Did you know that God gives us a do-over? Its called grace, and He provided an unlimited supply of it when Jesus died on the Cross for us. It releases us from our chains to the past and allows for our lives to be dictated not by our past but by God’s future. The sad thing, many people are still allowing their pasts to determine their identity, their self-worth, their expectations, their habits…you get the idea. God doesn’t intend for it to be that way. He has intervened in human history in Jesus to free us from our past, so we can have a complete do-over in our relationship with Him. It’s available, it’s ours, but we aren’t taking advantage of it.
Easter is the pinnacle of the Christian faith. It’s about Jesus dying on the cross and then rising from the dead three days later. But the journey to the empty tomb for Jesus was full of highs and lows. Join us as we learn from Jesus for dealing with the Peaks and Valleys of life.
As the new year begins, there are many things we can focus on. The best answers come from the best questions. The Bible may not answer all our questions, but there are Great Questions that the Bible does ask and give answers to. We will consider some of these Great Questions for our new year.
Most of us know what to expect when Christmas season approaches. We expect decorations, Christmas music, shopping, and food to increase exponentially. We expect to see the family and hear about Jesus’ birth. We may also expect some stress and winter blues. But the first Christmas came about in many unexpected ways. The future King would not be born in a castle. He would not be born in riches. There wasn’t a big pronounced celebration leading up to his arrival. In fact, he would be born in a carpenter’s home. And he would become a suffering savior. We’ll simplify the decorations and explore the Unexpectedness of Christmas as though Christmas was turned all upside down.
Great relationships are awesome. They feed love, encouragement, joy, and meaning into our lives. That’s the way God designed them. Unfortunately, for far too many, they can be a source of pain and disappointment. In this series, we will interact with the relationship principles of Jesus to discover how to take the mess out and put the value back into our relationships.
