What Would Jesus Undo?
People who belong to the Christian church and people who critique the Christian church often ask the same question for two different reasons: What Would Jesus Do? But there’s a more important question we should be asking. South Bay Bible Church, 578 Montauk Highway, East Moriches, is pleased to announce the start of What Would Jesus Undo? on Sunday, April 9, at 9:00 and 11:00 a.m. Join us in person or online at southbaychurchli.org/livestream, Facebook Live, or YouTube.
“While Jesus did plenty of kind and powerful deeds, they are not an end unto themselves,” said Matt Horne, lead pastor. “Our hope and future rests, not only in what Jesus has done, but what he has, consequently, left undone.”
Whether you consider yourself a church person or not, you’re invited to join us for this three-part series, What Would Jesus Undo?, as Pastor Matt shows how Jesus turned the world upside down in just three days.
1. A Heavy Stone (Mark 16:1-8; Romans 5:12-21; 1 Corinthians 15) – April 9: When Jesus’ disciples were headed to the tomb to anoint his dead body, they worried about the stone being too heavy of a barrier to move in order to get to him. Like the stone, there is a large barrier between us and Jesus as well. However, we believe that the same Jesus who rolled that heavy stone away has also removed our stumbling block too.
2. Climbing the Ladder (Ephesians 2:1-10; Titus 3:4-7) – April 16: Almost every religion in the world has some version of a good or bad afterlife, and all that’s required for a good ending is that you are a “good” person. To be as good of a person as possible, we fill our bookshelves with self-help manuals, but no motivational script is going to make us good enough. That’s why Jesus flipped the entire religious process over on its head.
3. My Brother’s Keeper (Ephesians 2:11-22; Colossians 3:5-15) – April 23: Although many attribute it to Abraham Lincoln, it was actually Jesus who stated, “A house divided against itself cannot stand.” The fact of the matter is societies are ruined by relational strife. That’s why Jesus not only reconciled us to God, but he also made a way for us to be reconciled to each other.
