It’s been a very strange season. There’s a lot missing from regular life, more than we’re probably comfortable with.
“Jesus called out with a loud voice, ‘Father, into your hands I commit my spirit.’ When he had said this, he breathed his last.” - Luke 23:46
We are celebrating Easter very differently this year — online, and by phone.
The loss of a loved one can fill our hearts with grief, fear, and consternation. We might try to avoid thinking about it, but sooner or later, death comes to us all. This series invites us to fearlessly explore our fear of death and how faith in Jesus overcomes it.
The abundant life Jesus offers you is a journey of faith. It won't happen by accident. Daily surrender is required, but it's not about letting go and letting God. It's about running to Jesus, holding on to him, and saying "Yes" to what he asks you to do. It's admitting that you can't do it without him — that you need the Holy Spirit to empower you.
As with any relationship, developing a relationship with Jesus takes time and energy. Whether you've just decided to follow Jesus, or have recommitted your life to him, this series of four articles will lay a firm foundation to help you grow deeper in your relationship with Jesus.
If you've recently decided to commit your life to Jesus, you might be thinking, “Now what?” When you choose to follow Jesus, you don’t just have a new faith: you begin a relationship. But what does it mean to be in a relationship with God? What should you expect? And most importantly, how do you even begin to personally know the God of the universe? In this series, we’ll explore these and other questions to help you get started on this exciting adventure.
We believe Jesus still speaks today. In fact, we're convinced that he loves to share his heart with you. Can you recall a time when God clearly spoke to you? If so, you may wonder why that doesn't happen more often. God's voice isn't always really obvious. It can seem distant and hidden, so we all need more practice.
