When it comes to Easter let’s be clear. It’s not about Bunnies, Egg, Chocolate Candy or Jellybeans…even though I know we love to engage with these things and especially consume them. But Easter really is about Jesus and His Resurrection from the dead! This is the most amazing reality of our Christian faith! That He is RISEN!
As such, if we commit our lives to God through Him, then we can have the assurance that since He lives…we will live too! Death may come (and it is appointed unto man once to die and then the judgment) but death will not be a tragic end for us! The Resurrection of Jesus is the cornerstone of the gospel and of our future hope for life after death! Someone has said, “Everything we are, have, and hope to be is dependent on the reality of Christ’s resurrection.”
It is my sincere hope that as you spend time with your family this weekend, the cross and the resurrection of Jesus would be the centerpiece of your gathering and celebration!

On Behalf of Our Risen Lord,
Pastor Jacob Denys
