Senior Pastor, Reverend, Paul Allan
Dear Church Family,
Happy Easter! This year Resurrection Sunday is April 1st , and as you know that is also April fool's day. Probably the biggest fool is the person that does not believe there is a God. “The fool has said in his heart there is no God” (Psalm 14:1). Church, I am not worried that any of you doubt the existence of God. Rather, I am anxious that you come to know Him personally through The His Risen Son our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. There is a promise given to us is, if we believe in Him, then we too shall live.
You can sum up the Gospel up this way: Christ died for our sins in accordance with the scriptures, He was buried, and He rose on the third day. The hope of Glory is that He is coming back, and we too will rise, because we have been set free from the power of sin and death. At that time the old saying will be fulfilled, “Death is swallowed up in victory death where is your victory? O death where is your sting?” (1 Corinthians 15:55)
We are starting a Sermon series next week called "Ever After" I want us to look at what the Bible really has to say about the afterlife. If you are like most people and have questions about Heaven, Hell and the Final Judgement, then I encourage you to attend or listen on-line. (LampasasMethodist .com)
Church, I hope this Easter finds you full of hope, that you not only marvel at what Christ has done at the cross, but also in His resurrection. He has demonstrated that he loves us and that He can rescue us! And because we know He loves us, we can be confident that He will rescue us even from death! Praise be to God!
Because He Lives,
