He Is Risen..He Is Risen Indeed!!
I’ve always had such a fondness, excitement and wonderment around the Passion Week and especially Easter Sunday!
A number of years ago when I had the privilege to actually tour the country of Israel, it was like my Bible came alive as places, sites and historical pictures all became so vivid and real.
I actually got to tour the Praetorium, the area believed to be where Jesus was severely scourged and flogged. I was also privileged to walk to the hill traditionally known as the “skull” where people believed that Jesus was crucified. However, the most amazing and un-forgetable place was the garden Tomb, where Jesus was placed and then where he rose three days later.
This Sunday we are coming together to remember and to celebrate what Jesus Christ did for each one of us. My prayer is that this Sunday will be meaningful, as well as memorable as we walk through Christ’s last week on earth. It is so significant that we remember the pain and humiliation He went through on the cross, but to hear the words He uttered: “It is Finished”. The Greek word is ‘tetelestai’ which isn’t a depressing, “life is over” word. It’s actually the opposite: its a victorious word packed with hope, power and strength…because as we read the rest of the story…the tomb is empty. He is not here..He is Risen!!
We look forward to seeing you at church this Easter Sunday,
Pastor Glenn and Cheryl
