Lester Denley - Full Testimony

You know what the peace is that’s unexplained, that humans can’t understand? I had that peace. God had been beside me for decades, but I didn’t really appreciate it. I didn’t really express my gratitude at all. But, you know what? In every prayer, every day, I do give him thanks for what He’s done for me and what He’s doing for me.   Read More

Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices, so that they might go and anoint Jesus. (Mark 16:1) These three women went to the tomb on the first day of the week (Sunday) to see Jesus and to anoint Him with spices.When they arrived, they saw that the large stone was not covering the tomb. 4 And looking up, they saw that the stone had been rolled back-it was very large. 5 And ...  Read More

Joseph brought a long sheet of linen cloth. Then he took Jesus' body down from the cross, wrapped it in the cloth, and laid it in a tomb that had been carved out of the rock. Then he rolled a stone in front of the entrance. The word ‘story’ is mentioned only two times in the Old Testament:  2 Chronicles 13:22 and 24:27 (KJV). Under Hebrew, “story” means “an investigation.” This remind me of Acts ...  Read More

Going a little farther, he fell to the ground and prayed that if possible the hour might pass from him.  “Abba, Father,” he said, “everything is possible for you. Take this cup from me.

Holy Week: Day 4
on April 8th, 2020
Once you’ve known me for a little while, you’ll probably figure out that speaking publicly is a challenge for me. Singing and reading scripture is fine because I’m just speaking someone else’s words, but I always relate the most to Moses and his insistence that maybe Aaron or some other leader could do a better job of speaking to Pharaoh than he ever could. But like Moses and like this woman in Be...  Read More

When they arrived back in Jerusalem, Jesus entered the Temple and began to drive out the people buying and selling animals for sacrifices. He knocked over the tables of the money changers and the chairs of those selling doves, and he stopped everyone from using the Temple as a marketplace. He said to them, “The Scriptures declare, ‘My Temple will be called a house of prayer for all nations,’ but y...  Read More

Many people spread their cloaks on the road, while others spread branches they had cut in the fields. Those who went ahead and those who followed shouted, “Hosanna!”“Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!”“Blessed is the coming kingdom of our father David!”“Hosanna in the highest heaven!” Hosanna, God Save Us! The King is Arriving! Do you remember arrivals in your life that you wouldn’t ...  Read More
