SOUTHERN BAPTIST CHURCH IN WAHIAWA, HAWAII
Easter is THE time to celebrate!
On the first Easter Sunday women went to the tomb of Jesus and found that their worst nightmare had given way to joy one could never imagine. Jesus had risen from the dead!
The great news of Easter is not just an ancient story with a happy ending. It is Jesus proving once and for all that HE IS THE RESURRECTION AND THE LIFE and those who believe in Him will also live forever. Jesus promised it in John 3:16 - ...that whoever believes in him will not perish but have everlasting life. Jesus proved it once and for all when He conquered death. Jesus is alive and so are we!
As followers of Jesus we are the Easter people. We face even life's toughest of challenges in the knowledge that we serve a risen savior.
Jesus said it like this: "I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full" (John 10:10b). Jesus brings us life, life that lasts forever and life that is full right here and right now. Now that is truly something to celebrate!
Here at First Baptist Church we celebrate the life we have in Jesus every Sunday.
