For me, the best time of the year is Easter. Yes, I love the summer heat, and I enjoy the fall (especially in Ontario with all the fall colours), but the Easter season is truly my favourite time of the year because spiritually it touches me in the deepest way. The message of the cross is a message of love and forgiveness--the love of God in sending his only Son to die in our place. And the hope of Easter is the message of new life--a spiritual "spring" in our life where Christ did not stay in the grave but He is risen from the dead and He offers new life for everyone who would put their faith and trust in Him.
Typically Easter sees people being baptised in churches. Our church is no different. We will be seeing people follow the Lord Jesus Christ in this wonderful activity this Sunday at EKBC. And We will hear the testimonies of forgiveness of sin and new life and hope in Jesus.
I found this great video that I'm going to show at our church on Easter Sunday. It's about "coming awake" spiritually by surrendering to the risen Lord Jesus Christ. As you watch the video and listen to the song, would you consider your spiritual state? Do you know Jesus? Have you asked Him to forgive you of your sins? Do you know the hope of salvation and eternal life? No sin is too deep, no person is too far gone--God's grace reaches even the lowest and brings us up to newness of life in Him. II Corinthians 5:17 says, "Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come." Do you yearn for a "fresh start"? Do you yearn for "newness of life"? come to Christ. He will make this the best time of the year.
