The Holy Trinity

In the year that King Uzziah died I saw the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up; and the train of his robe filled the temple. Above him stood the seraphim. Each had six wings: with two he covered his face, and with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew. […]

The Festival of Pentecost

Now when [the people of Jerusalem] heard this [Peter’s Pentecost ‘sermon’] they were cut to the heart, and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, “Brothers, what shall we do?” (Acts 2:37 ESV) On the last day of the feast, the great day, Jesus stood up and cried out, “If anyone thirsts, let […]

Seventh Sunday of Easter

[Jesus said] “Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth. As you sent me into the world, so I have sent them into the world. And for their sake I consecrate myself, that they also may be sanctified in truth. (John 17:17-19 ESV) We pick up some of the last words Jesus said before […]

Fifth Sunday of Easter

Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world. By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, and every spirit that does […]
