A 6 Week DVD – based Lenten Study on Wednesday Evenings
6:30-8pm in the MUDRoom Cafe
He Chose The Nails : Is your heart unsettled by the chaos of the world? Are you heavy-laden with bad moments, mad moments, or anxious moments?
Today, rest in God’s self-giving love and leave all your troubles at the foot of the cross.
In He Chose the Nails, Max Lucado observes that the last moments leading up to Jesus’
death were not left up to chance. God chose the path; he selected the nails. Our Lord
planted the trio of crosses and painted the sign. God was never more sovereign than in the details of the death of his Son. And in those details are gifts Christ provided for us…the cross. The thorns. The nails. His seamless robe. The empty tomb. God didn’t have to give us all these things, you know. The only required act for our salvation was the shedding of blood, yet he did much more. So much more. In this Easter season study, Max will help you: Experience Lent as a time not to just give up something, but to prepare to receive good gifts from God. Take comfort that Jesus understands everything you face in this life. Receive the grace of Christ’s work for us, and cooperate with God’s work in us to make us more like him. Stand firm in the promise that you are forgiven, and you are welcome in God’s presence, no matter what you’ve done.
