  • Free PowerPoint Sermon Series: Strong to the Finish Parts 1, 2 & 3 (Including, Signs of a Dying Church)

    During this time of the Winter Olympics, we look at God’s comparison of athletics to the Christian walk. Using Christ’s messages to the seven churches (book of Revelation) and Paul’s metaphor of running a race, this three-part series explains why a dying church is not one that is losing members, but rather, one that is losing zeal and focus on our God-given mission. Lesson three features a very inspiring song (written by a young girl) called “Voice of the Martyrs.” […]

Geoffrey Groundhog Predicts the Weather
By Bruce Koscielniak / Houghton Mifflin Harcourt

Geoffrey Groundhog has become a local celebrity for successfully predicting how long winter will last. On February 2nd when he emerges to look for his shadow, everyone is waiting to hear what he has to say. But Geoffrey’s fame has grown out of control—and so has the commotion surrounding his burrow! With television lights and cameras crowding him, he can’t even see the ground, much less his shadow. How will he make his spring prediction? How will anyone know if they should wax their surfboards or their snow skis?

Groundhog Day Explained

February 2nd is the exact halfway point between the Winter Solstice and the Spring Equinox

Old Children’s Poem

I see a little groundhog, furry and brown,

He’s popping up to look around.

If he sees his shadow, down he’ll go.

Six more weeks of winter – oh, no!

In other parts of the world this day is called…

Candlemas or

Feast of the Presentation

It celebrates the day (40 days after His birth) that Jesus was presented at the Temple

Old children’s poem at Candlemas:

“If Candlemas Day be fair and bright, winter will have another flight: If on Candlemas day it be shower and rain, winter is gone and will not come again.”

Every year the crowds gather in anticipation of one thing:

Will the groundhog come out and stay out of his hole? Will our winter be over?

Or will he see his shadow and run back into his hole to hibernate for six more weeks?

Are we going to have 6 more weeks of winter?

An Old Joke:

One Easter morning, the teacher asked the children about the meaning of Easter.

“Children, today is Easter Sunday. What do we celebrate on Easter?”

One girl spoke up quickly: “We remember our mothers and how much we love them.”

“No, that’s not quite right,” the teacher replied. “You’re thinking of Mother’s Day.”

Then, an eager boy took a shot: “Easter is a time when we say ‘thank you’ to God for all the good things in our lives.”

“We can always say ‘thank you’ to God,” the teacher said, “but, you’re thinking of Thanksgiving, not Easter.

Children, what is the meaning of Easter?”

After a few seconds of awkward silence, another girl in a fancy Easter dress gave it a try.

“Easter,” she said quietly, “is the day when we remember that Jesus died on the cross for our sins. Then he was buried in the tomb and on Easter morning, God rolled the stone away and Jesus came out of the tomb.”

“Excellent,” cried the teacher.

“And then,” the girl continued, “Jesus looked and saw his shadow, so he went back into the tomb and there were six more weeks of winter!”    (oops!)

The bible foretold a springtime that was coming to our dark and sinful world.

“Rise up and shine, for your light has come. The shining-greatness of the Lord has risen upon you.  For see, darkness will cover the earth. Much darkness will cover the people. But the Lord will rise upon you, and His shining-greatness will be seen upon you.”

Isa. 60:1, 2

“The people walking in darkness have seen

a great light. On those living in a pitch-dark land, light has dawned.”

Isa. 9:2

“Jesus was changed in front of them. His face was bright like the sun. His clothes were white, like light.” Matthew 17:2

“On the way there, at noon, I saw a light from heaven, brighter than the sun. It shined all around me and those traveling with me.”

Acts 26:13-15

“…His face shone like the sun when it is shining very brightly.”

Rev. 1:16

“…GOD IS LIGHT and no shadow of darkness can exist in him”

1 John 1:5

The angels who attended the Resurrection were shining brightly, and likely

(the bible doesn’t say), so was Jesus.

He who is the Light,

can cast no shadow.

However, we do know this:
Jesus didn’t go back into His tomb.

If Jesus went back into the tomb:

We would have no hope, we would be stuck in darkness forever.

If He had gone back, our Spiritual Winter would never end.

But, if Jesus did stay out, winter would be over and new life would emerge!

On Resurrection Day, watchers might have asked, “Will Jesus come out and stay out to bring the light of spring to a sin dark world?”

“For see, the winter is past. The rain is over and gone.  The flowers are coming through the ground. The time for singing has come.”

Song 2:11-12

“It was God Who said, “The light will shine in darkness.”  He is the One Who made His light shine in our hearts…”

2 Cor. 4:6

The groundhog may go back, but Jesus brings new life—the winter of our soul can be over.

“O God, bring us back to You. Make Your face shine upon us, that we may be saved.” Psalm 80:3

042226: Where I Am: Heaven, Eternity, and Our Life Beyond the Now

 

Where I Am: Heaven, Eternity, and Our Life Beyond the Now
By Billy Graham / Thomas Nelson

 

Shortly after his 95th birthday in 2013, Mr. Graham, knowing that his time on earth draws to a close, declared,”When I die, tell others that I’ve gone to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ–that’s where I am.”

In this latest reflection, Mr. Graham shares the same message of hope he’s proclaimed for decades, coupled with the sober reflection of a mature faith. In each of these short 36 chapters, he explains what the Bible says about eternity, and the reality that each of us chooses where we’ll spend life after death. Whether you’re drawing closer to that moment of eternal significance, or simply considering the Bible’s claims, Graham’s words will give you faith to believe in Jesus’ promise that, “Where I am, there you may be also.”
