Share Your Experience of the Resurrected Lord 4.8.18

Sunday's Message
April 8, 2018



 Howard Carter got financial backing from Lord Carnarvon of England to search for the tomb of an obscure pharaoh.  After years of searching in the Valley of the Kings Carnarvon was ready to stop all funding.  But in 1922 Carter cabled him that he’d found the tomb.  Carnarvon hurried to Egypt and together they prepared to open the secret door.  Carter drilled a hole in it and put a candle through the hole.  Carnarvon asked, “Can you see anything?”  Carter replied, “Yes, wonderful things!”  He later said that details “emerged from the mist … strange animals, statues and gold – everywhere the glint of gold.”  The archaeologists found 5,398 articles including three coffins within coffins like little Russian dolls.  The final coffin was solid gold and contained the body of the boy king who ruled at nine years old and died at nineteen.  His name was Tutankhamun.  We call him King Tut.

The discovery made Egyptology wildly popular.  That once obscure pharaoh is now the most popular pharaoh.  But he’s been dead for 3,000 years.  Christians serve a king who is alive forever!  Sunday I’m preaching on “Share Your Experience of the Resurrected Lord” from Luke 24:13-35 about Jesus walking with the disciples of Emmaus.  Once they recognized him they told everyone that they had experienced the resurrected Lord.  Won’t you tell others about your experience with the resurrected Lord?  It can impact eternity!
My thanks go out to Sallyann Brittain, Deb McGruder, Greg Horton and many others who made our Good Friday events a meaningful experience.  I praise God for his goodness in giving us a wonderful Easter!  Let’s keep the resurrection spirit going through faithful Sunday School and worship attendance each week.  Also, men, don’t forget our Men’s Breakfast this Saturday at 7:00 where we’ll focus on keeping our eyes on Jesus.

With love in Christ,
Dr. Jim Meek
