As we finish our Lenten season and move into our Easter Joy, I want to remind everyone what a blessing we have received in this Holy season. I pray that you have grown spiritually during your Lenten Season and you now recognize more of Christ’s presence in your life; in the people and events of your everyday life. God is alive and is working in and through you to build up the body of Christ here on earth.
This season didn’t have to happen. We need to realize how much God loves us in this season and to know the acts that were done out of His total unselfish love for us. It is only because of HIS love for us that we have the ability to love others in the same fashion. The Lenten season is amazing. It is because of His love for us, that we have the privilege of loving others in the same unselfish, unconditional, and selfless way. And because of His love, we know that love wins in the end. “We are convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future nor any powers can separate us from the love of God.” Romans 8:38-40.
How blessed we are because we not only get to celebrate God’s Unending Love, we have the privilege to live it and share it with others.
As you celebrate this season with your loved ones, know that God is with you and wants nothing more for you than to grow in your love for him and one another. May you receive all the blessings that God has in store for you. Happy Easter to you and all those you love.
May The Lord Bless and Keep You,
Rev. Stephen W. Barch
