Description We will begin our summer sermon series on the life of Peter.As we will see, Peter’s willingness (and ours) to follow Jesus leads to an ever-deepening appreciation and application of God’s grace.There’s much work to be done in a person such as Peter, as there is in us.But then again, seeing what God can do in and through the likes of Peter, is why it is called amazing grace!
Description The resurrection of Jesus from the dead is the central fact of Christian history.Only Christianity has a God who became human, literally died for his people, and was raised again in glory and power to rule over his church forever.The resurrection is the one belief that unites and inspires all Christians. Jesus Christ rose from the dead!
Description The truth never loses its power.People; however, often lose their grip on the truth.Like the Corinthians, we cannot afford to stray from Christ.Every claim about Christianity has its roots in the resurrection.What we believe about this life and eternity depends upon what Jesus did with death.God’s word calls us back to the center.
The Day Death Died: Implications of the Resurrection
Description If the resurrection means anything to us, it will settle our mind, strengthen our will, and cause us to STRIVE in the work of the Lord. The same power that raised Jesus from the dead, is also available and at work in us.
Description Our resurrected bodies will be better than anything we can imagine, for they will be made to last forever.The Bible does not reveal everything about our new bodies, but they will be perfect, without sickness or death.This truth should give us hope as we long for Christ’s appearing.
Description Death is certain, but God's promise of the resurrection of believers is also certain. Why is that promise so powerful, and what difference can the resurrection of Jesus make in our daily lives?As Christians, we will have victory!
Description Mary the mother of Jesus is an excellent example of a mother who had struggles in this life, yet she never lost sight of her high calling to be a mother.We will look at her life and see the source of her strength.
Andrew was the first disciple to figure out who Jesus was; the Anointed One, the Christ, the One that they had been waiting for, the Messiah. He immediately knew what he needed to do first; invite others “to come and see.”
Description Jesus’ death, burial, and resurrection gave value to everyone, because everyone matters to God.In this short series, we will examine the value of every soul to God and how he has given us the ministry of being His ambassadors.
Description When we come into the presence of God and seek His face, He turns our worship into a worship of gladness and joy. When we turn everything over to Him, He will turn our mourning into gladness.This Thanksgiving, let us come and bow down in His presence, lay it all at His feet that we can worship Him with gladness.
Description Epaphras' earnest prayers for the believers show his deep love and concern for them. Just as Paul was striving for the church in ministry, so Epaphras was struggling in intercessory prayer.Today, we also must wrestle in prayer for one another.
