Easter At The Tent

Amazing Easter Celebration!
 
Our Easter Service under a big tent on the Business Isle here on Capri has became one of the most inspiring gatherings of the year.
 
We celebrated The Resurrection of Our Lord and Savior with over 1370 of our family and friends.  Lets make the commitment to share with others the good news from Easter and keep in our hearts His glorious promises of eternal life for all who believe in Him. 
 
We would like to thank Pastor Curt, Pastor Steven, Pastor Tim, Larry Ford – Special guest artist, Our Leaders, The Celebration Easter Choir, Capristudents Ministry and all the volunteers. Well done Easter Team! Outstanding Work!
 
Here are some photos from Easter Sunday at the tent. There are also a few shots from the Fiddler’s Creek Easter service that Pastor Curt and Pastor Steven lead before our service.

In Christ Alone

Yesterday was fantastic, perfect weather, praise and worship, outstanding music, great message! I could go on long about the blessings of Easter but let me instead encapsulate one of the songs Larry Ford sang yesterday. From “In Christ Alone”:
In Christ alone my hope is found, He is my light, my strength, my song … Till on the cross as Jesus died, the wrath of God was satisfied, for every sin on Him was laid, here in the death of Christ I live … Then bursting forth in glorious day, up from the grave He rose again … For I am His and He is mine, bought with the precious blood of Christ …No guilt in life, no fear in death, this is the power of Christ in me …Till He returns or calls me home, here in the power of Christ I’ll stand.”
Such a powerful song. Let us all stand in that power, show the world that power, show the world that love! The world gets more unlovable every day, as were we, but He still loved us.We thank You so much Lord for that blessed Easter morning!

Fly In Unity

As John recorded one of Jesus’ last prayers on earth, notice the theme He was praying. “… that they all may be one, as You, Father, are one in Me, and I in You, that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe You sent Me … that they may be one just as We are one: I in them and You in Me; that they may be perfect in one, and that the world may know that You have sent me …” In many of Paul’s letters, he pleads the same thing, unity. We are to be one so the world will believe God sent Jesus. So how are we doing on that? Terrible! What is wrong with humans? I guess they are just human but that’s no excuse. When we accept God’s grace, Jesus’ sacrifice for us, we become His children, one family, one with Him. Yeah, every family bickers over things, but this is more than your earthly family. He gave us a few simple rules to follow, a few steps to follow, nothing all that hard. We are to be “one so that the world may believe.” Let me reiterate that one more time. We are to be one so that the world may believe. That is a major responsibility on our part. Our first priority in all things should be obedience to Him and to put our egos in our back pocket and sit on it. In this messed up world, now more than ever, we need to follow Jesus’ words, “A new commandment I give you, that you love one another, as I have loved you, that you love one another. By this all will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.”

Enter with Joy

What motivates you? Promise of a big reward or something in the hand right away? A drill sergeant screaming in your face or someone softly whispering in your ear? We all are motivated in different ways but when it comes to worshiping the Lord, we should be motivated by gratitude. Think about who God is (or try to even comprehend His awesome being), then think about His incredible, marvelous creation, then realize that the One who put the stars in place wants to have a personal relationship with you so much that He provided the way through His Son’s sacrifice, and then He wants to give you His Holy Spirit and an eternal home! If that doesn’t motivate you with gratitude I guess nothing will! Just like the early church, we should be excited and full of joy, looking forward to meeting together whenever we can and wanting to share that excitement and joy with others. So, stop sucking on lemons, enter His gates with thanksgiving in your heart, enter His courts with praise, and invite others to share your joy!

Glory to God

“Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.” Did you get that? In whatever you do … we may need to reiterate that before the next church dinner stampede. Do you consciously think about honoring God in everything you do? Are you doing all to the glory of God when you speed around and cut off that idiot driver in front of you or when you eat a whole pizza by yourself or when you drink too much wine in a public place or when you do a shoddy job at work? Do you honor God with your actions and interactions with people? Hey, it’s not easy being a Christian. If you tell people you serve the risen Savior, then you need to live up to the high standards He expects. You’re an ambassador for Him and are being scrutinized in all that you do. To do all to the glory of a God that is so glorious that no one can see His face and live can be a daunting task, but it is what He calls us to do. As a body of believers, let us encourage one another to fulfill that high calling in all we do!

The Greatest

“I am the greatest,” Ali told everyone and anyone who would listen, though Frazier, Norton, Spinks, and Holmes seemed to disagree.What is it with man’s fascination with being the greatest? In every venue, sports, science, literature, etc, people want to know who is the greatest. How do you define the greatest anyway? Besides, you’re only the greatest until someone greater comes along. But there is someone who is “the greatest” because there will never be one greater. Jesus, the Son of God, co-creator of all things, emptied Himself to become a man and to serve and sacrifice for us all. When His Apostles were arguing about which one would be the greatest in heaven, Jesus showed them how to be great. He took a bowl and a towel and washed their feet, one of the lowliest things to do in their culture. The King of Kings and Lord of Lords washing their feet! You want to be great in heaven? Quietly and humbly serve others here on earth. Think of others more highly than yourself, teach children about the Lord and be an example for them to follow. Then with a child like faith, follow the footsteps Jesus left behind.

Let’s Get Holy

#MotivationMondayatCapri

 
Man makes things complicated, God makes things simple. God says do something this way and man says, yeah, but let’s add a bunch of stuff to that to make it confusing and hard to do. When the Pharisees and some scribes tried to intimidate Jesus because His disciples were not strictly following the traditions of the elders, He quickly put them in their place, showing how they were more concerned with man made rules instead of God’s. What about you? Are you more concerned with what your parents, priest, pastor, great aunt once told you than you are with what the Word of God says? Don’t get sidetracked into following man or holier than thou types that tell you they have all the answers. Some people love to hear themselves talk and many words do not necessarily make for much knowledge or wisdom. You want to be holy? Study and know God’s Word for yourself. Know what you believe and why and how to back it up with Scripture. Seek His guidance daily, obey His Word, and continually pray, “Create a clean heart in me oh Lord!”
