Easter Expression #9

Why I am Glad I Found Out about the Resurrection … I am glad I found out about the resurrection because it gives me a solid hope that I will one day live in Heaven! It’s easy to throw the word ‘hope” around. “I hope that cop didn’t see me speeding” and “I hope I win the lottery someday”. One of my daily “hopes” is that my $4.00 mocha is going to be perfectly delicious. These are actually just wishes.…

Evangelism in the Psalms

Hello CCA, Amazing to me is Evangelism in the Psalms. King David was trying to wrest his land from warring nations. Israel was hated by the Nations around them, yet God was so good and powerful, that david says, “Give praise to the Lord, proclaim his name, make known among the nations what he has done.” May God effect such realization and emotion among us that we cannot but tell others of his great work in Easter. May his house…

Easter Expression #8

Why I am Glad I Found Out about the Resurrection … As a person that battles with depression, I spend a lot of time focused on mistakes. Mistakes I have made in the past, afraid of mistakes I might make in the future and even mistakes that I am currently making. In an instant, I can convince myself that I am alone and that no one can possibly understand the pain and torment that I endure on a daily basis,…

Countdown to Resurrection Day Continues

Hello CCA 😊 Count down continues for Resurrection Day! Today I asked the lady at the front desk of a Rehab facility that Dad was in, “What do you have planned for Easter?” I was saddened by her response, “Nothing really; I am going to brunch at Settler’s Bay with some friends of the my family, but that’s all.” Here are some thoughts I wrote down in my ever-present memory back, the notepad on my iphone: If you believe the…

Easter Expression #7

Why I am Glad I Found Out about the Resurrection … Why am I glad I found out about the resurrection? At first this felt like some sort of trick question. If you asked me to pinpoint when I found out about the resurrection there’s no way I could tell you. It’s just something I’ve known about for as long as I can remember, like Adam & Eve, Noah’s ark, or Father Abraham and his many sons (yes, I’m singing…

We Edge Ever Closer to Easter

Hello CCA, We edge ever closer to Resurrection Day, Easter. It is this Sunday. Thinking about the Resurrection before its celebration arrives helps our anticipation level to rise. This morning as I read through Psalm 146 I noticed this truth, the Resurrection directs our living practices. It says, blessed is a person whose God is The Lord. Then it explains our God; he made the heavens and the earth. He is faithful to us always. Then it describes his attention…

Easter Expression #6

Why I am Glad I Found Out about the Resurrection … There’s just so many thoughts and emotions in my mind as I write and ponder why I am glad I found out about the resurrection. What is the resurrection? What does it mean and what does it mean to me? It definitely brings joy, thinking about how Jesus conquered death and the grave. The grave and death could not hold him and as he said, rose the third day…

Easter Expression #5

Why I am Glad I Found Out about the Resurrection … I found out about the Resurrection early in life and have never doubted it. As I have grown older I have just become more convinced that it is true. In preparation for Easter, I am reading The Case for Easter by Lee Strobel. Mr. Strobel called the Resurrection the “lynchpin of the Christian faith.” And it is. Paul says that “if Christ has not been raised our preaching is…

Easter Expression #4

Why I am Glad I Found Out about the Resurrection … The resurrection is the foundation of Christianity. Because I am saved and given another chance and I have the love of the Lord on my side, someone I can talk to and pray to, that will help, and take things into his own hands and he’ll know what is best when we don’t. Cause, now I know we will be protected as long as we serve, repent, obey the…
