Journey into the HEART of JESUS

Insight Kingdom

March/April 2012 Volume 14


Pastors’ Page Journey into the HEART of JESUS Jesus  is  hanging  from  a  cross  of  intense  suffering  and  shame.  And  from   dry,  parched  lips  He  speaks.  Are  they  words  of  pity  or  is  He  pronouncing   judgment?  No.  Amazingly,  they  are  words  of  forgiveness,  assurance,   compassion,  anguish,  suffering,  and  finally  words  of  submission.

Last  words  are  always  important.  But  surely  there  can  be  no  last  words  as   significant  as  those  of  Jesus  on  the  cross.  Here  we  see  His  heart,  His  love   for  people,  people  whom  He  would  be  redeeming.  In  these  words,  we  see   the  humanity  of  Jesus.  In  His  final  words,  Jesus  leaves  us  all  a  powerful   example.   Think  about  what  you  would  talk  about  if  you  knew  you  were  looking  into   the  eyes  of  family,  friends  and  enemies  for  the  last  time.  Such  a  moment   would  be  a  sacred  moment.  It  would  be  a  time  for  you  to  carefully  weigh   your  words  and  speak  what  you  believe  is  most  important  for  your   listeners  to  remember  after  you  are  gone.   If  you  had  the  opportunity  to  speak  your  last  words  to  those  whom  you   love,  wouldn’t  you  chose  your  words  carefully?  Wouldn’t  be  a  time  to  say   the  things  that  were  most  important  and  dear  to  your  heart  -­‐  words  that   communicated  the  deepest  emotions  of  your  soul  to  your  loved  ones  and   even  bystanders? From  now  to  Easter,  let’s  journey  together  into  the  heart  of  Jesus  as  we   hear  His  final  words  from  the  cross.   Pastor  Bob

Vision: Life with Jesus - everyday, everywhere.

Mission: To be a community of believers fully devoted to Christ making disciples in our City and beyond.

AT THE CROSS The five thousand fed Those raised from the dead For them he paid the cost But they were distant at the cross The possessed that were freed Those provided their need They thanked him on that day But on the cross where were they? The lost in whom he sought The multitudes that were taught They chose to praise his name But at Calvary they never came In the end as Jesus hung Aching body, gasping lung Was a criminal nearing death That learned before final breath That Jesus is truly royalty The lion worthy of loyalty Not by miracles performed Or the way that he was born But by being at the cross On the day when all seemed lost To witness the willing sacrifice Choose to pay the ultimate price

From the book: Prism Poetry, Refracting Life by Timothy M. Bowers 2

NO GOD COULD EVER FORGIVE ME

Saturday & Sunday April 7th & 8th, 6pm

In a prison system full of hate, violence and hopelessness, one man seeks to bring hope and forgiveness to others who are lost. But when a dark and cruel secret is revealed to him, the very fabric of his faith is put to the test. Can he put aside his personal hurt and offer God’s forgiveness to those who caused him pain, or are there some sins that can never be forgiven?

Easter Event for KIDS:

Parenting Tips Envision a Positive Future Take a few minutes and imagine what your children will be like as adults. Some parents have immediate thoughts of terror and doom, but instead, look at the good qualities your children have and imagine how those qualities will benefit them later in life. Then share those observations with your children.  Envisioning a positive future looks beyond the day-to-day discipline and says, "I see qualities in you that are going to make you successful." Statements like, "With that kind of thoughtfulness you're going to make a great husband." Or "Your thoroughness is going to make you a valuable employee someday." When parents learn to view their children this way, they look past the daily grind of parenting to what their children are becoming. What is my child good at? What do I see now that will bring success as my child grows? We've probably all heard the statement that children believe what we say about them. If a parent tells a child he'll never amount to anything, he's likely to incorporate that into his belief about himself and it may end up becoming true. We can take that same principle and teach our children to see the good in themselves, the specific ways that God has blessed them.  Interestingly enough, giving our children a positive vision for the future encourages them to live up to it now. The qualities we focus on end up being the ones they see in themselves and develop.   Envisioning a positive future gives our children hope and direction. It says, "You're going to make it." "I believe in you." It's a way to honor our children. Like giving them a gift that will last a lifetime, a hopeful way of looking at themselves and their life.  After all God does this for us on a regular basis. Verses like Philippians 1:6 give us hope to live now to the fullest. "He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus." This parenting tip comes from the book, Say Goodbye to Whining, Complaining, and Bad Attitudes, In You and Your Kids, by Dr Scott Turansky and Joanne Miller, RN, BSN.

Journey  to  Discipleship Christ  -­‐  Growing  in  the  Knowledge  of  Christ  -­‐  2  Peter  3:18

The  first  step  in  our  faith  Journey  is  to  gain  a  greater  understanding  of  Christ  through  study   of  the  Bible  and  the  prac9ce  of  prayer.

Character  -­‐  Being  Transformed  into  the  Image  of  Christ    -­‐  James  1:23-­‐24,  2  Corinthians  3:18

We  should  examine  ourselves  and  compare  our  character  to  that  of  Christ's.    This  is  a  life-­‐long   process,  but  we  need  to  start  somewhere.

Calling  -­‐  Pursuing  the  Call  of  Christ  -­‐  Philippians  3:14,  1  Peter  2:21

God  has  a  plan  and  purpose  for  us.    As  we  discover  our  giEings,  we  are  more  prepared  to  walk   in  our  des9ny.

Community  -­‐  Serving  the  Body  of  Christ  -­‐  Ephesians  2:10,  Romans  12:3-­‐8

The  first  expression  of  our  giEs  is  oEen  in  a  ministry  or  group  in  the  community  of  faith.     We  are  all  parts  of  the  Body.  Are  we  doing  our  part?

Care  -­‐  Loving  the  NaLons  as  Christ  -­‐    2  Corinthians  5:14-­‐15,  20,  MaOhew  28:19-­‐20

Our  calling  extends  to  making  disciples  of  all  na9ons.    When  we  care,  we  give  people  the   opportunity  to  experience  God's  love  in  a  prac9cal  way,  so  we  can  invite  them  to  start  a  faith   journey.
