Reflections- "The person without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God but considers them foolishness, and cannot understand them because they are discerned only through the Spirit." -1 Corinthians 2:14
The Pastor's Perspective
I said when I started the Kick The Bucket List sermon series that it would either be one of the least popular series I've ever preached or, perhaps, one of the most popular ones. Whichever way you may already be feeling about the series, I think Sunday's message will be the most popular message in the series.
The message this Sunday is "Understand What Happens When I Die". Most people, whether they fear death or not, are at least a little bit curious about what happens when we die and what to expect immediately following death. We all have questions about it. This Sunday we will look at what the Bible says about the experience of death and what follows death.
This would be a great Sunday to invite a friend to church. Seriously! A lot of people wonder about what happens when they die. Ask someone to join you this Sunday and tell them what the sermon is about. They may just surprise you and show up!
I'll see you on Sunday,
