from the pastor
Jesus is risen! Blessings! But if Jesus didn’t risefrom the dead, we’re wasting the precious littletime we have: “eat, drink, be merry, fortomorrow we die” and there’s nothing more. Butif Jesus did rise from the dead, it’s somethingthat no one else has ever done, and God’s Worddeclares that Jesus “was designated the Son ofGod in power by His resurrection” (Rom.1: 4).
If Jesus rose from the dead, then we’re not
merely dealing with an event, but confronted by
a person who is “in your face” because He is
alive. You can choose Him or reject Him. Thoseare the options
the only ones. That is whyignoring Him or sidelining Him are also rejectionof Him as the One Who is present in your life.
For the last month we’ve been announcing that
there is a check-in time for our services. Did you know that
in time” is straight from
? It was Jesus who told the parable of5 foolish young women who were late getting toa wedding and found no welcome. Their pleas tobe excused were inadmissible. It was all becausethey had missed the check-in time.Look at it from another angle. At a churchservice who do you think is the host? A pastor isonly the caretaker. God is not one of theattendees. It is to address God that we attend.It is to hear what He has to say that we attend.
It’s obvious that God is the Host. It is a sign ofdisrespect to the host to arrive late. Shouldn’t
God be respected? You decide. Vote with yourfeet.
In Christ’s love,
at 6 p.m. every Sunday.
