Resurrection Sunday

This is the day the Lord has made and I will rejoice and be glad in it!

We have a lot to rejoice about it. This is the weekend we celebrate our Lord's death, burial, and resurrection!

In our local congregation we are celebrating with an illustrated sermon/drama including a cast of over 100 people. I am excited this year because we have added a scene about the curtain in the temple being torn. When Jesus breathed His last breath, something wonderful happened.

Matthew 27:51 says, "At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. The earth shook and the rocks split."

No longer was the presence of God limited to the priests. Jesus paid the price for all mankind so that "whosoever will" can enter His presence and sit at His feet.

If you live in our area, I invite you to our Easter drama entitled, "The Lamb of God". We will portray our Lord's life, death and resurrection on Saturday at 4pm and Sunday at 8 am and 10:30 am.

May you be filled with the newness of life that comes from accepting Christ!
