Where are you at?

Where's your God today? Is he relegated to some small space, tucked away until you arrive at church? Or your small group? Was he left at home? Or was he your first thought this morning? Is he perhaps front and center? Does he feel near to you or far away?

Reaching Out With Care

We are called to trust the promise of Jesus, that when we do empty ourselves of self-centered ways, and the fear of being overwhelmed with the needs of others, we will be filled with the care and love which comes from God. This can produce a blessing for both those we care for and for ourselves as well.

Cleansed and Freed

Through the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross we no longer need protection from God's wrath; in fact we can approach God without any fear - having the blessed assurance that God's wrath has been appeased through the death of Christ.

Resurrection Living

The old habits of sin and death that bound us need to be removed as Jesus calls us from the grave. Our eyes need to be opened. Our hands need to be set free. Our feet need to be unbound. Like Lazarus we need to take off the old and put on the new, new clothes befitting new life.

Post-Easter Living

Our faith in the death and resurrection of Jesus means that we are living eternal life now. For followers of Jesus eternal life doesn't begin when we die; it begins the moment we are born again. How might you invest your time differently if you really believed that your life has eternal value and implications?
