Like Christmas we will continue to celebrate Easter! Christmas was the birth of our Savior. Easter is the truimph of our Savior.
Yesterday was wonderful at Woodland. A packed sanctuary, deep sense of the Holy Spirit’s presence, songs of praise and worship captured our hearts with the truth that Christ lives! Our hearts were stirred, our eyes moist with joy as so many crossed the platform with their cardboard testimony of how Christ changed their life! I’m smiling from ear to ear just remembering.
Why do we celebrate? Christ has conquered death, hell and the devil. Christ has accomplished saving grace for all who believe in his atoning gift. Because Christ lives, we too live. Hallelujah! (Pardon me, but this is exciting.)
The dreaded effects of lukewarm Christianity, a hardened heart, are healed as believers repent of their obsession with themselves. Christ’s life within us heals us of a critical and bitter tongue, and fault-finding. Instead His love growing in us enables us to see others with faith, hope and love. We begin to see in them what God sees in them. Our lips begin to sing His love from our hearts with joy and gladness about the redeeming grace of God and the Redeemer.
Tomorrow we will continue the celebration of Easter. Like Christmas, this moment deserves more than just a day!
I would love to hear from you how Jesus has transformed your life. Please drop me a line today.
Rejoice with me. He lives!
Peace and Joy
