He Is Risen! Confidence Restored

April Fool's Day and Easter coincide for the first time since 1956. Some think Christians are fools for believing Jesus rose from the dead. We're no fools, but it's neither stretch nor slight to think his resurrection was a masterful prank.

The one they had thought they could kill and get rid of rejected hell. His rising mocks the killers who spat on him, jammed a crown on his head, and drove nails through his hands and feet. His rising mocks Satan who offered him the kingdom of this world, which Jesus declined. His resurrection overcomes the curse of this world and mocks the consequence of sin as he tramples over death by death.

Wouldn't you have loved to see Satan's face the moment he realized the scheme of hell didn't work. Easter is the greatest April Fool's reveal ever.

Levi Matteson delivers an Easter message on this Resurrection Sunday, April 1, 2018.

Yoopers are aware of the piles of tailings and stamp sand left over from the copper mines. The byproducts of mining contains lead and other toxic heavy metals. We remember with fondness the copper boom, while we also acknowledge the scar it left on our land.

Death and suffering are the byproducts of life in a fallen world. There is tension between focusing on the blessings in this world to the extent that we ignore the reality of suffering and, on the other hand, dwelling so much in the suffering that we miss out on the joy of life.

Pastor Travis continues in the sermon series "The Luge: The Ride of Your Life" showing us that we can have Confidence in the Corners knowing that we have a God who is with us in our suffering. An abundant life is not a promise to avoid suffering, but an assurance that life is better with God.

God does not care about your money. He owns everything. He makes Bill Gates' wealth look like lunch money. He cares about your heart, and Jesus tells us that money is a locator of our hearts. He didn't say that where your heart is there will your money be also. He said where your treasure is, there your heart will be.

Pastor Levi continues in our sermon series "Got it. What's Next" encouraging us to live a generous life out of appreciation for what God has given us for the benefit of our heart.

The Scripture text is Matthew 6:19-24. This is a podcast of Evangel Church, Houghton, Michigan, on February 18, 2018.

Why are Christians sometimes afraid to share our faith? Are we afraid of how we're perceived? A study found that college kids view Christians as anti-homosexual, judgmental, and hypocritical. Those were the big three, closely followed by too old-fashioned, too involved in politics, out of touch with reality, insensitive to others, boring, not accepting of others' faith, and downright confusing.

We can dismiss this, saying, "These people don't understand it. They don't understand who Jesus is. And we can leave that over there and do our own thing."

Or, we can do something else.

Pastor Levi continues in our sermon series "Got it. What's Next," engaging with Scripture on that question, to see how Jesus would speak into that question of how people view Christians.

The Scripture text is Luke 15. This is a podcast of Evangel Church, Houghton, Michigan, on February 11, 2018.

Do you have a weird uncle in your family? He might not be one you'd hang out with, but he's still family. Paul refers to Christians as brothers and sisters for a reason. We all have our differences, but we are part of a family.

Pastor Travis makes a strong case for Life Groups as we continue in our sermon series "Got it. What's Next." Part of living out our faith is living in community with others, not just for what we get out of it but for how we help others.

The Scripture text is Galatians 6:1-2. This is a podcast of Evangel Baptist Church, Houghton, Michigan, on January 28, 2018.
