Is it Easter or the Resurrection for You?
The busyness of the Easter holiday seems to be growing. More is being purchased probably than ever before. Easter is an appropriate name of this day for most for it is a pagan holiday. As a believer though, we do not celebrate Spring or "new life" as those who celebrate Easter do (knowingly or ignorantly). Rather, it is the day that we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ even referring to it as "Resurrection Sunday!" What a wonderful fact it is that the Lord used such a pagan holiday to complete his plan for the redemption of man. May Easter never replace the importance and place that the resurrection of Jesus Christ holds. Praise God that you are here and are a part of our services as we seek to lift up the Lord in praise and honor for He is worthy - and the truth is, He is the creator of Spring and He is the giver of "new life." You can have a new life starting today in Him. 2 Corinthians 5:17 says: "Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new." Why don't you trust Him today! Thank you for being a part of our services and please let us know how we can bless you. - Pastor Mark Sage
