Hey everyone! It’s Tuesday morning of Holy Week, the week that leads up to Resurrection Sunday – the title I prefer to Easter Sunday. Sunday is the day that we celebrate the Resurrection of Jesus Christ! The Maker and Perfector of our faith! As we head through the week I want to challenge you to read some scriptures and do a few things to prepare for Sunday!
- First read the arrest and crucifixion narrative sometime this week from all four Gospels. Maybe Read one Each day starting on Wednesday. They are each two chapters long. (Matthew 26 & 27; Mark 14 & 15; Luke 22 & 23; John 18 & 19)
- Also Read 1 Corinthians 15. I am going to be preaching out of that chapter but for time’s sake won’t be able to cover the entire chapter. We will be specifically studying verses 3-8; 18; 20-22; and 57. But to have a good grasp of the context it will help if you have read the text before coming.
- PRAY. Meditate. If you feel led…fast. Prepare your heart and soul for something from God.
- Join us at Elmwood Church of Christ on Friday night at 7pm for our Good Friday service. This will prepare you even more for what is to come on Sunday.
Resurrection Sunday is always a special day. I have many beautiful memories from past observances of the resurrection of Christ. I know this coming Sunday will be added to those! Join us at 8:30am or 11:00am. Breakfast will be served between the two services! Lots of good food and great fellowship! We will be finishing our Song of the Ages teaching series with a message titled: O Glorious Day!
I hope this past month you have taken it to heart and been encouraged by the fact that Jesus Paid It All, so that we could understand How Great the Father’s Love is, and realize that each one can come, Just As I Am, to receive his Amazing Grace, so One Day we can share in His resurrection…O Glorious Day!
May God bless you and keep you, may He cause His Light to shine upon you, and grant you peace!
