My Beloved Son In Whom I Am Pleased! Pastor Jim DeVore

Happy Easter!  He is Risen, He is Risen Indeed.  He is Risen, He is Risen Indeed.  He is Risen!  He is Risen Indeed!  That is one of my favorite moments on Easter Sunday when we recite that simple phrase . .He is Risen Indeed!  The risen Jesus Christ is the ultimate statement of God’s exclamation of Him throughout His earthly life.  Look at these verses

and a voice came out of heaven, “You are My beloved Son, in You I am well-pleased.”

(Luke 3:22)

A voice came from the cloud, saying, “This is my Son, whom I have chosen; listen to him.”

(Luke 9:35)

Though there is no recorded statement from God at the resurrection, (As if the resurrection wasn’t statement enough!) you can imagine God shouting “You are My beloved Son, in You I am well-pleased.” (Luke 3:22)  I so look forward to us rejoicing with God on the resurrection of His Beloved Son this Easter and for all eternity!  There are so many opportunities this coming week to celebrate so be sure to join us for all of them, from the special communion service on Thursday, to Good Friday Service, and finally to Easter Sunday at 8, 9:30, or 11!.  And of course, bring friends and family!   On Easter Sunday if you are bringing guests then come to whatever service is best for them.  If you are coming without guests then we encourage you to attend the 8 a.m. service!  WE are offering a full children’s program each service.  Take you babies and preschoolers to the nursery and bring your grade-schoolers into the service with you.  After the second song we will exit them to children’s church.
