“My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:  and I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.”  John 10:27-28 ( KJV)

It is the most important day on the calendar.  For Christians, Easter surpasses all other holidays.    The Sunday before Easter, Palm Sunday, is the day Jesus rode into Jerusalem on a donkey amidst palm branches.  Good Friday marks the crucifixion of Jesus.  But, the day Jesus rose from the dead, which we celebrate as Easter, is the most important event in all of history!

In recent weeks, the promise of salvation has been shared again and again in the media with the passing of America’s Pastor, Dr. Billy Graham.  It is the same message Dr. Graham shared for over half a century with people all over the world.

As we celebrate this most special season of the year with new growth and new life all around, may you experience Easter anew with family and friends and with the One who bore the cross for our sins that we may have eternal life.  Whether you worship in a traditional church setting, in a contemporary church service, or at a satellite campus of a mega church, may you find immeasurable joy this Easter in God’s house.  Easter—the hope, the promise of eternal life in Christ Jesus.  Rejoice!  He is risen!!
