April 21 Easter Sunday Message
Christians celebrate the resurrection of Christ Jesus everyday. Risen can be summed up in four words, COME SEE GO TELL. As Christian believers we celebrate what Christ has done for belivers daily. The resurrection established Jesus as the Son of God. In conquering death for those who trust in Jesus' death and resurrection, "death is swallowed up in victory." Any person who chooses to follow Jesus receives a new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ, and the blessing of eternal life.
Sleepless in gethsemane
Gethsemane (olive press), is where Jesus Christ came to pray. “Yet not as I will but as you will”. Jesus Christ’s soul was crushed with grief to the point of death. The weight of the sins of the world pressed down upon him like a heavy slab of rock pressed down on olives in their baskets. His sweat, "like drops of blood falling from to the ground" (Luke 22:44), flowed from him like olive oil as it was squeezed out and flowed into the pit of an olive press.
