A Story of Hope Mar 14, 2021 - The days leading to the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus reveal the sovereignty of God at work. The plan of God coming to fruition in the person of Jesus is remarkable. Each aspect of the account is preparing Jesus for what is to come and in that, preparing you and I to remember the plan of God fulfilled in Him. The passion week reveals Jesus’ divinity, His power over time and circumstances, and most of all, His love for you and me. In This Series A Sun Valley Easter Apr 04, 2021 | Chad Moore Jesus wants you to receive him, he’s just waiting on your invitation. He loves you, but he will not force himself on you, you must invite him into your life. There is a famous painting in St Paul’s Cathedral in London entitled “The Light of the World” by the artist William Holman Hunt. The painting is of Jesus standing in the doorway of a long unopened door. There is no handle as the door only opens on the inside. Jesus lives. Jesus loves you. Will you invite him in? Jesus is the Lamb of God Mar 28, 2021 | Robert Watson As the people drop their palm branches and shout “hosanna” they are literally asking Jesus to “save us” and “save us now”. The people are thinking politically, while Jesus is thinking personally and eternally. Deliverance will come, but in a different way than the people are thinking and expecting. The church partners with Jesus in his salvation efforts. Like a task force doing whatever it can to save someone in danger, the church rallies to fulfill the cry of “Hosanna”. Easter is a great time to invite people to be rescued. What's the most important thing in your life? Mar 21, 2021 | Chad Moore Whatever we put our hope in we worship. This passage fulfills prophecy and is symbolic for what lies ahead for Jesus, the cross. It also reveals what true worship is like. Worship is focused hope. At its max it is a release of hope that is overwhelming and causes us to surrender all things. For example, some surrender everything to their job, hope and worship are the foundation of that drive. The problem is your job doesn’t love you, it’ll leave you in an instant. People worship and put their hope into all kinds of things, but Jesus loves you and will love you now and forevermore. Resurrection in the Here and Now Mar 14, 2021 | Chad Moore We know death, but Jesus knows life. This is true physically and also emotionally and spiritually. Sin brings death and we all sinners. As a result, we are all experiencing death and decay in various forms. But the righteousness and power of Jesus working in and through lives brings life to dead things. Marriages, friendships, hopes, dreams and ultimately our mortal bodies will be resurrected in Him.
