Christ is Risen! He’s Alive. Let Us Rejoice!
Bay City Baptist Church in Green Bay is celebrating the resurrection of our Lord and Savior this coming Sunday, Easter morning. You can help spread the great news of our risen King by inviting your friends and family to the Easter Morning Pancake & Porkie Breakfast from 9:15 – 10:15 a.m. It will be followed by our Easter Celebration Service at 10:30 a.m. where a clear Gospel message will be presented.
Luke 24:1-12: Now on the first day of the week, very early in the morning, they, and certain other women with them, came to the tomb bringing the spices which they had prepared. But they found the stone rolled away from the tomb. Then they went in and did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. And it happened, as they were greatly perplexed about this, that behold, two men stood by them in shining garments. Then, as they were afraid and bowed their faces to the earth, they said to them, “Why do you seek the living among the dead? He is not here, but is risen! Remember how He spoke to you when He was still in Galilee, saying, ‘The Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again.’” And they remembered His words. Then they returned from the tomb and told all these things to the eleven and to all the rest. It was Mary Magdalene, Joanna, Mary the mother of James, and the other women with them, who told these things to the apostles. And their words seemed to them like idle tales, and they did not believe them. But Peter arose and ran to the tomb; and stooping down, he saw the linen cloths lying by themselves; and he departed, marveling to himself at what had happened.
This resurrection passage is filled with such promise and joy! As with the Christmas season, it’s easy to get caught up in the chocolate, the eggs, and the bunnies that are the default of Easter. We must remember the resurrection. And even more important, let us each share a gift that’s better than chocolate…the awesome gift of salvation!
