THE TRIUMPH OF EASTER

 

The most triumphant day on the Christian calendar is Easter Sunday. Through the years the greatest days in my ministry have happened on Easter. Record-breaking crowds and thrilling Spiritual victories have been tremendous highlights in many of my churches. In one church 125 people by actual count responded to the invitation. It was a sight I will never forget, as the people kept coming to fill the altars over and over again! Some were entire families, others responded, answering the long-time prayers of family members. In another church 3,432 people broke every attendance record in my pastoral ministry. Without a doubt it was an electrifying event! It was hard to get an actual count of the people responding to the invitation, but we know it was huge!

 

Bess and I are climaxing our 6 month interim ministry at Restoration Fellowship Church of Lakeland on Easter weekend. Two services will be held. The RFC Singers will be featured in the Easter musical “SANCTUARY, AT HOME IN THE HOUSE OF THE LORD” on Saturday at 6:00 p.m. An Easter Celebration service will be held at 10:00 Easter morning. It will be an exciting service, featuring music and the Word. My Easter message will be “The Presentation Of The Living Lord” from Revelation 1:17, 18.

 

A very happy, exciting and victorious Easter!

HAPPY EASTER

 

When I think of the Easter Season, I fall in love all over again, as I visualize my Lord, Suffering for me, and all others.  1. Suffering as He prayed in the Garden; 2. Suffering as He was betrayed by Judas; 3. Suffering as He was led away to Caiaphas, the high priest; 4. Suffering as they accused Him of blasphemy; 5. Suffering as they spit in His face and buffeted Him; 6. Suffering as they smote Him with the palms of their hands; 7. Suffering as Peter denied Him thrice; 8. Suffering as they bound Him and led Him away, delivering Him to Pontius Pilate, the governor; 9. Suffering from the accusations of the chief priests and elders; 10. Suffering from the crowd calling for crucifixion; 11. Suffering from the scourging, the stripping, the scarlet robe, the crown of thorns, the reed in His right hand, the mocking, the spit, the hit; 12. Suffering from His crucifixion; 13. Suffering in His death. I am overcome at this amazing love, the price He paid for my and your salvation. This love woes me. I can’t help but love and serve Him.  The words of Bill Gaither are appropriate here. “I keep falling in love with Him, over and over again…”

 

 

When I think of the Easter Season, I rejoice with exceeding great joy at our Lord’s resurrection. The grave could not hold Him. He rose triumphantly. I, too (and you, too), will rise from our deathbeds on one of God’s days.

 

 

When I think of the Easter Season, I see our lives mirroring His; a life born, growing, living for the Lord, suffering, dying, and then, in God’s own time, living again, BECAUSE of His resurrection.  The grave won’t hold me either, in God’s great “Gettin’ Up Morning.” “We’re marching to Zion, beautiful, beautiful Zion. We’re marching upward to Zion, the beautiful city of God.” Thank you, Jesus. Thank you, Jesus.  Thank you, Jesus!  “I could never, never out love the Lord.”
