Reaching People & Helping Them Walk with God

Latest Message

April 23, 2017 – Brian Ashcraft

At one time or another, we’ve all questioned God’s heart. From our perspective, God’s action, or lack thereof, didn’t make sense. Then we throw down our IF statements: If you would’ve _______ (fill in the blank), then ______ (fill in the blank). God, what are you up to? Do you even care about me?

Mary and Martha were wrestling with these same questions when Lazarus passed away. Jesus didn’t berate them for their questions or shake His head in frustration over their grief. Instead, He was moved to tears for His friends. So, Jesus did what He had a habit of doing, making the impossible possible. In a foreshadowing of His own resurrection, Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead.

Power can force obedience, but only love can awaken love. In that moment, Jesus didn’t just display His power, but exhibited His love for others. Jesus invites our questions and doubts. He welcomes our hesitations. They don’t stop Him from showering with us love and inviting us into His presence.
