Last Words | Forgive Them | Scars

It was over. That horrible day of torture and death was behind Him.

The godly may trip seven times, but they will get up. But one disaster…overthrows the wicked. Proverbs 24:16 Rance touched the bars that separated him from his friend. “I’m sorry, man,” he said.

March Madness | The Madness of Failure | Temptation

The LORD directs the godly. Though they stumble, they never fall, for the LORD holds them… Psalm 37:23-24 “I’m really struggling with my faith,” Ellie admitted to her life group. “I’m tempted to start drinking again and when my boyfriend asked me to move in with him…” She bit her lip and tears threatened. “I really thought…

March Madness | The Madness of Failure | Asking for You

The angel said, “Don’t be alarmed…He is risen from the dead! Go tell his disciples, and Peter…  Mark 16:6-7 The sun baked his skin, but he didn’t care. He hoped he’d broil to death and end his sorry existence. He’d had the chance of a lifetime and he blew it. He, plain ol’ Peter, had…

March Madness | The Madness of Failure | Acknowledgement

Immediately the rooster crowed the second time…And Peter broke down and wept.  Mark 14:72 That moment when you’re caught. Time stands still and one sound freezes you in place. It might be prison bars clanging shut. It might sound like sirens, a phone call, or the scream of someone you betrayed. For Peter, it was…

March Madness | The Madness of Failure | He Knows

Jesus replied, “This very night before the rooster crows twice, you will deny Me three times.”  Mark 14:30 Passions ran high and tension was a heavy fog. Jesus was saying some crazy things. He was talking about dying and how they’d all abandon Him. It made Peter mad. How could the Lord think that about him?…
