A Blessed Easter Season

Home > A Message from our Pastor > A Blessed Easter Season

Christ is risen! He is risen, indeed!

St. Paul once laid it out for us very clearly, “If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men the most pitiable. But now Christ is risen from the dead, and has become the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep.” (1 Corinthians 15:19-20) The foundation of our faith is Christ and Him crucified. On that Good Friday, Jesus cried out, “It is finished.” Easter is the Father’s “Amen” to Jesus’ declaration. We are all now freely justified, that is “declared righteous” in God’s eyes. And along with that declaration, we have the promise of eternal life, both body and soul, in paradise.
