For Christians looking back to that first Easter Sunday, it is indeed a happy day! If Jesus had not died, I would still be separated from my Creator by sin. But sin has been paid for, and my Creator is now my Heavenly Father. If Jesus had not risen from the dead, He would not be helping us today. But He is, and for those who trust in Him, He has changed their lives. Well, He certainly changed mine.
So after Wendy had read psalm 80, we sang O Happy Day. Several times! And after further praise and worship, we had communion. I had read 1 Corinthians 10 earlier that morning, and communion is mentioned. I read it again. We remembered the crucifixion and resurrection. Wendy read Deuteronomy 32, where in the opening verses, is ‘Ascribe greatness to our God’. We considered. How great is our God – O Happy Day!
We prayed for members of Liberty, and concluded with more praise and worship.
We look forward to joining with others for these times.
