MARK SCHULTZ-I AM THE WAY
“My God my God why have you forsaken me?” Read Psalm 22 if you’re wondering what Jesus really meant. It’s a Psalm of David written hundreds of years before Jesus was born. David was a songwriter & poet. He was wrestling with the challenges in his life and he penned this Psalm in his pain. It’s so deep it actually includes some prophecy of the coming Messiah - a different kind of king in David’s lineage.
“My God, my God, why have you forsaken me? Why are you so far from saving me, from the words of my groaning? O my God, I cry by day, but you do not answer, and by night, but I find no rest.
As you read through the Palm Sunday story this weekend at church, there’s a few things I want to point out to you that might rock your world.
The Gospels say Jesus, rode into Jerusalem on that colt of a donkey who had never been ridden. That actually fulfilled a prophecy in Zechariah 9 written like 500 years before Jesus was born. It says:
Rejoice greatly, Daughter Zion! Shout, Daughter Jerusalem! See, your king comes to you, righteous and victorious, lowly and riding on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey. (meaning he has never been ridden before)
John Piper has a Holy Week devotional he just released as a FREE e-book.
This might be great reading plan to challenge your faith and help you understand the significance & real love behind Christ's death & resurrection.
There’s so much of the Easter story what was foretold hundreds of years before Jesus was ever born. The prophet Jeremiah said,” They took 30 pieces of silver. The price of the one priced by sons of Israel, and they purchased the potter’s field.”
Here's a chat that gets really deep about marriage.

This will really encourage you! Feel free to share it with a friend who needs to hear it too :)
Author/Pastor Benny Perez talked about living through a life of pain and struggle on our show this morning. He has a powerful story and he shared what his family has learned through loss.
He has a new book called MORE: Discovering the God of MORE when live gives you LESS.
Argo won best picture, Daniel Day Lewis won Best Actor & Jennifer Lawrence won Best Actress. Brave won best animated movie.
I think about all the elements that go together to make great movies, and for me it all goes back to the story. Because we can all relate to the conflict that a character faces in life. It’s reflective to us.
Donald Miller is the guy who wrote Blue Like Jazz and over the weekend I heard him say:
It was tough to share the news about the car shooting on The Las Vegas Strip this week. It took place just a couple miles from my office. It took place in a spot where I regularly visit and drive my family. I live in Las Vegas and I love the people in this city. Tourists don't think about the community of people behind Las Vegas. They just think "Sin City," but it's so much more.
I hope you get a refund on your taxes this year!
