March 2024 Newsletter

Greetings in view of resurrection Sunday!

I am excited for the biblical fact of an empty tomb! Have you ever read about the two, thieves

that were crucified alongside Jesus? Luke 23:39-43 “One of the criminals who had been hanged

[on a cross beside Him] kept hurling abuse at Him, saying, “Are You not the Christ? Save

Yourself and us [from death]!” But the other one rebuked him, saying, “Do you not even fear

God, since you are under the same sentence of condemnation? We are suffering justly, because

we are getting what we deserve for what we have done; but this Man has done nothing

wrong.” And he was saying, “Jesus, [please] remember me when You come into Your

kingdom!” Jesus said to him, “I assure you and most solemnly say to you, today you will be with

Me in Paradise.”

There is one thief who curses Jesus and there is the other who puts his trust in Jesus. If Jesus

would have chosen not to respond to either thief we would have not much of a story. I would

also like to point out we would also have not much hope of joining Christ in the resurrection

either. Romans 3:23 informs us we have all sinned and fallen short of God’s glory. This means

we are all guilty. This guilt does not mean we stay in the sin condition. Romans 6:1-2

states: “What shall we say [to all this]? Should we continue in sin and practice sin as a habit, so

that [God’s gift of] grace may increase and overflow? 2 Certainly not! How can we, the very

ones who died to sin, continue to live in it any longer?”

Jesus has given us his word that we will be with him in paradise. The question is which thief are

you? I desire to be the thief that understands he desperately needs the one hanging next to him

on the cross. I am guilty but I place my sole trust and faith in Christ alone. I listen to several

podcast and one quote from Phil Robertson comes to mind. He said, “I have yet to see a better

plan for getting out of the ground. Until then I am going to stick with Jesus.” I am guilty but

Jesus empowers us all to walk out of our sin tombs! THE TOMB IS EMPTY and WE ARE

From Northern Kentucky Community Spiritual Director:

Geoff Egbers ;

As we head towards Easter what better gift to share with someone than to sponsor a family member, a friend, or a co worker to attend the Men’s 50th Emmaus Walk . Please continue to be in Prayer. Prayer is the only way this Men’s walk will be a success in the Name of Jesus Christ . Pray for the Holy Spirit to give you incite as to who to invite . Pray for the pilgrims and sponsors to answer God’s calling . We all want this walk to be a huge success. 

       The Men’s walk team has successfully completed training . I hear their Dying Moment was tearful and very emotional. This occurs only when the Holy Spirit is present and these men were touched by the Holy Spirit!!!  Please pray for protection of the team , pilgrims , sponsors, families, and the community from being attacked by Satan. Satan does not want this walk to be a success. So be in prayer that Satan be removed and that all are filled with the Living Water of Jesus and for protection by Jesus Heavenly army . 

See you all at Candlelight Service on Saturday 4/6/24 at Higher Ground where we will shout to the Lord in praise and thanksgiving for what God has done for these men and their families during this Men’s Walk . In Jesus Christ! Happy Easter!
