A WORD FROM PASTOR!

 

                      Resurrection Greetings!

 

Power. Just the word seems, well… powerful!

As we come to the beautiful time of year called “Easter” or, as some may refer to it, “Resurrection Sunday,” I want to remind you that the same power that raised Christ from the dead is available to us today.

The Bible tells us in Romans 8:11 (NKJV) 11 But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.

I believe this life given to us is not only eternal life, but it is also life for NOW! We are truly living in very challenging days as so many lust after power and use all means of force and manipulation to obtain it.

Yet, Jesus said the following: Matthew 20:26 (NKJV) 26 Yet it shall not be so among you; but whoever desires to become great among you, let him be your servant. Think of it. The most amazing person to ever live on the face of this earth was Jesus Christ. He did nothing to force Himself on anyone, yet people willingly follow His teaching and example down through the ages and continue today.

He laid His life down willingly so that you and I would have the example of willing sacrifice and love for others.

We have seen the evils of “wars and rumors of wars” happening today as untold thousands of people have been displaced from one country to another. While that is another kind of “power” that will one day be dealt with by a just Judge, there is little doubt this kind of power produces anything but disdain and hatred for the oppressor.

Jesus came that we might have life and that it would be abundant life! We may not have all the answers of “why” on this earth, but we do know that Jesus understands the beginning to the end. He is Alpha and Omega!

1 Corinthians 15:54 (NKJV) 54 So when this corruptible has put on incorruption, and this mortal has put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written: “Death is swallowed up in victory.”

Without the Resurrection, we have nothing, but WITH the power of the Resurrection, the Christian will ultimately prevail and overcome!

I want to encourage you to take advantage of the fact we can (and will) gather together for Easter and celebrate His Resurrection. It's more than ritual or tradition, but it's our living HOPE, and it is POWER!

Be sure to attend on (March 31,2024) and invite a friend to attend with you!

He's Alive!
