Thanksgiving Eve Service 2014 - Pastor John Barnett
Good Friday Service - The Gospel in Ten Words from the Alter of the Cross - Pastor John Barnett
Thanksgiving Eve - The Thanksgiving Celebration Instituted by God Himself - Pastor John Barnett
Our theme for this year as a church is Hebrews 13:20-21. First listen to it in the (NKJV):
Now may the God of peace who brought up our Lord Jesus from the dead, that great Shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant, 21 make you complete in every good work to do His will, working in you what is well pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen.
Now may the God of peace who brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, the great shepherd of the sheep, by the blood of the eternal covenant, 21 equip you with everything good that you may do his will, working in us that which is pleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen.
On this Good Friday, our focus is upon the day that mankind murdered its Maker. As we turn to John 18, we begin to look at the most complete and reliable record of the Good Friday events. As we read the following verses, analyze with me just WHO it was that they crucified! First we see:
The One Crucified Had a
Name Above All Names
As you turn to each passage and follow along as I read, look for the answer to these questions.
Question One: Who can make an entire army fall flat on their faces by just speaking His Name outloud? Only Someone with: a Name above all names.
The greatest thing in all of life is knowing, loving and serving God.
The most amazing thing in life is that God uses any of us with all of our weaknesses and struggles.
With those two thoughts in mind, on this Mother's Day, consider that Mary was offered one of the biggest jobs in the world. As we open to Luke 1:28, ponder this question with me:
When God Picked A Woman to Raise His Son, What Did He Look For?
