Have you ever forgotten something really important? Missed a meeting? Mind gone blank on someone’s name, or forgotten that the brownies were still in the oven? Sometimes it seems as though being forgetful is a part of human nature.

Interestingly, in one of Jesus’ last conversations with his closest followers he told them to “remember” Him. Join us as we explore the personal implications of the most memorable moment in human history.


Nobody likes to lose.

Whether it’s the big game or a little argument, if given the choice, you’d pick winning.

But what if the choice wasn’t that simple?

What if more hung in the balance than just winning?

    As we said in Part 1, winning anything significant involves choosing to lose something else. In Part 2 of this series we're going to discover something in a very familiar story in the New Testament that is unnatural and uncomfortable for any of us to choose to lose, but when we do it opens the door to the biggest wins in following Jesus. Choosing to lose in this way allows us to experience something that changes us and our relationship with God forever.

Why would God leave the comfort and recognition of heaven to live on this ball of dirt in a time before morphine and indoor plumbing when the best of conditions barely paralleled the worst of modern day conditions? Why?

We think we know why He died. But what compelled him to live as one of us?

    One of the unique things Christians believe is that God became one of us. For thirty years he lived under cover as a carpenter, surfaced as a miracle worker and rabbi for three years, and allowed himself to die in the most degrading way imaginable. He came as one of us but was treated as less than one of us.

    Why in the world would God do that?

    If there is a God, we all want to know what he’s like. We’re curious. Our tendency is to look in nature, outer space, or within ourselves to find clues about him. But that only provides us with an incomplete picture. Jesus made a radical claim. He said if you want to know about God, look no further than him. If you’ve seen the Son, you’ve seen the Father.

    We’ve all been picked on for something we had no control over. It’s dehumanizing. In all likelihood, you’ve also picked on others. It’s such a strange thing. It’s such a human thing. The easiest way to feel superior is to find a person or group we feel is inferior and power up. And we’ve probably all been guilty of that outwardly or inwardly.

    One of the reasons Jesus came into the world was to change all that.

  • Putting Religion in Its Place

    We want answers for life’s mysteries. Is there an after life? Will I see my mom again? What does the Bible say about divorce? Does the Bible say we have to give ten percent of our money to the church? Religion tries to answer those questions. Religion is about answers, order, predictability. Unfortunately, life isn’t about any of those things. Life can be messy. Religion has a place in our lives, but Jesus taught us it’s not the first place. When religion takes first place, it begins flexing its muscles at the expense of mercy.
