III. Reflections: John 6:26-35 - Bread of Life

9. Out of Nowhere in the Middle of Nowhere

The hunger that Jesus satisfies for purpose and meaning beyond ourselves, awakens in us other hungers, for peace, justice, loving kindness, and a humble walk with our God. No matter how often we feast at God's table, these hungers never leave us. ...

10. Bread from Heaven

John the evangelist reminds us again that life eternal is a gift of God for those who put their trust in Jesus. This gift of life is ours for the asking, ours when we ask Jesus. ...

11. Food For Thought: The Bread of Life Discourse in Johannine Legitimation

In this chapter, Jesus is identified as the true manna or bread from heaven. The origin of this concept is probably the need to show that Jesus fulfilled the Jewish expectation of an eschatological provision of manna, coupled with the developing Wisdom christology formulated from the need to contrast Jesus with Moses and/or Torah. ...

IV. Featured: Luke 22: 24-30 - Servant Leadership

12. Servanthood: Humility in Action

14. Who Is the Greatest?

The key to walking in freedom is helping each other get our eyes off ourselves and back on to Jesus. Because our souls are designed to be satisfied with his glory, not our own. ...

15. Whoever Wants to be First Must be Last of All and Servant of All

Time and time again Jesus must re-emphasize the difference between the values of the Kingdom of God and the values of this world, values that include status, position, power and influence. Thatís some contrast with the ideas of servanthood and being last. ...

16. Two Men Worth Imitating

Every believer is called to serve our Lord and Master, Jesus Christ. Unlike most sports teams, the Lord's team does not have any bench warmers. Every Christian is given a first-string spot on the team, with a vital role to fulfill. A non-serving Christian is a contradiction in terms. ...

V. General Weekly Features

17. Family Abuse and Rescue - Role of Extended Family

My own aunts remind me what a blessing extended family can be. They help me understand how important it is not to get so focused on our nuclear families that we forget our wider kith and kin. ...

18. Family Special: Lord, I Need Your Help

Are there hurts that hold you hostage? Expectations no one could really ever meet? Been trying to fix someone or a situation? Need some help today? I know I do, and God is there. ...

19. Christian Living: Hard Spiritual Truths That Will Set Us Free

There is a kind of unexpected serenity in living in the world as it is rather than resenting it for not being the way we want it to be. ...
