What’s Lent and Easter all about anyway? Does it … should it excite worshippers and engage our sphere of influence to do much more than just fill up houses of worship on the annual scheduled Sundays? How do you and I (and our friends) prepare to celebrate Jesus’ resurrection victory on Easter Sunday?
The seven (7) week celebration of resurrection, beginning on Ash Wednesday, can become more meaningful when the people of God set aside time each week leading up to Resurrection weekend. When we study all that Jesus has done for us, and personalize it in our hearts every day – our meditations will invite us to look to the cruel Cross and consider the lifelong impact of Jesus’ empty Tomb. Mostly, our daily readings and weekend sermons will help us hear truths that transform, so we can grow closer to our crucified and glorified Savior!
My foremost prayer for this series: CRUCIFIED, GLORIFIED! is that everyone who worships with us will experience the daily activity and life-changing power of God that draws us closer to Himself …. and our own resurrection future by faith!
