He is Risen Indeed!

He is Risen
The Resurrection of Our Lord | April 2019
The Lord is risen indeed!
Why do you seek the living among the dead?  He is not here, but has risen. 
Luke 24: 5-6

The central and unshakeable truth of the Bible is that Jesus has risen from the dead!  Conquering death and the grave, our Lord Jesus Christ rose from the dead on the third day and as a result the kingdom of heaven is open to all believers.

The Apostle Paul wrote, “…if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.”  Romans 10:9

Believing in your heart that God raised Jesus from the dead is much more than accepting a fact. It means being confident that God is for you, that he has closed ranks with you, that he is transforming your life, and that he will save you for eternal joy.

May your confession of the risen Jesus Christ reassure you of God’s love and grace each day of your earthly life.

Almighty God, who through thine only-begotten Son Jesus Christ hast overcome death, and opened unto us the gate of everlasting life: We humbly beseech thee, that as by thy special grace preventing us thou dost put into our minds good desires, so by thy continual help we may bring the same to good effect; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end. Amen.

Christian deaths are spiraling in Nigeria as militant Fulani herdsmen and Boko Haram terrorists escalate their attacks, according to reports from religious liberty watchdog groups.
Almighty God, who seest that we have no power of ourselves to help ourselves: Keep us both outwardly in our bodies, and inwardly in our souls; that we may be defended from all adversities which may happen to the body, and from all evil thoughts which may assault and hurt the soul; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
[Book of Common Prayer 1662]

Lent Reading?
Consider:  The Forgotten Cross:  
Some Neglected Aspects of the Cross of Christ (2015)
 

   

This is a short book of expositions from the Bible, examining the cross and… success (1 Corinthians 1), service (Mark 10:32-45), suffering (1 Peter 212-25), separation (Ephesians 2:11-22), sanctification (Titus 2:1-15), and supremacy (Colossians 2:6-23)… while many have been preoccupied fighting battles over penal substitutionary atonement, we have often neglected other vital aspects of the death of Jesus.
CANA East believes in prayer
May my prayer be set before you like incense; may the lifting up of my hands be like the evening sacrifice. ( Psalm 141:2)

Jesus still says, “GO”

World Mission Sunday February 10, 2019

Greetings the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Our Lord Jesus Christ commissioned his disciples to go and proclaim the gospel. This was His commission then and it is still His commission to us noEastSeal.orangew! People in our communities, nation and world are all in desperate need of knowing the love of God and the forgiveness of their sins. Alongside this commission,our mission includes serving those in need and protecting every human life (born and unborn).

God has given us the wonderful responsibility to be salt to the earth and light to the world.Christians are those who can impact their communities and the world more than anyone else because we have been entrusted with the message of Jesus Christ, crucified, risen and coming again.

This year’s mission conference and synod ‘Together in the Harvest’ (May 16-18) will help to equip us in this mission to the world. I hope to see many of you there.

On this Sunday, when we consider our mission to the world, let us rededicate ourselves to the mission to which we have all been called and make known the good news of Jesus through word and deed. And he said to them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest. Luke 10:2

Jesus still says, ‘go’.
