The joy of Easter is the discovery that because Jesus, though crucified, is alive again, there can be no doubt that this Man is indeed the Christ – the Messiah!
Stf 293 All Heaven declares the Glory of the risen Lord
This Jesus who was crucified is the Christ!
Reflect prayerfully upon the words of Stf 274 Jesus Christ I think upon your sacrifice.
Stf 353 Jesus is Lord, creation's voice proclaims it.
The power and love of God may be revealed to humanity through creation, or through the death and resurrection of Jesus on the cross, but something stops people seeing it, until some action, a radical offering of love opens our eyes.
Prayers – submitted by Lyn. Lord we praise you for every single act of good that is done, for every ounce of love that is shown, for every kind deed, act of grace and act of mercy.
Heavenly Father, look on us in your mercy. Our world is in such turmoil that we dread to switch on the news. Somewhere along the line we have made a mess of it. We pollute and defile it with our way of life, we ask your forgiveness. Help us to realise that you have provided lavish gifts for our use and not our abuse. Help us to understand that unless we are led by the Holy Spirit there will be no peace. Lord, let there be peace on earth and let it begin with us. Spirit of God hover over the chaos and bring from it life and hope; in Jesus’ name, Amen.
The Lords Prayer
Stf 296 Christ has risen while earth slumbers
Blessing – The Holy Spirit lead you, give you grace to share that Jesus is the Christ, and the words to tell of the Love of God – and the blessing of God, Spirit, Son and Father remain with you always. Amen
