Burton Easter Mission

Marian went solo to minister in song at the Burton Town Mission today. I don’t mind mentioning the fact this wasn’t the only fellowship that asked for her to sing this morning. Nice to have a popular Mrs!

I often joke about what a nightmare it was to come up with a different angle on the same Christmas story to the same folk at the same time every single year, but I never had any such problem at Easter! What Jesus did on the cross and all that surrounded the cross you could devote your whole life to studying and with each lesson you learn you will simply realise how much more there is to go. It is no wonder those who hate God will do all in their power to get us talking about Easter Bunnies and chocolate eggs instead of the glorious Gospel of our Risen Lord.

Strictly speaking we celebrate Easter every time we break bread, but nonetheless I think there is something powerful about a designated service once a year to celebrate the cross. It was on the cross that Jesus took punishment for your sin and gave you an opportunity to walk with The Lord despite all you have done. It was at the cross that all you deserved was put on him that you might walk free from that guilt and fear. It was on the cross that your failure to reach perfection was dealt with and along with it your excuse of committing your life to God ‘later’ when you’ve got your act together. Friend, or indeed enemy, you never will get your act together. If you want proof just join a church or denomination! If that won’t convince you then meet me, another sinner… but saved by Grace. You’ll never get it right, hence the cross instead of the tick, but even if you do it won’t make up for all you’ve done wrong already! The answer came through Jesus dying on that cross and rising again so that you too could be set free.

Thanks to Jesus the Cross is behind us!
