Have you ever been the first one to arrive at a party? You show up, ready to have fun, and it turns out that everyone else is running late.

It’s uncomfortable waiting around for something you were expecting to happen at a certain time. Sometimes, it can feel like God is the one late to the party, and we begin to wonder if he’ll ever show up. Waiting on God can be difficult, but it’s worth it because when he does show up, he begins to change your life in ways you’ve never imagined.

As a church, we’ve been on a seven-week journey into the “I am” statements that Jesus makes in the Gospel of John. Through this series, we’ve learned that Jesus is the bread of life, the good shepherd, the door, the way, the truth and the life, the vine, and the light of the world. This Easter Sunday, Pastor Rich Wilkerson Jr. completed the series with a message on Jesus’ final “I am” statement as being The Resurrection and The Life.
