An EASTER FIRST!
This Easter, something truly amazing will take place. For the first time in the history of the world, the Resurrection message of hope and eternal life can reach more people than ever before. Think about it.
Our churches will not physically meet together to celebrate Easter, but they will be very active! The Good News of Jesus will be broadcast on TV and radio, streamed, Facebooked, Zoomed, video linked, and electronically spread to more people in more nations and more communities than ever before in history!
I am so proud of all my fellow clergy and pastors in these challenging days. We are all working hard to get the Good News of Jesus Christ “out there.” Even in these days (actually, because of these days), the message will get out further and wider than ever before. It will be communicated in living rooms, family rooms, bedrooms, and kitchens to whoever has a laptop, tablet, cellphone, or desktop computer.
This means that we have a chance this Easter to literally reach the world with the transforming Gospel of Jesus Christ as never before! Please join me in prayer that God will use this time like never before to reach millions with His message.
People we could never reach at any other time will hear a message of hope in Christ. They will hear that suffering will not have the final say in our lives. They will hear that death has been vanquished, totally defeated. Jesus is alive! There is an end to suffering, and in the end, joy breaks through.
Thanks be to God who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ! (1 Cor.15:57)
