From the Pastor

April 4, 2021

Because of the Resurrection of Jesus, you are somebody with a bright and promising future. You have a royal birth, a righteous character, and a rich eternal inheritance. This is only a few of the things that are a result of the Resurrection of our Lord. Anytime you get to feeling as though you are nothing, meditate on the truth of the death and Resurrection of Jesus.

His Resurrection has given us a solid foundation on which to base life. Because He lives, we live! As we ingest God’s Word we enjoy freedom from the power, presence, and penalty of sin. He bore your sins and mine in His own body by willingly enduring the shame and disgrace of the cross. He is the source of all we have and the only hope of ever really getting to live.

When the Father raised Him from the tomb, He placed Him in a position of supreme and absolute authority. He defeated Satan on his own ground and deprived him of his authority. The blessing of Resurrection life can never be forfeited, dismissed, or destroyed. They are as eternal as God is eternal. Look up and rejoice you are on the winning side.

Thought for today: The more we come to appreciate the sacrifice of Christ, the less we think and talk about our own sacrifices.
