I won’t tell you that not going to Easter service will send you to Hell. I won’t tell you that not going to Easter service will change God’s love for you. And, I won’t tell you that not going to Easter service means you don’t believe in God or His one and only Son, Jesus. What I will tell you is that Easter is a big deal.
I’m convinced that too many believers belittle this historical and life changing event. We fill ball fields and stadiums cheering for our favorite team. We go out of our way to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries, and other signature events. Yet, will we have the same enthusiasm and devotion this Easter?
You see, there is a reason that even secular history books acknowledge the magnitude of Jesus’ birth, death, and resurrection. (B.C.) Before Christ mankind didn’t have a chance, was hopeless, and was destined for Hell. (A.D.) After Christ, every man, woman, boy, & girl was given a chance. A chance to repent, to believe, and to receive eternal life through Jesus Christ our Savior & Lord.
This Easter you could choose to stay home. But, the moment you fully realize all that Christ has done for you, you should rethink your decision. You will realize as I do now that I can’t ever thank God enough for sending His son Jesus to die for my sins. Jesus changed my life forever and it doesn’t matter what you’ve done in your past, Jesus can change yours too.
I pray you make your way to an Easter Celebration. Not just to say you did and take a family photo. But, to celebrate the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. To say, thank you Jesus for I am a life that was changed and eternally grateful.
Should you not have a church home, I want to personally invite you to Refuge Church. We have four identical worship opportunities this Easter. Saturday, March 26th 5pm & 7pm. Sunday, March 27th 9:15am & 11am. We’re located at 203 Eddie Chasteen Dr, Walterboro. Directly across the street from Wells Fargo Bank.
The dress is casual, the people are friendly and the service will have incredible impact on your life. I promise we’ll change the way you think about church. During every service we have light refreshments, activities for Birth-5th graders, and no offering plate will be passed around. Come as you are, Never leave the same!
