AMAZING GRACE

On the night Jesus was betrayed, He told His disciples what was going to happen. He let them know that He would be delivered up... and they would all fall away from Him.

The disciples could not believe their ears. If Jesus were to be arrested and in need, no way would they ever desert Him! Why Peter kept saying repeatedly, "Even if I have to die with You, I will not deny You! With You, I am ready to go to prison and to death!"

Of course, you know the story. Peter did not live up to his commitment. When push came to shove, he succumbed to the pressure and the fear of man. He vehemently denied three times that he even knew Jesus, even cursing and swearing on the last denial to convince his audience. How horrible he felt when the Lord turned and looked at him with a look of wounded love... and then the cock crowed. The Bible says that Peter "went out and wept bitterly."

CAN YOU RELATE?

I can so relate to Peter, can you? There have been so many times that I have promised the Lord this, that, and the other... only to fail miserably and fall woefully short of my commitments. In all my years as a Christian, I have surely experienced the guilt and bitter tears associated with denying Jesus through my attitudes, actions and reactions.

Maybe you have made a huge mess of your life by disobeying and denying God. Maybe you have trashed your marriage, or your family, or your purity, or your good name by your sins and selfishness. What do you do when it seems like you have sinned too greatly for even God to forgive?

No doubt that is EXACTLY how Peter felt. He denied even knowing the Lord in the Lord's greatest hour of need. What a HUGE sin!

THERE IS HOPE FOR YOU!

One of the greatest lines in all the Bible was delivered by the angel at the empty tomb, "But go, tell His disciples and Peter, 'He is going before you into Galilee; there you will see Him, just as He said to you'" (Mk 16:7). Peter felt so worthless and rejected because of what he did, yet God was not through with him. The Lord singles him out that resurrection morning to let Peter know that He still loved him and still had a plan for him.

The same is true for you! No matter what you may have done in your life, the cross and empty tomb shout from the highest mountain, "You can be forgiven!" Though you may have failed miserably, you do not have to languish in that failure. Just like Peter, God wants you to get up and get back in the game. You are NOT destined to be a second class Christian. You can be restored and made new.

BE ENCOURAGED

Take courage, my friend. The Lord still loves you. He still has a wonderful plan for your life. His blood is still able to cleanse the worst of sins. That is the story of Easter - you can receive a new life and a new start with the Lord.

Why not thank Him right now for his AMAZING GRACE! Put your life in His hands and let the resurrected Christ arise in you.

Love,

Pastor Jeff Schreve,

About Dr. Jeff Schreve

Jeff's life has been radically changed by Jesus Christ.
Growing up in a church-going home, Jeff learned a lot about God, but he did not know God. He believed in Jesus in the same way he believed in George Washington: he knew Jesus was real, but had not personally met Him. All this changed one night after a Young Life meeting when he was alone in his bedroom. There Jeff saw his need for Christ and His forgiveness and surrendered his life to Jesus.

As a student at the University of Texas, Jeff grew in his Christian life. He graduated with a degree in business and moved back home to Houston, Texas to start a career in business. There he met his future wife, Debbie, at a single's group meeting at Champion Forest Baptist Church. They were married in 1986 and have been blessed with a wonderful relationship and three awesome daughters and two beautiful grandchildren.

A New Direction
After spending 13 years as a chemical salesman, God called Dr. Schreve to preach. He left his secure position and moved his family to North Carolina to attend Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. It was a scary and difficult move to make ... but it was one of the best decisions they have ever made. One year later, God called them to serve on staff at Champion Forest Baptist Church. In 2000, he completed his Master of Divinity degree graduating from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. He graduated with a Doctor of Ministry degree in 2014 from Southeastern Seminary.

Jeff Schreve has been the senior Pastor of First Baptist Texarkana in 2003, a growing and exciting church with 4500+ members.
