Christ didn’t die just so you could make to heaven; He lives so you can make it through earth!
The Word of God spoke into the dry bones. His breath filled them, put tendons (repair), and put skin on…Then you will know I am God…When Jesus comes that will happen.
Worship starts with seeing something great and then reflecting it to the world. Let’s see God so we can reflect God.
Humility is not a character trait to develop, it’s the natural by-product of being with Jesus.
The two great moments in human history are the day that Christ was born and the day He was raised from the dead. These are represented by Christmas and Easter – the two biggest holidays for the church. People who don’t even go to church do go on these days.
Mere nails, though pounded deep, were not enough to keep Jesus on the cross. But love was… and love prevailed.
Jesus has enough, is enough, and will be enough.

Life is chaotic. It’s messy. That’s what Jesus was stepping into.
Simply by our proximity to Jesus, we can bring hope and life to people and places trapped in discouragement and despair.
Accept the fact that you’re never gonna be someone else and embrace the fact that the world needs you as God made you to be.
