Easter is April 16, 2017
Maybe this is your time...
There are lots of stories in the Bible that don't make a lot of sense until you get to the end. Joseph was a guy who loved God but his brothers sold him as a slave. Jonah was told to leave his home and talk to evil murderers about God. Stephen was committed to poor people and to Jesus but he was stoned to death by an angry mob.
Timing matters a lot. When you follow the stories to the end, you learn that Joseph ended up saving a nation because he was brought there as a slave. The evil people Jonah told about God all turned away from their evil. One of the men who murdered Stephen became the greatest messenger for Christianity in history.
Anyone looking at Jesus dying on the cross would wonder how it could end up good. On Friday, it looked very bad but things changed a lot by Sunday morning. God picked the perfect time to save the world by the death and resurrection of Jesus. We call that time Easter.
Could this be your time? Could God have taken you through all that you have been through just so he could come through for you now? I hope you'll visit with us at 6pm on Easter Sunday, April 16.
