Welcome to the Family this Easter weekend. This weekend is not about trying to get something right. Its not about knowing the songs, knowing where to sit and how to act proper. In fact, our response to Christ and His sacrifice is anything but proper. The truth is, in the Bible, Mary wept, Peter ran, the disciples were in awe, and one didn’t even believe. That was their “proper” response to Christ and His powerful resurrection. This weekend, Christ isn’t looking for a “proper” response, He is just looking for you. He wants to encounter you with His love, with His grace, with His power. He wants you to know that He wasn’t just alive then, He is alive now.
Today, take time to respond to a Christ who is very much alive and who is very much in love with you.
Celebrating Christ’s Resurrection,
Pastors Matthew and Siobhan Oliver
