Friday's here but Sunday's coming!

I just looked at my calendar and realised Easter is just six weeks away. Easter came as a surprise to believers in Bible times as well. No matter how many times the Lord told his disciples that He would die and rise again the third day - they couldn't seem to comprehend. They were ready to see Him as King, Messiah, Promised One - but suffering, death and resurrection - that was unthinkable!

This Spring season we will take a break from our journey through the Old Testament - which prophesied that Messiah would suffer and die for our sins - and spend some time reading the New Testament passages leading up to Good Friday and Resurrection Sunday. Jesus died for our sins on Friday - but He conquered death on Sunday- so that those of us who receive Him need not fear death any more.

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16 KJV
