C MPASS More. We suffer from always wanting more. We have an insatiable need for transcendence. We have expectations designed to disappoint. As wonderful as life on earth can be at its best, life on earth will always leave a niggling longing for something more. God never intended earth to satisfy fully. God designed our unfulfilled longing to ignite our search for him and his eternal home.
Where EVERYONE Is Welcome!! SERVICE 10 AM April 13, 2014 MESSAGE Rev. Mark Davis
The Palm Sunday crowd was passionate. They were looking for a political messiah who would set things right and here is where the frustration is born, they wanted things set right right NOW. They turned on Jesus when they realized his kingdom was different. They wanted more and they wanted it right now. Christians like to say that God will never give us more than we can handle. I have often said that. In one sense it is true. In another it is utterly mistaken. God often gives us more than we can handle. The things we can’t handle pry our hands off self-sufficiency and temporal things. Things we can’t handle cast our hearts onto dependence on God. I bless God for the things I have not been able to handle. The things I could not handle drove my heart to God. I can’t handle meaningless death. I can’t handle suffering with no hope of eternal relief. I can’t handle injustice running amok. I do not believe God ever intended us to handle such things on our own.

GREETERS Colleen Chapman Mike Davenport Michelle Dyer Audrey Silver Rick Smith
Palm Sunday was a foretaste. Yes, we do need a messiah, a leader who will set things right. We do need a problem solver who will defeat cancer once and for all. And we have one in Jesus. The victory of Easter is not complete. Not yet. Jesus will return to finish His work. There is more.
