He is Risen!

Greetings in Christ!

He is Risen!

In a world of challenges such as we are facing today, isn’t it wonderful to know that we serve a risen Savior?

When Jesus arrived on the scene over 2,000 years ago things were much different than they are now in so many ways, yet the human heart is still very much the same now as it was then.

People were divided then as now as to “what” the answer is.

Those of us at Bowmansville UMC, who know Christ know that it’s less of a “what” question than a “who” question.

There’s a song written by Andrae Crouch that simply makes the statement that “Jesus is the answer for the world today.”

Even though that song was written a few years ago, Jesus is STILL the answer for this world!

While we are so thankful for the Cross of Christ, we must remember that it was the Resurrection only 3 days later that proved His sinless life and death on the Cross was valid and accepted by the Father as payment for Sin.

The Word of God tells us that through one man sin entered this world, yet it was through one man that sin’s penalty was dealt with! Romans 5:15 – “But the gift is not like the trespass. For if the many died by the trespass of the one man, how much more did God’s grace and the gift that came by the grace of the one man, Jesus Christ, overflow to the many!”

As we enter the season we celebrate the Resurrection, may we never lose sight of the fact that Jesus came to deal with sin’s awful penalty.

It is through Him that we have freedom IF we receive that work He did for us!

We’ve received life so let’s be givers of life!

Use your words to bless and encourage one another, especially during this time that people are a bit more open to hearing the Good News of the Gospel!

May you and yours have a wonderful season of celebrating the Resurrection of Christ!

For we are Easter people……think about that….

In Him, Pastor Jim
