Did you feel like Easter wasn’t enough? I don’t mean that Jesus’ death, burial, and resurrection wasn’t enough. I mean, do you feel like your students need to really understand Jesus’ RESURRECTION even more? Here are my 6 favorite resources on RESURRECTION:

We had severe storm warnings on this Wednesday night, so we actually had to cancel services for that night. I had thought through and studied up on this sermon so much, that I couldn’t just not preach it! We have got to get back to “Following Jesus” next week. So I decided just to preach this passage to CBSM from my recliner. I think this passage gives so much meaning to our very lives. It answers so many questions like: Was Jesus really resurrected from the dead? Is Jesus remaining human forever? What does Jesus’ resurrection mean for our lives today? How can we live more and more for eternity? What will our eternal bodies be like? What will we do for all of eternity? Will we be human beings forever? And what does all of this have to do with our lives in the hear and now? Feel free to check it all out!

I got several hits from that site! There seemed to be a response on that site pointed toward me which read “people won’t remember what you said, people won’t remember what you’ve done…but people will remember how you made them feel.” Just to respond to that person…if in any way I made you feel less of a person or less than loved, I truly apologize!

But, if my comments made you feel a little convicted, guilty, or shameful of your lifestyle, I cannot apologize for that because those feelings haven’t come from me…but from the Holy Spirit (John 16:8-11).
In fact, please know that I myself often feel convicted, guilty, and shameful. Continue reading →
Imagine you’re a missionary sharing the gospel with a village who has never heard about Jesus.You begin with creation, move through the sinful fall of man, and continue to the gospel of Christ.Just as you have finished teaching them about the death of Jesus that paid the penalty for their sin, a villager stands up, draws back his bow, and pierces an arrow through your heart, which leaves you dead on the ground.If this village never sees a Bible or hears the gospel again, can they be saved without knowing that Jesus rose from the dead?Hmmmm?
