Good Morning May 2

According to our church liturgical calendar we are in the Easter Season. This coming Sunday is the fourth Sunday of Easter, though every Sunday is a celebration of the resurrection of our Lord. Christians have the very center of their lives in the God-given events of Good Friday and Easter Sunday. Nothing surpasses these events in the history of mankind. St. Paul will speak of the “unfathomable riches of Christ”(Ephesians 3:8); a gift that He “lavished upon us”(Ephesians 1:7-8); and the “surpassing, (or exceeding) greatness of His power toward us who believe.”(Ephesians 1:19)  We are talking about the difference this one event makes in our personal lives, the difference between being in the eternal presence of God’s love, or the unfathomable darkness of being separated from Him forever. Our God has redeemed us from sin, death, and the power of the devil, giving us a new and eternal life in Jesus Christ. In that truth every day is an Easter celebration.
