Welcome to Resurrection Sunday!
While Good Friday is bitter-sweet, Resurrection Sunday is all celebration as we remember the greatest ever victory – Jesus defeating our ultimate enemy, death! We don’t just remember something spectacular that happened a long time ago, we celebrate something ongoing that we can share in today!

What a Beautiful Name
Bible Reading – 1 Peter 1:3-5
3 All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. It is by his great mercy that we have been born again, because God raised Jesus Christ from the dead. Now we live with great expectation, 4 and we have a priceless inheritance – an inheritance that is kept in heaven for you, pure and undefiled, beyond the reach of change and decay. 5 And through your faith, God is protecting you by his power until you receive this salvation, which is ready to be revealed on the last day for all to see.
Matthew 28 Easter Prayer
“Do not be afraid,”
God, I hand over to You those things that make me so afraid. Resurrect the parts of my faith stifled by fear.
“I know that you are looking for Jesus”
God, when my soul is searching, help me to turn to You.
“He has risen,”
God, the fact that Jesus is risen should fill me with gratitude, wonder and commitment. Help me to live today as if I really believe this with every part of my life.
“just as he said,”
Jesus, You keep Your promises. Help me trust You more, obey You more and resemble You more.
“Come and see,”
Jesus, You had the angels invite the women in to see for themselves that You had risen. You invite me into these personal revelations every day. Forgive me for sometimes rushing about and forgetting to come and see for myself … You, Your Word, Your insights.
“Then go quickly and tell his disciples,”
Jesus, I don’t want to be a secret keeper with my faith. I want to be a bold and gracious truth proclaimer. For You. With You. Because of You. Me, the unwanted girl whom You loved, redeemed and wanted.
In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
