Stories, thoughts and reflections on the Bible from the WSFC Staff.
This week we want to take a break from a series of emails called “The Kingdom Prayer Plan” to send you a special message and personal invite to one of our Easter gatherings this weekend.
I was reading in my devotions today from 1 Corinthians 15. In it the Apostle Paul says, “Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scripture, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures.” This statement is widely accepted as the earliest church creed, which began circulating as early as AD 30-36, just shortly after Jesus’ resurrection. The early date of this creed proves that the church did not corrupt the truth about Jesus with folklores and fables, but rather, just clung to the plain and undeniable facts of Jesus’ death, burial, and resurrection.
In other words: this resurrection stuff is TRUE! Over the years many have tried to convolute the truth with random theories and speculation regarding the resurrection, but nothing can refute an enormous rock that was moved, an empty tomb, burial cloths that were left behind and over 500 eyewitnesses to the risen Christ!
Make no mistake: Jesus is Alive.
It is this truth that we are celebrating this weekend at West Salem Foursquare. I invite you to join us for one of our 5 worship gatherings. We have identical services at 5:00 and 7:00 pm on Saturday evening, as well as Sunday morning at 8:00, 9:30 and 11:15 am.
This weekend we are launching a teaching series called “Can You See Him?” where together we will take a good look at Jesus through lens of the Book of Revelation. We also have a corresponding Small Group DVD & Guide that goes with the series. We invite you to get a group of people together, pop in the DVD and grow together. For more information contact Joan (email@example.com), or just stop by Connecting Point on the weekends or the church office during the week to pick up your Can You See Him? SG2gO (Small Group to Go) Box.
P.S. He is Risen.
P.P.S. He is Risen Indeed!
