We had a great Resurrection Sunday Last week. We had some great music and Larry brought a message about Thomas. He showed us that the blessing Jesus gave at the end of the scripture was for us when he said “blessed or those who have not seen but believe.” We are those people! We had dinner afterwards and we had great fellowship. If you were not with us last week I hope you were able to celebrate Easter somewhere. You can always go back and listen to this message on our website.
This week I want to talk to you about the last time Jesus talked with his disciples before ascending into Heaven and he gave them instructions on what they were supposed to do after he is gone. Up until now they had no idea what they would be doing. Many probably believed they would go back to the lives they had before they met Jesus. Our scripture verse this week is in Matthew, 28th chapter, vs 16-20. This is when Jesus gives them what we call the great commission. Jesus told them what they needed to do and soon he would send them the Holy Spirit to empower them to do it. Up until now the disciples were afraid, defeated, lost and had no hope but all that changed when Jesus appeared to them after he rose from the grave. They now knew what Jesus was talking about but they still weren’t sure what they were supposed to do. Now they knew and boy what a change in these men. The question for us today is what in the world are we supposed to do. I am going to discuss this on Sunday and I hope you will join us. Invite someone to come with you and let’s continue the celebration of the resurrection.
Please remember to pray for those mention in our prayer request last week. There are so many people who need our help right now we should be busy do the masters work. That means we are out there trying to help as much as we can, if you grow tired just ask for the Holy Spirit to empower you like he did the first disciples. Have a great week and we will see you on Sunday!!
We love you so much,
Pastor David & Pris
