Part 3 of my mini-series within a series deals with the Future of Love. As a recap:
The Look of Love talked about the mark of the Christ-follower: love.
The Act of Love talked about the crucifixion through the eyes of Isaiah in chapter 53.
This “Event” sermon looks at two events actually:
The Main Event- the Resurrection of Jesus
The Grand Finale- our future home in Heaven
This Sunday we celebrate the Main Event. Apologist Josh McDowell was once asked by a student from Paraguay why he couldn’t refute Christianity. His answer? “For the very simple reason: I am not able to explain away an event in history-the resurrection of Jesus.”
And the Grand Finale? Oh WOW!!!!! There is so much to say about Heaven…too much for this particular post. One thing I do know is to echo Paul: “Absent from the body; present with the Lord.” I look forward to the reunions I will have. But most of all, I look forward to seeing the face of and embracing the One who showed me such G-R-A-C-E.
Jo & I left Wednesday for Ohio to spend a couple of days with our grandson. I will be incommunicado during that time. If you comment, I will approve it but not take the time to respond right away. I do ask for your prayers for this weekend.
