All this year I have been reading “The Daily Walk Bible” which is in the New Living Translation. The Bible is laid out by date to read a certain section of scripture thus reading through the entire Bible in a…

Joy and Amazement

Piggy Backing off of yesterday’s post look at Luke 24:41. The disciples have just been through an incredible weekend of seeing Jesus captured, tried, beaten, and crucified. They now have discovered that Jesus has risen after three days. There is…
