I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures…. (Corinthians 15:3-4)
Blessed Easter! Easter means the world to us, doesn’t it? As Easter people, we are born again to living hope (I Peter 1:3), gospel confidence that all God’s promises are real and true and ours, because Jesus Christ is, in fact, risen from the dead. Our issues of first importance, the central facts of history, are these: Christ has died, been buried, and bodily risen to life again on the third day, all according to the promises of Scripture. Because of Easter, our faith and life itself are not in vain. We live as Easter people, confident of forgiveness and life in the Risen Christ, cultivating hope in the face of sadness and doubt. We are motivated to mission, even as the first Christians were, by Easter, compelled by Christ’s resurrection to live and share the gospel. And we can endure because of Easter, knowing that our lives and labors are not in vain, for Jesus is already beginning to make all things new in and through us.
At Mission to North America, it is our privilege to celebrate the good news of Easter with you and to urge the church to continue to step forward in our mission with Jesus in the certainty and power of his resurrection.
