Body building

Come on in. We have a seat just for you. We will worship, sing a few songs, hear the message God gave his servant for us and pray together.

When Jesus died things changed.

“51 At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. The earth shook, the rocks split 52 and the tombs broke open. The bodies of many holy people who had died were raised to life. 53 They came out of the tombs after Jesus’ resurrection and[e] went into the holy city and appeared to many people.”

The temple curtain was the separation between where God was and where men were. Jesus death tore that barrier in two. Jesus is our access to God.

Today is good day to be reconciled to God. We don’t have to do anything. Jesus did it all. We only need to admit that we need forgiveness, that we need reconciliation.

The picture I posted here is not my church but it represents all churches. Today Let us Come to church. Let us Be loved on by a Father God who is longing for our return. It’s not about the building, it’s about the person Jesus and what he has done. It’s about a merciful loving Heavenly Father longing to be reunited with his children.

An after thought.

The Bible refers to followers of Jesus as many things, the body of Christ is one of those terms. Since Jesus ascended into heaven, he is not here, but he sent his Holy Spirit to live in and empower his followers so we become he his body here on earth. We are his hands to touch and heal a broken world. We are his feet to bring the good news of forgiveness, grace and mercy and love.

So let’s do some body building today. Come and join us and become part of the body of Christ Jesus.

I am a man. I am an older man. I am a husband and a dad and a grandpa. I am a disciple of Jesus. Because I am a disciple of Jesus much of what I write is about him, and I usually end what I write with a question, do you the reader know that Jesus loves you? He does. He loves us all but he loves you specifically. He loves me specifically. What will you do with that information today?
