Pastorbluejeans Weekender: Be Patient!

This pandemic that oppresses us will soon come to an end. Instead of taking matters violently, we should wait on God patiently. That does not mean that we could not speak out our anguish and sentiments, it only forbade violence and personally hostile speech.

Jesus’ Final Week: SUNDAY

In the Gospels' account of Jesus' resurrection, it says that he appeared to Mary Magdalene early in the morning (Mk. 16:9-10), to his disciples and to the other women also early in the morning. All these appearances happened on the day of his resurrection. There is no record of the Risen Christ meeting his mother Mary first.

Week Five: Responding to Jesus and His works This week’s reflection focuses on our response to the presence of Jesus and his works found in Luke 17:11-19:27 NASB. Luke reminds his readers that Jesus “was on the way to Jerusalem, He was passing between Samaria and Galilee” (Luke 17:11 NASB). In fact this is the final episode in the travelogue. The next passages talk about Jesus teaching in the Temple inside Jerusalem (Luke 19:45-21:38 NASB).

Week Four: Lost in His Own Home The older brother’s character shows that one does not have to leave his home in order to be lost or be called a prodigal son. A person can be estranged from God even if he is always inside the church. However, everyone is invited to return to God and repent, both the sinners and the clean ones.
