ACT

Re:Verse reading–Luke 23:1-27, 32-49 (day three)  “If men do these things when the tree is green, what will happen when it is dry?” It’s never the right moment, is it? You’ll wait till things settle down, till your courage wells … Continue reading

Perseverance

Re: Verse reading–Luke 16:19-31 (day three)  “Send Lazarus to my father’s house, for I have five brothers. Let him warn them.”  If we’ve gotten it into our heads that one’s post-death circumstances after a life of selfish disregard for God … Continue reading

Lesson

Re:Verse reading–Luke 4:1-13  (day three) “[The devil] left him until an opportune time.”  You know those things that catch your eye, get your goat, tick you off, push your buttons, turn you on? Yeah, Jesus could have listed those things … Continue reading
