March 2, 2017

Day 2: Lazarus Must Die! Posted by Ray Pritchard on Thursday, March 2, 2017 Here’s a brief video for Day 2 of “Faces Around the Cross.” The Jewish leaders wanted Lazarus dead–again! Two thousand years later–nothing has changed. There are only two days left for your FREE download of “Faces Around the Cross” from the […]

5. In the Garden: Not the Gardener

April 5, 2015

                    “’Woman,’ he said, ‘why are you crying? Who is it you are looking for?’ Thinking he was the gardener, she said, ‘Sir, if you have carried him away, tell me where you have put him, and I will get him’” (John 20:15). Why didn’t Mary recognize the Lord? The text doesn’t say but several […]

6. Behind Closed Doors: Waiting

April 4, 2015

“Then they went home and prepared spices and perfumes. But they rested on the Sabbath in obedience to the commandment” (Luke 23:56). The four gospels do not tell us much about what happened on the Saturday between Good Friday and Easter Sunday. We know that after Jesus died, the disciples stayed behind locked doors for […]

7. Golgotha: Were You There?

April 3, 2015

“They brought Jesus to the place called Golgotha (which means The Place of the Skull)” (Mark 15:22). It’s Friday morning, 9 A.M. Killing time in Jerusalem. Outside the Damascus Gate is a road and on the other side of the road is a flat area near the spot where the prophet Jeremiah is buried. Up […]

8. Gethsemane: The Traitor’s Kiss

April 2, 2015

“Jesus asked him, ’Judas, are you betraying the Son of Man with a kiss?’” (Luke 22:48). When we study the four gospels, we find a remarkable series of facts about Judas: He was personally chosen to be an apostle by Jesus Christ. He forsook all to follow the Lord. He spent 3 1/2 years traveling […]

9. The Temple: Not One Stone Will Be Left

April 1, 2015

Stones from the destruction of the temple in A.D. 70. “They will not leave one stone on another, because you did not recognize the time of God’s coming to you” (Luke 19:44). Jesus loved Jerusalem. When he uttered these words, he was weeping. No doubt his hearers didn’t take him seriously when he said the […]

10. The Temple Courts: A Trick Question

March 31, 2015

“He is not the God of the dead but of the living, for to him all are alive” (Luke 20:38). Ever met a Sadducee? Me neither. That’s not surprising considering the last one died 2000 years ago. And even back then, there were never very many of them. It was always a very select group, […]

11. The Temple Courts: Shake Us Up, Lord

March 30, 2015

“My house will be called a house of prayer for all nations” (Mark 11:17). Jesus would not put up with some things. We have seen over and over again his compassion for the hurting and his outreach to the forgotten. He cares for those the world forgets. But he has little patience with religious people […]

12. Bethphage: A Donkey for Jesus

March 29, 2015

“They brought the donkey and the colt; then they laid their robes on them, and he sat on them” (Matthew 21:7). The story of Palm Sunday really begins with a donkey. Most of us have heard how Jesus sent his disciples to the village of Bethphage with instructions to bring back a donkey. When you […]

13. Ephraim: No Safe Place

March 28, 2015

“Therefore Jesus no longer moved about publicly among the Jews. Instead he withdrew to a region near the desert, to a village called Ephraim, where he stayed with his disciples” (John 11:54). No good deed goes unpunished. Raise a man from the dead, and they want to kill you. That’s what happened to Jesus after […]

14. Bethany: A Dead Man Rises

March 27, 2015

“Lazarus, come out!” (John 11:43). Lazarus was already dead for four days when Jesus arrived in Bethany. He had been dead long enough for his body to begin decaying. Now Jesus is here. What will he do? Lazarus has been dead so long that any thought of an immediate resurrection is out of the question. […]

15. Across the Jordan: Waiting for Lazarus to Die

March 26, 2015

“When he heard that Lazarus was sick, he stayed where he was two more days” (John 11:6). Why did he wait two more days? Why not come now, right now, while Lazarus is alive? If he really loved Lazarus, why delay at all? It’s easy to understand the disciples’ confusion. “Lord, this man is your […]

