No one ever celebrates when someone they love dies. Yet the Bible tells us to proclaim, to give thanks for, even to rejoice in the death of Christ. Why? Because it was His death on the cross that paid the penalty for our sin and made us righteous before God. His death gives salvation and eternal life to all those who put their faith in Him. Whenever we take the Lord’s Supper, we are proclaiming His death — we are preaching the Gospel — and that is the greatest message we could ever share.
Anxiety and fear are relentless. These are two of the enemy’s most popular weapons that he uses against us. Unchecked fear can keep you in bed for hours past what is healthy or wise. Anxiety can keep us up at night and also show us a fiery anger in unkind speech and hurtful attitudes. Today’s message touches on how we as believers in Christ are not to worry. We are to to remember that if God takes care of the ravens of the air, as well as the lilies in the field, how much more than those are we to Him that He will take care of us.
