The Miracles of Lent show us we need godly intervention. One things teaches this need more than anything else: death. We instinctually recoil from death. Even when we wouldn’t, God does whatever it takes to save us from death, even sacrificing His only Son, Jesus. Our Good Friday message.
Jesus’ final act before he was arrested and crucified was to give us Himself for our forgiveness. He gives us His body and blood in the bread and the wine, shared with his disciples that night, and with every faithful person who follows Him. Our Maundy Thursday message.
A wanted man, Jesus rides into the city and the people proclaim Him a king! Hosanna! Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord, even the King of Israel! We’ve studied the Miracles of Lent and how they show us our need for Godly intervention. Jesus rides into the city, ready to deliver.
When Jesus Christ was crucified, the rocks were split in two. Cracking, popping, screaming, Creation itself was groaning to be restored. Jesus’ death and resurrection is Good News for us and for all of Creation. We continue our Miracles of Lent mid-week sermon series.
Death comes for everyone and everything. We need a resurrection. The miraculous raising of the dead started the day Jesus was crucified. The miraculous raising of the dead continues with every life saved by faith. We study this in our Miracles of Lent mid-week sermon series.
Have you ever experienced an earthquake? It gets your attention. The world shakes around you and creates fear and anxiety. There was a great earthquake the day Jesus was crucified. Jesus dies and the world literally quakes. We study this in our Miracles of Lent mid-week sermon series.
There was darkness from noon to 3pm on the day Jesus was crucified. It wasn’t an eclipse. It wasn’t natural. It was miraculous. Jesus takes our darkness onto himself to give us His light and life. We study this in our Miracles of Lent mid-week sermon series.
What separates you from God? In the Israelite temple, there was a curtain which was 60-feet tall and six inches thick. It stood as physical representation of the spiritual separation of our Sin. When Jesus was crucified, the temple curtain which separated God from His people was torn in two! In Jesus’ crucifixion and resurrection, there is nothing which keeps you from God.
