Welcome 

THERE'S LIFE BEYOND DEATH:  COUNT ON IT!

April 18, 2021

 

I heard on Tuesday morning that Bobbie Flanders had gone to heaven.  She is the role model of what it means to be a Christian.  (Notice I don’t speak of her in the past tense because she’s more alive now than she’s ever been before!)  She would drive long distances to come faithfully to Sunday School and church, she was a loving presence in church, she’d minister to others unselfishly and she exhibited the fruit of the Spirit (love, joy, peace, patience, gentleness, goodness, faithfulness, meekness and temperance).  I was shocked one day when I visited her.  She expressed concern about whether she really was saved.  I thought, “If you’re not saved, ain’t nobody saved!”  But I calmly went over the plan of salvation and led her in a prayer to receive Christ.  I felt a little foolish doing so because she exuded Christ’s love.  It’s just so good to know that she’s happier now than she’s ever been, she’s healthier than she’s ever been and she’s free to serve God more efficiently than ever before.

Sunday I’m preaching on “There’s Life beyond Death: Count on It!” from Luke 7:11-17.  We’ll look at 1) “Count on Christ’s Compassion” (verses 11-13), 2) “Count on Resurrection” (verses 14-15) and 3) “Count on Glorifying God” (verses 16-17).  We’ll see Jesus raising the only son of a widow from the dead.  She was mourning not only the loss of a son but the loss of any hope of income in a male dominated society.  I’ve been to Nain where the miracle took place, a town that hugs a hillside in Northern Israel.  I imagined the widow’s great joy as Jesus proved a conqueror of death.

Let’s feel an unconquerable joy as we contemplate life beyond death.  The same Lord who can give us eternal life can give life abundant right now.  Let’s celebrate resurrection and Christ’s compassion as we glorify him.

With love in Christ,

Jim Meek
