The Hand that Holds the Future

Going into 2019 with confidence

December 30, 2018 • Tom Louis

Throughout the Bible, the “hand of the LORD” represents God’s power, His actions, His blessings and more. Because the LORD is eternal, He also holds the future. As you enter 2019, go forward with confidence by knowing the One whose hand you are in.

The Road to Hope - Pt. 4 - Friday

April 14, 2019 • Randy Hageman

Today we move forward to the Friday of Holy Week, and it has historically been called “Good Friday.” It is the day Jesus was crucified and died on the cross. What seemed to be the darkest hour – and literally was dark – when Jesus’ cause seemed lost would prove to be Christ’s glorious triumph over sin and death. We’ll explore what happened and why it’s still so important to every person on this planet!

The Road to Hope - Pt. 3 - Tuesday

April 7, 2019 • Randy Hageman

Several chapters are devoted to the events occurring on Tuesday of Jesus’ last week. Yet, perhaps none are more striking than what he teaches on the Mount of Olives, as he and the disciples stare across the valley at the Temple in Jerusalem. He warns his disciples – then and now – of challenging times ahead, but that will not be the whole story. He encourages them and us to stay prepared and keep the faith and our hopes alive, for God will have the final word!

The Road to Hope - Pt. 2 - Monday

March 31, 2019 • Randy Hageman

Jesus has entered Jerusalem, with the crowds cheering and the religious leaders fuming. On Monday, Jesus returns to the Temple and becomes angry that the religious leaders have taken advantage of the common people and made it hard for Judaism to be a light to the nations for God. It’s easy to make the church all about us, but, as William Temple said, “The Church is the only society that exists for the benefit of those who are not its members.” Jesus still calls the Church to reach out to the least, the last and the lost!
