Wake Up!

Your car may not have an autopilot mode, but I bet you have had the experience of intending to go to a particular destination, getting lost in a conversation, and taking wrong turns because of it! Similarly, sometimes we move through life as if we have an autopilot for our lives. We can pick up sin in our lives without even realizing it. This is what happens when we are in autopilot mode. It is as if we are sleeping. We move passively through life, uncritically accepting patterns of speech, behaviors, and concepts from our culture. In Romans 13:11 Saint Paul tells us that it is time to wake up!

Easter: Dashed Hope Becomes Victory

We talk a lot, as Christians, about the cross and how Jesus died for our sins. This is entirely true, and we should talk about it! But Good Friday without Easter is meaningless. The Resurrection is God’s seal of approval of Jesus’ work on the cross. It is proof that Jesus’ death was not in vain. It was, in fact, a victory, not a failure! The resurrection is the means by which Jesus defeats death forever. There is no resurrection without the crucifixion, and the crucifixion is meaningless without the resurrection. The two go hand in hand. This is why Easter is the most important celebration of the Christian year! It is our defining moment. The event that changes everything and makes us who we are.

I am a Missionary

In his last words to his disciples before ascending into Heaven, Jesus commissioned his disciples to spread the Gospel to the ends of the earth. This remains the mission of the Church today, and we are all called to participate in it. We do this in two primary ways. The first is raising our children and grandchildren in the faith, passing the Gospel from one generation to the next. The other way is through reaching out to people who don’t know Jesus and inviting them to come into his kingdom.

For All the Saints

In the scriptures, the word which we translate as “saint” means “holy one.” We tend to think about the saints as the heroes of our faith, people who have lived exceptional lives of holiness and service to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and they are! But the Bible also uses the word “saint” to describe every believer, all who have put their faith in Jesus Christ. We may not be perfectly holy yet, but we are becoming holy day by day as we are sanctified by the Holy Spirit.

You Belong Here

Some of our basic human needs (once you get past things like food, clothing, and shelter) are things like community, purpose, and hope. All of us long for these things, and the Church, along with our Christian faith, can meet these needs like nothing else. Listen to find out how!
