What’s So Good About
Being Half Alive?


 Narrow Minded!
A script for church or ministry presentation.




by Dee Wieninger

As I scrolled through Facebook this week and kept seeing verse after verse and post after post of Jesus and His love, some of which were mine, I had a fleeting thought...

He's not just an another story! 

Have you heard the Easter story of Christ so many times that it's quite possibly becoming a fairy tale? When I was a kid and found out Santa Clause wasn't real, for whatever reason, I lumped the baby Jesus into these Christmas fairy tales and assumed He wasn't real either. It wasn't till many years later that I learned differently.

Scrolling through all these loving posts, placed for the purpose of sharing His great truths, they started reminding me of the "Santa Clause is coming to town" stories, "making a list and checking it twice" or "being good or you'll find coal in your stocking" or "he won't come until you go to sleep"; all those quips and quotes we now dismiss because we know better! The difference between the Santa stories and those of Christ is that His are true, offering an amazing, powerful, and glorious relationship with the God of all creation!! But suddenly, for a moment, being placed in such a venue it became so easy to scroll right past them, dismissing them as easily as Santa Clause. I found myself going back and reading posts or watching pertinent videos, I felt I could trust, just because I never want to ignore the Word of God.

This new writing will be placed on my web site and ultimately placed on Facebook because isn't that what it's all about; sharing our status, what's on our minds and what's important to us? The topic most on my heart and mind is my God and what He has done for me!

This Easter take time to sit in a quite place and recapture the greatest truth that has ever been passed down through the ages; that YOU, mercifully, have had the amazing privilege of hearing...even on Facebook!!! Consider the true message of every story, sermon, verse, stanza, and testimony you've ever heard until they become "Christ in you"! I promise, you will fall in love and you will live happily ever and for all eternity!


He is Risen...He is Risen indeed!


Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation; 2 Corinthians 5:17-18




Sometimes Jesus Has

to Wait Till You're

Good and Dead!
