II Corinthians 5:1-10 Introduction I have a tent which was brand new when my parents bought it in 1957 in order to go on a camping trip to the Black Hills in South Dakota. I remember going on that trip, even though I was only 5 years old. How exciting it was for my parents to have that new tent. We used…

As our complete pattern and example, Jesus was born "among his brethren" and "made in all points like we are", "learned obedience from the things which He suffered", thereby perfecting his character. He then died, was resurrected by God, judged and glorified. This pattern shows what we have to look forward to as well! Today, we focus on the resurrection as it pertains to God's plan, and in particular from Job's point of view. We take his perspective since it helps to underscore the fact that this was God's plan from the beginning - even before Jesus was born. Job prophesied about a redeemer, speaking of Him as though he already was. We are ALL mortal, and will eventually die – nothing we can do except be servants of God, then we’ll have hope in a future resurrection. Join us to learn about Job’s heartfelt, overwhelming joy as he looked forward to a full bodily resurrection, and the evidence that backs this!

But death is a different story when…

Our Christ, who established all proper boundaries, came to us to destroy the boundaries which we have created. We have, and continue, to build boundaries that we ourselves cannot overcome and it has taken the very God of all things to do so. Through our choices, we determine that some humans are worth less than others, creating barriers of racism, classism and hierarchies of value that divide and destroy. By our careless actions, we establish hollow religion which, rather than drawing us to God, actually turns us from true relationship with Him! By our sin, we invited the barrier of death into all mankind.
I find the old saying, “seeing is believing,” a bit of a lie. There are plenty of people who would say I don’t believe in the Bible because well I have never seen a miracle or I would have to see Jesus or I need to see God to believe in Him. If He were real He would show me a sign. Those same people…

April 5, 2015 Read Isa 53:6-10 – A cartoon depicts the living room of a retirement home. A man looking totally dejected sits facing the wall, window shade drawn, paper fallen in his lap. Others look equally dejected. One man says to another, “Last week, I think I had a near-life experience.” That vividly…
