“The Victory of the Resurrection”

None of us likes to lose. In fact, just the inevitability of loss can lead to depression, discouragement, and half-hearted efforts. We ask, “Will it even matter?” A false belief was spreading among the Corinthian church, leaving them with a sense of inevitable loss – the false belief that there was no resurrection (1 Corinthians 15:12). In this one belief, they lost their hope in heaven and the immediate consequence was them beginning a pattern of immoral living (1 Corinthians 15:32-34). In order to really enjoy the blessings of God, we need to embrace the fullness of Jesus’ work. We are not left as losers in the game of life. No, Jesus’ resurrection is our victory, something that changes the way we live. Today we want to look at the victory of the resurrection.

Do you hang on to the wreckage, or do you let go and grab hold of the invitation to be saved? Jesus is the only Savior, for this life and the next. Are you hungering and thirsting for Him and for His righteousness?

“Lamentation: Between Grief and Hope”

Psalm 74 (NKJV) A Plea for Relief from Oppressors A Contemplation of Asaph. 74 O God, why have You cast us off forever? Why does Your anger smoke against the sheep of Your pasture? 2 Remember Your congregation, which You have purchased of old, The tribe of Your inheritance, which You have redeemed— This Mount Zion where You have dwelt. 3 Lift up Your feet to the…
