You know there is something amazing about having a relationship with Jesus Christ. For us connected and serve in a local church or ministry, the Easter season is consumed with reaching out and touching the community, neighbors and family hoping that maybe some of them will join us on Sunday morning. I can tell you that we at Parkway Christian Center are no different and have put forth an incredible effort this year to touch more people than ever before by way of videos, postcards and special invitations. I am so appreciative for all of the time and effort that many have given to make this EASTER WEEKEND CELEBRATION such a success. As a pastor I could not be more blessed than to serve with the church family that attends PCC.
But this afternoon it wasn’t all the planning and making sure everything looked just right for the weekend that overwhelmed me. It was the thought of “it is the Friday”. I just began to weep when I realized the price that has been paid for our redemption. But not just our redemption; the power of cross has paid the price for CHANGE today. I just kept thinking about the people who I have seen CHANGED because of what Jesus Christ did for us on the cross. It is mind-blowing! And it is worth stopping in the midst of all of our busyness and reflecting on what Jesus did for all of us on that Friday afternoon over 2000 years ago at Golgotha.
I am really looking forward to the PCC Easter Eggstravaganza and watching all of the children playing and hunting for eggs. There is going to be so much laughter, excitement and fun. But what I am really praying for on this FRIDAY night is for those coming to our campus tomorrow and Sunday to have an encounter with the ONE who CHANGES lives.
Thank you Jesus for changing my life and allowing me to see your power that changes lives who call on your name!
