Most Easters it seems strange to me. That we’re still talking about this carpenter’s son from an obscure village in Palestine who lived two thousand years ago. There’s no way that his story should have survived beyond the days of his contemporaries.
Except, he didn’t stay dead.
We celebrate his resurrection this Sunday. We will do so by looking at its impact not on those who knew him, but on those who didn’t. In Ephesians 1:15-23, the first person to ever write about Jesus tells his readers that he prays that they will experience the full impact of Jesus’ resurrection – God’s power working in them.
The most compelling evidence for the resurrection of Jesus?
The new lives of those who believed.
We look forward to welcoming families, friends, and guest to what will be a great Easter service.
