The second message in our series on the 5 Core Values of Anchor Church
The first message in our new series called "Anchored" in which we are discussing our 5 core values.
Jesus is Alive!
It is true!
It is good!
It is for you!
Happy Resurrection Day!
This week we entered into the story found in Luke 24:13-35 to explore what we can do when hope seems lost.
Some quotes from this message:
Jesus restores our lost hope by giving us a new perspective on the same situation.
Don't just look at your problem. Look at Jesus. Then, with him, you can see things in a new way.
To Jesus' disciples, victory did not look like death on a cross. But, God's plan was victory through death and resurrection.
Without death, there can be no resurrection.
"Jesus never sought to lure anyone to him by the offer of an easy way; he sought to challenge men and women, to waken the boldness and moral courage in their souls, by the offer of a way than which none could be higher and harder. He came not to make life easy but to challenge people to greatness." - William Barclay
The letter of Hebrews is addressing a group of Christians who are facing these kinds of things in life. So they needed a reminder about the reality of life and the offer of something that could bring steadiness in their sense of instability. They needed something that could keep them strong and stable against the currents, storms, and the drifting.
This is us too. We are in the same "boat". We have the same need.
