Message: Imagine Redemption

Everybody is in need of redemption. God sent his son, Jesus, to pay the penalty and redeem us from our sin. Those in Christ are no longer slaves to sin because we are redeemed. Everything changes when you are redeemed. In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus taught about the Beatitudes or blessings, and how the redeemed can be blessed. If you have been redeemed, if you have Jesus, you are blessed. A blessed person is someone who is in an enviable position to receive God’s incredible favor and grace.

Jesus says blessed are the…

  1. poor in spirit
  2. those who mourn
  3. the meek
  4. those who hunger and thirst for righteousness
  5. the merciful
  6. the pure in heart
  7. the peacemaker
  8. the persecuted/slandered

Have you been redeemed? Are you walking with Jesus? Are you doing what He asked you to do? Imagine redemption! Jesus wants redeem the lost. Jesus wants to mend the broken pieces of your life and make you something beautiful for His glory. He wants to redeem your brokenness.

“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.” Romans 3:23-24 NIV

Message: Imagine a Loving Father

Imagination can be a very powerful tool. Today, I want you to imagine a loving father. In our culture today, a father figure is despaired a great deal. There are bad examples of fathers on prime time TV. All too often, there is the absent father. If we aren’t careful, these influences can and will affect our thoughts of our Almighty God who is a loving Father who wants to protect us.

You are a child of Jesus and He loves you. You are so special, He sent His son to save you from your sin. God is still in the saving business and you are never too far gone. Imagine a loving father. Today, come to Jesus.

Blessings,

The Resurrection – Pass It On (Matthew 28)

As a follower of Jesus, we are all on a mission from God. Our mission is to tell others the Good News about getting a second chance (John 3:17). God didn’t send Jesus to condemn us, but to save us. No matter your past, you can have a fresh start. Our mission is to tell others what God has promised. He has promised to make our paths straight (Proverbs 3:5-6), and that He will meet all of our needs (Philippians 4:19). Our mission is to tell others that a life of obedience to Christ can turn your life around (Matthew 28:20). Our mission is to tell others that Jesus is always with us wherever we go (Joshua 1:9 and Matthew 28:20). In Christ, you are not alone.

What’s on your lips? The Good News? When was the last time you shared the Good News? The Resurrection changes everything. Make a difference for eternity and pass it on!

“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit” Matthew 28:19 NIV

This Changes Everything (Matthew 28)

Jesus Christ came to this world on a rescue mission. He came to seek and to save. He came to make a difference in our lives. Sometimes we are guilty of living as if He was never here at all. Sometimes we act like He is still dead and the tomb is still occupied. If He is dead, then we have no hope and no reason to be here. Easter changes everything! The reality is that we have a living Christ, the tomb is empty, and the throne is occupied. The Resurrection of Jesus changes everything! The Resurrection opens up Heaven for all who believe. 

Blessings,
