4. Never AloneApril 1, 2018
“Their eyes were opened, and they recognized him. And he vanished from their sight” (Luke 24:31). Sunday 3:30 PM On the Road to Emmaus It had been a long, confusing day for Cleopas and his friend. It all started early in the morning with wild rumors about Jesus rising from the dead. They thought it might […]

“They rested on the Sabbath in obedience to the commandment” (Luke 23:56). We’re not told a great deal about the “silent Saturday” between Good Friday and Easter Sunday. Because it was the Jewish Sabbath, most of Jerusalem was shut down. The disciples of Jesus, shocked by his bloody crucifixion, hid behind closed doors. About the […]

“Do you think that I cannot appeal to my Father, and he will at once send me more than twelve legions of angels?” (Matthew 26:53). A legion meant 6000 Roman soldiers. Twelve legions would equal 72,000 soldiers. Twelve legions of angels would mean at least 72,000 angels. Don’t you think that many angels could handle the […]

Midnight in Gethsemane. Jesus has been praying alone. In the distance the disciples can see the flickering lights as a group of soldiers crosses the Kidron Valley. They are led by Judas. It all happened so quickly. A brief conversation, a hurried kiss on the cheek, and the soldiers step forward to take Jesus away. […]
“Rabbi, look! The fig tree that you cursed has withered” (Mark 11:21). Fig trees are for making figs. Pretty simple, really. We plant apple trees because we want apples, peach trees because we want peaches, orange trees because we want oranges, and fig trees because we want figs. We might as well ask what good […]

13. A Dead Man RisesMarch 27, 2018
“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 start 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. […]
Here’s the video devotional for “When Jesus Seems Slow.” God’s timetable and ours are rarely the same. #MiracleRoad Click here to sign up for the free email sermons.
“When he heard that Lazarus was ill, he stayed two days longer in the place where he was” (John 11:6). Why did he wait two more days? Why not come 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 friend. We’ve […]

“I cast out demons and perform cures today and tomorrow, and the third day I finish my course” (Luke 13:32). The Pharisees tried to warn him. They said Herod wanted to kill him. They were right. But Jesus was a man who knew no fear. He sent them back to the king with a message, “Go […]

“Ought not this woman, a daughter of Abraham whom Satan bound for eighteen years, be loosed from this bond on the Sabbath day?” (Luke 13:16) She had been deformed for eighteen years. That’s a long time to suffer. What can we learn from her story? First, she was in bondage. For eighteen years she suffered from a […]

“Teacher,” said John, “we saw someone driving out demons in your name and we told him to stop, because he was not one of us.” “Do not stop him,” Jesus said. “For no one who does a miracle in my name can in the next moment say anything bad about me, for whoever is not against us […]
Here’s the video devotional for “What to Do When You Don’t Know What to Do.” Jesus is going to the cross. Will you still follow him? #MiracleRoad Click here to sign up for the free email sermons.
“Immediately he recovered his sight and followed him on the way” (Mark 10:52). Recently I listened to David and Jason Benham speak at a Men’s Conference in Dallas. They began with this declaration: “It’s fun to follow Jesus until you find out where he’s going.” That strikes me as exactly right. While it is true […]

25. Now I SeeMarch 21, 2018
“One thing I do know, that though I was blind, now I see” (John 9:25). How can you prove your faith is real? The man born blind faced that problem when the Pharisees questioned him. They doubted everything about his story, including the fact that he had been born blind. But mostly they wanted to discredit Jesus […]
