1 Corinthians 15:33 says: “Do not be deceived: ‘Bad company corrupts good morals’” (NASB). This is true. It has been said: “Show me the people your kids run with and I’ll tell you the character of your kids.” But that’s also true of us.
As Christians the most important person we should keep company with is Jesus Christ. But we need His company in ways that go deeper than reading the Bible or praying or coming together to fellowship with each other though all of these things are needful. The Apostles experienced these things when Jesus walked the earth for three years, but it wasn’t enough to keep them from falling away when He was arrested and crucified. They needed to keep company with Jesus in a different way. And they did. It was then that they were able to stand before the enemies of the Kingdom of God.
We need to keep company with Jesus in the same way. So, come along and listen to “The Company We Keep” and find out how we do that.
When some people are told that Jesus had to die in order for us to be forgiven of our sins the response is often: “Why couldn’t God just forgive us if He’s a loving God?”. That’s a good question and it deserves a solid answer and there’s no better time to answer that question then when we celebrate the death, burial, and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. So, if you really want to know the answer join us as we listen to the sermon: “Why Jesus Had To Die”.
With the approach of Easter and the resurrection of Jesus, I want to share this sermon that tells the story of a resurrection just a few days before His own.
In John 11 we are told the story of a family Jesus loved, two sisters, Martha and Mary, and their brother, Lazarus. Lazarus was sick so his sisters sent messengers to Jesus to come heal Him. Hearing this news Jesus intentionally remained where He was for two days before beginning to walk to where Martha and Mary and Lazarus lived. By the time He arrived He was told Lazarus had died four days earlier. Jesus was too late. Or was He?
Listen to the sermon, “Lazarus, Come Forth” for the answer to that question as well as why He waited before going to see Martha, Mary, and Lazarus.
There is much truth packed into this story. Join me as we unpack it.
