From The Heart 

From the Heart

John 19:17,18 “And He, bearing His cross, went out to a place called the Place of a Skull, which is called in Hebrew, Golgotha, where they crucified Him, and two other with Him, one on either side, and Jesus in the middle.”

The word cross means a stake or post. A pole or cross as an instrument of capital punishment. The word “cross” is used 28 times in the New Testament.

Each of the Gospel writers take a different perspective of Jesus dying on the cross.

Matthew points to Jesus as the royal Messiah who faced His destiny in complete control of the situation. Jesus’ vindication was found not only in the rending of the veil and the centurion‘s testimony but in the remarkable raising of the Old Testament saints.

Mark emphasized the messianic meaning, using the taunts of the crowds to “save yourself” as an unconscious prophecy pointed to the resurrection.

Luke has perhaps the most unique portrayal with two emphasis: Jesus as the righteous Martyr who forgave His enemies and the crucifixion as an awesome scene of reverence and worship.

John’s narration is perhaps the most dramatic. At the core is Jesus’ sovereign control of the whole scene.

For me, the cross is where Jesus paid my sin and forgave me which enables me to be a child of God for all eternity.

DivorceCare

Beginning February 11th, we will be hosting our Spring Series of DivorceCare, a ministry of personal and relational healing for those affected by the current or past pains of divorce. Through real-life video stories, study, and supportive and confidential discussions, healing that one may have never dreamed possible can come from the Lord.

The course takes 13-weeks to complete, and we will be hosting on Monday Evenings from 6:30-8:30 here at Oak Grove. Weekly topics include:

1) What’s Happening To Me?
2) The Road To Healing / Finding Help
3) Facing My Anger
4) Facing My Depression
5) Facing My Loneliness
6) What Does The Owner’s Manual Say?
7) New Relationships
8) Financial Survival
9) KidCare
10) Single Sexuality
11) Forgiveness
12) Reconciliation
13) Moving On, Growing Closer To God

If you believe you or someone you know and love could benefit from DivorceCare, please invite them to our group. It can be a huge step in a person’s relationship with God and others.
