They left that place and passed through Galilee. Jesus did not want anyone to know where they were, because He was teaching His disciples. He said to them, The Son of Man is going to be delivered into the hands of men. They will kill him, and after three days he will rise. Mark 9:30-32
An Easter poem
O God of the universe, you shed your glory,
your majesty, your omnipotence to become human, as Jesus the Christ,
to get close to us, to connect with us, to be our role model and guide for living.
O God of the universe, you became the human Christ Jesus
to know us, to feel all we feel, to show us how much you love us by taking within yourself all our sins.
O God of the universe, you felt not just one person’s pain
but the pain of all of us, to wash us clean and bond with us, your creation, your children.
O God of the universe, you proved your transcendent holy power by rising from the dead,
a sign that all of us who believe in You will also rise to be with You eternally.
Yes . . .Jesus is risen as he told them . . . Alleluia!
To all our Woodland Beach Church community, and beyond . . . have a wonderfully Joy-filled, blessed, and Happy Easter as we celebrate our glorious redemption through the passion, death, and Resurrection of Jesus.
