One of the beautiful surprises on Easter Sunday was a powerful artistic rendition of the tomb, with a stone that actually rolled, and a picture of life bursting forth from behind. During the second hour, Pastor Mike welcomed the artist, Vladimir Gering, to share the inspiration behind the work. Powerful!
"When I have broken every promise. . . when I have missed every mark. . . And I have found myself so far from where you are. Then there's the cross. . . A bridge for all my sins. . . The door that lets me in. . . The way back home when I am lost."
Our worship team shared this powerful song as part of the Good Friday service. May it minister to you this Easter, with the words and truths diving deep into your soul.
Good Friday is the climax of God's love on display in the form of a cross. Pastor Levi takes a few minutes to share from his own journey, and how the entire life of Jesus comes to bear on this day. When all is said and done, our forgiveness is assured, and our spot in God's family is secure.
