The Resurrection

Sunday we had many people show up to our service for the first time. Many of them had come out to Blast and decided to check things out. We were in 1 Corinthians chapter 15 examining the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the hope of life beyond the grave. Paul describes the Integrity, the Implications and the hits us with the Issue. The main issue is not that the resurrection is hard to intellectualize. The issue is that the resurrection forces man to deal with God, who calls all men to surrender. Surrender is difficult for us because we like to be in control. Even if we don't trust ourselves, we often would rather trust ourselves more than trust God. When men realize that God is good and cares His people, surrender becomes easier but still not easy.

On Sunday there was a huge response and we say many first time commitments to the Lord.

Thank you Lord
