Call To Die

Then [Jesus] said to them all, "If anyone wants to come with Me, he must deny himself, take up his cross daily, and follow Me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life because of Me will save it. (Luke 9:23-24, HCSB)

Mitch Chase: "The Genesis of Resurrection Hope"

Earlier this month, Mitch Chase-my friend and pastor-provided a link to his JETS article on the resurrection hope, as found in the book of Genesis. To any pastor or teacher who may be reading this: if you ever plan to preach/teach the book of Genesis, you will certainly benefit from reading this article. Based on the teaching of Christ and His Apostle, as well as a close examination of the Genesis text itself, Mitch demonstrates how the gospel message (the good news of death-overcoming life through the Promised One) is found from the beginning of Scripture. Say that you have occasion to preach or teach Genesis expositionally (section-by-section): by pointing to a variety of passages in Genesis that provide valid glimpses of resurrection hope, Mitch helps the pastor/teacher to demonstrate how the text is constantly pointing forward to the One who is "the Resurrection and the Life" (John 11:25).

Dear friend (whoever may be reading this): do yourself a favor and read "The Genesis of Resurrection Hope" found HERE.
