Easter weekend is arriving later this year, April 4th. This can potentially be helpful for a couple of reasons. First, Kentucky Springtime weather is very unpredictable. We have a much better chance of nicer weather in early April than March. Second, with COVID19 vaccines now being rolled out for everyone this will likely bring new opportunities for more people to gather in person & online for Easter.
This weekend at Journey Community Christian Church we begin a three week series leading into Easter 2021. When the obvious, no longer is obvious, we have to talk about the obvious. Jesus Christ, Savior of the world is the Main Event of ever Easter weekend. This may appear a no-brainer but returning to basics once more, this series has three weekends for us to clarify WHO is JESUS? HOW can I know JESUS? WHY is it essential to make a decision about JESUS?
Not everyone knows what the “big fuss” is all about at Easter time. There is more to this story than Easter baskets and the Easter Bunny. We have to tell them in a helpful manner what Easter is really about. This weekend at Journey Church we will consider the big forever change Jesus wants to make in every person’s life. Jesus forgives ALL our sins and guides us and grows us to become a better version of ourselves.
Before you decide how you are going to spend your Easter this year, just pray about it, first. This could be the perfect time for you to RETURN in-person if you are ready. It might also be the right time for an easy INVITE to a friend or family member to join you. If YOU, or someone you know has never made a personal decision to be BAPTIZED into JESUS this could be that time.
INVITING someone to Easter worship is not as hard as you might imagine. It can be as simple as giving a terrific review on social media of your favorite eating place. Just post a positive thumbs up and tell others to check things out at Journey Church Cynthiana or any Church on Easter where Jesus is the Main Event. GOD will take care of the rest.
This has been a crazy year everywhere, for everyone. People have gotten sick, school has been interrupted, vacations have been postponed and even grocery shopping has been a hassle. Our normal life has been abruptly interrupted and it has been difficult to get things moving again. Like sitting in a chair too long, we need to stretch our leg muscles.
I realize, people are just people. It is tricky to not become overly anxious and nervous about so many uncertainties and “what-if” questions which linger from a COVID 19 health pandemic year. God is bigger than any problem, even death. This may be what all of us need to hear right now.
Join us the next three weekends, for the EASTER series JESUS… come EARLY, be ready to worship God. HE is bigger than our problems. Dude: This may be what we need more than anything right now: A little perspective and hope from God and His Word at Easter 2021.
