Message from The Pastor
HE’S NOT DEAD, HE IS RISEN!
As we approach this coming Palm Sunday and Resurrection Sunday (many refer to as Easter), let us take a moment and reflect. During the past two years, we have seen a lot of death, devastation, despair, and distress, so much so that many lost hope. This reminds me of that eventful Friday afternoon over 2000 years ago. A Savior and a King, the hope of a generation, hung on a cross on a hill called Calvary. During this event, he asked the Father to forgive, cried “it is finished”, hung his head, and died. I believe many felt the same sting of death, the stranglehold of devastation, suffocation of despair, and stress of distress that we feel today. My word to you is Be Not Discouraged, but let me assure you that in all these this Romans 8:37 reminds us “Nay in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.” Know this, for every Friday afternoon, there is a Sunday morning. Through all of our sufferings, God’s glory will be revealed. Therefore, I leave you with words from David in Psalms 24:7-8 “Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be lifted up ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in. Who is this King of glory? The Lord strong and mighty, the Lord mighty in battle.”
BE ENCOURAGED, HE IS NOT DEAD, HE IS RISEN.
