Pastoral Perspective

"He is risen"-- Luke 24:6 (NLT)

"if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved."--Romans 10:9 (ESV)

"even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ--by grace you have been saved--and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus,"--Ephesians 2:5-6 (ESV)

Our lives depend on the Resurrection. Without the Resurrection of Jesus Christ, we do not truly have faith or life (see 1 Corinthians 15:14, John 11:25, 1 Peter 1:3).

Let us together, brothers and sisters, give thanks for the Resurrection of Jesus Christ and remember that God, "has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead." (1 Peter 1:3, ESV)

Grace & Peace,
Pastor Tim
