Face to Face With Jesus

Today we welcomed Dr. Doug Fombelle, Dean of Bethel Seminary of the East. He brought a message from I Corinthians that calls us back to consider the personal confrontation with Jesus Himself in which God communicates to us His truth, love, and instruction. For those of you who at one point came to hear the voice of Jesus as He called you to be his child, that same Shepherd continues to love and teach His sheep according to His ways. Our job is to tune our hearts to listen for and respond to His voice.
Feel free to leave comments and reflections.

Something Better

Hebrews 11 is often called the "Hall of Faith," a place to go and browse the incredible lives of Old Testament believers who lived by faith. Yet at the end of the chapter, the spotlight turns to each of us, "These were all commended for their faith, yet none of them received what had been promised. God had planned something better for us so that only together with us would they be made perfect."
How can that be? These impressive examples aren't given for us to marvel over, but to exceed. After all, post-resurrection believers now know the Name above every Name, have the power of God working in them, and are themselves the holy dwelling places of His Spirit.
Do you feel like your life is "something better" than Abraham, Joshua and Moses? If not, look at how Hebrews 12 describes the life of faith, the race well run, and enjoy the awesome privilege of fixing your life on Jesus Christ.
(Sorry the audio is a bit quiet this week.)

Is the Resurrection Hard to Believe?

Happy Resurrection Day!
...but do we ever have a hard time believing that the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead is actual, literal, and crucial? This message takes an honest look at those questions, and in the end we can rest assured that the resurrection of Christ is rationally and historically quite believable.
