|He is Risen! Easter Sunday Service|
Easter Sunday, April 12, 2020
Note from Pastor Kent: He Is Risen!
As I prepared for Easter a Headline caught my eye – The Resurrection has not been Canceled.
Timothy Dalrymple shared his thoughts about the resurrection based on Philippians 3:“I want to know Christ—yes, to know the power of his resurrection and participation in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, and so, somehow, attaining to the resurrection from the dead.” (Philippians 3:10–11)
This is how Timothy concluded his blog:
“Church doors are closed. Schools are no longer meeting. Businesses are shuttered. Restaurants and cafés are empty, cinema screens are dark, and concert halls are silent. Countless meetings and gatherings, weddings and funerals, conferences and events have been canceled.
The resurrection is not canceled. God is always in the business of bringing life out of death. Jesus emerged from the tomb so that we can do the same—on Easter and every other day. There is nothing in all the world that could have stopped the resurrection of Jesus Christ two thousand years ago, and there is nothing that can stop it today.
We worship the God of empty tombs. We worship the God of resurrections. We implore you, O Lord, bring life out of death again today. Let it start in us.”
“See” you on Sunday. He is Risen!!!
