In a recent conversation I mentioned how Jesus is born every Christmas and dies a few months later on Good Friday. Realistically we know that Jesus was born, lived 30 years before his baptism and commissioning to ministry, and then lived another 3 years before he was crucified by the Romans. While I proposed that we should have a 33-year cycle, no one was listening or interested because annually is the traditional way we remember these events. So each year, we pause on Good Friday to remember the day Jesus was killed. Another thought comes to mind; maybe we should pause and think about this daily, especially in light of the fact that we kill Jesus in different ways nearly every day. How much of Jesus’ lordship do we suppress? How often do we ignore or reject his teachings? Do we still believe in miracles or did those die with him? And what about his love for us and others? If we did an honest assessment of our lives, we would find that many of us kill or at the very least, suppress Jesus’ influence upon our everyday existence. Few of us have given ourselves completely to him. This series will hopefully help us recognize this in our lives but also look to the ways in which the Holy Spirit can revive us as followers of Jesus. The local church is the hope of the world and the church functions at its peak when its people are following the living Lord.
You are invited to join us for our next worship series title Killing Jesus.
