HAPPY RESURRECTION SUNDAY - 2014

Postby natman » Sun Apr 20, 2014 8:11 am

There are three day of the year that I believe we have great cause for celebration.

1. Christmas
2. Good Friday
3. Resurrection Sunday

Although we do not know the exact day of the year that Jesus was born, and there is great speculation that He was likely born in either the spring or fall because of the required trip to Bethlehem, we celebrate His birth because without it, there would be no death and no resurrection.

I am tossed about which is more important for us to celebrate, Good Friday or Resurrection Sunday.

Good Friday is a celebration of the one day throughout all of history that changed the course of history for all mankind for it is upon the death of Christ that our sins are forgiven. It is by His blood that those who would accept Jesus as Lord and Savior are justified before God.

However, it is upon Resurrection Sunday that the realization of eternal life is made manifest in our Risen Lord. It is upon this day that we KNOW we have the promise of life everlasting in the presence of our Lord and our God.

Let us celebrate that our loving God has provided a Way out of the darkness and into His Holy light.

Sing, dance, rejoice, worship and look ever forward and never back. AMEN?
SON-cerely,
Nathan Powers

I listened to Christmas carols this morning while I was getting ready for church. All three days are vitally-important to our salvation. Without the Incarnation (Christmas), the crucifixion would not have been possible, and without the crucifixion, there would have been no need for our Lord to rise again.

I am naked and unashamed in Christ!!

Also listened to Handel's Messiah. Hallelujah! For the Lord God omnipotent reigneth!

I once led a Bible study on the scriptures used in the Messiah--as clear and cogent a Gospel presentation as any I've ever seen. 8)

Much of Handel flits by me - weighter than Vivaldi, but Bach or Telemann he ain't. But the Messiah is inspired genius
