The End Of The World, Part 1

What Do You Do When You FEEL Like It’s The End Of The World?

This past Easter Sunday we launched our new series called, "The End Of The World." Have you ever felt like your world was coming to an end? I know that I sure have! We all have really bad moments in life that can cause us to wish that life was over. We can learn some incredible truths from the life, death & resurrection of Jesus that can help us in those 'end of the world' moments. Obviously, I'm speaking of a figurative end of the world and not a literal one in this particular message. Below are the notes and some key thoughts from that Easter Sundays message. Next week I'll be talking & posting about the literal end of the world and how you can survive it!

Garden of Gethsemane (Luke 22:39-44)
Jesus taught us that even in our worst hour, we should turn to God and trust in His strength for every issue in our lives!
“… the floods of destruction swept over me. The grave wrapped its ropes around me. Death itself stared me in the face. But in my distress I cried out to the Lord and, I prayed to my God for help.” Psalm 18:4-6 (NLT)
“God is my savior. I will trust Him and not be afraid. The Lord gives me power and strength.” Isaiah 12:2 (TEV)

On The Road To Golgotha (Luke 23:26)
Even Jesus needed help to carry His cross! In your darkest hour is when you need God & OTHERS the most!
“…Since we are all one body in Christ, we belong to each other, and each of us needs all the others.” Romans 12:5 (NLT)

Death On The Cross (Luke 23:32-34; 39-43)
When Jesus’ world was coming to an end, He refused to become bitter & He extended grace to others-- even until His last breath!
When they came to the place called the Skull, there they crucified him... Jesus said, "Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing." Luke 23:33-34
“Watch out that no bitterness takes root among you... it causes deep trouble, hurting many in their spiritual lives.” Hebrews 12:15 (LB)
“If anyone has material possessions and sees his brother in need but has no pity on him, how can the love of God be in him?” 1 John 3:17 (1 Sam. 12:23, Galatians 6:2)

With God, Every End Brings A New Beginning! (Luke 24:1-8)
The Resurrection Of Jesus Christ Brings Hope Even When You Feel Like It’s The End Of The World!
"I am the Living One; I was dead, and behold I am alive for ever and ever! And I hold the keys of death and Hades." Revelations 1:18

Great devotional, "Exceedingly Abundantly"

Today I read a great devotional from Joel Osteen Ministries that I thought would be an encouragement to you. To often we settle for mediocrity & second best in our lives. Many times I trust God for so little when He really wants to bless me big! I want to challenge you today to remember that God can do more in & through your life than what your currently believing for! Take a step & believe big today! TODAY'S SCRIPTURE "Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever" (Ephesians 3:20-21, NKJ) TODAY'S WORD from Joel and Victoria God wants to do exceedingly abundantly above all you can ever ask, think, or imagine. In another place, it says that no person has ever seen, heard, or even imagined the wonderful things that God has in store for those who love the Lord. But notice that it's acco

God, make a fresh start in me, shape a Genesis week from the chaos of my life...”.   Psalm 51:7-15 (MSG) On July 4, 2012, hundreds of thousands of people eagerly gathered in San Diego, California, to enjoy an 18-minute fireworks show that was advertised as one of the "biggest in the nation."   People waited for hours for what was sure to be the best ever Big Bay Boom. Hundreds of thousands of dollars and hundreds of hours had been spent on planning and preparing for this epic event.  A few minutes before the anticipated 9 p.m. start time, the show began, unexpectedly. In one loud blast, all of the fireworks ignited simultaneously. Th
