From Mark Jessop - Happy Easter!

April 2, 2015 - 12:53 PM

Holy Thursday: Jesus as a Jew celebrated Passover in the upper room with his disciples, including the one who would betray Him. But this Passover was different for Jesus. He knew what would happen in only a few short hours and shared with His disciples that His body would be broken and His blood would be shed. It is that Passover celebration that we now remember through the participation of communion.

Good Friday: The day Jesus went to the cross. The day He bore all the sins of the world, past, present and future. The pain and suffering He experienced that day for me, for you, for all of us really is incomprehensible, but that is the power of His love for us.

Easter: He is Risen! The grave could not hold Him. Death could not defeat Him. We serve a risen and living Lord. Hallejuah!

I pray that this Easter, each of you are able to remember, reflect on and fully experience the everlasting love of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

God Bless,

Mark
