“Living a Resurrected Life”

We can’t talk about Easter without talking about death. The disciples
went to Jesus’ grave, expecting to find him dead in His grave. The day
started in the dread of death, but resurrection brought about the surprise
of life. What if we were more aware that we will one day live? How would
that affect the way we live? Today, we want to connect the promise of
resurrection with the hope of a full, courageous, and loving life. Once we
have the assurance of our future, we will be ready to live how God wants
us to live now.

“Holding Fast to the Head of the Whole Body”

Colossians 2:18-19 English Standard Version (ESV) 18 Let no one disqualify you, insisting on asceticism and worship of angels, going on in detail about visions, puffed up without reason by his sensuous mind, 19 and not holding fast to the Head, from whom the whole body, nourished and knit together through its joints and ligaments, grows with a growth that is from God.

“God So Loved the World” 2nd service

Although most Christians consider John 3:16 their favorite verse, they do not think about its message very deeply. The perplexity of the verse is demonstrated in 1 Timothy 4:10. How can God be the Savior of all men, but eternal salvation is distinct from temporal salvation? God giving His Son as the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world (John 1:29) does not mean all are saved. Not all have faith (2 Thessalonians 3:1) and Jesus is a stone of stumbling (1 Peter 2:8; Isaiah 8:14). How does God love the world?

“Blessed Are the Gentle: Finding My Identity in Christ”

The Evangelism Explosion presentation explains, “Heaven (eternal life) is a free gift you cannot earn it or deserve it.” But what about the earth? Have you considered that the Christian shall also inherit the earth? And it is neither the ambitious nor the important “Christian” who shall inherit it, but the gentle and meek; the humble. Are you trusting Christ for the blessedness that He promises in being gentle?

A Time to Mourn: Finding My Identity in Christ

Do you aspire to greatness? Do you have what it takes to be great? But how do your desires measure up to the will of God? What if being great meant that you were the least? What if significance in the kingdom of God meant that you were insignificant in the kingdom of this world? What if the way to finding comfort was not through the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life (1 John 2:15-17), but through grief and mourning?

“In Him…”

Ephesians 1:3-10 (ESV) Spiritual Blessings in Christ 3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places, 4 even as he chose us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before him. In love 5 he predestined us for adoption to himself as sons…
