Jesus is in the Tomb!

April 8, 2023
For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. Romans 6:23

Jesus taken down from the cross. Joseph of Arimathaea took His body and laid Him in a tomb that was carved out of a rock. A great stone was rolled over the door.

The disciples had scattered, the women wept, it seemed all was lost. The One who all thought would be King was dead.

The chief priest came to Pilate for fear Jesus body would be stolen. Pilate sent soldiers to seal the tomb and watch.

Fear, disappointment and grief. Jesus has died.

Maybe you feel no hope! There is good news. Jesus did not stay in that tomb. On the third day He rose from the dead.

Jesus did all of that for you and me. Eternal Life! That is why Jesus died and rose again.

Jesus, Death on the Cross

April 7, 2023

Jesus, beaten, bleeding is made to carry His own cross, through the streets where people mocked Him. They took Him to a hill called Golgotha.

Then they drove spikes into His hands and feet. The cross was lifted and dropped. The pain and agony Jesus suffered for hours as He hung on the cross.

He is slowly dying. Finally, He cries out, “It is finished.”

Finished. Why Jesus came from Heaven to Earth. To die on the cross for payment of our sin. His mission accomplished.

Jesus Put On Trial

April 6, 2023

So much has happened since we left Jesus praying in the garden. Judas has led the guards to Jesus, and He’s arrested and then tried by the High Priest, the high council, Pilate, and finally Herod. These “trials” are the very definition of a sham trial, a miscarriage of justice.

Jesus was without sin. They beat Him, put a crown of thorns on His Head. Mocked Him, spit on Him and He did not defend himself.

Then they led Him to Calvary where they nailed Him to a cross.

The amazing thing is that Jesus did all of that willingly. Why? Because of love for you and me. He suffered all that humiliation because it was the only way for us to have our sins forgiven!

Then did they spit in his face, and buffeted him; and others smote him with the palms of their hands, Matthew 26:67

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16

Jesus, Our Savior

April 1, 2023
1 John 4:14 – And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world.

GOD, sent His Son, JESUS to be our Savior. The next week as we look forward to resurrection Sunday, we will focus on Jesus, the One who died on the cross to pay the penalty for all our sin.

1 John 4:14And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world.

Strawberry Festival Blessings!

March 4, 2023

God blessed in a wonderful way at the Florida Strawberry Festival when Alice’s granddaughter came into the booth and trusted Jesus as her Savior. (Alice is SOS Event Coordinator)

Alice realized it was her granddaughter when she saw a picture that was taken of the girl with Val, the volunteer who led the girl to Jesus.

If you have a loved one that does not know Jesus then pray that they will have the opportunity to accept Jesus by hearing the gospel from someone.

Family and close friends sometimes will listen to a stranger when they will not listen to you. God is faithful and He will send someone to your loved one. He loves them even more than you do.

The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. 2 Peter 3:9

Tell Me The Story Of Jesus!

February 25, 2023

There is something special about old hymns. This one written by Fanny Crosby in 1880, tells the whole story of Jesus life. It is scripturally sound. Read the words, listen to the song and worship Jesus in your heart. You will be blessed.

  1. Tell me the story of Jesus,
    Write on my heart every word;
    Tell me the story most precious,
    Sweetest that ever was heard.
    Tell how the angels in chorus,
    Sang as they welcomed His birth,
    “Glory to God in the highest!
    Peace and good tidings to earth.”
    • Refrain:
      Tell me the story of Jesus,
      Write on my heart every word;
      Tell me the story most precious,
      Sweetest that ever was heard.
  2. Fasting alone in the desert,
    Tell of the days that are past,
    How for our sins He was tempted,
    Yet was triumphant at last.
    Tell of the years of His labor,
    Tell of the sorrow He bore;
    He was despised and afflicted,
    Homeless, rejected and poor.
  3. Tell of the cross where they nailed Him,
    Writhing in anguish and pain;
    Tell of the grave where they laid Him,
    Tell how He liveth again.
    Love in that story so tender,
    Clearer than ever I see;
    Stay, let me weep while you whisper,
    “Love paid the ransom for me.”
  4. Tell how He’s gone back to heaven,
    Up to the right hand of God:
    How He is there interceding
    While on this earth we must trod.
    Tell of the sweet Holy Spirit
    He has poured out from above;
    Tell how He’s coming in glory
    For all the saints of His love.
