Insider Information

According to “insider information” is…

“…a non-public fact regarding the plans or condition of a publicly traded company that could provide a financial advantage when used to buy or sell shares of the company's stock. Insider information is typically gained by someone who is working within or close to a listed company.”

Movies about Wall Street have portrayed powerful and greedy people who have unfairly used insider information to make enormous sums of money. In reality though, in most cases they either abused the system or downright made illegal business transactions. So “insider information” has gotten a bad name in the minds of a lot of people.

Jesus, however, talked about some “insider information” that everyone needs to know. In his story about a field full of both wheat and weeds, Jesus talked clearly and forcefully about the reality of a day of judgment, a time in history when every single human being would be held accountable for the lives they lived on earth. It’s information that rocks our thinking, because much of the time most of us live for the moment without giving the future, much less a day when we’ll be held accountable for our actions, much thought at all.

The same Jesus who physically rose from the dead gives us insider information about the subject we fear most and know little about – life after death. If you’ve been “living for the day” but are feeling increasingly uncomfortable about the time when your days will come to an end, join us for our Sunday morning worship service. The inside information Jesus offers is spectacular.
