I wish you a happy Easter weekend!

This weekend consists of the most important celebrations in all of Christianity. Good Friday represents the death of Jesus and the limitless love of God in sending a savior to redeem us. Easter Sunday represents God’s power over death and gives us the eternal hope that all those who have confessed Christ will one day raise again and live an eternity with Jesus. We will inherent the promised the Kingdom of God!

I wish you a great weekend full of discovering the goodness of God. I hope that as you hear the stories of Jesus, your heart will both mourn and celebrate. We mourn the sinfulness of our own humanity and celebrate the redemption offered to us through the resurrection!

Be blessed!

My neighbor is going to hell!

Some people enjoy great relationships with their neighbors. They visit each other and BBQ together. Their kids get together. It’s like one of those episodes of “Leave it to Beaver”… the perfect neighborhood.

And others have those not-so-nice neighbors that stare at you. Or drive by your house slowly just to let you know that they have their eye on you. All of which leaves you with that weird feeling every time you throw out the garbage or get your family in the car.

And let’s not mention the fighters, the music blasters, or the partiers… (Some say its God’s way of developing patience in us!)

However, there is one important point to consider… Without Jesus, they are going to hell. They are destined to burn in torment for eternity without the salvation that Christ offers.

And this neighbor analogy not only serves to describe our neighborhoods, but our communities and nation as well. The point is that we need to be aware of the current state of spirituality around us.
