The easter season

The Easter season is upon us and this includes Good Friday. I'm not exactly sure why it is called Good Friday but I think it is because of the good gift of salvation made possible by our Lord's willing sacrifice of himself on the cross. Every disciple of Christ needs to spend time on Good Friday thanking Christ for his sacrifice.

Easter Sunday is our celebration of the great news of our Lord's resurrection and it validates everything else Christ did. It proves he is the only Messiah. Henry Morris said,, "The bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead is the crowning proof of Christianity. If the resurrection did not take place, then Christianity is a false religion. If it did take place, then Christ is God and the Christian faith is the absolute truth."

The resurrection did take place. In Luke 24:5-6 we read "...Why do you look for the living among the dead? He is not here; he has risen!..."

Have you received Christ as your Savior? If so I trust you will celebrate his resurrection on Easter Sunday.

The resurrection message

Easter has passed but the resurrection message continues. "He is risen" is the message for every day, not just Easter Sunday. 

The disciples preached the Easter message. In Acts 2:24 Peter proclaimed, "But God raised him from the dead, freeing him from the agony of death, because it was impossible for death to keep its hold on him".

The Church today continues to preach the  Easter message. It is the gospel. It is the only message of eternal life. In reality it is the only message of the Church.

What do we do with this message? First we must believe it. Secondly we must proclaim it. We also must live it.  What are you doing with the Resurrection message? Do you believe it? Are you proclaiming it to others? Are you living it in your own life?

I hope to see you soon at East Pointe Baptist Church.

Summer Schedule Change

I am excited about our new summer Sunday morning schedule. Our summer times are 9:30am worship and 10:45am Sunday School. This schedule begins Sunday, June 10. It will allow us to have a church staff meet and greet time with our worship guests. This summer schedule will also give us some more Sunday School opportunities. 

If you attend EPBC please share this with your friends. If you do not yet attend EPBC I look forward to meeting soon at EPBC!
