As followers of JESUS let us enter into the season of Lent with an earnest desire to call ourselves and other believers to prepare for an incredible celebration of the death, burial, and resurrection of Messiah JESUS. From this day forward, through Holy Saturday, let us prepare. And after spending these days of preparation my we celebrate the Resurrection of JESUS like we’ve never celebrated before. Each day we will build our expectation. We will suffer together, sacrifice together, walk through sadness together until that Day of ultimate victory . . . Resurrection Sunday . . . Easter 2014 (April 20)! And we will celebrate with the angels announcing JESUS’ victory over sin and death . . . HE IS NOT HERE . . . HE IS RISEN!
