Word from the Pastor14 April 2017
He is Alive and Is With Us
The Lord is risen! He is risen indeed! Jesus is alive forevermore!
We are celebrating Resurrection Sunday 2017, in the knowledge that Lord Jesus is not only alive, but He is with us – to advance His Kingdom through building a people of faith, hope and love. We are called to live His life in peace, joy and the certainty of heaven while we’re still on this planet, doing business and occupying His expanding dominion – until He comes again.
We live in such a blessed world, with technological advances that will bring us in the next ten years affordable electric cars, autonomous self-driving vehicles, even flying cars. Our smart phones will get smarter, and modern societies will move to cashless environments.
In the face of these strides into a seeming bright future are signs of tension in the political, economic and military arenas all around the globe. Truly, things are changing, and fast! But the basic and most fundamental question remains with the whole of humanity – what next?
The issue of eternity must always be the focus of our existence. Heaven and hell are real, and you and I are charged with the burden of declaring God’s truth to all we know and come in touch with. The fact and the truth that Jesus is alive, and one day, everyone will bow before Him and confess He is Lord, must compel us to be passionate in reaching the lost, with His love and in the power of the Holy Spirit.
Let’s not neglect on this responsibility. Happy Easter to all!
