"They found the stone rolled away from the entrance of the tomb, but when they went in, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. While they were wondering about this, two men in shining clothes suddenly stood beside them. The women were very afraid and bowed their heads to the ground. The men said to them, "Why are you looking for the living in this place of the dead? He is not here, He has risen from the dead. Do you remember what He told you in Galilee?" ~Luke 24:2-6
"HE IS RISEN...…!!! HE IS RISEN, INDEED...!!!!" HE IS NOT DEAD...HE IS ALIVE!!!!!
HALLELUJAH!!!! GLORY TO GOD...!!!! JESUS CHRIST, OUR SAVIOR....RISEN!!!
On this beautiful RESURRECTION SUNDAY, we give glory to our Risen Savior, Jesus Christ. Oh, what a wonderful reason for HOPE...!! As Believers, we can affirm that God raised Jesus from the dead on the third day!! Blessed RESURRECTION DAY..!
We rejoice in knowing that we have Hope and Joy because our salvation has been confirmed by the Resurrection. We are assured that we have the authority to proclaim and bear witness to what God has done for us. Jesus IS who He said He was...He IS the Son of God..!! Hallelujah!!!
We may not be able to worship together (physically), but we continue to worship and praise God together as we hold fast to His awesome love and promise for us. Our Risen Savior will save us, just as He promised He would. John 11:25-26 reminds us, "I am the resurrection and the life. Anyone who believes in me will live, even after dying. Everyone who lives and believes in me will never die."
I am convinced that we will be worshipping together again very soon.....until then, we pray for one another...we rejoice with one another, we look forward to celebrating our Risen Savior, Jesus Christ with our Family of Faith. Be encouraged..!! Remember the enemy can't keep us from our Joy, our Peace, our Purpose and our Passion...Serving God in the beauty of holiness. Jesus promised that His purpose is to give us a rich and satisfying life. (John 10:10) We find Hope in the Resurrection!!
HE IS RISEN...HE IS RISEN, INDEED...!! Hold on...!! Change is Coming..!! CHRIST THE LORD IS RISEN TODAY...HALLELUJAH.!!
Peace and Joy,
Pastor Barbara J. Montague
