Our Daily Bread
In the wake of the shooting at an elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut, many people have felt strongly compelled to help. Some donated blood for the injured, some provided free lunches and coffee at their restaurants for workers. Others wrote letters of comfort or just gave hugs. Some sent gifts of money and teddy bears for the children; others offered counseling. People found ways to serve according to their personalities, abilities, and resources.Posted: April 17, 2014, 1:00 am

1 Corinthians 15:12-26
Are there any two more devastating words than no hope? No hope beyond a devastating diagnosis, no hope when we lose our job, no hope when our loved one dies, and ultimately no hope when we face our own mortality?
At some point in our lives, we will all endure the kind of loss that will knock us off our feet and tempt us to abandon hope. And what if there is no resurrection? Then our lack of hope applies not just to this life but to eternity. And if that's the case, then there's nothing left in life but to eat, drink, and live it up.
When the Presence of Hope Arose
Mon - Fri 9pm.This is just religious jealousy by this religious council, the Sanhedrin Council, against this man who has come along, stirring up the people, getting a lot of followers, getting people excited and teaching something, which is in direct conflict with what the Sanhedrin Council stood for. It is out of envy, out of jealousy.

Mon/Wed/Sat 11pm3300 Dana Pankey Classic: (Self-reliance, Indifference toward God) Born in 1901, Dana, the son of the largest landowner/rancher in New Mexico, grew up around old-time cowboys and picked up their coarse language and attitudes. Thinking he could gain favor with God by being good, he ignored God and tried living a good life. When he encountered an old cowboy singing a Gospel song on a street corner, he placed his faith in Christ. Involved in a letter writing ministry to shut-ins, he suffered several strokes, able to type with only one finger, but continued his ministry.
The Story Teller
Sat 3pm. and Sun 12pm."... and when I woke up, I was sick. Not only from what I had drank that previous night, but the burden of sin was heavy upon me. And not only that but, I was so sick I knew if I died at that moment, I wasn't prepared to meet God."
- CHILDREN’S PROGRAMS
Mon - Sat 7:30am & 7:30pmOn clean-up day at church, Craig lingered behind while other kids went out to rake and clean the yard. I sure don't feel like helping with that, he thought. As he hesitated, the secretary came from the office with a box of bulletins.
"Is someone going to fold these?" the secretary asked pleasantly.
"I will," Craig said quickly. He began folding the bulletins, but he felt guilty for not helping with the harder work. Soon he finished the job. He glanced at the kids still busy outdoors, then left by a side door, ignoring his guilty conscience.
When Craig got home, his little brother met him at the door. "Hey, Cody, you said you'd help me with some of my work since I spent so much time helping you with your math," said Craig. "I want you to clean out my closet."
Cody shook his head. "I already helped you. I dumped your trash, so I've done enough," he declared triumphantly.
Craig scowled. "The waste basket wasn't even full," he complained.
"Well, taking out the trash was easier," replied Cody, "so that's what I did."
Mom entered the room before Craig could respond. "How did your work at church go?" she asked. "Your teacher asked you kids to rake the lawn, didn't he?Is that done already?"
"I . . . ah . . . I folded bulletins instead," Craig replied. "I got done early."
"You don't think you should go back and help finish raking?" Mom asked. Craig shrugged. "Sounds like you took the easy route," Mom said. She put her arm around Craig's shoulder. "Folding bulletins is serving God, so that's fine," she added, "unless . . . unless raking the yard is what you felt God really wanted you to do."
Craig sighed. "I didn't like it that Cody took the easy route when he dumped my trash," he admitted. "Do you think God feels that way, too?"
"Talk to Him about it. He's very forgiving," said Mom. "And when your class helps next week, why don't you volunteer to help with any and all the jobs?"
Feeling relieved, Craig nodded. "Okay," he agreed.
Cody had been listening to the discussion. "Does that mean I have to clean Craig's closet, too?" he asked with a frown. "No way!"
Mom and Craig laughed together. "Only if you feel guilty," Craig suggested.
How About You?
Do you choose to serve God only when tasks seem easy or fun? Anything you do for the Lord--even the easy tasks--is a way of serving Him. But don't just choose the easy route. Be willing to do anything you believe God wants you to do, whether easy or hard. If a job seems too overwhelming, perhaps you can enlist others to help. Then do your work with enthusiasm and cheerfulness. God's Word encourages you not to be weary of doing good, for you will reap a reward.
Today's Key Verse:
(Be) not lagging in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord.
Today's Key Thought:
Cheerfully do the tasks God gives
Paws & Tales
Tue 4pm.Episode Summary:
Jesus died to pay for our sins, but why is his resurrection from the dead so important? You’re invited to experience how our Savior conquered sin, death, and Satan for us all on this week’s Kids Corner.
Have you ever met someone who said, “I think that Jesus was a real person—even a man of God, but there’s no way he rose from the dead. That’s just too crazy to believe.” Have you ever been challenged that it is nonsense to believe Jesus is alive? Do you have a reply?
Jesus did rise from the dead. Let’s look at the evidence. Jesus spent 40 days after his resurrection talking to people. Jesus physically appeared to Mary Magdalene, the two disciples walking to Emmaus, 10 of the disciples, and Thomas (who refused to believe Jesus was alive until he could physically see Jesus’ wounds). Paul wrote that Jesus appeared to more than 500 fellow Christians—many of whom were still alive to testify. (I Corinthians 15:6) More than 500 witnesses said Jesus was indeed alive!
James was the half-brother of Jesus. He did not believe in Jesus as anyone’s savior….until Jesus appeared to him. James then became a major leader of the Christian church. Paul hated everything to do with Jesus; he hunted Christians down….until he met Jesus. For the rest of his life, Paul traveled the world and wrote letters—proclaiming Jesus is alive!
The disciples were so afraid the night Jesus was arrested, they ran. They weren’t scholars, they weren’t brave, they weren’t bold at all….until after Jesus rose. For the rest of their lives, they boldly proclaimed the good news of Jesus’ salvation to everyone. Only a truly living Jesus could inspire such a radical transformation in these men!
It’s not crazy to believe that Jesus died on the cross and rose again on the third day. It’s very logical to look at the evidence and decide that Jesus did rise from the grave. But Jesus doesn’t just want us to know that he is alive; Jesus wants our hearts, our lives, our love, all of us! Jesus died to pay for our sins. When he rose from the dead, he conquered sin and death—for us! Hallelujah, Jesus is alive!
This verse comes from Paul’s defense of the resurrection in 1 Corinthians 15. Here Paul says that the resurrection of Jesus from the dead is of “first importance” in his message to the Corinthians. He says, “For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ dies for our sins according to the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures, and that he appeared to Peter, and then to the Twelve.” Paul goes on to list others to whom Jesus appeared, all proof that this was not a figment of his, or anyone else’s imagination.
Many have tried to explain away the resurrection of Jesus. But the resurrection is an essential part God’s rescue plan for us. Jesus died, but he didn’t stay in the grave. Jesus came out of the grave a risen Lord. This is essential to our faith, hope, and salvation.
