Series 10 - Real Passion (Easter)Easter weekend is over.  Wow!  Our subject was the The Real Crucifixion."  We covered the last 9 hours of Christ's suffering from Mark 15:1-39.

What to say…what to say?

  • Unnecessary Pain — I know this is a big tradition and big honor…crucifying themselves…but…
  • Book - Case for Christ Crucifixion Explained — FYI, the two quotes I used from Lee Strobel's book The Case for Christ are on p.261 (scourging) and pp.263-269 (crucifixion).
  • Crucifixion Analyzed — Here's a website that gives you more detail info & charts on the suffering of the crucifixion.  It gave me pause…thinking about the AMAZING, UNCONDITIONAL, ENDLESS LOVE…of our God to us.
  • Video - The Last Painting Easter Video
    — We showed the Video The Last Painting to set the stage during the message.  For those of you who didn't realize it, it's a painting of Jesus' bloodied face, looking down & to our left.
  • Final Stats
    — What a fantastic weekend.  People invited their friends and family
    like crazy and we ended up having over 2200 people in the 4 services! 
    We had 5-10 people profess Christ in each service, which means 20-30
    people professed Christ! (Awesome.)  A few people came up afterward and
    told me they received Christ.  But I don't have the final stats yet on
    how many wrote their names down.
  • Final Song — Here's something wild. Several hours after the service, I couldn't get our final song out of my mind.  It was "Our God" by Chris Tomlin.  (Side Note: I thought our choir ROCKED for the whole day. Loved it.) Anyway, I mentioned the song to my family, and my son said, "I can't get that song out of my mind too!"  🙂
