Our God is the Vine; we are the branches. To remain fruitful in life we need to stay connected to him. A large part of that is connecting others to the Vine as well. This week we take a trip to Philippi, a Roman colony in the ancient world to see the Apostle Paul in action.
Does that sound like freedom to you? Doing what you want when you want to do when you want to do it? While that may sound good – living just for yourself is an empty life. True freedom is doing what God wants me to do. Because of Easter, there is No Fear in Freedom.
What does it mean to have no fear in doubt? We’ll look at a few case studies this Sunday – Doubting Thomas Sunday – to see how people have handled doubts in the past. The resurrection chases our doubts away! No fear!
Easter means no fear! What are a few your biggest fears? As get to the top of the list, death is usually one of the items. Death of a loved one, your own death… Easter changes everything, yes, even taking away the fear of death. Join us as we celebrate the resurrection.
How to live – that is the question. I have to ask you – have you ever seen death? Our society is quarantined off from death for the most part. Death is something that happens in the hospital or maybe in a hospice setting. Because of Easter life is more certain!
This Sunday we’ll answer the question, “What do we do when our hearts are troubled?” The takes takes us to the night that Jesus was betrayed. That might seem like quite the jump, but his words of comfort to his disciples are all the more sure now that we live in the reality of Easter. He lives!
