Easter Sunday Reading: He is Risen!

Begin with no candles lit.

HE IS GOD! He cannot stay dead. HE IS ALIVE. The true Glory of God shines in the world. The Light has won! The Eternal Light! TheBright Morning Star! The Light of the World!

The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified. He is not here, for he has risen, as he said. Come, see the place where he lay.

Light all the candles.

Click on the passages below and reflect…

Matthew 28:5-6; Colossians 1:15-23; 1 Peter 1:3-4

The Lord is risen!
The Lord is risen, indeed!

Death is no longer the final act. Because of Jesus’ victory over death, we have freedom to live eternally in restored relationship with God. Our history has been changed forever. Yet, we still have a choice to believe…daily.

How will you allow this amazing truth change you?

“Dear Jesus, I believe you defeated death. I place my trust in you. Transform my heart and mind to live fully in friendship with you beginning today!”

How will you let others know around you that Jesus is risen?!

“Dear Jesus, guide me to share this truth and hope with those around me – my family, friends and neighbours. Help them to see your love and hope within me and be drawn to your grace! Amen.”
