Settling for the Sidelines
What comes to mind when you think about the church? Jesus says, when you follow Me, you will be “filled with my joy” and “your joy will overflow!” The church is God's community where the joy of Heaven invades the sadness of earth. No matter what happens in the world around us, the empty tomb gives us reason to celebrate. Hopelessness is a lie. Pain is temporary. Darkness is defeated. And we’re called to invite everyone to experience the eternal party God is throwing.
