Anastasis: "Hope For The Broken-hearted" with Jarrid Wilson
Probably a word a majority of people wouldn’t know, recognize, or use. But to the New Testament Church, it meant everything. Anastasis means “resurrection.” It speaks of “rising up.” And for the new Church, it was where new life began and it was the power to live from each day.
The Apostle Paul said it best in Romans 8:11. “The Spirit of God, who raised Jesus from the dead, lives in you. And just as God raised Christ Jesus from the dead, he will give life to your mortal bodies by this same Spirit living within you.” The Spirit of God causes us to #RISEUP out of our sin and brokenness, out of inadequacy and weakness. The Spirit of God Spirit causes us to #RISEUP into a new and empowered life.
Starting Sunday February 18, Kfirst embarks on a 6-week series and season of refreshing called “Anastasis.” Our pastor, along with some guest speakers, want to bring a season of refreshing into our church community with a heart to see us #RISEUP into a new and empowered life.
For much of his life, Jarrid Wilson was controlled by suffocating depression, anxiety and thoughts of suicide. But his story doesn’t end there. In Love Is Oxygen, Jarrid points each of us toward the incredible adventure he now lives in: the deep, profound, transforming love of God. Because here’s the thing about breathing: It gives you life, and holding your breath won’t do you any good. There’s a rhythm to it. You breathe in, and you breathe out. God’s love isn’t meant to be held in; it’s something you get to exhale to the world around you.
