Wednesday Connection 4.15.2020

THIS EVENING, I AM HOSTING OUR BIBLE STUDY SERIES, “RISEN.”  In the New Testament there are over 50 references to the resurrection of Jesus Christ.  50 contexts around those references which beg our inquiry.  50 reasons why the resurrection of Jesus Christ changes everything for YOU!

The lesson plan for tonight is attached below.  Call in at 7:00 pm please!

The Resurrection of Jesus gives us new birth into a living hope.  “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you, who by God’s power are being guarded through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time” 1 Peter 1:3-5.

·       The need for new birth is so desperate in us that it took the resurrection of Jesus Christ to make it possible!

·       The Holy Spirit takes our dead hearts and unites us to Christ by faith so that his life becomes our life!

·       With this new life there is now within us ‘living hope’ because Jesus himself is ALIVE!

·       Death is not now an end, but a beginning!  Even our grief is shaped by His Gospel.

While most everything else remains closed down, The Christian Life Chapel Search Committee continues to work primarily through ZOOM meetings.  They are reviewing ‘more than a few’ RESUMES’ already received.  There remains a lot of work ahead.  Please remember to pray over this whole search process.

What can I do during this time of transition at Christian Life Chapel?

  • Pray for the next pastor of CLC – God knows who he is
  • Give – remain faithful to financially support CLC as you are able and God leads. 

2) Be positive

  • Ask God to help you see the good things He is doing in and through CLC
  • Encourage the leaders, and others here at CLC
  • Choose to understand leadership’s desire to move CLC forward and follow God’s leading for a new chapter in the life of our church 

3) Grow
