This Week Come Celebrate Easter!

he-is-risen-printableThis Sunday, whether it be at Asbury, or another church, I really hope you will be in church to celebrate Easter!  I really hope you come out and be with us as we proclaim that the Lord is Risen!  He is risen indeed!

Come out this week and celebrate Easter!

Wait, what?

Wasn’t that last week? Is Andy just recycling old posts? What is he talking about?

Yes, this coming Sunday, we will celebrate Easter. We celebrate Easter every Sunday. That’s why we Christians worship on Sunday, instead of the Jewish Sabbath of Saturday. We are a Sunday people. We are an Easter people.

Listen to what happens in Matthew 28: 5-7:

But 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. Then go quickly and tell his disciples that he has risen from the dead, and behold, he is going before you to Galilee; there you will see him. See, I have told you.”

He is just as risen today, as He was on Easter.  Every Sunday, every time we Christian gather together, it is Easter.  We are a people of hope. We are a people of resurrection.  We are a people of life.

And we don’t just believe that one Sunday a year.  We believe that every Sunday, we believe that every day.

He is risen. And sin, death, and the grave are defeated.  They were defeated Sunday.  And they are defeated today.

Don’t let Easter be just one day a year for you.  It’s every day.  It’s every Sunday.  It’s all our lives. Jesus Christ has risen from the dead and has conquered sin, death, and the grave.

He is risen.  Come celebrate with us.  It is Easter. Every day. For every day, He is risen.
