04/11/20 Weekend Grif.Net – No Easter?

After the President’s news conference was over, =
one of the reporters made the observation that for the first time in our =
nation’s history we won’t be celebrating Easter. Well let me =
tell you one thing, he’s dead wrong.

 

We might not celebrate what Easter has become in that =
there may be no new clothes bought for that Sunday. We might not hide =
and hunt eggs in mass quantities. We may not travel home to attend =
church with our family. We might not see some folks at our worship =
ser
v=
ices that we haven’t seen since Christmas, but we ARE going to =
celebrate Easter.

 

A=
s a matter of fact, every Sunday is Easter Sunday. Every time we =
assemble for worship we celebrate the resurrection of our Lord and =
Savior Jesus Christ. Pilate couldn’t kill Him and the grave =
couldn’t hold Him. You think the Coronavirus is going to stop =
Easter?. More people this year will hear the gospel than any other =
Easter before.

Easter is not just about special =
programs, although we will still have them at our church. It’s not =
about the trumpet call or the mass crowds. It’s the fact that we =
serve a living Savior who is still transforming lives today. =

 

E=
aster is not only about His resurrection, but our ability to rise with =
Him. Easter is about the hope of tomorrow and the gift of everlasting =
life. Yes. indeed, we will celebrate. We’ll celebrate what God did =
for all of us at Calvary. How? By remembering Him. By loving Him. By =
worshipping Him. By praising Him.

 

C=
elebrating Easter for us is every day. Let the celebration =
begin!

I serve a risen Savior, He’s in the =
world today

I know that He is =
living, whatever men may say

I =
see His hand of mercy, I hear His voice of cheer

And just the time I need Him He’s always =
near

He lives (He lives), He =
lives (He lives), Christ Jesus lives today

He walks with me and talks with =
me

Along life’s narrow =
way

He lives (He lives), He =
lives (He lives), Salvation to impart

You ask me how I know He lives?
He lives within my =
heart
