Worship — Life is not Empty...because it is Filled with Peace

The disciples were gathered together in fear and apprehension, yet Jesus brings a word of peace and assurance. His presence among them gives a full sense of complete well-being. Jesus is present among us today as well, assuring us that all is well and that we are truly at peace with God and with one another.

Easter Worship — Life is not Empty…becasue Jesus' Grave Is

Today is Easter Sunday, the day on which we celebrate the resurrection of our Lord from the dead. On this day Christians throughout the world join their voices in praise and proclamation of the most central part of their faith – that Jesus suffered on the cross, died, was buried, and rose on the third day. Thanks be to God!

Easter Song Service

Easter Song Service

First thing on Easter morning; it is about death—but the death that gives us life. When we left this room it was empty. It was all we could do to look at the cross—a cross that was made by us and our sin—and the Savior who willingly went there for us. But the cross was not the end of the story. It is all about the life that flowed from this cross, down into hell, through the empty tomb, spilling out into a world unprepared for its good news. Life has triumphed! Death has not overcome it! Because he lives, we shall live also!

Worship — Difficult Lessons of Lent: Understanding God's "Weak" Battle Plan

Those who accompanied Jesus into Jerusalem on that first Palm Sunday were people who wanted a king in the style of their hopes and dreams. Instead they got a King who was determined to go to the cross and conquer our foes of sin, death, and the devil. Because he was obedient to death, the Father highly exalted him, at whose name "every knee should bow" (Philippians 2:10). Although the praises of Palm Sunday seem to be in contrast to the sorrow of Jesus' Passion, it is by his suffering that he became the King worthy of eternal praise.

Worship — Difficult Lessons of Lent: Salvation Is Not Our Doing

The cross is not some incidental part of the story of God's love for us. The cross is the place where that love is revealed most of all. The love of God cannot be told without the cross and where the cross is raised up; God will draw all people to himself. As Jesus was lifted up on the tree of the cross, so are we lifted up by that tree, raised up from our death and sin through Christ's forgiveness. This is our glory and comfort and this is the message that God has given to us to proclaim to the world.

Webcast — Heart to Heart: Parent Conversations

Forward in Christ's new parenting column, Heart to Heart: Parent Conversations, is hosting its first live webcast on Tuesday, March 10, at 6 pm.

The conversation of the March webcast will focus on the topic of “How do we talk about Jesus with our children?” Sometimes we as parents struggle to talk about Jesus in natural ways with our children. It’s easy to read them a Bible story about Jesus, but it’s harder to apply that story as a situation unfolds. See how authors Wendy Heyn, Dan Nommensen, and Ann Jahns deal with this topic with their children and share ways that you talk about Jesus with your children.
