Happy Easter

He is risen!
I am thankful for such a beautiful and very meaningful Easter weekend. Starting with a Good Friday service which was very powerful, moving into a prayer vigil and then a very moving Easter service this am. Each year I am more convinced that you cannot truly experience the joy of Easter without experiencing the weight of your sin on Good Friday - the very sin that pinned Jesus to the cross.
Easter is all about hope! If Jesus was just a good man who died for a cause then that's it - the story is over and it means little to us today! But He was and is so much more than that. The Son of God - who died to reconcile us to God - resurrected and triumphing over death and sin and all that separates us from a loving God who desires a relationship with us!
Thank you Jesus for your sacrifice! Thank you for the cross which allows me to draw near now! The veil is torn - the victory is yours!
He is risen!
He is risen indeed!
