THE ROAD TO EASTER
This week we celebrate one of the most documented events in human history – the death, burial and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. The historians of the first century never doubted that Jesus rose from the dead. It was a known fact that was testified by Jesus’ disciples and witten of by non-Christian reporters. The resurrection was central to the gospel message. In fact Paul wrote to the Corinthians, “Now if Christ is preached that He has been raised from the dead, how do some among you say that there is no resurrection of the dead? But if there is no resurrection of the dead, then Christ is not risen. And if Christ is not risen, then our preaching is empty and your faith is also empty.” (1 Corinthians 15:12-14).
Statistics tells us that most people are open to accepting an invitation to come to church at Easter. Over the next few days, Worship Life Calvary Chapel has provided several opportunities for you to invite your friends to come and hear the gospel. Wednesday Seder Dinner with Bob Probert, Good Friday Service with Cherri Keaggy and our Easter Together Services on Easter Sunday. I’m also putting on a Night of Worship at The Good Earth Coffee Shop in Lake Forest with Shineyhead, Brenda Harp, David Ostrea and the Worship Life Team. Date is April 15 and time is 7:30 – 10:00 pm. It is my prayer that you take advantage of these opportunities to be a life changing influence to your friends, neighbors, family and co-workers by simply inviting them to come to church. In preparation for the events of Easter, Worship Life will be joining with six other churches for a PRAYER WALK throughout San Clemente this Saturday from 9 am to 12 pm. We have designated 50 locations that will be divided amongst all the folks that turn up to pray. Nothing happens in the Kingdom of God without prayer. Come and join us. We will be meeting at Heritage Christian Fellowship at 8:45 am for instructions.
As we enter the Easter season where we are remembering the death and resurrection of Jesus, I pray that the power of God’s forgiveness would be unleashed in your life as you realize that your sins have been washed away by the blood of Jesus Christ.
IMPORTANT EASTER SERVICE INFORMATION: WE WILL NOT BE MEETING at Vista Del Mar School on Easter April 24, 2001. We will be joining the Body of Christ in San Clemente as part of the Easter Together Celebration. We will provide opportunities for you to bring your normal Sunday tithes and offerings for Worship Life at the Seder Dinner and at the Good Friday Service. You are also invited to send in your offering to the church office by mail or bring it the following week to services. CLICK HERE for a link to all our Easter Events.
Roxie and I are praying for you…
P.S. Starting Sunday, I’ve put together a daily devotion called – The Road To Easter. Each day you will be sent a scripture to meditate on and a prayer for the day. I pray this blesses you.
