A Thawed and Flawed Resurrection

Our earthly bodies, which die and decay, will be different when they are resurrected, for they will never die. Our bodies now disappoint us, but when they are raised, they will be full of glory (1 Corinthians 15:42, NLT) Because Jesus Christ conquered death and rose from the grave, He will someday bring back to life all those who have put their faith in Him, giving them perfect bodies, just like His own resurrected, glorified body.

King Frederick and the Guilty Criminal

There is someone to plead for you before the Father. He is Jesus Christ.... (1 John 2:1, NLT) Christians need not falsely proclaim their innocence, but be honest with God and receive His wonderful forgiveness and cleansing according to 1 John 1:9-10: "If we confess our sins to him, he is faithful and just to forgive us and to cleanse us from every wrong. If we claim we have not sinned, we are calling God a liar and showing that his word has no place in our hearts" (NLT).

The End of the World?

What I say to you I say to everyone: Watch for his return! (Mark 13:37, NLT) Jesus said, "When the Son of Man returns, it will be like it was in Noah's day. In those days before the Flood, the people were enjoying banquets and parties and weddings right up to the time Noah entered his boat. People didn't realize what was going to happen until the Flood came and swept them all away. That is the way it will be when the Son of Man comes" (Matthew 24: 37-39, NLT).

Admitting Your Mistakes

During the course of each day, we sin, we make mistakes, we exercise poor judgment, we make horrible choices. Nobody, NOBODY is immune from this. The key is how do we handle the mistakes we make during the course of a day?

Just Give Me Jesus

Christ is the visible image of the invisible God (Colossians 1:15, NLT). Christ existed before God made anything at all and is supreme over all creation. Christ is the one through whom God created everything in heaven and earth. He made the things we can see and the things we can't see -- kings, kingdoms, rulers, and authorities. Everything has been created through him and for him. He existed before everything else began, and he holds all creation together.
