Pastor Michael Todd returned to the pulpit just in time for Resurrection Sunday. After a brief hiatus Pastor Todd came back with a message that truly delivered. The Sunday service began with a Grammy worthy performance to glorify Jesus Christ. Then Pastor Todd preached a special Easter message, while connecting it all the way back to the Garden of Eden.

As always enjoy and watch the service for yourself, below are a few notes.

Notes

  1. All people were created to be in a place of God’s presence
  2. Your preference is never better than God’s presence
  3. There’s value in being vulnerable
  4. Select partners
  5. Surrender power
  6. The pinnacle of purpose is defined by surrender, not strength
  7. Jesus didn’t give up in the garden, so you don’t have to give up in the garden
  8. Giving up comes from weariness, surrender comes from willingness

Scripture

For God was in Christ ,reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting people’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation. (2 Corinthians 5:19)

Then Jesus went with his disciples to a place called Gethsemane, and he said to them, “Sit here while I go over there and pray. (Matthew 26:36)

Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective (James 5:16)

Then he said to them, “My soul is overwhelmed with sorrow to the point of death. Stay here and keep watch with me.” (Matthew 26:38)

He went away a second time and prayed, “My Father, if it is not possible for this cup to be taken away unless I drink it, may your will be done.” (Matthew 26:42)

When he came back, he again found them sleeping, because their eyes were heavy. (Matthew 26:43)

But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed. (Isaiah 53:5)

Fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. (Hebrews 12:2)

Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. (Galatians 6:9)
