As I sit down to write this article, my mind continually goes to the parents, teachers, administrators, and citizens of Uvalde, Texas. It’s impossible for me to think too long about work without my mind drifting to those people. It’s another horrific loss that our nation must bear. It’s another loss that parents must bear. It’s another level of fear for all parents and grandparents who put their children on a school bus every morning. We grieve for the loss of these 19 children and their two very brave teachers. We grieve for the students, teachers, and administrators that survived and will have post traumatic stress for the rest of their lives. We grieve for the horrors of pure evil personified through one rogue 18-year-old. Our nation is deeply gripped right now in grief and rightly so. Jesus said, “Blessed are those who mourn for they will be comforted” (Matthew 5:4). One of the things that each of us can do is to come alongside of those who are grieving in support of them.

I am not a golfer and I rarely pay attention to the sport. However, this year, as the Master’s tournament approached, I was intrigued because Tiger Woods was making a comeback run after his near death experience a year ago in a car accident. While I did not watch the tournament, I followed the results in the news. While Tiger Woods did not do very well by his own historical standards, a new, young, and upcoming young man did. You will want to get to know this young man and here’s why.

 “He is not here, for He has risen, just as he said. Come, see the place where He was lying” (Matthew 28:6). These are the words the angel of the Lord spoke to Mary Magdelene and Mary, the mother of Jesus, when they approached the tomb where Jesus’ body was buried 3 days earlier on Friday afternoon. That Sunday was the day that changed the world, and all eternity, for people who place their faith and trust in Jesus Christ.

March Newsletter

On Wednesday, March 2, 2022, we will begin the season of the church calendar that has traditionally been called, “Lent.” Lent is a 40 day season (not counting Sundays) that culminates on the day our Lord Jesus rose again from the dead. While there is no Biblical mandate to observe this season, none of the apostles, as far as we know observed Lent, and there are no Biblical passages about Lent, it is nonetheless a useful time for all Christians.

Romans 7:18–25 (NASB), “ 18 For I know that nothing good dwells in me, that is, in my flesh; for the willing is present in me, but the doing of the good is not. 19 For the good that I want, I do not do, but I practice the very evil that I do not want. 20 But if I am doing the very thing I do not want, I am no longer the one doing it, but sin which dwells in me. 21 I find then the principle that evil is present in me, the one who wants to do good. 22 For I joyfully concur with the law of God in the inner man, 23 but I see a different law in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin which is in my members. 24 Wretched man that I am! Who will set me free from the body of this death? 25 Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, on the one hand I myself with my mind am serving the law of God, but on the other, with my flesh the law of sin.”
