    March 13: Framed

          

    Ever had someone you couldn’t please, no matter what you did? Ever been set up to fail, no matter how hard you tried? Ever been in a situation where you just couldn’t win, whether with a boss, a coworker, a family member, or a former friend? Jesus understands. Jesus too was set up before the court of his people. No matter what he did or said, he couldn’t win with the high priest. Turns out, Jesus was framed. Join us and listen in to this event of Jesus’ passion (John 8:12-14, 19-24). Learn from your Savior and Friend when you too are framed and broken.

    March 10: Faith Makes Us Fearless

                   

    Fear filled the hearts of Jesus’ friends that night, especially after Jesus’ chilling words of denial. But that made Jesus’ promise all the sweeter. He was going to prepare a place for us. He would be the way to get to the Father. We could trust in him when our hearts our troubled. That’s the peace we need when we realize the sinfulness of our hearts.

    March 3: Love

                   

    Jesus knew the time of his betrayal and death was drawing near. So, what did he do? He showed his friends the full extent of his love. He humbled himself, washed the very feet that would later abandon him, and encouraged his followers to love one another. In an age when many Christians are panicking, hiding, reacting, and living in fear, Jesus’ words are urgent for his 21st century friends.
