April 17, 2016 “Plan for a Reunion”

God is all about life! One day death will be destroyed because God is the God of the living, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Death, for the Christian, is viewed as sleep, and we awaken with Jesus in a far better place – in paradise. We will recognize each other. We’ll be gathered in a reunion with our people. That’s the Christian hope!

April 10, 2016 “The Best is Yet to Come!”

Only two things last in this world, God’s Word and our soul. If we invest our life in things that last, anything that nurtures our soul, our love for Christ, lasts. Living for the future will put our everyday life in perspective. In living for the future, particularly a heavenly one, don’t assume it’s a long way off. Eventually distant things arrive. The Best is yet to come!

April 3, 2016 “Hoax or Hope?”

If Christ has not been raised from the dead, your faith is futile. But Christ has been raised! Many people saw Jesus and spoke with Him, including two people, James and Paul, that were not followers before the resurrection.

Live your life in light of the resurrection and eternity. Invest your life in things that last!

March 27, 2016 “Pilate Discovers the Truth!”

Pilate’s heart was challenged by Jesus and those around Him. Pilate knew Jesus was innocent of any wrong doing. He saw,(darkness at noon), felt (earthquake), and heard (stories of dead people rising up) hard to explain events around Jesus’ death. He knew the truth about his soldiers seeing an angel at the tomb, and credible reports of multiple people visiting with Jesus after He rose. If Jesus is alive, death has no power over Him. His kingdom is greater than any earthly kingdom. Absolutely anything is possible!

March 20, 2016 “Jesus Invites Us to Follow”

On Palm Sunday Jesus road into Jerusalem on a donkey just like a King would return from a victorious battle, coming in peace. Jesus was fulfilling Zachariah 9:9 as a gentle King coming with salvation. But people misunderstood his object lesson. More than that, Jesus didn’t correct them. As a gentleman, He doesn’t force Himself on us. He invites us to have peace with God, salvation, but it’s up to us to daily follow Him.
