For Us

Beginning March 7, join us for a series of 30 devotionals: For Us—Meditations at the Foot of the Cross. “And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile and you are still in your sins… If in this life only we have hoped in Christ, we are of all people most to be pitied.”—1 Corinthians 15:17,19 That’s right, he said pitied. If Christ did not die on the Cross and rise again, we as Christians are in the sad position of being aware of the severity of our sin… and having no remedy for it … Read More >

Day 12 – A Thief’s Repentance

Today’s reading: Luke 23:39-43Today’s Reference: 1 Chronicles 29:14b, 16 “For all things come from you, and of your own have we given you…O LORD our God, all this abundance that we have provided for building you a house for your holy name comes from your hand and is all your own.” “Truly, I say to you, today you will be with me in Paradise.” The Bible doesn’t elaborate on his crimes. He’s just a common thief, and at first he joined in the mockery against Jesus. Observing Jesus’ behavior as the crowd taunted “The King … Read More >

Day 14 – Saved and Unsaved

Today’s Reading: Luke 23:39-43Today’s Reference: Matthew 12:30 “Whoever is not with me is against me, and whoever does not gather with me scatters.”   “Truly, I say to you, today you will be with me in Paradise.” Do you realize that both thieves offer up a prayer? The unrepentant thief said, “If you are the Christ, save yourself and us.” That’s a prayer. He wasn’t so concerned about eternity. He said, “Just get me off this cross.” He prayed and yet was lost forever, because he cared only for physical deliverance in … Read More >

Day 17 – A Forsaken Son

Today’s Reading: Matthew 27:45-46Today’s Reference: Nahum 1:6“Who can stand before his indignation?Who can endure the heat of his anger?His wrath is poured out like fire,and the rocks are broken into pieces by him.”  “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” No longer does Jesus say, “Father.” Into the thick, unnatural darkness that covered the land during the last three hours of His dying, He cries out to express His pain at separation from God. But still He says, “My God,” trusting even through despair. This was the … Read More >

Day 19 – Who Died on the Cross?

Today’s Reading: Psalm 22:1-11Today’s Reference: 2 Corinthians 5:18-19a “All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation; that is, in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself.” “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” Did the Father really forsake the Son on the cross, or did Jesus only feel forsaken? Did He suffer only as a man, as some people suggest, or did He suffer as God? It is necessary for a holy God to turn His face away from sin. He … Read More >

Who Can We Call a Saint?

If you are a member of the Catholic Church you are welcome among us. About 20% of all of our members were raised in the Catholic Church.  However, the canonization of two popes this past week does give me an opportunity to point out one of several major differences between us and Roman Catholicism. The Bible clearly and repeatedly teaches that all believers in Christ are “saints” (1 Corinthians 1:2; Ephesians 1:1; Philippians 1:1 etc). But in the early centuries when the idea arose that salvation was not a free gift given to those who believe … Read More >

Day 6 – The Most Spectacular Sin

Today’s Reading: Mark 14:41-46Today’s Reference: Romans 8:1-2 “There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life has set you free in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death.” It was the most spectacular sin in history, betraying the Messiah to a cruel death. As we saw yesterday, Judas responded with worldly sorrow that led to death, both physical and everlasting. But could he have been forgiven if he’d taken his guilt to Jesus instead of to men? Yes. Maybe there’s a sin … Read More >

Day 13 – Our Suffering Savior

Today’s Reading: Isaiah 53Today’s Reference: 1 Corinthians 1:23, 25 “Be we preach Christ crucified, a stumbling block to Jews and folly to Gentiles…For the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men.” “Truly, I say to you, today you will be with me in Paradise.” When He said those words, Jesus didn’t look much like He could fulfill them. Isaiah 53 paints a graphic picture: crushed, stricken, with no beauty or majesty in His physical form. We can only imagine the blood matted into His hair, the raw … Read More >

Day 15 – A Mother’s Grief

Today’s Reading: John 19:23-27Today’s Reference: Luke 2:34-35a “And Simeon blessed them and said to Mary his mother, ‘Behold, this child is appointed for the fall and rising of many in Israel, and for a sign that is opposed (and a sword will pierce through your own soul also)…’”   “Woman, behold, your son!” I wonder if Mary thought of Simeon’s words as she stood at the foot of the cross. If she hadn’t understood them before, she did now, all too painfully. And when she heard Jesus tell John to assume His duties as eldest … Read More >

Day 18 – An Anguished Father

Today’s Reading: Mark 15:33-34Today’s Reference: John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.”   “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” If Mary’s heart was wrung at the foot of the cross, how much more anguish was in the heart of the Father! This was the Son in whom He was “well pleased,” the Son with whom He had communed from before the beginning of time. Now the Father had to watch that Son … Read More >
