The Resurrection Changed Everything.
Yes it’s true, the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ changed everything. Gazing inside this historical fact about Jesus’ Resurrection places everything in perspective.
Just like our Salvation, we accept the resurrection of Jesus Christ by faith. The apostle Paul states in first Corinthians 15, that we would be men and women most miserable if Jesus hadn’t risen from the grave.
God‘s word is adamant that the earth quaked, darkness cam...

I have always been a vivid dreamer and usually remember my dreams. Last week, I had a very unique dream which included many of our church family. Most of my dreams happen in the old sanctuary which is unusal since we've been in the "new" sanctuary almost twelve years. In my dream, we were in the old sanctuary and I turned around and there sat Sarah Pierce. Sarah passed to her glorious reward in August of 2020 from complications due to having been given blood while recoveri...

Definition of resurrection
1 a capitalized : the rising of Christ from the dead
b often capitalized : the rising again to life of all the human dead before the final judgment
c the state of one risen from the dead
Simply it means when you die, and you will die, you will live again (unless you are changed in the twinkling of the eye in the Rapture). And then the judgement of our lives, Hope in our Resurrection.
In Hebrews the writer states:

Have you ever experienced a great expectation? A great expectation is another way to say hope. Hope is the feeling of expectation and desire for a certain thing to happen. The resurrecting hope found in Jesus Christ is the only hope you will ever need.
1 Peter 1:3-4 NLT: All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. It is by his great mercy that we have been born again because God raised Jesus Christ from the dead. Now we live with great expectation, and we have a...

Proverbs 3:5-7 GNT Trust in the Lord with all your heart. Never rely on what you think you know. Remember the Lord in everything you do, and He will show you the right way.
Sometimes as life goes on, we get into a vicious cycle, just like the Israelites did. When the Israelites entered the promised land after 40 years of wondering through the desert; could you imagine, their hope, as they spent time wondering around? Would it have been any different if they would have...

“They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength. They shall mount up with wings as the eagle. They shall run and not be weary. They shall walk and not faint.” Isaiah 40:31
(Qavah- pronounced Kav-Haw to wait, waiting, waited. Denotes looking for, hoping for, to linger, to look eagerly for, to actively expect)
Thirty-three years before the waiting had come to an end.
Mary and Joseph had waited for the promised child to come. And so, the Word of God came.
Luke 2:6-7 “An...

We left the dock early that morning just at daybreak to absolutely bluebird sky and glass smooth waters. Dad, Kim, Chase and I set our gps to a nearshore wreck a few miles from the mouth of St. Andrews Pass in Panama City. Throttle down we had great anticipation for what the day would surely hold. Everything was perfect…the conditions, the tackle, the location….we knew it was going to be something speci...

'His branches shall spread; His beauty shall be like an olive tree, And his fragrance like Lebanon. Those who dwell under his shadow shall return; They shall be revived like grain, And grow like a vine. Their scent shall be like the wine of Lebanon. I will be like the dew to Israel; He shall grow like the lily, And lengthen his roots like Lebanon.'
Several years ago, my parents brought me a piece of my grandmother’s hydrangea plant or snowball bush as we like t...
