Warm greetings in Christ!
As you know, we have been going through tremendous difficulty, both in our country and around the world, due to Covid-19 or Coronavirus. Many businesses are shutting down as well as numerous cancellations and postponements of events we were looking forward to only a few short weeks ago.
Yet, I’d like to encourage you with the thought today that Easter is not canceled! Yes, we may celebrate the resurrection a bit differently this year than we have in the past. Still, I believe because Jesus rose from the grave, we have tremendous hope for today, tomorrow, and all eternity!
Bill Gaither wrote the beautiful song, which seems to be more relevant today than ever. The words to the simple, yet powerful chorus go like this:
Because He lives, I can face tomorrow.
Because He lives, all fear is gone.
Because I know, yes, I know, He holds the future.
And life is worth the living… just because He lives!
I am so thankful in times like this, as well as at other times of crisis, we have a relationship with a risen Savior who invites us to bring our cares to Him for He cares for us. I would encourage you this Easter Season to worship and declare this risen Savior and raise a Hallelujah to the One who promises to be with us always.
If you haven’t already, I encourage you to check out my new Facebook page, Barbara Ann-Pastor.
I hope to have an inspiring audio Easter message waiting for you there or on our website on Easter morning.
