Happy Easter, Christ has Risen.

We joined Barry for our Easter Sunday Sunrise Reflection Session live from outside the Manse.

Reading

Our reading was about the discovery of the empty tomb from John 20:1-10,

The empty tomb
20 Early on the first day of the week, while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene went to the tomb and saw that the stone had been removed from the entrance. So she came running to Simon Peter and the other disciple, the one Jesus loved, and said, ‘They have taken the Lord out of the tomb, and we don’t know where they have put him!’
So Peter and the other disciple started for the tomb. Both were running, but the other disciple outran Peter and reached the tomb first. He bent over and looked in at the strips of linen lying there but did not go in. Then Simon Peter came along behind him and went straight into the tomb. He saw the strips of linen lying there, as well as the cloth that had been wrapped round Jesus’ head. The cloth was still lying in its place, separate from the linen. Finally the other disciple, who had reached the tomb first, also went inside. He saw and believed. (They still did not understand from Scripture that Jesus had to rise from the dead.) 10 Then the disciples went back to where they were staying.

We then shared in an Easter poem, He is Risen Victorious by Cheremiah

He’s risen victorious
He’s all glorious
Seated now at God’s right hand

The angels are curious
Satan is furious
At His redemptive plan

Of Jesus Christ I sing
Prophet, High Priest, and King
He’s given me everything

He’s risen victorious
He’s all glorious
My praise to Him I bring

He’s risen victorious
He’s all glorious
From the rooftop I’ll proclaim

Of God the Great I AM
Who once became a man
The Seed of Abraham

He’s risen victorious
He’s all glorious
What else is there to say

I come now through His Blood
It cleanses like a flood
There is no other way

Through all ages
I will sing His praises
I gladly bow my knee

He’s risen victorious
He’s all glorious
He means the world to me
