With tomorrow being PALM SUNDAY, I ask that you especially reflect during this Holy Week upon the greatest sacrificial love ever demonstrated to all humanity, when our Savior and Lord, Jesus Christ, chose to die an excruciating death in our place on the cross. However, He did not remain dead, but rose again the third day, demonstrating His power over death making the way for Eternal Life for those who believe in Him.
Check out Johanna Chernisky singing “The Power of the Cross” and my message “The Cup and the Cross” for Palm Sunday on our website, as well as on Face book. The links are:

“The Cup and the Cross”
When on the cross, He, being Infinite, bore in a finite period of time,
What we, being finite would bear in an Infinite period of time!
Hallelujah for the Cross!
This week one member of our church family went on to be with the Lord. He will be spending his first Easter in Heaven face to face with his Savior! Please remember to pray for his wife and family especially during this very challenging time. (Please refer to an email that was sent out to our church family on Thursday.)
Keep praying: for one another; for those who are ill around the world; those who have lost a loved one; those on the front lines who are truly brave warriors fighting against this pandemic (not all superheroes wear capes); our leaders in the nation and around the world; those who have lost their jobs; especially those who are most vulnerable to this virus; that no one goes hungry and alone; our missionaries; the groups/organizations/businesses who are trying to help; and last but certainly not least, our spiritual leaders and every Christian, that we will do everything we can in the strength of the Lord to be the witnesses that we need to be during these unprecedented days.
Continue to practice the Guidelines to help keep each other healthy, and to stop the spread.
Because He Reigns on High!
