Pastor’s Blog – April, 2014
Where did the month go? The weather has been changing so fast we don’t know what to expect on any given day. The season of Lent has blasted right by us even though Easter is still a few weeks away but it seems to be breathing new life into us every second.
The true message of Easter is a promise of new life in Jesus Christ. New life is not just a dream but a reality. The resurrected Christ has breathed that new life into the Church and thereby into us.
Are we ready to accept the challenge of a new life in Christ? Are we ready to live like people who have heard the Good News of Jesus Christ? If we are, will we trust each other enough to live as resurrected people?
These are all questions that must be asked and answered by us if we are to move forward instead of backward. Life is not easy and no one can make it through this life alone. It is time to rise up and claim to each other and the world; the tomb is empty, I’ve poked my head inside and seen for myself. Jesus is Alive and lives in me!
