HIGHWAY TABERNACLE ~ RESURRECTION LIFE

"Following Jesus and Loving People"



Picture yourself at a parade and you're only 5 years old. There's a
wooden fence in front of you and the only way you can see the parade
is through a small hole in the fence. As it goes by, you see bits and
pieces but can't see the beginning or the end of the parade. This
vision of the parade often describes our life. We have a limited
perspective. One day a woman named Martha (a friend of Jesus)
questioned Jesus because her brother had died. The family sent for
Jesus while Lazarus, her brother, was sick but Jesus did not come
until the fourth day. Lazarus died and it seemed all hope was gone.
"Lord, Martha said to Jesus, if you had been here, my brother would
not have died" (John 11:21). From her "knothole" view, Martha
concluded that Jesus was late and the opportunities for help were
gone. However, from this story of Lazarus we rise above the fence of
our limited perspective and see that God does have everything under
control. His ways are higher than ours, and he can turn negatives into
something good. After all, he is the one who proclaimed, "I am the
resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even
though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die"
(John 11:25). Lazarus rose from the dead.
As many of you know, I attended the funeral of my older brother
(Steve) this past weekend. Although he died young, we are comforted to
know that he is with Jesus. In January of 2006, my brother sent me the
following words to a song that blessed him.

“Following Jesus and Loving People”

 

Hello Friends and Family of Highway,

This Sunday, May 24th is Pentecost Sunday! We honor this special day because of the events from the Bible (Acts chapter two) where we read of the Holy Spirit being poured out from heaven on believers. Today, we live in exciting days because the Holy Spirit is present in our midst! Those who invite Jesus into their lives receive the Spirit and can also receive a special empowering from the Lord…referred to in the Book of Acts as the baptism in the Holy Spirit (some places speak of “filled with the Holy Spirit, or Spirit “poured” on them).

Where would we be without the Holy Spirit? He fills, comforts, strengthens, guides, corrects, teaches, reveals, and convicts…and more! To honor the Holy Spirit and the day of Pentecost, we invite you to join with us:

 

·        This Sunday morning at Highway (10:00am) the message will be from Galatians 5:16-26 on “Life in the Spirit…the Great Contest”

 

·        This Sunday night at Highway (6:00pm) we will present ourselves to the Holy Spirit in a time of worship and prayer called “Submerge”

 

 

·        Sunday morning May 31rst, Evangelist/Teacher Wes Daughenbaugh will be speaking at Highway in the morning (10:00am).

 

·        Sunday evening May 31rst (6:30pm) Pastor Wes will be speaking at Calvary Temple (3301 S. 20th St, South Philly) on the amazing baptism in the Holy Spirit. We will have opportunity to seek the Lord at the altar after the message. On a personal note, as a pastor, I have seen God use Pastor Wes to lead more people into the baptism of the Spirit (according to Acts) than anyone else I know. Other Churches in our section have been invited to this meeting, and our bus will leave Highway at 5:30pm. Please contact Pastor Mark if you will be riding the bus.

“Following Jesus and Loving People”

 

 

What can be more important than healthy relationships? Developing and maintaining healthy relationships is a core value at Highway and Resurrection Life Church. We understand that in order to enjoy others, we need to flourish in our relationship with God. This comes first. The Psalm writer Asaph said, “But as for me, it is good to be near God” (Psalm 73:28). How do we experience health and nearness to God?  He is perfect and we are so…not perfect. The starting place is admitting our need of God. I can only approach him because he made a way. Turning aside from the illusion of my own “goodness”, I can approach God in faith, believing that he is able to wash me in the blood of Jesus and allow me continual access to his very presence! My nearness is because of his goodness. This relationship, however, requires more than a salvation experience in the past. To be near to God requires us to deal with daily sins…to quickly admit faults and refuse to harbor disobedience in our spirit. As we receive love, acceptance, and encouragement from our relationship with God, we are then able to love others in a healthy and appropriate way. In fact, our nearness to God depends on how we treat others. If we love and treat others with dignity and respect, we experience a sweetness from the Holy Spirit. But, if we hurt and tear down the family of God, we create distance between our heart and God. Yesterday, I saw a man sitting on a bench at Logan Square. He was hollering at someone to his left, and when I looked more closely, I realized he was speaking into the air. I felt sorry for him and wondered about all the sick and unhealthy relationships of his past that contributed to his present condition. Without healthy relationships we are all sick and hopeless. May Jesus continue to give us his grace to live right with God and people.

Scholarship Reception

 

The Spring Garden Academy Scholarship Organization is investing in our children by providing scholarships for low-income, K-12 students to attend high-performing, quality, Christian schools in Philadelphia.

 

We invite you and your colleagues and family to a reception to learn more about how you (or your employer) can grow our scholarship fund through the PA state tax credit program. Some individuals may be able to give a donation that costs them very little of the actual value to the family receiving the scholarship.  For example:  Through the tax credit program, a $500 investment can yield close to $5000 for our fund.

 

We will also discuss how individuals can give directly to the fund. Check out the video link below to see the impact these scholarships make on the lives of families in our city: http://www.springgardenacademy.org/scholarship.html.

We will also discuss how individuals can give directly to the fund.

 

Final dessert reception will be held Friday, May 22nd. Inbox us or call 215-226-1000 for an invitation or information.

“Following Jesus and Loving People”

 

A lot of us still don’t get it. We think, “If I just have more money…then I can get the things I really want, and be happy.” However, the accumulation of stuff never fills our heart or satisfies our longing for meaning. I heard someone say this past week, “The older I get the more I realize my purpose in life is not in getting more things, but in serving and influencing others.” As we celebrate Mother’s Day, I realize that most Moms have a certain “instinct” about giving and serving. I will never forget a “snapshot” moment when I was around seven. I grew up with two brothers and food just seemed to disintegrate in the presence of three growing boys! Mom and I were in the kitchen together one afternoon and I opened the refrigerator door. One piece of yesterday’s dessert of apple pie was still on the lower shelf. I asked Mom if she had any of the pie yet and she said no, but insisted that I have the last piece. In my self-centered seven year old world this simple act left an impression on me. Mom would have enjoyed the pie, but she would rather have me enjoy it…even though I already had some. I am so grateful for a Mother who loved and followed Jesus. She knew the One who said, “For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many” (Mark 10:45). By all that he did, Jesus inspires us to die to our tendency to live for ourselves and to live a “higher life”…willingly loving and serving others. Even if you did not grow up with a godly mother, you can choose to be grateful. Jesus came to serve and you can make a lasting impact on the people around you by loving Jesus and giving of yourself. That is the real “stuff” of life!
