On March 25, Pastor Jim preaches on John 19:38-42.
The late, great, preaching professor Fred Craddock once said, “The greatest temptation of the church is the temptation to be ineffective.” How tempting it is to play it safe, to stay put, to keep quiet. This week we will think together about two very wealthy and religious men: Joseph of Arimathea and Nicodemus. They tried to hide their faith in Jesus. It was only after his death that they stood up to be counted. What would it take for you and me to do the same?
