What's happening [April 8-14]



Sunday's Message
April 1, 2018

SEEK THE LIVING LORD

There is a book that changed my life, I was drowning in depression, but when I read this book I was lifted higher than the angels! The book is The Saving Life of Christ by Major W. Ian Thomas.  It states that what makes Christianity more than a religion or an ethic is the saving life of Christ.  We usually speak of the death of Christ as providing our way to heaven.  this is true.  But we must also emphasize that his resurrected life can live through us.  Thus in Romans 5:10 Paul wrote,

For is while we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of his son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.

Resurrection Sunday I'm preaching on "Seek the Living Lord" from Luke 24:1-10.  Women went to anoint Jesus' body after his burial in a cave.  Early Sunday morning was the first chance they had to do the task in morning light after the mandatory Sabbath rest.  But instead of a dead body, they saw two angels who rebuked them with the question.

Why do you seek the living among the dead?  He is not here. He's risen!

Many people seek a dead Christ -- a Christ who can get them to heaven by his sacrificial death but who can't live through them now to lift them above their self-centeredness, depression, anxiety, anger, prejudice and meaninglessness existence.  We must seek a living Christ and let him fill us and lift us up!  Join us Easter Sunday as we seek the living Lord.  In the poem, Ash Wednesday T. S. Eliot wrote.

No place for grace for those avoid the face,
No time to rejoice for those who walk among noise and deny the voice.

So take some time to seek a living Lord in our worship service this Sunday.
By the way, didn't you love the children's musical last Sunday?  It brought me to tears!

On Good Friday is our Stations of the Cross from 5:00 till 8:00 in the worship center. On Easter don't forget Sunday School at 9:00 as well as worship at 10:30.  Bring family and friends and seek God's face with us!

With love in Christ,
Dr. Jim Meek

WE ARE STARTING A LIBRARY MINISTRY

 


Message from the Youth Leader:

                The musical was last Sunday; the cast party, last night; Stations of the Cross and the Lock-In are tonight; and Easter is this Sunday; man, this week has been crazy!  All of what we’ve been up to has been wonderful to be a part of and experience and yet, calls to mind our delicate balance between busy-ness and worship.  We’ve all been called to “to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” (Ephesians 2:10 NIV), and yet Jesus called out the Pharisees for being too caught up in their “good works”.  Where is the barrier between work and worship?

                Jesus answers this question with his typical type of challenge: “’Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.” (Matthew 22:36-40 NIV).  This is one of the many moments where I interpret as Jesus telling us “I gave you a brain for a reason, use it!”  There is no specific line to be crossed, no do-this-don’t-do-that kind of rule that we can mindlessly follow, or mindfully tempt.  We are called to judge each action independently against the rubric of the greatest commandments.  We are not robots coded to have rules for every eventuality, but organic creations with the capacity to make our own decisions.  Our “makers-mark” is our common desire to love and be loved.  Our calling is to be mindful of the way we spend our days and measure our actions against these commandments.  The barrier between work and worship is clear and undefined, simple and complex, challenging and humbling, what a wonderful thing to be trusted by the Creator to seek ever greater forms of worship!

Upcoming Lessons:

  • Sunday 4/1: Luke 9:18-47: “Who do you say I am?”
  • Wednesday 4/4: Ecclesiastes: Take 2.5, but it’s all Hevel anyway…

Event Updates:

  • 3/30-31/2018, Tomorrow Night!: “Exit” the Lock-In! 5PM-9AM

Prayer Requests:

  • The Lock-In!:  Good kids, good leaders, good times, good worship, good fellowship…  Please pray for a wonderful time for all involved!
  • The Lock-In!:  Being locked in a room with 30+ teenagers for 16 hours.  If that doesn’t inspire you to pray (or cower in fear or weep with pity), then I’d love to have you help at the next one!

Greg Horton
Youth Director

STATIONS OF THE CROSS

Experience Good Friday like never before. Stations of the Cross is a powerful way to contemplate, and enter into, the mystery of Jesus' gift of  himself to us. It takes the reflection out of your head, and makes it an imaginative exercise through prayer, senses and emotions.
