TheEvent

Written by cycleguy on April 13th, 2017

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.

    Amen, Bill. When a person actually considers the facts of Christ’s resurrection it’s hard to come away with any other conclusion. It is the most documented eye witness accounting in far history.

    Enjoy your time with your wife and grandson. Better take an energy bar…

  4. Bill,

    I’m glad you and J have this time with your grandson. Those times are so precious and treasured. With my dad’s terminal cancer diagnosis, we are savoring each day and moment with him, packing in as much memories and significant time together as we can.

    May God speak through you during your sermon Sunday too. Smiling with Josh McDowel’s words and agreeing with you about the beauty of heavenly reunions. Yes. 🙂

    May Jesus’s beauty shine out of us gorgeously.

    Happy Easter to you and Jo and family,
