And it’s here…Easter week. Am I the only one excited about having 3 services Easter morning? I hope not. I’m really looking forward to it. Easter is always a special day in the life of our church, but having 3 services to lead just makes it even better. Why you ask? Because Easter Sunday is just different. There is an excitement to Easter Sunday that you just don’t get the rest of the year. People want to celebrate the Risen Savior and they come ready to sing, shout, lift their hands, and cry out to Jesus. People smile more on Easter. They sing out more on Easter. They lift their hands more easily on Easter. And I can’t wait! And the fact that we get to do it 3 times just makes it better.
I’m also excited that we will be presenting a brand new song on Easter Sunday. It’s called “Forever” and it’s by Kari Jobe. I believe that the church is really going to like it and that God is going to use it in a powerful way as we celebrate the empty tomb. Here is a link to Kari Jobe singing it:
