This Easter I want us to reflect upon the resurrection of Christ and its significance to us. We should reflect on this everyday, but today is a special day in which we celebrate the risen Christ. May our heart’s burn with passion for the Risen Lord as we take a tour of the scriptures and the ones that were witness to the events before and after Christ arose.
Picture it with your spiritual eyes for a moment with me as we journey through the life of Christ on this earth. Jesus has been born. A sweet little baby in a manger, he has grown up working and has been walking in the world. He has called his disciples to follow him. He has been doing many miracles the past few years. He has healed the sick of various diseases, he has opened blinded eyes, made the lame to walk, and brought the dead back to the life. For a moment imagine that you have been walking with him during this time and witnessed all the things he has been doing. You have been with him as he taught the Sermon on the Mount of Olives, with him as he taught in the temple. You have heard with your ears the very voice of the Darling Lamb of God teaching the words of life.
John 6:37 “All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.”
He will cleanse you from all unrighteousness and make you a new creation, giving you a new and fresh beginning. You can start over in Christ. Don’t turn him away because you are in love with your own ideas or wrong beliefs. Research this for yourself and accept his free gift of salvation before it is everlasting to late. Jesus died and was resurrected for you and me. The work is finished. Don’t make it complicated. All you have to do is receive it. It’s yours if you want it. It’s up to you.
This morning as I write this lesson that God has placed upon my heart, I am humbled that God has chosen me to do this. I will not pretend to anyone that I have all the answers in life. Beloved, I do not, I’m learning everyday of my life and most of the lessons that God gives me, are things that He is teaching me as I teach them to you. I am a servant of the Most High and growing in faith every single day and I pray that never stops. No, I do not know everything, but what I do know is this, God does, and God is faithful and He will NEVER fail. What He says, He will do. What He places on your heart to do, He will make a way for you to do it and do it successfully! He can open doors that no one can close, and He can close doors that cannot be opened again unless He allows it. He tells us so many times in His word to trust and obey Him in all things. He has proven Himself over and over again. Today we will be looking at an event in God’s word where God asked His people to trust Him in a situation that they had never been through before and they were afraid but they did it anyway and God honored it. I know there are many of you going through things that you have never been through before and maybe you fear that you will fail or maybe it seems that you do not have the skill or the strength to do it. My family and I are going through a time like this right now. A situation that we have never been through before and it is very hard and very painful but God is teaching me this lesson and so I pray that those of you who are going through the same kind of experience will be encouraged and those of you who are not, know that you will in the future if you continue to grow in faith, and it is my prayer that you will remember it and that it will help you on your journey when you come to this place. I love you all, and I am honored to serve you with this writing for the Glory of God.
Lord I pray for everyone that is on a new journey with You. Father give us strength and courage to step out on faith everyday and know that You will not fail. Father thank You for calling us and for putting so much thought in to Your children. Help us to place our thoughts continually on You. You are The Most High and we love You and bow before You always. Father I pray today that You encourage Your children and Father bless and favor this ministry so that we can reach many for Your honor and glory. In the Mighty and Precious name of Your Son JESUS we pray.
Maybe that is what we should do: instead of complaining about what our role in life is, we should change our attitude. Perhaps we should put a little laughter into our days:
If you laugh just a little today
It will help keep your problems at bay.
Frowns will soon disappear
If you take time to cheer.
Laughter's sun melts life's worries away.
If you give a five-year-old the job of setting the table, she goes about it happily. She will sing a little song, or make up a little story while she works. She doesn't complain because the job is too mundane. But wait until that child becomes ten, and then ask her to set the table. She will have an all-new attitude. "Why do I have to do it?" she will complain. That simple task has now become mundane. What is the difference? ATTITUDE!
Author’s Notes:Many of us will be celebrating Jesus’ resurrection this Sunday, Easter Sunday. And rather than add much commentary, this week’s lesson will primarily be reading through the Biblical accounts of the events surrounding Jesus’ death and resurrection, and encouraging the students to listen as if they were really there, themselves. It’s a story that never gets old, no matter how many times one hears it. And I hope it will bless your class, today, whether it’s their first or fifty-first time hearing it. It is the greatest love story ever written!
The crowd referred to Jesus as their , coming in the name of the Lord.
The tried to get Jesus to hush the crowd.
knew the crowd would soon turn against Him.
The Jewish crowd told Pilate to Jesus.
True or False
1. The prophet Zechariah prophesied that Israel’s King would ride a white horse.
2. Jesus told the crowd to be quiet.
3. Jesus wept as He came close to Jerusalem.
4. Jewish leaders stirred up the people, to get them cry out against Jesus’ release.
5. Jesus cursed all those who turned against Him.
This week, we’re going to look at what sort of Messiah the Jews were expecting, what they should have been expecting, and what He really was – a spiritual Savior. One day He will return to earth as the King they were looking for. But the first time He came, many had trouble accepting what they weren’t expecting.
I want you to imagine with me a little boy, about 4 or 5 years old. And this little boy wants a brother more than anything else in the world. One day, his mommy told him that very soon he would have just what he’d been dreaming of… he was going to have a new brother.
Words of truth and love shall forever be
My soul’s unmerited treasure.
God’s commands are gems
Etched across my heart…
Not ever to depart.
Offered by One
Paid my price.
With a smile
I will walk

