Of all the many reasons Christians have to celebrate, none are greater than the resurrection of Jesus Christ. His victory over death, hell and the grave has brought victory to all who would call on His name by grace through faith. The question I want us to deal with this coming Easter morning is, what difference does it make? There are many people who believe Jesus rose from the dead, but how many people are experiencing the victory of His resurrection in their day to day life? Paul speaks of our victory in Christ in Ephesians 2:1-10. This is a power packed section of Scripture that brings believers face to face with the glorious life found in Christ. As we prepare for Sunday, I have 3 challenges for all of us: 1. Pray – Pray for the Spirit of God to revive our hearts and draw people to salvation in Jesus. 2. Invite – Invite friends and family to worship with you this Easter. People are more likely to attend a worship service when they are invited. 3. Welcome – Let’s go out of our way to make sure everyone is welcomed Sunday morning. These 3 challenges are good challenges for each Sunday. I pray that these 3 challenges will become as natural to us as breathing. I love you church family and I am so excited to celebrate our Risen Savior with you this Sunday! In His grace, Pastor Tim
