“Jerusalem the Golden – with milk and honey blessed!” Feeling weary and oppressed? Can we ever comprehend what joys await us beyond the pearly gates? This Sunday – Saints Triumphant Sunday – we take time to ponder all that is heaven. In our message we’ll find that death means you’re only asleep in Jesus.
Are you looking forward to the end of the world? That might not sound like a great way to start your week, but God’s take on the end of the world is a great source of comfort for the Christian. Do you see the injustice in the world? God does too! Do you see the crippling effects of sin in the world? Of course, God sees the suffering. We learn from Scripture that creation groans under the weight of sin. Come this Sunday to hear God’s rescue plan. Because when God ends the world, he will take us home to heaven.
A passing glance at the news and current events would show one thing – no one seems to be in control. On this Christ the King Sunday we remember that Jesus is, indeed, in control of the world. He does so for the good of his church. Join us this Sunday as we close out the church year worshiping Christ the King.
One of the more confusing topics surrounding the Bible is the end of the world. It sounds hard to believe, doesn’t it? Won’t the sun come up tomorrow just like it has every day since God started it on its daily march? It will, unless God commands it to stop. The Bible is clear that the world will end when God ends it. More importantly will you be ready when he does? What will you say as you stand before him?
What does it mean to really live? I don’t think we need to hang off the front of the Titanic and feel the wind race through our hair to really live. Jesus tell us that he has life. One day, on the Last Day, life will destroy death for good. Join us as we take a glimpse into eternity on Saints Triumphant Sunday.
Veteran’s Day is a great time to honor those who serve to protect our nation. Freedom isn’t free. That’s a well known truth to Christians. It is also true of every America. This Sunday we’ll take the opportunity to thank our God for the freedoms we enjoy and honor those who have served and fought to preserve those freedoms. Please take a moment to thank a veteran for his or her service to our nation.
