I never read the book Great Expectations but I certainly have them for church tomorrow. The excitment I have for Easter Sunday at Fairwood reminds me of how I felt as a kid on Christmas Eve. I could hardly sleep, the anticipation was far too great.
For some people, this Easter Sunday will be the day that changes the course of their eternity. As a church we have prayed, fasted, and believed for God to breakthrough in our lives and in the lives of our family, friends, and neighbors. The cool part is, God wants it to happen even more than we do.
For God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. God sent his Son into the world not to judge the world, but to save the world through him. (NLT)
I’m encouraged… thrilled really, just to get to help make it happen. I am confident God is going to do some incredible things tomorrow. His Son Jesus is Grace personified, and tomorrow Grace will be at work changing people forever.
Let’s have fun tomorrow, let’s be part of something bigger than ourselves. Let’s hope together, pray together, serve together, and watch together as God does what only He can do.
