Greetings in His Holy Name! I hope you are safe and well. As the Passion Week nears, we remember how difficult it was being prohibited from having indoor worship celebrations last Easter Sunday. Take this opportunity to remind all those in your churches that this Easter Sunday service is not an ordinary Sunday. This special day commemorates a time when the early believers were distraught and fearful of their uncertain future, but with the turning of a brand new Sunday morning everything changed! From the first shouts of “He is alive!”, to the redemption story being told throughout the centuries, all believers emphatically declared,
“IT IS JUST AS HE SAID”!(Matthew 28:6)
Each year Resurrection Sunday elevates our faith and our spirit is strengthen when the message of His promises is preached, “on the Third Day He will rise”. His promises bring an enthusiastic response as we clap, sing and shout Hallelujah! We may have endured a difficult year and we continue to persevere, but I am convinced and trust that God’s truth prevails. When God says it, it will be done just as He said! May your celebration be of great joy and worship unto the Lord and may all who attend be blessed to overflowing.
Gratefully in His service,
Rev. Ben Refuerzo
IAFB General Superintendent
