Mr. Spriggs

Mr. Spriggs Bar B Q is the greatest local commercial of all time. So great that I ventured to Mr. Spriggs with my good friend Justin Hitchcock last year. The place was as advertised...the meat truly fell off the bone. 

Finally they are getting some national recognition:

Joseph/Jesus and his Brothers

Jesus has been lost to the grave, but three days later reappears with all authority in heaven and on earth.  His brothers (28:10) follow Him to Galilee, and find Him on a mountain, where the eleven bow down and worship (28:17).  Some doubt.  Well they might, and not just the resurrection itself.  They might be doubting Jesus’ intentions.  After all, the last time He saw them, He saw their backsides as they fled from the garden.  They’ve all abandoned Him.  Are they about to hear a “Depart from Me, I never knew you”?

No.  They are about to hear a “What you intended for evil, God intended for good, to save all these alive.”  Jesus is the new Joseph, lost and found, humiliated and exalted, now surrounded by His eleven brothers, who prostrate themselves before Him (cf. Genesis 37:9).  He is the new Joseph, revealed to His guilty brothers, reconciled.

Two Weeks Late

Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male a year old. You may take it from the sheep or from the goats, and you shall keep it until the fourteenth day of this month, when the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill their lambs at twilight. Then they shall take some of the blood and put it on the two doorposts and the lintel of the houses in which they eat it… The blood shall be a sign for you, on the houses where you are. And when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and no plague will befall you to destroy you, when I strike the land of Egypt. (Exodus 13:5-7;13)

Luther, Being Luther

“I understand that this is the week for the church collection, and many of you do not want to give a thing.  You ungrateful people should be ashamed of yourselves. . . . I am sorry I ever freed you from the tyrants and the papists.  You ungrateful beasts, you are not worthy of the treasure of the gospel.  If you don’t improve, I will stop preaching rather than cast pearls before swine.”

Martin Luther, exhorting his congregation, according to Roland Bainton, Here I Stand(New York, 1950), pages 351-352.
