The good news of Easter Sunday when the disciples of Jesus found the tomb empty and he was not there, but had risen from the grave, is that it gives each one of us the possibility of new life now. The power of the resurrection is not something that simply awaits us after death, but something that comes to us now; that proclaims the good news that new life is possible here, now. Today, there is no need to wait, any longer. Believe in Jesus; ask him to come into your life and everything changes. It seems like so many in our world are longing for an experience of Easter in their lives. People in our world are struggling in so many ways, with addictions, broken relationships, sickness, grief and fear and are damaged because the way this world has treated them. In so many ways, people are longing for new life. When Jesus rose from the tomb on that first Easter Sunday he not only gave them and us the promise and hope of life in the future with him, he gave us the ability to relate with the living God and to experience that new life now, today in this messy world we find ourselves in. So on this resurrection Sunday remember the words from the book of Peter “praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade.” Alleluia! Christ is risen. The Lord is risen indeed. Alleluia! God Bless, Lawrie Linggood We warmly WELCOME you to our Service this morning, and invite you to join us for MORNING TEA after………………...
