190707AM CBC The Call of Matthew Christ’s Call To Matthew: “Follow Me” Matthew 9:9-13 Jesus summed up His entire Gospel message into just two words “follow Me”. We could sum up Biblical Christianity as: FOLLOWING JESUS. These two words also sum up the New Testament Church and the essence of the overcoming, victorious […]

Tonight we are in the midst of our journey of remembrance through the greatest week in the history of the Universe, Christ’s Passion Week:
He Came, He Died, He Rose
Paul explains the events of this week as the Gospel. Using nine words recorded in 1 Cor. 15:1-4, God explains to us what Jesus did.
Open with me to the Garden Tomb, on Resurrection morning in John 20:11-16.
We have come to the third and final stop on our journey through Passion Week.
Palm Sunday: We saw Who He Was;
Good Friday: We saw What He Did; and today,
Easter Sunday: We need to see Why He Came.
Few things fire imaginations like ancient Egypt’s fabled buried treasures, golden tombs and King Tut. That’s why this week the world of ancient history and archaeology was stunned by what is hailed as the greatest discovery of the century. Archaeologists have found two hidden passageways, off the fabled tomb of King Tut.
MISC 13-08: A Fitting and Proper Response
MISC 13-04: He Sees the REAL You
On this Father’s Day, we each have a message from God, written down and sent to us in His Word, the Bible. God’s Word is so vital for life that we should spend time every day listening as God speaks to us from His Word.
To make this a most special and deeply impactful Father’s Day, consider deciding to give your husband or father the best, most enduring and precious gift you could ever give to him. The gift would be to affirm again, or begin to be the woman that God has designed you to be.

Our theme for this year as a church is Hebrews 13:20-21. First listen to it in the (NKJV):
Now may the God of peace who brought up our Lord Jesus from the dead, that great Shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant, 21 make you complete in every good work to do His will, working in you what is well pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen.
Now may the God of peace who brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, the great shepherd of the sheep, by the blood of the eternal covenant, 21 equip you with everything good that you may do his will, working in us that which is pleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen.
This is a challenge to our team going to Italy, but I share it because it is a challenge to all of us. We all are missionaries; we all have a mission from God.
We have been called by God to the ministry of sharing the Good News that God forgives sin, and asking people if they are interested. The Gospel is not that God wants you to have a happy life, feel better, get your marriage straightened out or your life headed the right direction. The Gospel is that God will not overlook any of your sins, and He will not let anyone into Heaven that is not reconciled with Him. We don’t reconcile to God, He reconciles with us.
God left us here to tell people that there’s a way in which all their sins can be forgiven forever.
Please open with me to Philippians 3:14-21.
Each of us who have had a spiritual heart transplant (Ezekiel 36:26-27), and have been born again (John 3), and have become a temple (I Corinthians 6:19-20) that the Living God lives in—are also now citizens of Heaven.
This morning we are to be those who declare God’s forgiveness as we live in this world as strangers and pilgrims, while having our real citizenship in Heaven. As citizens of Heaven we have a duty God has given us to expose evil.
