Word of Life Church began holding services in September of 2008 in northwest Lincoln. Our mission is to reach out to those who desire to strengthen their faith and grow spiritually through the Good News, the Word of Life. There is a place for everyone at Word of Life. Whether you have questions and are curious about God or want to be part of a growing church, you are welcome. Whether you want to come casual or dress up, you will fit in.
“Put All Your Anxieties on Him” – 1 Peter 5:7
What was it like to sit, wait, think and mourn for the one who loved you in a way that was unmatched? This most caring, miracle-performing, truth-speaking brother, son and friend who was betrayed, falsely accused, beaten and savagely humiliated. Then He was hung, strangled by the nailing of His stretched body on the Roman torture invention of the cross. Some had faithfully accompanied and watched Him die, others had abandoned him and now sat in their shame and grief as only a deserter knows. All ached with the loss of their Messiah.
Talk about anxiety. Did they try to console each other, give each other support? How could they but yet out of this dark pit they would be lifted up by the news that He lives. Christ is risen!
Question for Easter: Who was Salome?
Answer: Salome was one of the faithful women who was present at the crucifixion of Jesus, His burial and at the empty tomb after the resurrection of Jesus. She was the mother of James and John and most Biblical scholars believe she was the sister of Mary, the mother of Jesus.
