Don’t let them silence you

Today I want to challenge all of you.

Text everyone you know: “God’s not dead he is surely alive!” or upload a photo to social media and #heissurelyalive #dontletthemsilenceyou

I did this challenge yesterday, and I got some results. Some responded by saying “Amen!”, and others didn’t respond at all. But, you are planting a seed, and God will work on their hearts.

Don’t be afraid to share Jesus with others! Speak out and share the good news! Don’t let people who don’t believe in Jesus silence you! Stand up for what you believe.

Stand up for Jesus.

God’s Not Dead 2

Sorry I haven’t posted in a while, I’ve been busy with Easter, and Spring Break.

Yesterday my family and I went to see God’s not Dead 2. And, it was a great movie!

Here is the movie’s description: High school history teacher Grace Wesley (Melissa Joan Hart) comes under fire for answering a student’s (Hayley Orrantia) question about Jesus. When Grace refuses to apologize, the school board votes to suspend her and threatens to revoke her teaching certificate. Forced to stand trial to save her career, Grace hires young lawyer Tom Endler (Jesse Metcalfe) to defend her in court. Endler devises a powerful strategy to show the jury the historical significance of Wesley’s classroom discussion. And, Grace teaches her students in the process, to stand up for what they believe. Not to let people silence you. “God’s Not Dead he is surely alive!”

Try to go see God’s not dead 2 and if you haven’t seen God’s not dead, I suggest you go see it too! They are both great movies, and I loved them!

 

The tomb is empty!

John 20:1-18 Early on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene went to the tomb. It was still dark. She saw that the stone had been moved away from the entrance. So she ran to Simon Peter and another disciple, the one Jesus loved. She said, “They have taken the Lord out of the tomb! We don’t know where they have put him!”

So Peter and the other disciple started out for the tomb.Both of them were running. The other disciple ran faster than Peter. He reached the tomb first. He bent over and looked in at the strips of linen lying there. But he did not go in. Then Simon Peter came along behind him. He went straight into the tomb. He saw the strips of linen lying there. He also saw the funeral cloth that had been wrapped around Jesus’ head. The cloth was still lying in its place. It was separate from the linen. The disciple who had reached the tomb first also went inside. He saw and believed. They still did not understand from Scripture that Jesus had to rise from the dead. 10 Then the disciples went back to where they were staying.

Jesus Appears to Mary Magdalene

11 But Mary stood outside the tomb crying. As she cried, she bent over to look into the tomb. 12 She saw two angels dressed in white. They were seated where Jesus’ body had been. One of them was where Jesus’ head had been laid. The other sat where his feet had been placed.

13 They asked her, “Woman, why are you crying?”

“They have taken my Lord away,” she said. “I don’t know where they have put him.” 14 Then she turned around and saw Jesus standing there. But she didn’t realize that it was Jesus.

15 He asked her, “Woman, why are you crying? Who are you looking for?”

She thought he was the gardener. So she said, “Sir, did you carry him away? Tell me where you put him. Then I will go and get him.”

16 Jesus said to her, “Mary.”

She turned toward him. Then she cried out in the Aramaic language, “Rabboni!” Rabboni means Teacher.

17 Jesus said, “Do not hold on to me. I have not yet ascended to the Father. Instead, go to those who believe in me. Tell them, ‘I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God.’ ”

18 Mary Magdalene went to the disciples with the news. She said, “I have seen the Lord!” And she told them that he had said these things to her.

What I recommend………….

Here are some christian movies, that are really good, and that I recommend for you to see.

Courageous — It is really good for fathers and men because it explains what their role is supposed to be as fathers. Ladies you can watch it too!!!

God’s Not Dead— It is about this college boy who wants to prove that God is not dead.But he has an atheist professor who believes God is dead, and he will flunk the boy if he don’t admit that God is dead.

Do You Believe — There are many different stories being shown in this movie. Some are being persecuted for their beliefs, others are being told about Jesus.But all the stories dwindle down to one question.. Do you believe in Jesus Christ?

Facing the giants — A football coach for a high school is about to be put out of his job. The team has not won one game the whole season. He and his wife want a baby but tragic news “blows up” that hope. Their struggling  financially and they need hope. Then they find out that Jesus is their only hope and that he will help them overcome the giants of fear.