Horizon Christian Fellowship - San Diego. - Lamentations 3:26,27 It is good to wait quietly for the salvation of the LORD.It is good for a man to bear the yoke while he is young. Dear brothers and sisters in Jesus,is it fair that we should know sorrow, pain and death? I think my answer would be,"it's not that we are supposed to experience death and pain. It's the wisdom that comes from knowing how good God is, despite our pain and sorrow. Because wisdom and understanding is way more valuable and worthwhile than all the pleasures that are marketed and pushed on us, and believing physical sex and substance abuse and pleasures that we are led to think is normal and real, are good for us. God is real and the sooner we get to know Him, the more peace we will have in the fire and turmoil. Then we can truly enjoy our lives whether in poverty or wealth. Peace or war. Beautiful or not beautiful.. 4/7/2011

4/14/10 More: Is it possible for someone to write a few paragraphs on how great I am? Or will it turn out to be, how great I was? If you ever get a thought in your spirit about something, some place, or someone, and you pray for that something, someplace, or somebody, you have done a great thing,and it's to God be the Glory.

LISA DEVINNEY - “I will send down showers in season; there will be showers of blessing.” Ezekiel 34:26b NIV Are you in the midst of a storm, today? Are dark clouds looming above you while water is rising around you? Or do you find yourself fighting a battle that seems to test every fiber of your strength and faith? Or maybe you have a friend facing a difficult challenge, and you’d like to encourage them through their battle. Inspired by a friend’s courageous battle with cancer, Blessings in the Rain is a collection of Scripture verses and poems meant to encourage those who find themselves fighting battles of their own. Whether physical, mental or spiritual…the battles we face daily can easily cause us doubt, discouragement, despair, or fear. But God has an incredible way of taking what might have been meant to harm us, and instead use it for our good. He turns our storms into “showers of blessing.”
This book views the New Testament within the Holy family, clarifying for the reader the time and place relationships among these events, most of which are often studied in isolation from each other in Bible studies. In this way, a reader may already know the stories of Lazarus, Jesus, Herod, etc. but may lack an integrated vision of how these events worked together in time and place. The book's interweaving of events, plus diligent detail in presenting culture and setting, will place a vivid memory of New and Old Testament events in the reader’s mind.
Your kids will delight in the timeless
tales of courage, faith & endurance with characters like Adam & Eve,
Noah, Moses, Abraham, Jesus of Nazareth, and the Apostles.
Our truly unique DVD's bring biblical stories and characters to
life. The Animated Kids Bible will cement their favorite biblical
stories and characters in their memories for all time, by first
entertaining them, and then helping them to develop deeper
understanding and knowledge. Click
