Get out from behind the curtain

When Jesus died on the cross, the curtain in the temple tore from top to bottom. The Message translation puts it so well: 19-21So, friends, we can now—without hesitation—walk right up to God, into “the Holy Place.” Jesus has cleared the way by the blood of his sacrifice, acting as our priest before God. The […]

Bigger, better, more beautiful, harder and then more

I was drinking a percolated coffee on a farm. It was harvest time. Outside you could hear the workers gathering the harvest and loading the trucks. I was fairly tired from recording the Sunday sermon. Suddenly a man came in. I recognised him from somewhere, but couldn’t make the connection. Then I remembered I had […]

All have been called

Many people get stuck on the idea that God chose or called some people to be His children, which then implies that some have not been chosen. This is what it says in Hebrews 9:17: His death marked the transition from the old plan to the new one, cancelling the old obligations and accompanying sins, […]

Rewriter of contracts

Now and then I have the privilege of marrying young couples who are in love. We meet with them beforehand and it is wonderful to see them growing through this process as they start seeing the reality on the other side of being in love. One of the things that we look at is the […]

In the King James translation of 1769, which corresponds closely to the original Greek Bible, verse 14 reads as follows: … how much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit […]

Worries and Jesus’ shoulders

Worry torments you. It steals your energy and leaves you weak. When worry enters by the front door, joy and peace leave by the backdoor. We weren’t made to drag worries with us. But what can you do if things don’t go well and you don’t really have any control over it? I remember when […]

Last Professional Priest

Some people are all thumbs. They can’t fix anything that’s broken in the house. They don’t even know what tools to use. Well, many of them don’t even have a toolbox that’s worth mentioning. But some others can fix anything. It’s as if they were born with a bag of tools in their hands. We […]

Jesus brings change

Change is part of life. Just look back at your childhood. We didn’t have screens. We didn’t even have a TV. To be honest, my dad said it was from the devil and that he would never buy one. When he accepted a call to a new congregation, the previous one gave him a big […]

Dust off your knowledge of Jesus

Nowadays it’s easy and cheap, and in some cases even free, to study further. I decided to register for one of these online courses. Since we’re recording sermons now, I decided to do a videography course. I have to say that the course, which runs over 32 weeks, is filled with information and I’m learning […]
