Worship Arts Pastor Clay Smith - He is Risen!

Some of my fondest memories of Easter are growing up in a small south Georgia town, and going to a neighbor's home every Easter Sunday morning for Sunrise Service. Our neighbors had a nice lake behind their house, and we would all gather around the lake for worship bright and early on Easter morning. As the sun would come up over the horizon and shine across the lake, we would sing songs of victory and read scriptures of life and resurrection and praise! After a while, one man would say, "He is risen!" And all the rest of us would shout, "Hallelujah - so are we!"

That's Easter in a nutshell. Because our Lord has conquered sin, death, hell, and the grave, that means we as His children have conquered all that mess too! HALLELUJAH!

Easter has always been my favorite time of year. Now don't get me wrong, I love the splendor and the glory of Christmas. But I love the hope, the assurance, and the decisive culmination of the plan of God that Easter brings. As a child of God, Easter means I don't have to wonder, I don't have to speculate, I don't have to cross my fingers when it comes to life in the here and now or life in the there and then. My hope is built on nothing less than Jesus' blood and righteousness!

It has been rightly said that every day to a believer is Easter, and that is true! But Easter is a time where we as God's children get to focus on the victory that is ours through Christ and celebrate in a special and meaningful way!

We have such an incredible Easter Sunday planned here at ERBC for April 1. I hope that you will pray NOW about who the Lord would have you bring with you to church for our Easter morning time of celebration. It's going to be an uplifting, God-honoring, Jesus-focused, Spirit-empowered day that you will not want to miss.

I hope you're ready to shout the victory that HE IS RISEN and HALLELUJAH - SO ARE WE!

May Jesus Christ be praised!
