This weekend we will celebrate the two most significant events in human history: Christ's death on a Roman cross and his subsequent resurrection three days later. There are many things to contemplate, celebrate, and savor regarding Good Friday and Easter; things that we should turn to one a regular basis. I would encourage you to reflect on this one from the Apostle Paul:
I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, 19and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is like the working of his mighty strength, which he exerted in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms.... Ephesians 1:18-20 (NIV)
Friends, the same power that the Father used in raising Christ from the dead is available to you today to live a full life of obedience, love, and joy in Jesus Christ. This weekend as you celebrate the Resurrection, remember that the same great power that the Father exerted in raising Christ from the dead is available to you today, and every day for the rest of your life!

Outside of the time spent in my role as a pastor, I spend most of my time with my family -- a good deal of that coaching various sports teams that my children are involved with.
