Great Forgiveness, Great Love

GUWG-Sin-EraserWe continue our journey into every word spoken by Jesus in the Gospels to help us all KNOW JESUS MORE NOW.

A Pharisee invited Jesus to dinner. They were joined by an unexpected “guest”:

A woman in that town who lived a sinful life learned that Jesus was eating at the Pharisee’s house, so she came there with an alabaster jar of perfume. As she stood behind him at his feet weeping, she began to wet his feet with her tears. Then she wiped them with her hair, kissed them and poured perfume on them.

Here’s today’s selection:

Jesus said, “I praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and learned, and revealed them to little children. Yes, Father, for this is what you were pleased to do.

Amazing Faith

After Jesus finished the Sermon on the Mount, he went to the town of Capernaum. Here’s what happened next, according to eyewitnesses:

Cross Over

GUWG-Jesus-CrossWe continue our journey into every word spoken by Jesus in the Gospels to help us all KNOW JESUS MORE NOW.

Jesus continues the discussion started yesterday about who he is and why he came:

“Very truly I tell you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be judged but has crossed over from death to life. Very truly I tell you, a time is coming and has now come when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God and those who hear will live. For as the Father has life in himself, so he has granted the Son also to have life in himself. And he has given him authority to judge because he is the Son of Man.”

A Compassionate Savior

Today, Jesus reaches out and touches an outcast:

A man with an advanced case of leprosy came and knelt before Jesus with his face to the ground, begging to be healed. “Lord, if you are willing, you can heal me and make me clean,” he said.

Moved with compassion, Jesus reached out and touched him, “I am willing,” he said. “Be healed!”

Spiritual Rebirth

GUWG-Spiritual-RebirthWe continue our KNOW JESUS MORE NOW series where we’re examining every word spoken by Jesus in the Gospels.

Today we’ll focus on Part 1 of one of the most famous conversations in human history:

Now there was a Pharisee, a man named Nicodemus who was a member of the Jewish ruling council. He came to Jesus at night and said, “Rabbi, we know that you are a teacher who has come from God. For no one could perform the signs you are doing if God were not with him.”

Jesus replied, “Very truly I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born again.”

ROMANS-O-RAMA

It’s ROMANS-O-RAMA here on GUWG, where all week we’ll be taking a look at lessons from one of the Bible’s most revolutionary books.

Reading Romans has been a turning point for many Christians. It helped Martin Luther realize that we’re saved by grace through faith, sparking the Reformation. John Wesley felt his heart “strangely warmed” when he read Luther’s comments on Romans, which triggered another revival. Modern theologians continue to be amazed by the book. N.T. Wright called it the Apostle Paul’s “masterpiece” and “a work of massive substance, presenting a formidable intellectual challenge, while offering a breathtaking theological and spiritual vision.”
