HE HAS RISEN! ALLELULIA. This is the joyful sound at this springtime. The time of new life, new growth, new hope. The time to celebrate the Risen Christ.   The time to celebrate his rising up out of deviewpoints cross logo jpegath, and into new, eternal life. He will never die, he has risen.     
 “Be filled with The Holy Spirit, and sing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs among yourselves, making music to the Lord in your hearts. And always give thanks for everything to God the father in the name of Jesus Christ (Ephesians 5 verse 19)    the same mighty power that raised Christ from the dead is now at work in us who believe. 
This is the joy of Easter. St Paul prays “When I think of the wisdom and scope of God’s plan I fall down on my knees and pray to the Father, the Creator of everything in heaDove rightven and earth. I pray that through His glorious, unlimited resources he will give you mighty inner strength through his Holy Spirit.
And I pray that Christ will be more and more at home in your hearts as you trust In Him. May your roots go down deep into the soil of Gods marvellous love? And may you have the power to understand how long, how wide, how high, and how deep his love really is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is so great you will never fully understand it? 
Then you will be filled with the fullness of life and glory that comes from God. Now glory is to God. By his mighty power at work within us, he is able to accomplish infinitely more than we would ever dare to ask or hope. May he be given glory in the church and in Jesus Christ forever and ever through endless ages? Amen”
This is my prayer for you this Easter. He is risen, he is risen indeed.
