Easter Sunday

Today is the day we celebrate that our Lord was not captured by death, even though He died on a cruel cross on Friday. He thought I was worth it. Worth being beaten, stabbed, pierced by a crown of thorns and mocked and made fun of by a taunting crowd. He thought you were worth it too. His death has given us access to the greatest source of grace and mercy through the greatest act of unconditional love. Don't miss out on that love today---He is the God who has always been, always is and always will be. What peace that brings. He is Risen. He is Risen indeed!


Easter 2012


We rejoice in the resurrection of Christ, who came to save all and not just some.
He is the Son of God, the One who was, who is and who is to come.

He was the God of Adam and Eve, who tried to hide from Him what they’d done.
He was the God of Abraham who was willing to sacrifice his precious son.
He was the God of a broken David who still sought Him with all his heart.
He was the God of a fearful Esther who boldly stood up to play her part.
He was the God of His mother Mary whose grief screamed when on the cross He died.
He was the God of Pontius Pilate who fell victim to the ruthless crowd’s cries.

He is the God of the unwed mother who fears she has no place to turn.
He is the God of the father who is dying and yet for more time his soul yearns.
He is the God of the family who just lost someone special in their lives.
He is the God of the broken-hearted who bought into the world’s trap of lies.

He will be the God who breaks open the sky, much like He did bursting forth from the grave.
He will be the Faithful and True Warrior, seated on His white horse, tall and brave.
He will be the God who binds up Satan and tosses him into the lake of fire at last.
He will be the God who reigns forever, over our present, our future and our past.

Today is the day we celebrate His triumphant victory over death.
He sealed His unconditional love for us when on the cross He drew He last breath.
He showed us His power and might when He came storming back from the cold, dark grave.
And all this He did out of perfect love and for our souls to save.

Make this day more than a symbol, make it a choice to give your life to the Holy One.
Give your all to the One who was, who is and, praise His name, who is to come!
