Ever wanted to be one in a million?

(Mark Miller & I have been friends for 26 years.  He pastored at Oakridge Baptist Church in Portland Tx.  and I Pastored 1st Baptist Church of Portland Tx.  Recently Mark resigned his church to become a Chaplain for the Louise Allan Foundation.  I want to share with you a recent email article that he wrote)

Ever wanted to be one in a million?  Well, you can be.  One million people are coming to Texas this month to witness a rare solar eclipse on Monday, April 8th.  And if you are in San Antonio at 1:35 pm, you can join the crowd seeking its direct path.  Still want to be one in a million?  Truth is, for those living in the Coastal Bend, you will see most of the eclipse, anyhow.  And the second truth is, even if you do not witness the eclipse, you are still one in a million (actually one in 8 billion).

This past easter billions of Believers throughout the world once again celebrated the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus.  And those who witnessed His crucifixion firsthand, felt the effects of a three-hour eclipse.  “At noon, darkness came over the whole land until three in the afternoon.” Three hours of darkness, in the brightest part of the day.

A solar eclipse occurs when the sun, moon and earth are almost perfectly aligned.  The shadow of the moon covers a portion of the earth.  The next solar eclipse will occur in just over 20 years on August 23, 2044.  But the darkness that occurred for three hours that Friday when Jesus died for our sins was unique.  Accompanied by an earthquake, it changed the lives of the soldiers who watched.  “The officer and the soldiers guarding Jesus felt the earthquake and saw everything else that happened.  They were frightened and said, “This man really was God’s Son!”

Until that moment, they were in the dark.  Not for four minutes, or three hours, but for their entire adult lives.  Yet, the crucifixion of Jesus opened their eyes.  He really was who He said He was.

And indeed, He is.  – Mark Miller (this was written before Easter so I had to change this article to show after Easter-CH)

P.S. See you this afternoon as we have Movie Outreach & Pizza.  (I will bring some Rolaids)
