What Jesus Did For You

by Pastor Barry Yates

Millions and millions of Christians around the world celebrate Easter every year.  But for far too many of us the story has become boring and rote.  We have the basic facts down.  Jesus was arrested.  He was crucified. And three days later, God raised Him from the dead.

Yet we miss something very important.  We miss what turns Easter from a one-dimensional holiday to a multi-dimensional, life-transforming way of life.  People like Zacchaeus, a descendant of Abraham, was an example of Jesus' personal, earthly mission to bring salvation to the lost.  Mary Magdalene, a Jewish woman who traveled with Jesus as one of His followers.  How about the crowd of people who meet Jesus as He came into the city of Jerusalem; and the final week when Jesus faces all those who judge Him.

But, we miss that the story of the Resurrection is not just Jesus’ story — it’s our story as well.

Mark your calendar March 11th through April 1st and come celebrate our Rising Lord!

Make Every Day Count!
