It’s easy to become cynical.
- An email from a wealthy foreigner says he needs help moving millions of dollars from his homeland and promises a hefty percentage of this fortune as a reward for you assisting him.
- An announcement informs you that you’ve won large sums of money in a foreign lottery.
- An advertiser wants to pay you to be a ‘secret’ or ‘mystery’ shopper.
They say “If it seems too good to be true, it probably is (too good to be true)!” The website http://www.snopes.com has a good time proving that point.
And because of this cynicism it may be hard to get excited when we hear that the Jesus who died on the cross 2,000 years ago really did come back to life and will come back to earth soon! But these facts aren’t too good to be true! He is alive!
On this weekend when much of the Christian world is thinking about Jesus death, burial and resurrection it might be especially good to invite a friend to church with you as we study Mark 16, “He’s Alive!” this Sabbath and celebrate the communion service together at Richardson (9am & 11:30am) as we conclude our three-month journey through the Book of Mark.
- Bible Bookmarks for January, February & March.
- Desire of Ages Inspired Commentary on Jesus’ life.
- Suggestions on how to take the journey.
All events are open to the public and free of charge at 1201 W. Belt Line Road, Richardson, Texas. Feel free to invite a friend to join you in the journey!
“Do not be alarmed. You seek Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He is risen! He is not here. See the place where they laid Him.” Mark 16:7.
