a bed, or loaf of bread, or skin of wine, and you have need of it, consider it a gift from God to...

    "Truly, this man was God's Son!" (Matthew 27:54 NRSV).

    "Truly, this man was a son of God!" (Ibid., alternate reading).

    "This man really was God's Son!" (Ibid, CEV) said the soldier, at the foot of the cross, as Jesus died.

    So where in heaven was God while his Son hung there between heaven and hell; between life and death? Between the hosannas and the hallelujahs...

    ABC produced a television program titled Strange World. The story line of a rather dull episode was that a young scientist set out to transfer the memory of the mind from one person to another. The experiment was extended to transfer the experience of death in the mind of one person to another. In order to carry out his experiment the scientist decided to kill in order to transfer...
