Jesus, Jesus The Son of God




Life Through the Cross:
I have been thinking of the Easter season lately, preparing thoughts for sermons. My mind naturally goes to the Crucifixion with all its implications and drama. The world was literally saved because of God who became man to die for our sins. He taught us how to live and then died a horrible death that we might die in His arms, carried away upon a chariot of angelic wings to heaven rather than hauled away in chains to perdition. We have a hope beyond the grave. The greatest thing that could be done to harm an individual was death itself. But Paul cries, “O Grave, where is thy victory, O Death where is thy sting?” Christ’s death made it to where we can live forever. Every drop of blood spilled till his whole life ebbed away and His spirit was held in custody until Sunday Morning. The young man at the tomb asked a startling question: “Why seek ye the living among the dead?” Christ can be found, not simply in history books and the Bible. He still walks our roads, sits in our services, paints the sunrises and sunsets, and resides in the hearts of His children. We have a message that has grown and lived due to His eternal presence that spans generation after generation. We have a God alive and well. We have eternal life that shall never die, but pass easily through the shades of death, and cross over to the other side and rest on the banks underneath the evergreen trees. Let us with tender steps and hallowed stride enter and pass through another Easter season, gazing upon the Cross silhouetted against a dark cloudy sky, and let us ponder deeply the gift given to us, the mystery of His death and Resurrection. Let us look upon the sunrise as its rays spear the heavens and the clouds blush beneath its tread and let us think again of that Eternal sunrise that awaits all His redeemed in the First Resurrection.

Tonight after the evening service there will be a church meeting to discuss fall revival dates and the calling of an evangelist. There were also still many questions that people had about the Pilgrim Nazarene Church. We will take the time to answer more questions. concerning this church decision.-

The Sprinkler System in the backyard is about repaired so that we can proceed with measuring and ordering dirt and sod. I had to run new lines, replace cracked sprinkler heads, patch and rewire broken valves and joints. Everything works! We have yet to estimate the cost of the sod, since we are redesigning the back yard. Estimates gathered to have it laid were in the $3000 range and so we decided to lay it ourselves. Will keep you updated. Pastor Mike
