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.

You Can Be Wise Too (Matthew 2:1-12)

Join Burgin Baptist Church and worship the Risen Lord with us! Today, Irma Woodrow shared her testimony filled with faith and missions. The Burgin Baptist choir lifted their voices in praise with singing the songs, “Worthy of My Lord,” “More Precious Than Silver,” and “O Come All Ye Faithful.” This Christmas season, Pastor Carl McCray shared from Matthew 2:1-12 NIV about the magi, the wise men, who followed a star to search for Jesus the Messiah.

The wise men were ready to follow God where ever He directed them. They searched for the Messiah, found HIm, and worshiped Him (Matthew 2:1-12). Like the wise men, you can be wise too.

  • The wise men were willing to step out in faith and follow.
  • The wise men were wiser than men of the world.
  • The wise men worshiped and gave gifts to Jesus.
  • The wise men went home a different way.

What or who are you worshiping today? What garners your time, your resources? That is probably what you are worshiping. You will be unfulfilled without Jesus. When you encounter Jesus and truly worship Him, you can’t go home the same way. You won’t be the same, and your life won’t be the same. Find satisfaction with Jesus today. May we all be wise like the wise men!

“After they had heard the king, they went on their way, and the star they had seen when it rose went ahead of them until it stopped over the place where the child was. When they saw the star, they were overjoyed. On coming to the house, they saw the child with his mother Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him. Then they opened their treasures and presented him with gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh. And having been warned in a dream not to go back to Herod, they returned to their country by another route.” Matthew 2:9-12

What if? Why Not? What if I let go of worry? (Matthew 6:19-34 NIV)

Today was another wonderful day of worship at Burgin Baptist Church!  Larry Inman told his testimony about the Good News. The Burgin Baptist choir led us in worship with music as they sang, “He Knows My Name.” Pastor Carl McCray helped us explore the possibilities of letting go of worry.

What if? Why not? What if I let go of worry?  

Worry left unchecked will choke us. Worry causes health problems, keeps you from enjoying the moment, and worst of all, worry is sin – a lack of faith! So how do you learn to let go of worry? Scripture gives us a directive. Don’t worry – God’s got this!
