We’ve all seen the monumental stone heads of the famous half buried statues on Easter Island. But have you ever seen them move? It seems impossible, doesn’t it? Yet clearly they didn’t arrive at their final destinations by magic. So how did they get there?

As it turns out, they got there by walking.

Donald Carter was ordering dinner at a fast-food restaurant when he noticed that the young woman taking his order looked exhausted. He asked her if anything was wrong, and she told him she was working double shifts to pay for nursing school. However, it was clear from the desperation in her voice that it was a real struggle. So Donald decided to do something about it. He created a GoFundMe page, and within a few days people from around the world had raised the $7,000 that she needed. What stood out to me about this story was the impact a single act of kindness can have in the world.

I want to tell you about a concert Johnny Cash gave in 1969. It was like any other he’d participated in except for one major difference – this time he wasn’t playing in an auditorium filled with kids from the suburbs.

One of the greatest moments in Olympic history belongs to a British sprinter named Derek Redmond. Despite smashing national records and winning gold medals in the World Championships and Commonwealth Games, Derek faced setback after setback due to injury. In the 1988 Olympics, he was even forced to withdraw just ten minutes before his race due to an injured Achilles tendon. So when he stepped onto the track for the 400 meters in Barcelona in 1992, he did so with one goal: he had to win a medal. At first, it seemed like that’s exactly what was going to happen.

Have you ever felt like you woke up on the wrong day? Maybe it was a day where everything around you seemed to be going wrong, and you wished you could just press fast-forward until the sun went down. It can be easy to feel this way. We all have bad days sometimes. But the next time you do, I want you to pause and ask yourself something. Whatever day that day is, ask yourself: “Will there ever be another one like this?” The answer, of course, is no. Time moves on, and we move on with it. The sun sets, and the page is turned. We don’t get any do-overs.

We’ve all seen the famous poster that says “Keep Calm and Carry On.” It was released by the British government in 1939 to encourage the city of London during the Nazis' terrifying bombings. Since then it has been repurposed countless times to fit any variety of messages, everything from “Keep Calm and Have A Cookie” to “Keep Calm and Use The Force.” Why is this idea so universally resonant? Because human beings are always afraid of something! In fact, the fear centers in our brains are a big reason our earliest ancestors survived on a tough and inhospitable planet.

I can still remember the first time I saw Elvis on TV. It was instantly clear why he would go on to be crowned the “King of Rock N Roll.” But just as quickly as he’d taken the world by storm, Elvis had passed away.

Years after his untimely death, rumors began to surface – the King was still alive, living down in Mexico with Jim Morrison and Janis Joplin. Recently, I read a poll that stated almost 10% of Americans believe Elvis is still alive! When I heard that, I started thinking about another King. Not the “King of Rock N Roll” – but the “King of Kings.”

Have you ever had to describe someone you know, and struggled to find the right words? I certainly have, and I know I’m not alone. We all have those friends or acquaintances who defy easy description. But Jesus wasn’t like that. He was always clear and bold in his answers to the question, “Who are you?” One of my favorites is this answer he gives in John – “Jesus told him, ‘I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me’” (John 14:6 NLT).

“Love means never having to say you’re sorry,” is a very famous line from the film LOVE STORY, but it’s also dead wrong. I think the opposite is true: that love means actually being able to say that you’re sorry. As Christians, we all have an awareness that while we’re assured of our eternal salvation in Christ, we continue to live in a fallen world and we don’t yet fully partake in the perfection of the Trinity. A sinful nature still has a pull on us, and we will definitely hurt and offend those closest to us.

During Jesus’s earthly ministry, he attracted a lot of attention from important people. One of the most memorable was Nicodemus, a member of the Sanhedrin, the same group of men who, in alliance with the Romans, eventually had Jesus crucified. But Nicodemus had a very different relationship with our savior – one which totally transformed him. When he first met with Jesus, Nicodemus insisted they do so at night. Why? Because he had a lot to lose by being seen with this man whose teaching stood so strongly at odds with the teachings of his peers. He was ashamed to be seen with him.
