Cancel Imperfect People?

If we ever decided to CANCEL imperfect people from the Bible, we would be left with only one person… Jesus Christ.

God left the imperfect ones in the Word so that the contrast between perfection and imperfection would be crystal clear.

Also, we can learn lessons of failure and success from people who have tried, failed, got back up, and tried again—David, Peter, Thomas, Moses, Samson, etc.

The message is clear. Leave the imperfect examples there so we can learn what “not” to be like, but leave Jesus alone so we can learn WHO to be like.

In this world of “cancel culture,” there is only one who can genuinely cancel or remove our past sins and failures, and His Name is Jesus.

Romans 8:1 (NKJV) There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.

Easter- Christ is Risen

Christ is risen. He is risen indeed!

This declaration is familiar in many churches. As a triumphant statement of Christ's victory over the grave, it is a bold message for all to hear on Easter morning.

Gotquestions.org claims that this traditional Easter greeting in the Western church has sometimes been accompanied by the exchange of three kisses on alternate cheeks. Apparently a very old custom, it is sometimes called the Paschal greeting.

Take a Deeper Look at St. Patrick’s Day

We in the church don't make much of St. Patrick's day. The March holiday conjures up images of green beer, the green river in Chicago, parades, and shamrock cookies. Fun stuff for some. Dangerous for others, as victims of binge drinking might be able to tell you if they are still with us.

Why do we celebrate this day? Who was St. Patrick? Is there any message for the church in this story?

The Gospel

The hymn writer Anne Cousin wrote, “Jehovah lifted up His rod; O Christ, it fell on Thee! Thou wast sore stricken of Thy God; There’s not one stroke for me. Thy tears, Thy blood, beneath it flowed; Thy bruising healeth me.” 

Why did Jehovah lift his rod and strike Christ? It was because Christ was our substitute on the cross. This is the heart of the cross. 1 Peter 3:18 says, “For Christ also suffered once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous”. Christ suffered for the unrighteous. This means that the punishment he received was the penalty they deserved. Paul, in 2 Cor. 5:21, tells us that Christ was made sin for us so we could be made the righteousness of God in him. Christ was made sin.
