Are you ready for Easter?

Easter is just around the corner. For Christians, this is special day that looks back at the biggest event in human history that has given us so much hope, love, peace and joy. It is Jesus' death on a cross that paid the penalty for our sin and His resurrection gives us hope for new life. Jesus has defeated our enemies of Satan, sin and death...forever.

This is a great day for celebration and a great day for inviting friends. It's interesting that when the two Mary's were met by an angel (presumably) at the empty tomb of Jesus, they were told to go tell the other disciples...."And he (the angel) said to them, “Do not be alarmed. You seek Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He has risen; he is not here. See the place where they laid him. 7 But go, tell his disciples and Peter that he is going before you to Galilee. There you will see him, just as he told you."

We should also go and tell others! Tell them about empty tomb. Tell them about the hope found in Jesus.

I would like to encourage you to invite 10 of your friends, neighbors, coworkers or relatives on Sunday, April 12. After all, they are more likely to come on Easter than any other day.