16. Jericho: A Little Man with a Big Problem

March 25, 2015

“Zacchaeus, come down immediately” (Luke 19:5). He was a little man with a big problem. Jesus was coming to town but the crowds kept Zacchaeus, who was a short man, from seeing him. A familiar Sunday school song tells the story: Zacchaeus was a wee little man And a wee little man was he. He […]

17. On the Road: No Turning Back

March 24, 2015

“Still another said, ‘I will follow you, Lord; but first let me go back and say goodbye to my family.’ Jesus replied, ‘No one who puts his hand to the plow and looks back is fit for service in the kingdom of God’” (Luke 9:61-62). Let’s call this fellow the Divided Disciple, which is a […]

18. In the Villages: The Harvest is Plentiful

March 23, 2015

“Then he said to his disciples, ‘The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest’” (Matthew 9:37-38). A few years ago we bought this banner at a Christian scroll shop in China. It contains the Mandarin translation of Matthew […]

19. A Solitary Place: Give Them Something to Eat

March 22, 2015

“He said to them, ‘Give them something to eat.’ They said, ‘We have only five loaves of bread and two fish’” (Luke 9:13). The location of this miracle is described in various ways: “A desolate place” (Matthew 14:13). “A solitary place” (Mark 6:32). “A town called Bethsaida” (Luke 9:10). “The far shore of the Sea […]

20. Perea: What Camels Can’t Do

March 21, 2015

“How hard it is for the rich to enter the kingdom of God! Indeed, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God” (Luke 18:24-25). They must have laughed when Jesus said it. Camels can’t go through the eye […]

21. Sea of Galilee: When Christ is in the Boat

March 20, 2015

Rembrandt, Storm on the Sea of Galilee, 1633 “There arose a great storm on the sea, so that the boat was being swamped by the waves; but he was asleep” (Matthew 8:24). I ran across a message by Dietrich Bonhoeffer called “Overcoming Fear” taken from The Collected Sermons of Dietrich Bonhoeffer. He preached it a […]

22. A Samaritan Village: Let Go and Move On

March 19, 2015

“When the disciples James and John saw this, they asked, ‘Lord, do you want us to call fire down from heaven to destroy them?’ But Jesus turned and rebuked them, and they went to another village” (Luke 9:54-56). Let’s be clear about one thing. The Samaritans had a rotten attitude. They hated the Jews so […]

23. Nain: A Funeral Interrupted

March 18, 2015

“Then he went up and touched the coffin, and those carrying it stood still. He said, ‘Young man, I say to you, get up!’ The dead man sat up and began to talk, and Jesus gave him back to his mother” (Luke 7:14-15). Only Jesus could do this. Death has such vast power that we […]

24. Down from the Mountain: Suspend Disbelief

March 17, 2015

“Immediately the father of the child cried out and said, ‘I believe; help my unbelief!’” (Mark 9:24). They called it one of the greatest upsets in the history of March Madness. It happened on March 16, 2012 when the Lehigh Mountain Hawks played the Duke Blue Devils. To say Duke was heavily favored is putting […]

25. On the Mountain: More to Come!

March 16, 2015

The Transfiguration by Giovanni Bellini, 1480 “There he was transfigured before them. His face shone like the sun, and his clothes became as white as the light” (Matthew 17:2). Sometimes chapter divisions comes in bad places. This is a good example of that. At the end of Matthew 16, Jesus reveals to his disciples the […]

Ebook: In His Steps

No one who met our Lord ever stayed the same. If Christmas tells us why Jesus came, then Easter tells us he fully accomplished his mission. In between those two events we have the whole life of Christ. That’s our focus as we walk “In His Steps”, a book of 47 devotionals for the season of Lent (the period of time leading up to Easter).

“Equipping and encouraging people to keep believing in Jesus”

“Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”
