After Easter

John 20:19-22 & John 14:27.  Jesus said, “Peace be with you! As the Father has sent me, I am sending you.” And with that he breathed on them and said, “Receive the Holy Spirit. We are not on our own. We have been given the Holy Spirit to help us as we go out to tell others of the Good News.

Hope in the Wilderness

Isaiah 8:17 & Deuteronomy 8:6-16. We have hope in the past, the present, the future. A living hope in Jesus. We can know that Jesus died for us and we are free; He is with us now; He desires to make all things new.

Sorrow and Hope

Isaiah 53:1-5, Luke 19:37-45, Lamentations 1:3-4, Lamentations 3:22-24, John 16:20-22 & Psalm 13 If we care deeply, we can feel sorrow, but sorrow shouldn’t lead to hopelessness. Jesus’ resurrection should give us hope for the future.
