“Hope Arises” was the name and topic of this past Sunday’s sermon at Shepherd Church in Porter Ranch, as we celebrated Easter, the resurrection of Jesus Christ, our Lord and savior, who sacrificed his life so that are sins could be forgiven.
Many things seem impossible in the midst of chaos and in many respects, they really are. Whether one is dealing with a broken marriage, infidelity, financial or legal troubles, disease or sickness, there is one thing that has withstood the test of time — and that is hope. While every man dies because of father time, those who believe that God raised Jesus Christ from the dead will live eternal life. How do we know this? Because, the resurrection proves this, and it says so in the bible.
This tells us that with God, “all things are possible”. Pastor Dudley tells us that God specializes in the impossible. All he asks us is to Confess and Repent, Believe in Him and through baptism, we may live a new life. Our past will be forgiven and our future will be secured. Isn’t that something — that is hope and salvation in its purest form.
Happy Easter to all…
