What are you waiting for ?

I have recently read that each of us spends about one hour every day just waiting. 

Scripture teaches us we are also to wait on God. 

"Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord" (Psalm 27:14). To wait on the Lord can mean to trust patiently in the Lord.

In what area(s) of your life do you need to wait on the Lord? Maybe a relationship, a career decision, the results of a medical test....? Whatever your situation I encourage you to continue waiting on the Lord. In doing so you will deepen your discipleship, be a witness to others, and glorify Him. 

The easter season

The Easter season is upon us and this includes Good Friday. I'm not exactly sure why it is called Good Friday but I think it is because of the good gift of salvation made possible by our Lord's willing sacrifice of himself on the cross. Every disciple of Christ needs to spend time on Good Friday thanking Christ for his sacrifice.

Easter Sunday is our celebration of the great news of our Lord's resurrection and it validates everything else Christ did. It proves he is the only Messiah. Henry Morris said,, "The bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead is the crowning proof of Christianity. If the resurrection did not take place, then Christianity is a false religion. If it did take place, then Christ is God and the Christian faith is the absolute truth."

The resurrection did take place. In Luke 24:5-6 we read "...Why do you look for the living among the dead? He is not here; he has risen!..."

Have you received Christ as your Savior? If so I trust you will celebrate his resurrection on Easter Sunday.

The resurrection message

Easter has passed but the resurrection message continues. "He is risen" is the message for every day, not just Easter Sunday. 

The disciples preached the Easter message. In Acts 2:24 Peter proclaimed, "But God raised him from the dead, freeing him from the agony of death, because it was impossible for death to keep its hold on him".

The Church today continues to preach the  Easter message. It is the gospel. It is the only message of eternal life. In reality it is the only message of the Church.

What do we do with this message? First we must believe it. Secondly we must proclaim it. We also must live it.  What are you doing with the Resurrection message? Do you believe it? Are you proclaiming it to others? Are you living it in your own life?

I hope to see you soon at East Pointe Baptist Church.
