Growing up, we would hear story after story about the meaning of Easter and why it was worth celebrating. For many of us, it didn’t matter what our parents or Sunday School leaders said; Easter was a day worth celebrating because it meant we got candy from a giant anthropomorphic rabbit. The resurrection of Jesus wasn’t really weighing on my brain or on my soul at that point. I guess I thought, “If he is already out of the grave and it is empty, why bother digging it again

This week we will be seeing dozens of posts, blogs, articles, videos, etc. about the year that we as a people just went through. The good, the bad, the new, and the old will be discussed over and over in the days to come. However, this will not be one of those stories.

This past Sunday, we wrapped up our walk through the book of Ephesians after a 13-week journey. Like any of Paul’s letters, there was plenty to take away from this book of Scripture but if we spend any significant time in any part of the Bible, we begin to see a common theme--especially in Paul’s writings: the Gospel of Jesus is everything!

In the final message of the series, Jeremy Gardner gave three points of application for us based on the entirety of Ephesians:

By: Greg McGaha, Sharon Church Student Pastor 

May this blog begin with John the Baptist’s quote to his own disciples found in John 3:30. “He (Jesus) must become greater; I (Greg) must become less.” There is nothing good in me apart from the grace afforded me at the Cross. This grace to have received the infusion of the Spirit of the living God inside my earthy vessel.

Today is November 3, 2020. It is a Tuesday. It’s election day. This means many of us woke up with a different feeling in our hearts, stomachs, and minds than a typical Tuesday morning.
