HIStory is Coming
(Why We Teach & Lead the Children of Grace)
I love a good story!
I especially love true stories!
I love it when our family gets together and tells family history stories!
I love the Easter Story!
I love all the little stories inside the Easter Story!
I love the various connections in the Easter Story!
This week we begin the telling of Jesus' final walk to the cross.
There are three disciples that are mentioned, by name, with key roles, in the events of Christ's death and Resurrection:
Each of these three disciples responded to their sin differently
Each of these disciples can be compared to the walks people take in their faith.
Each of these disciples can be compared to the seeds the LORD speaks about in the parable of the SOWER in Matthew 13.
Sadly, Judas' faith mirrored that of the seeds that were not able to produce fruit.
Both Peter and Thomas went on to great ministry in the spreading of the Good News of Salvation in the early Church - even to die for their LORD and Savior.
