He is Risen!

1 Apr 2018 by SHRCChurch, Comments Off on He is Risen!

Rejoice and be glad! Today, for believers, is the most important day/celebration of the entire year!

Our theme should be that of the response after the first reading: “This is the day the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad.” Why? Because it contains the promise of everlasting life for those who are willing to embrace Jesus on His terms.

Yes, expect this to have its challenges, as we heard only this past week in the Passion accounts. And yes, we live at a time when many around us couldn’t care less, or may even be hostile to those wishing to follow Jesus. So, more often than not, we find it necessary to swim against the current.

We must ever keep the vision in our minds, love in our hearts, and the plea for perseverance in our prayers.  Why? Because we have heard and accepted the good news: He has died for us and is now risen, conquering death, so that we might do the same!
