Take Your Opportunity

Without Easter, Christmas would only be a sentimental holiday. Christ’s birth and earthly life was leading to His death, burial, and resurrection. The Apostle Paul sums up
the Gospel in 1 Corinthians 15:3 when he says, “For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures.” Never forget the heart of the Gospel is the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus!
Thousands of people will attend worship services this Easter, but never assume that all who attend truly know Jesus. Easter provides perhaps the single greatest opportunity for Gospel witness to our lost friends, neighbors, and family members. As we gather to celebrate what Christ has done for us, let’s also pray for and witness of the life changing power of Jesus to bring spiritual transformation to all who believe!
