This last week was an exciting time at HRock Church! On Resurrection Sunday, we had an amazing Easter production called “Redeemed” performed on stage during both services. Then in the latter half of the week, we hosted our annual Revival Alliance Conference 2015, as my good friends—Bill & Beni Johnson​, Georgian & Winnie Banov, John Arnott, Randy Clark and Rolland Baker—gathered together to see God’s Kingdom come in Pasadena, Calif.!

On Easter Sunday, many were moved by the performance of “Redeemed.” I am proud to say that my son, Gabriel, wrote and directed the entire play! The production was powerful and struck the chords of many hearts in the auditorium—we saw more than 50 people receive salvation that morning!

The theme of the message given that day—Redeemed—is a term used in Scripture, but it originated as a trade word. To redeem something meant to buy it. Through His sacrifice and death, Jesus bought us with His life. He also broke every curse off our lives in His victorious resurrection!

The emotion in Jesus’ death on the cross is gripping!


Galatians 3:13 declares, “Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us.” The apostle Paul explains that Jesus Christ redeemed us so that everyone who believes in Him would receive God’s blessings and His promised Holy Spirit (Gal. 3:14).

Jesus loves you with an everlasting love! 

If you were moved by the show, please share the video with your friends and let Christ’s love flow to others!

In my blog next week, I’ll be sharing some stories and highlights from the Revival Alliance Conference, so stay tuned!
