FROM THE VACANCY PASTOR

 

CHRIST IS RISEN! HE IS RISEN INDEED!

The words of the Easter Greeting will resound all over Christendom on April 1, and thereafter.

It is very appropriate that we as people who have experienced the goodness and Grace of God share with one another that message of Joy and Assurance.

Can you imagine, however, the feelings of the first Disciples? Their world had been turned upside down. They had spent the past three years with Jesus of Nazareth, Jesus who could do miracles, He could heal the sick, give sight to the blind, make the deaf to hear, raise the dead, and most importantly-cast out demons. But He also could do something which was even more remarkable, He could, and did forgive sins. As the crippled man heard when his friends let him down through the roof of the house, the first thing Jesus said to him was, "Your sins are forgiven," and only after that did He say, "Take up you bed and walk." But their world had come crashing down around them for they saw the events of Thursday night and Friday. Jesus, whom they thought was going to revive the Kingdom of the House of David, or perhaps really was the Messiah, had been crucified on a Roman Cross like a common criminal. But then the women said the tomb was empty. And Peter and John ran and saw that it was empty. They didnít know what to believe. But He came and stood in the midst of them, and said "Peace Be with You." He came to tell us just as He told the paralyzed man, "Your sins are forgiven."

That was His purpose for coming to this earth, to live, to suffer, to die and then rise from the dead that we might have the forgiveness of sins and life forever in Glory with Him.

CHRIST IS RISEN! HE IS RISEN INDEED!

Pastor Abel
