Celebrating the Season of Our Savior

We at United Faith Church, rejoice in the opportunity we have to reflect on the life, death, and resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ during this special season. As we do, we focus not only on the powerful work done on the cross on our behalf 2,000 years ago, but on the promise of that same power at work in us and through us still today.

United Faith Church invites you to join us as we celebrate this season and we encourage
you to read more below about the heart and hope of each of the services held.

The Season of Our Passover

In the Old Testament, God declared that every firstborn in Egypt would die (Exodus 12:4) in order to rescue His people from slavery. But God passed over the Israelites’ homes, covered by the blood of a sacrificial lamb, to deliver them from their enemy. They were set free to worship their God.

Still today, we have an enemy that tries to prevent us from living lives of worship to our God. But praise be to God who, through the powerful blood of the Lamb – our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ – declares that all power of sin and every scheme of the enemy must pass us by as we cling to Him!! (1 Corinthians 5:7, Acts 4:12, Romans 6:6-7)

Testimony

Today’s message is so beautiful, it has prepared my heart to go after God all the more just because He is so worthy and beautiful! Pastor Janeth really brought this passage to life in Mark 14:3.

v3 . “While He was in Bethany, reclining at the table in the home of Simon the Leper, a woman came with an alabaster jar of very expensive perfume, made of pure nard. She broke the jar and poured the perfume on His head.”

Let our lives be the very jars broken before the Lord in our everyday lives, day and night, at home, at work, and every affair of our days. Let our lives be poured out in true worship (Spirit and truth) at Church when we meet together.  I pray that our worship reaches our Lord the way that this woman’s perfume reached Jesus. This is us, His Church as Pastor preached, giving up everything else just to be at His feet ready to do His will.

Palm Sunday

Palm Sunday commemorates the triumphal entry of Jesus into Jerusalem to celebrate the Passover. Shouting “Hosanna to the Son of David” and “Blessed is he who comes in the Name of the Lord”, the crowd sought to honor Jesus as their long-awaited King and Messiah, a prophecy declared hundreds of years earlier in the book of Zechariah. (John 12:13, Psalm 118:25-26, Zechariah 9:9)

However, as history reminds us, their praise was short-lived. Where the Jews looked for Jesus to establish a kingdom for them politically, He came to establish His kingdom spiritually. We at United Faith Church rejoice in the coming of the Lord’s kingdom in us, His triumphal entry in our every circumstance and His rightful place as King in our hearts – not for a moment, but for a lifetime. (John 18:36, Luke 17:21)

Testimony

Hosanna in the highest… This resounds in my heart everyday. Jesus came to save me, not just from the consequences of my sin but to His Kingdom. Though I stumble along the way, I’ll always come back to this – God’s plan. He sent his Son to deliver me from slavery to royalty.… not just from myself but to Himself… Hallelujah! What good is it, to gain the world and lose your soul? (Luke 9:25)

Praise God who opens my eyes to see the futility of what the world has to offer. Praise God who opens my eyes to His Kingdom everlasting!

Matthew 21:9 – The crowds going ahead of him, and those who followed, were shouting, “Hosanna to the son of David; Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord; Hosanna in the highest!”

All glory to our King, Jesus!

The Last Supper

After Palm Sunday and during the Feast of Unleavened Bread, Jesus and the disciples met together for what became the Last Supper. It was a meal to celebrate the Passover, but became an opportunity for the Lord to teach and prepare His disciples for what would come – “the hour had come for him to leave this world and go to the Father” (John 13:1).

The Last Supper is an incredible display of the love of the Lord Jesus Christ for those that are His. It is at the Last Supper where, despite knowing that He would be betrayed and abandoned, He teaches the disciples how His body would be broken for them and then washes their feet. In everything, the Lord taught them that those who want to be great in the eyes of God must serve one another in love and in humility, unashamed at the example of Christ and joyfully responding to the call to be a servant of the Lord. (John 13)

In the same way, our Pastors at United Faith Church teach us to exemplify this same love for God and for one another. We rejoice in the hope that we might be transformed to reflect this same love and the very likeness of Christ in our lives (2 Corinthians 3:18).

Testimony

On Thursday night the last supper was such a special night and I have never seen the washing of the disciples feet as I did that night. Jesus came on this earth and showed the greatest example of humility,love,laying down of one’s life, what a true servant looks like.

When Pastor Janeth was speaking about the basin that Jesus used to wash his disciples feet with and how it is the Good News, the word of God, it touched my heart because I have never seen or heard it that way, I never understood what that really meant. It’s only the Holy Spirit who can bring that revelation and brings illumination of the word of God.

We are called to wash one another with his word, by truth, and are called to love and serve just as Jesus Christ did. What a beautiful passage John 13 is and I will never see it the same way again. Thank you Lord that you are opening up my eyes and ears to the revelation of your word in such a new way.

After that, he poured water into a basin and began to wash his disciples feet, drying them with the towel that was wrapped around him. He came to Simon Peter, who said to him “Lord, are you going to wash my feet?”
Jesus replied, “You do not realize now what I ‘am doing, but later you will understand.” – John 13:5-7

Jesus is such a teacher and throughout the scriptures he continuously is showing me how to be a true disciple and to follow him!!

Good Friday

On Good Friday we remember that Jesus willingly, for the joy set before Him, suffered and died as the ultimate sacrifice for our sins and bore the full wrath of God intended for us (Romans 6:23, Hebrews 12:2, Hebrews 10:3,10,12-14). While Good Friday is a day to reflect on the price that the Lord Jesus Christ paid for us, it also marks the height of God’s plan to save us from our sin.

We know that without seeing the true cost of our sin and the depth of our wickedness, we could never truly understand the amazing gift of the Lord Jesus Christ on the cross. It is with that understanding and the gratitude it births, that we at United Faith Church rejoice in the cross, and our Savior who endured it, because we know that without Christ taking the wrath we deserved, we would have no hope for the forgiveness and salvation we need.

Resurrection Sunday

Resurrection Sunday is the celebration of our Lord Jesus’ resurrection from the dead through which He defeated hell, death, and the grave once and for all and opened the way for us to be united with Him (Revelation 1:18, Romans 6:5). Where Good Friday reminds us of the cost paid for our sin, Resurrection Sunday testifies to the indestructible life of Christ, His power and authority, our living hope in Him, and our justification before God (Hebrews 7:16, 1 Peter 1:3, Romans 4:25).

Resurrection Sunday is the ultimate reflection of the indisputable supremacy of Jesus Christ, for whom even death could not hold; how great is our Lord and our Messiah!!! (Colossians 1:18, Acts 2:24) United Faith Church joins with those who call on the Name of the Lord in rejoicing in the victory of our God, the forgiveness of our sins through faith in Him, and our enduring hope in the inheritance kept in heaven for us (1 Corinthians 15:55-57, 1 Peter 1:4). Hallelujah!
