Easter

(Matthew 28 KJV)

  28 In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre.And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it.His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow:And for fear of him the keepers did shake, and became as dead men.And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified.He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.And go quickly, and tell his disciples that he is risen from the dead; and, behold, he goeth before you into Galilee; there shall ye see him: lo, I have told you.And they departed quickly from the sepulchre with fear and great joy; and did run to bring his disciples word.And as they went to tell his disciples, behold, Jesus met them, saying, All hail. And they came and held him by the feet, and worshipped him.10 Then said Jesus unto them, Be not afraid: go tell my brethren that they go into Galilee, and there shall they see me.11 Now when they were going, behold, some of the watch came into the city, and shewed unto the chief priests all the things that were done.12 And when they were assembled with the elders, and had taken counsel, they gave large money unto the soldiers,  13 Saying, Say ye, His disciples came by night, and stole him away while we slept.14 And if this come to the governor’s ears, we will persuade him, and secure you.15 So they took the money, and did as they were taught: and this saying is commonly reported among the Jews until this day. 16 Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, into a mountain where Jesus had appointed them.17 And when they saw him, they worshipped him: but some doubted.18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

Blessed [be] the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,

 

Romans 10:9 

 

That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

 

John 11:25 

 

Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:

 

Romans 8:11 

 

But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.

 

Romans 6:4 

 

Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.

Letter From Tim

 

Happy Easter!   This month we get to celebrate and remember the biggest event in human history: the resurrection of Jesus! This is what sets Christianity apart from other religions. In other religions it’s about us working our way to a god or peace of mind but in Christianity, God came to us! He walked the talk. He lived THE perfect life. He did what you and I could never do: make the last sacrifice for our sins for our eternal forgiveness.   “But the angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified. He is not here, for he has risen, as he said. Come, see the place where he lay. Then go quickly and tell his disciples that he has risen from the dead, and behold, he is going before you to Galilee; there you will see him. See, I have told you.””  Matthew 28:5-7 ESV   The empty cross is what signifies His death. The empty tomb is what fills us daily. And the ascension is why we have God’s Spirit constantly helping us.   This Easter, don’t forget the reason WHY Jesus died. It wasn’t something that He did wrong. It wasn’t an unfortunate plot that He got tangled up in. It was for what you and I have done and will do wrong. Our sins of disobedience towards our Creator. He GAVE His life as a sacrifice. The last LAMB that would ever have to be slaughtered was Jesus. The only truly spotless Lamb without a blemish of any curse of sin… well until He took our sins upon Himself and the wrath was poured out on Him on the cross for your and my disobedience. Don’t forget this Easter the grave was EMPTY for all to see. And like the women were instructed: “Come, see the place where he lay. Then go quickly and tell his disciples that he has risen from the dead…”.  In other words, come experience the resurrected Savior and then GO and TELL others what you have witnessed. Have you experienced God? Have you asked Him to forgive you and surrendered your life to Him? Who around you hasn’t?         Go, tell what God has done and who He is. Invite someone to church who doesn’t go to any other church this Easter. Be open to God’s leading and love others as God has loved you and as you love yourself. And love God with your whole being.   May God bless you this month and grow your faith and trust in Him!  

Tim
