THE TRANSFIGURATION OF OUR LORD
There was only one time before his resurrection that Jesus let the brilliance of his divine glory shine through. That was on the Mountain of Transfiguration when his whole appearance became brighter than the sun. But the brilliant glory of Jesus Christ still shines today as it did on that mountain so long ago. Join us this Sunday as we read and talk about 2 Corinthians 3:4-6, "Do You See The Light?"
This coming Wednesday we begin our forty day journey of following our Savior to the cross for us. The theme for the messages this year is: "Ironies of the Passion." Worship begins at 6:30 pm. Ash Wednesday worship will include the Imposition of Ashes and the Lord's Supper. There will be a potluck supper at 5:30 pm.
Webster's Dictionary defines irony as "something that is the opposite of what is expected."
The cross of Jesus Christ is filled with irony.
One of the great ironies of the cross is this: "Everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted" (Luke 18:14).
Those who think they are fine with God without the cross will experience the opposite of what they expected: the depths of hell.
Those who are convinced they deserve the lowest hell from God, through that cross will be exalted to the highest heaven.
"Jesus, may our hearts be burning
With more fervent love for you!
May our eyes be ever turning
To behold your cross anew,
Till in glory parted never
From our Savior's blessed side,
Graven in our hearts forever,
Dwell the cross, the Crucified!"
(Christian Worship, #108)
Join us this Wednesday night, February 10, at 6:30 pm to come a little closer to the the cross through the word of God.
