Dear Saints of Abundant Harvest Fellowship Philippines, friends, brethren and partners,
There is much joy and celebration as we remember the resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. For Salvation has come to us, freed from the curse of the law and made whole through the sacrifice of our King. Today, we remember the great sacrifice of our Lord & Savior Jesus Christ, the price He paid for our freedom and the hope we hold unto as His resurrection signifies the change in our hearts and the eternality of holiness in our lives if we stand focused on Him. This day holds much importance to all who stand to believe, for as Christ was raised up from the dead; so are we who have been dead in sin was reborn from the ashes of iniquity as New Creations by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Romans 1:4-5 states – “And Jesus Christ our Lord was shown to be the Son of God when God powerfully raised him from the dead by means of the Holy Spirit. Through Christ, God has given us the privilege and authority to tell Gentiles everywhere what God has done for them, so that they will believe and obey him, bringing glory to his name”
The resurrection is the corner stone of our salvation, the basis of our Renewal, Sanctification and beckons the day of Glorification. I ask you to come to the Lord, stand up for Jesus and defend the gospel through our words, through our actions, through our lifesong. Let us not be ashamed by God’s goodness but let us proclaim His faithfulness to all. Friends, I call out to you, my dear brothers and sisters-I call out to you not to be content with tidbits of the word, calling out to you to stop fidgeting and dilly dallying; today is the day we put our foot down, choose never to be the same again, today we stand up for Jesus. True Christians in words and actions, true believers empowered by His love, unshakable by His grace.
Today friends let us rejoice for our King has risen, today let us stand for resolve that we will ultimately stand for Jesus Christ, defending the gospel and shining His light through our lives, devoid of contradiction and humanistic trivialities but empowered by the word of God and the power of the Holy Spirit. God bless you dear friends and may the Lord shine His light on you and your family!
