Happy Easter Sunday! Christ is risen; He is risen indeed! This is cause for great rejoicing among the saints. The grave is empty. Death has been defeated. Jesus Christ has won
For over two millennia, Christians around the world and from all walks of life have taken time to remember and reflect on Jesus’ sacrifice on this day—Good Friday. While Resurrection Sunday celebrates the ultimate victory and new life with the empty tomb and vacant cross, Good Friday comes first. This day can only be called good because through it our redemption was bought; however, for those present on that day it was far from good.
Welcome to a new year! Christmas has passed and 2020 is behind us. Now, as we step forward into the future and possibilities of 2021, let us ground ourselves in God’s Word. As life slows back down after the excitement of the holidays, may we not forget to re-immerse ourselves in the truth of God’s Word. Therefore, as we start this new month and new year, I will be starting a new Bible study.
Our world has changed dramatically over the ages, but one thing remains the same: after every sunset comes a glorious new sunrise. After a period of darkness, light shines anew. This is a constant truth both in the physical world and the spiritual one. Out of the stillness of that first Easter morning came the cry of victory as the ground shook and the stone was moved to reveal an empty tomb.
Since COVID-19 has disrupted our normal schedule and routine, my family and I have been joining the online gatherings of two different churches. One of them is Southeast Christian with Pastor Kyle Idleman. His name might sound familiar to you because he wrote the bestseller, Not A Fan. Now he’s the senior pastor of one of the largest churches in America.
Kyle Idleman has been preaching a series called “Reverse the Curse,” which delves into what happened during Adam and Eve’s sin in Genesis 3, the subsequent fall out and consequences that we’re still dealing with today, and the glorious revelation that Jesus is the great curse reverser. Jesus reverses the curse of sin and gives us new life in Him. He takes what was broken and makes it whole. He brings beauty from ashes and breathes new life to what was once dead.

Guest Post ~ When Stories Collide
Stories are strange things. Because it isn't the big, important people who are usually the main characters; it's not the sunny, lovely days that move the story along. It's the little people who become the heroes. It's the disasters that cause the quest. Read more
