Christ Crucified | Easter Devotional by Katherine Kehler – Christian Article

This is the last week of Lent, also called Passion Week, and I have been reading and reflecting on the last days of Christ and His crucifixion. I will be forever grateful for Christ’s willingness to go through the agony of carrying our sins (the sins of more than six billion people), and to suffer extreme physical pain — the torture of being whipped and nailed to the cross — and rejection and loneliness. When I think about the love…

Is Jesus Simply a Retelling of the Mithras Mythology? – Christian Article

It’s been popular in the past ten years (or so) to describe Jesus as nothing more than a “retelling” of prior “dying and rising” gods such as Horus or Osiris. Skeptics who make such claims typically describe a number of shared characteristics in an effort to highlight the similarities between Jesus and prior mythologies. Perhaps the most persuasive case of potential mythological “borrowing” is found in claims related to Mithras, the ancient mythological deity worshipped in Persia four hundred years…

Jesus Fulfills Old Testament Worship – Christian Article

In the Old Testament economy, God established particular means through which his people were enabled to draw near to him in worship, although since the sacrifices were not completely pure and the worshipers remained sinful, no one could enter God’s presence for free and open communion with him. Jesus enabled such communion by himself fulfilling the function of each essential OT worship element. Jesus is the atoning sacrifice, the “lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world”…

Why Is Good Friday Called Good? – Christian Article

Sorrow to the Point of Death While urging his disciples to stay and keep watch with him, Jesus tells them, “My soul is overwhelmed with sorrow to the point of death” (Matthew 26:38). Can any of us imagine this? Jesus understood the full extent of what was going to happen to him (John 18:4), and he went to it obediently. Today—on a day we call Good Friday—we remember the agony experienced by Jesus not only through his death on the…

God’s Grace | Thoughts about God Daily Devotional – Christian Article

“In Christ we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace.” — Ephesians 1:7 Thought Forgiveness! What a sweet and precious gift. What we were powerless to fix, make up or pay for, God did for us in Jesus. With him, each day is a fresh start and rebirth of Springtime. But my, such a terrible cost he paid to give it to us! Prayer Thank you, Father, for your anguish…

Easter Devotional by Gail Rodgers – Christian Article

Beth purchased the chocolate bunnies and headed to the parking lot. Company was coming and she still needed to get groceries and clean. She made a mental note to get extra eggs for the kids to color. It was Easter week. They wouldn’t likely get to church. Her mental check list went on. She knew she was too busy, but she squeezed God in where she could. I’m sure God knew how easy it would be for us to do…

Triumph in Tragedy | Devotional by Max Lucado – Christian Article

Please open your Bible and read John 20:1-10 What do you say we have a chat about grave-clothes? Sound like fun? Sound like a cheery topic? Hardly. Make a list of depressing subjects, and burial garments is somewhere between IRS audits and long-term dental care. No one likes grave-clothes. No one discusses grave-clothes. Have you ever spiced up dinner-table chat with the question, “What are you planning to wear in your casket?” Most folks don’t discuss grave-clothes. The apostle John,…

Easter Devotional by Alec Niemi – Christian Article

The word “Hosanna” is used to express adoration, praise or joy. In the original Rabbinical Hebrew it is interpreted to mean ‘save, we pray’. As we read part of the Easter story we are reminded that as Jesus was entering Jerusalem, “a very large crowd spread their cloaks on the road, while others cut branches from the trees and spread them on the road. The crowds that went ahead of him and those that followed shouted, “Hosanna to the Son…

I Want to Know Him – Christian Article

“I want to know Christ and the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of sharing in his sufferings, becoming like him” Philippians 3:10 I have been thinking about Jerry McGrath. He was a marvelous singer and performed at many of our staff conferences. He had been in the secular entertainment industry when he was struck down with leukemia and was longer able to sing. He yielded his life to the Lord, and the Lord touched and healed him. After…

This is My Body – Easter Devotional by Idelette McVicker – Christian Article

“This is my body, given for you; do this in remembrance of me.” Luke 22:19 (NIV) I remember waking up in a narrow twin bed. I was at a women’s retreat: two nights away from home, with time to spend with God in the company of other women. It was still early. I reached for my Bible and opened it to Luke chapter 22. I heard the women in the hallways, getting ready for the day. There was cheerful chatter…

Poured Out Like Water | Easter Devotional by Charles Spurgeon – Christian Article

“I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint.” Psalm 22:14 Did heaven or Earth ever witness a sadder spectacle? In soul and body, our Lord felt Himself to be weak as water poured out on the ground. Placing of the cross in its socket shook Him with great violence, strained all His ligaments, pained every nerve, and more or less dislocated His bones. Burdened with His own weight, the glorious sufferer felt the strain…

To know, gain & be found in Christ – Christian Article

//pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/js/adsbygoogle.js (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push(); How do you normally introduce yourself, or how do we introduce new people in our midst? Often we begin with our name and title, followed by our function or position, together with the company or organization we represent. “This is Dr. (so-and-so), CEO of ABC company.” Throughout the ages, societies and mankind tend to focus on status and stature, rather than substance or character. This was true in Paul the Apostle’s time as well.…

Grace Beautifies the Broken Road – Christian Article

By Jay DeMarcus of Rascal Flatts I’m often asked what it means to be a Christian. I don’t find the answer to be as easy as saying, “A follower of Christ.” For me it’s a bit more complicated. Those kinds of pat answers tend to pass right over the nuance of things. And I hate that. I like the details. I like breaking things down and getting at the heart of things. When I say I’m a follower of Christ,…
