Matsa Moments - Pastor Mike

The Hebrew word “Matsa” means to: find, meet, discover, encounter. It is used in Deuteronomy 4:29 where the Lord says, "But from there you will seek the LORD your God, and you will find Him if you seek Him with all your heart and with all your soul.” Throughout Scripture, there is an invitation from God to find Him; He actually rewards those who diligently seek Him (Heb. 11:6). To see God we must be looking for Him.

This blog is a journal of finding God - discovering who He is; learning more about His character and attributes, as I encounter Him in in His Word and world around me. These posts are theological reflections emerging out of a desire to understand how the Creator interacts with us, His creatures. Hopefully, through these you will see how the Ever-present Holy One also invites you to know Him more.

  • Matthew 27:

    50 And when Jesus had cried out again in a loud voice, he gave up his spirit.

    51 At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. The earth shook, the rocks split 52 and the tombs broke open. The bodies of many holy people who had died were raised to life.53 They came out of the tombs after Jesus’ resurrection and went into the holy city and appeared to many people.

    54 When the centurion and those with him who were guarding Jesus saw the earthquake and all that had happened, they were terrified, and exclaimed, “Surely he was the Son of God!”

    "God made HIM who had no sin to be sin for US, so that in HIM WE might become the righteousness of God."

    Hello Redeemed of God! 

    It is finished! Sin has been atoned for! The ransom has been paid! The wrath of God has been satisfied! The great exchange has happened!

    Redemption - Reconciliation - Righteousness - Restoration 

    Sin no longer has control over us. We are forgiven and free from our past - It is a new beginning!

    OH what glorious truths the Cross of Jesus has for us! What a glorious thing our Saviour has done for us!

    All of this because GOD SO LOVED  US !!!

    Take time to remember - I strongly encourage all of us to spend time as a family reflecting on the meaning and the power of the cross. Listen to your favorite "cross" songs, and share communion (the Lord's supper) together. Confess your sins one to another, and forgive each other. Make this Good Friday the most meaningful ever. Here's a couple of songs (with great words) to get you going.
