Suggested Reading: Mark 16

(click scripture link to read online)

Many believe that it was inside this "Garden Tomb" in Jerusalem that Jesus' body was laid. This tomb was originally made for a shorter man, perhaps Joseph of Arimathea, but as you can see on the right, the end was dug out to fit a taller man's body.

Key Verse: Mark 16:15

And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.”

It’s a fact! Jesus is literally and physically risen from the dead and is alive forevermore. This is the cornerstone of the Church. According to Dr. Paul Maier, Professor of Ancient History at Western Michigan University, this is the most reliable truth from the first century in terms of documentation and reason for the exceedingly rapid growth of the Church. Prior to His death, except for the time Jesus sent out His followers on a practice run (Luke 10), He carried the ministry of the Word and the Holy Spirit Himself. The miraculous confirmation of the Word with miracles following was a normal occurrence. Now, Jesus passes the mission on to you and me, His followers. He commissions us to “GO!” When an imperative in grammar is spoken or written, the “YOU” is said to be “UNDERSTOOD.” Do we really understand? I believe the answer in “YES!”



Lord Jesus, I hear You “Loud and Clear.” By Your grace and my obedience, we are obeying Your command to “Go into all the world and preach the Gospel.” It’s a given that I’m going in my strong intercessory prayers, in my sacrificial giving of my money, and in my time. I say with Isaiah, as I read in Isaiah 6:1-8, “Here am I, send me.” In Your all-powerful Name, Jesus Christ, I pray. AMEN!


I’m asking my son, Ron, who is up for his devotions now (5:35 a.m.), to share with you the Mission of the new vision for “Crossroads TV.” Ron and his wife Ann are my helpers in making sure that this blog is posted at 6 a.m. each morning. Ron is a Host of the daily 100 Huntley Street telecast and “Spiritual Director” for the entire ministry. He will no doubt need more than my approximately 100 personal words, so I ask for your additional time today. Thank you so very much.

Yours for “ALL THE WORLD!”


Message From Ron Mainse:

Hi blog readers! Ron here. I hope you’re enjoying my Dad’s daily inspirations as much as I am!

If you happened to have caught 100 Huntley Street lately, you might have seen a five-part series by our CEO of Crossroads, Don Simmonds. Don has brought to us his many years of both business and ministry experience. And as a member of the Telecommunications Hall of Fame, he is uniquely qualified to cast a fresh, innovative vision for the future of this media ministry. In his segments on 100 Huntley Street, Don has been sharing the sobering realities of the negative media influences on our children and grandchildren. He describes it in terms of four “storm” systems in our 21st century society that are converging to create “The Perfect Storm” that is currently slamming the shores of our media landscape (you can watch Don’s five-part series online by clicking HERE). The bottom line is that WE HAVE TO DO SOMETHING to counteract the enemy’s influence on the next generation!

As Don shares in his presentation, one exciting opportunity we, at Crossroads, are pursuing is the launch of CROSSROADS TV…a new internet-based, multi-channel, online network that will have the potential to reach over 3.5 billion people around the world. There is a lot more I could write about it, but may I suggest that you take the time to watch Don’s video segments for more details? We have a goal to raise $800,000 by the end of this month to help make this vision a reality. Please keep us in prayer, and if God should lead you to help out financially, please call us with your support at 1-800-265-3100 or give online by clicking?HERE.

God bless you!

  1. Crossroads TV is embarking upon a wonderful new era in reaching the lost world for Christ. I love that Crossroads never rests on it’s laurels, content that the work is accomplished. Crossroads is all about new and innovative ideas, trying new technologies, and sincerely trying to reach the lost world for Christ. I pray for Ron, Don and for all the team at Crossroads as they strive to bring forth these new innovations to fruition; may this new endeavour be blessed with much success. Christ is Risen .. He is Risen Indeed!

  2. I enjoy everyday reading your blog David. I would like to ask for prayer from you and other blog readers. I have been told that there are some abnormalities of my pancreas.

Thank You God, and to all who said a prayer for me thank you and may God Bless you.
