APRIL FOCUS: Easter Season: During the entire month of March and into April many of us have been meditating upon the sacrifice that Christ made at the cross to pay the penalty for our sins. April 24th we will stop and reflect on this event as we celebrate and say together: “He is risen” and hear our friend’s response “He is risen indeed”.
What does Easter mean to you personally? Recently Amanda DeWitt captured this whole scene in her Tapestry Blog: When Something Dies. In John 12:24 Jesus puts it this way, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit.” Not only was Jesus giving the Greeks a glimpse into his upcoming death, but he was also calling his disciples to an upturned perspective. He continues saying, “Whoever loves his life loses it, and whoever hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life” (John 12:25). HE is risen…HE is risen indeed!
