CTN 53: Ghana Trip Journal Entries, Part 1

April 29, 2020

As we are all imaging our next trip right now, I thought this would be the perfect time to share some of my journal entries from previous trips. In this episode, we will begin to take a look at my time in Ghana. While this was a mission trip - I do want to remind you that the Christian Travelers' Network believes that all trips (vacation, commuting to work, etc.) are experiences that glorify God.

CTN 51: Jesus’ Resurrection

CTN 51: Jesus’ Resurrection

April 15, 2020

Thomas doubted. He wanted to put his trust in his eyes rather than in his faith. Have you ever been tempted to trust your eyes? You saw God show up in your travels last week, but this week - where is He? We conclude our Lenten series by looking at Jesus' Resurrection in John 20:1-31.

In response to this episode we are holding each other accountable in our devotional reading by sharing in our Facebook Group:  Why is tempting for you to put your turst in your sight rather than in your faith? Why's it easier to trust when you "see God in your travels" or you "feel Him in worship," but not when you can't seem to "find Him?" When you read John 20:1-31 what verses does the Holy Spirit drawing your attention to? What verses do you have questions about? 

You can also join the group's Lenten devotional reading plan with other Christian Travelers "40 Days Journeying with Jesus." Let's hold each other accountable to being in God's Word!

CTN 50: Jesus’ Crucifixion

CTN 50: Jesus’ Crucifixion

April 8, 2020

 When asked who they wanted released from prison - Barnabas (a filthy scoundrel) or Jesus (sinless in every way) they cheered "Barnabas!" When asked what to do with Jesus they shouted "Crucify him." Would you cheer to have Jesus killed? Would you cheer to have a criminal released and the Savior executed? This is part 6 of our Lenten series, where we are looking at the story of Jesus' Crucifixion in Matthew 27:11-66.

In response to this episode we are holding each other accountable in our devotional reading by sharing in our Facebook Group: If you could stand in Barnabas' shoes, how would you feel seeing the Savior of the World take your place? What are some praises you have for humble and obedient Savior? When you read Matthew 27:11-55 what verses does the Holy Spirit drawing your attention to? What verses do you have questions about?

CTN 49: Judas Betrays Jesus

CTN 49: Judas Betrays Jesus

April 1, 2020

Jesus called Judas out at the dinner table: "The one who dipped his hand in this dish with me will betray me." All eyes were on Judas, questioning and wondering what Jesus meant. And did Judas still go commit that sin? Yes. Would you still go commit a sin even if Jesus called you out on it? As we continue our Lenten Series (part 5), we are taking a look at Matthew 26:1-27:10 and examining the events that led to Jesus' crucifixion. 

The goal of our Lenten series is to bring Christian Travelers together in Bible Study so that we can be holding each other accountable in our faith walk. In response to this episode we are inviting everyone to respond to the following questions in our Facebook Group: How would you mentally, physically, or emotionally respond if Jesus called you out before you committed a sin? What would be going on in your mind as you committed the sin? When you read Matthew 26:1-27:10, what things did the Holy Spirit draw your attention to or would you like clarification on?

CTN 48: The Last Supper

CTN 48: The Last Supper

March 25, 2020

What would you do if you knew you had only a few days left to live? Would you be like Jesus, and wash the disciples feet? That is one humble leader, and an attitude I often fail to replicate. In this week's episode, we continue our Lenten series (part 4) by looking at the Last Supper, John 13:1-14:31.

In response to this episode we are holding each other accountable in our devotional reading by sharing in our Facebook Group: What would you do if you only had a few days left to live? How does that compare to Christ's attitude? What else in this section, John 13:1-14:31, is the Holy Spirit drawing your attention to? What do you have questions about?
