In hot pursuit of the spiritually blind

By Dave Henning / January 20, 2021

“Jesus is in hot pursuit of the spiritually blind.  They populate every pathway of every corner of the world.  He finds them.  And he touches them.  He may use a vision, or the kindness of a friend, or the message of a sermon, or the splendor of creation.  But believe this: he came to bring […]

A heavenly spit into the dirt – mud in our eyes

By Dave Henning / January 19, 2021

“Now there is something you don’t expect to read in the Bible: Jesus spitting.  A prayer would’ve seemed appropriate.  Perhaps a ‘hallelujah!’  But who expected . . . a heavenly spit into the dirt?  Of course, given the choice, we’d prefer that God would restore our sight with something more pleasant than mud in our […]

A sunset and the eyes of a stranger

By Dave Henning / January 18, 2021

“Some people think You just live in cathedrals made of stone/ But I know you live inside my heart, I know that it’s your home./  And I’ve seen you in a sunset and the eyes of a stranger on the street./  That’s who You are to me.”- Chris Tomlin “Happy are the people who know […]

A spiritual ophthalmologist for sightless people

By Dave Henning / January 17, 2021

“From heaven’s viewpoint our earth is populated by sightless people.  Blinded by ambition.  Blinded by pride . . . success . . . .  We need a spiritual ophthalmologist .  We need Jesus to do for us what he did for the man on the side of the Jerusalem road.”- Max Lucado “Satan, who is […]

Your greatest need = Jesus’ presence

By Dave Henning / January 16, 2021

“Pause for a moment and let [Jesus] tell you his name.  Your greatest need is his presence.  Yes, you want this storm to pass.  Yes, you want the winds to be still.  But yes, yes, yes, you want to know, need to know, and must know that the great I AM is near.”- Max Lucado […]

The sky will darken, the winds will rage

By Dave Henning / January 15, 2021

“All of us will face our share of storms.  No one gets through life scot-free.  At one point or another the sky will darken, the winds will rage, and we will find ourselves in a modern-day version of the Galilean gusher.”- Max Lucado “Soon a gale swept down upon [Jesus’ disciples], and the sea grew […]

Troubles = isolated hassles and hurts?

By Dave Henning / January 14, 2021

“If you see your troubles as nothing more than isolated hassles and hurts, you’ll grow bitter and angry.  But if you see your troubles as opportunities to trust God and his ability to multiply what you give him, even the smallest incidents take on significance. . . .  Count first on Christ.  He can help […]

More spunk, more grit – or no spark?

By Dave Henning / January 13, 2021

“We’d like to think [the disciples] would respond with more faith . . . .  We’d like to see more spunk, more grit. . . .  But they and the silent others showed no spark.  They counted the hungry people, the money in their bag, and the amount of bread and fish.  They did not, […]

This Bethesda of your life – Jesus sees you

By Dave Henning / January 12, 2021

Lodged between a rock and a hard place

By Dave Henning / January 11, 2021

“Odds are . . . you have been stuck.  Lodged between a rock and a hard place, unable to escape.  Mired in the mud of resentment, bogged down in debt, trapped in a dead-end job, up to your waist in the swamp of an unsolvable conflict.  Stuck.”- Max Lucado ‘One of the men lying there […]

Keep walking and believing in our God

By Dave Henning / January 10, 2021

“The father’s prayer . . . was answered in a manner greater than he had requested.  Yours will be as well.  Perhaps the answer will come this side of heaven.  Perhaps it awaits you on the other side.  Either way, this story (of Jesus healing the official’s son) urges you and me to keep walking […]

Somewhere between Cana and Capernaum?

By Dave Henning / January 9, 2021

“What about you?  Do you find yourself somewhere between Cana and Capernaum?  Like the official, you offered a heartfelt prayer.  You begged Jesus for help.  And, like the official, you didn’t receive the answer in the way you wanted.  Consequently, here you are, doing your best to place one foot in front of the other, […]
