It has begun. We have entered Jerusalem amid the chanting of the crowd and the waving of the branches. Tonight we will gather, much like those in the room who celebrated the Passover Meal. Our meal will be Holy Communion. Instituted that night so long ago. We will hear the call to be His servants and go, in His name, into the world and serve. Tomorrow we will gather and face our sin as we recount the trial and execution of Jesus Christ. We will come face to face with the part we played in his death. Our sin He bore upon the tree. To save us, He gave His life.
On Sunday we will celebrate our Risen Lord, the One who conquered death. We will sing the songs of life, of triumph. Amid the despair we see around us, these are songs that can show us what we can be... a people of hope, a people of love. May you and yours revel in the love God poured over you through His Son, Jesus Christ. May you have a joy-filled Easter! He Lives! He Lives! Christ Jesus lives today!!!
I urge you to look at these scriptures: Scripture for this week: Acts 10: 34-43; Psalm 66; I Corinthians 15: 19 -26; John 20: 1 -18
