Death Over Dinner With Jesus
Sun, Apr 21, 2019
But we see him who for a little while was made lower than the angels, namely Jesus, crowned with glory and honor because of the suffering of death, so that by the grace of God he might taste death for everyone. - Hebrews 2:9 (ESV) We are all inexperienced when it comes to death, but it will be a reality for everyone. Yet we avoid thinking or talking about it, but it is something everyone must face. On Easter we celebrate One who has tasted death and won. This unique event changes our perspective and our eternity when we consider our own mortality. This Sunday we come together, as we do every Sunday, to look toward this One, namely Jesus. We will see how the resurrection opens a way through grace for us. Take a few minutes to read through Hebrews 2 to prepare your heart and mind.

Rest: More Than a Feeling

Let us therefore strive to enter that rest, so that no one may fall by the same sort of disobedience. (Hebrews 4:11 ESV) Exhausted. Tired. Dragging. Need Coffee. In the midst of all of our jokes about the pace of life and the weariness of our minds and bodies, there is a truth that we often ignore. We need rest. Unfortunately, when we think of rest, we are stretched and tired even considering it. We might feel we can’t afford it. Or we might run the to-do-list both at home and at work that would never allow us to step away. Many times, what adds to our busyness is our spiritual lives. We add things like prayer or bible study to the list and our sense of frustration grows. In Hebrews 4:1, we get an almost paradoxical command about rest. You must struggle, work, and strive to rest. Wait, what? Wouldn’t that make rest work? This Sunday, my friend Ryan Haskins will be unpacking this idea of Rest. I will be gone, participating in a local race (Not a lot of rest there!). I encourage you to read through Hebrews 4 to get the context of this important command.
