It’s a matter of death and life.

His. For you.

It was the most important week in history. Jesus was rejected, condemned, nailed to a tree and died. He rose from the dead and appeared to a number of men and women. They heard Him speak, they touched His body, they saw the wounds left by the crucifixion. They believed God raised Him from the dead.

One of them wrote: “These things are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing, you may have life in His name” (John 20:31).

Every year, believers in Jesus come together, open the Scriptures and hear the account of the eye witnesses to all the events of that astounding week. We read what they wrote, that we might also believe in Him. We read it aloud and preach and sing it in faith.

We pray that you also will come to believe in Jesus and what He did for you, and that you will share our joy. Because He died and rose for you.

What happened to Jesus wasn’t just another event in the long series of travesties that befall good people trying to make this sad world a better place. This was different. Jesus went to His cross crying out to us: “I do this because I love you. I do this to forgive you. I do this to wipe out your sin. I do this to destroy your death.”

Love like that blows us away. It can only come from the Son of God. It’s a love mightier than all the mess we’ve made of our lives, and stronger even than death itself.

Join us this week as we gather one more time to hear and ponder, to proclaim and sing and celebrate the most remarkable week in human history.

It really is a matter of death and life.

His. For you.
