It Is Not Supposed to Be This Way

Matthew 27:57-66; Psalm 3:1-8 eath is an enemy, the ultimate antagonist that seems as if it will eventually claim victory over each of us. However, the truth remains, it isn’t supposed to be this way. Yes, death is a part of life marked by the fall, however, we should never believe the lie that this is how it was meant to be. I am certain that you have felt the sting of death in your life. Some of us are acutely aware of the pain of loss.

ARTICLES I LIKE FROM AROUND THE WEB: (Click title to go to full article) Andy Stanley’s Statements about the Bible are not Cutting Edge—They’re Old Liberalism – “I was at the recent ERLC Onward Conference listening when Russell Moore was having a conversation about ministry and preaching with Andy Stanley. I was startled when Stanley said he preaches some sermons without ever quoting the Bible. He views these sermons as extended introductions. Stanley also said we do not believe Christianity because of the Bible, but because of the resurrection and eyewitness testimonies.

The mistreatment of the poor was regular fodder for the Old Testament prophets, and the right care of the poor a key theme in the establishment of the law for God’s people, Israel. Jesus spoke to the issue … Read More

ARTICLES I LIKE FROM AROUND THE WEB: (Click title to go to full article) The Woman Who Needed to Simply Believe – “Do you struggle with lack of assurance of salvation? Perhaps you’ve wrestled with this issue for some time, and have never come to a place where you were satisfied. So many times we complicate the matter and forget that Jesus said, Matthew 18:3 ‘Truly I say to you, unless you are converted and become like children, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven.’” Profiting from the Prophets – “Every Christian knows the importance of reading their Bible, but many are overwhelmed with the task of devouring such a monstrous book! Often times, when Christians lose steam in their … Read More
