The Resurrection and The Life03/31/15
This is a very important week for those of us who are believers. It starts with the procession of Jesus into Jerusalem. But the same one shouting "Hosanna" are shouting "Crucify him" just a few days later. This is the heart and soul of Christianity:...
God's Gift to You
Jesus is God's gift to each and everyone of us. When we receive Him we have life. And that's what this Easter season is all about. Salvation is all about life... the new life we have in Christ. Is it wrong to pray every night for the Lord to take me...
The Power to Believe
The focus of the ministry is the New Covenant and through this New Covenant we get to enjoy the love of God. Ephesians 3:16-21 "I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that...
"I am the First and the Last"
Let's look at Revelation 20:4-6 "I saw thrones on which were seated those who had been given authority to judge. And I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded because of their testimony about Jesus and because of the word of God..." Why is this...
Saved by the Resurrection
How important was the resurrection to Peter? In 1 Peter 1:3-5 we read "Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,...
He Remains Faithful
All this month we've been talking about the reality of the resurrection. But what is it that we get because of the resurrection? 2 Timothy 2:8, 9 "Remember Jesus Christ, raised from the dead, descended from David. This is my gospel, for which I am...
Power Over Death
Why is resurrection important to us? Our need is life. Paul wrote: "As for you, you were dead in your transgressions and sins..." How, through human effort, are you going to make yourself alive together with Christ? Do you have power over death? Can...
Grace is the Only Way
Whenever the grace of God proclaimed there are critics. But grace is the only way. Romans 6 states "What shall we say, then? Shall we go on sinning so that grace may increase?" If you think the Gospel is only forgiveness, it's no wonder all you do is...
Christ Has Indeed Been Raised
If we proclaim that Jesus Christ is alive than we believe that God raised Him from the dead. You see the resurrection in everything Paul wrote. 1 Corinthians 15:12-14 "But if it is preached that Christ has been raised from the dead, how can some of...
...Of First Importance
1 Corinthians 15:1- "Now, brothers and sisters, I want to remind you of the gospel I preached to you, which you received and on which you have taken your stand..." Jesus who was crucified was raised from the dead. Is 1 Timothy written to a believer or...
Do You Believe Christ is Risen?
When you think that we who were dead in sin have been raised in Christ it's simply amazing. We see the resurrection of Jesus on nearly every page of the new testament. Romans 4:23-25 "The words 'it was credited to him' were written not for him alone,...
His Origin is from Above
We're coming out next month with a CD called "Proof". It's about the evidence for the resurrection. Jesus was raised from the dead and there's so much significance for us today. Romans 1:2 "the gospel he promised beforehand through his prophets in the...
Declared to Be the Son of God
In Romans 1 Paul writes: "...the gospel he promised beforehand through his prophets in the Holy Scriptures regarding his Son, who as to his earthly life was a descendant of David, and who through the Spirit of holiness was appointed the Son of God in...
Raised from the Dead
Of all the things in human history the resurrection of Jesus Christ is the one that brings hope to our lives. Consider this in 1 Peter, "Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a...
I Want to Know Christ
We know Jesus is alive because He was raised back to life. It's the center point of the New Testament. In Philippians 3:10-11 we read "I want to know Christ--yes, to know the power of his resurrection and participation in his sufferings, becoming like...

Hope in the Resurrection
"Mayday, Mayday, I'm sinking". This was the beginning line of an email I recently received. This man shared his story of struggle, pain, doubt and fear. My heart went out to him as I read these words - "Faith is hard for me. I have asked Christ come...
A Choice That Comes by Faith
The fact that Jesus Christ is alive today allows us to live a new life. We want something new and its available to us in Christ. This is the most important topic we could talk about... a new citizenship, forgiveness, life. He saved us so that He could...
