What’s so special about Easter?

Posted onMarch 28, 2018 | by: Pastor Bill Laky | 0 comments

Jesus’ life and death meant a whole lot more. After all, he wasn’t just a prophet or even just a man. Jesus is the GodMan - 100% God, 100% Man, 100% melt your brain if you think about it too hard. God didn’t want to just cancel the debt of sin, he wanted to do something even more miraculous - he wanted to crush death and conquer it once and for all. When Jesus rose from the dead, that Easter morning all those years ago, he wasn’t just coming back to life, he was coming back to life in the form of something new - a first fruit of a new people cut from a different cloth, a different essence....Keep Reading

“Daddy, worshipping Jesus makes my heart happy,” she whispered into my ear. “Do you know why that is?” I asked. Looking at her perfect little face, eyes wide and curious, curls cascading alongside her cheeks, I continued, “It makes your heart happy because God designed you and made you to worship him. Do you know how a hammer is made for putting nails into wood? God made you to worship him. That’s why it makes your heart happy - because it is what you were designed to do. And guess what? It makes God’s heart happy too.”...Keep Reading

In Matthew 6, Jesus' friends made a simple request, “Lord, teach us to pray!” They had been around Jesus long enough to know that he was a praying man. The scriptures frequently tell us that Jesus would get up early in the morning and retreat to places of solitude to pray. Jesus was always praying for people and with people.

So, what did Jesus tell them?...Keep Reading

When it comes to sexual intercourse, most of the world is telling you that it is all about you. It’s about your pleasure, your satisfaction, your excitement, your fantasies and so on and so forth. Either blatantly or surreptitiously, the message of selfishness in sex is rampant. This type of selfish perspective towards sexual intercourse has dramatically impacted the way that the average person views making love within the confines of their marriage.

We are in the middle of a multi week series answering the question: “How can I find health in my marriage.” Last week we talked about creating margin in your life so that you actually can enjoy your spouse rather than simply run past your spouse while slapping five (or snapping at them). Today’s pointer: Learn to love and respect. In his book Love and Respect, Dr. Emerson Eggerichs provides some phenomenal insight into marriage and how the Bible informs our relationships. At the core of the book is the biblical idea from Ephesians 5 that men are commanded to love their wives and wives are commanded to respect their husbands. Why the difference? Why not simply encourage both to love and respect one another?...Keep Reading
