The church is that place where you can grow. Join a Christian community and you can be sure that growth will happen.
Lent does not come easily to me but as an adult, I'm discovering the beauty of this season (even when I go looking for God in the dishwater).
If we're already forgiven, why do we need to repent?
“But if anybody does sin, we have an advocate with the Father—Jesus Christ, the Righteous One. He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world.” I John 2:1-2
How did I not know?
Sacrfice on repeat.
“Now Jesus was going up to Jerusalem. On the way, he took the Twelve aside and said to them, ‘We are going up to Jerusalem, and the Son of Man will be delivered over to the chief priests and the teachers of the law. They will condemn him to death and will hand him over to the Gentiles to be mocked and flogged and crucified. On the third day he will be raised to life!’” Matthew 20:17-19
“Jesus said to her, ‘I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live. And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this?’” John 11:25-26 (NKJV)
“On the evening of that first day of the week, when the disciples were together, with the doors locked for fear of the Jewish leaders, Jesus came and stood among them and said, ‘Peace be with you!’” John 20:19
“God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son so that whoever believes in him may not be lost, but have eternal life.” John 3:16 (NCV)
Who ARE you?
It's your last meal. What's on your plate?
Guilt. I feel its sting in the aftermath of the stupid choices I make. It can feel like God is a thousand miles away, but nothing could be further from the truth.
Jesus was just being a good Jew!
The enemy has nothing on you. In Christ, you are victorious!
Did Jesus die to enslave you or to set you free?
Holy Place: Access Granted.
It's more than just a cup of wine!
Who will roll away the stone?
The unlikely pattern that death yields life.
Take His sacrifice on the cross personally.
Because of Jesus, the pain of death has lost its sting.
Jesus is presenting you with an opportunity this Good Friday. Will you miss it?
This Easter, how will you spread the Good News?
See the Risen Christ today. Happy Easter Monday!
Jesus asked some very audacious questions?
Don't let Easter slip by without taking in the beauty of all that Jesus accomplished for you! Journey to the cross and to the empty tomb with these Scripture readings.
Do you believe that Jesus rose from the dead? What is the basis for that belief?
As you prepare to celebrate Easter, why not take the time to meet with friends, online or in person, and reflect on some of the major events of one week that changed the world forever?
Jesus' lament teaches us how to pray in tough times.
