    Last Minute Pardon
    The power of the President of the United States to pardon a condemned criminal is great, but cannot compare to the power of Jesus Christ to grant the ultimate pardon resulting in forgiveness of sins and the gift of eternal life.  This is what Jesus did for the repentant thief on the cross next to him--an amazing last minute pardon.

    Series: Stand
    God calls each of us to a life of sacrifice, to stand even in the face of death.  For the first century church, this was considered a privilege to identify with the sufferings of Christ.  Most of us, however, view suffering for Christ as a strange phenomenon and we feel more like victims than victors. Acts 8:1-4; Hebrews 11:1-40

    Series: Stand
    Taking a stand against immorality in the culture is a difficult stand to take, especially when you are confronting the king or the president of a country.  You might even lose your head.  Such was the case for John the Baptist, whose ministry didn't end, in all likelihood, as he envisioned it would.  After all, he was the forerunner of the Messiah. Matthew 14:1-12; Mark 6:14-29

    STAND: Risking All
    Series: Stand
    When Jesus invited us to take up our cross and follow Him, He was not calling us to a life of ease and comfort, but to a life of purpose, adventure and the highest risk--our very lives.  Part of that calling involves using whatever position or station in life that we have been given to influence others for what is good and right and for the glory of God.
