Easter....Is this just another Sunday????

Is this just another day of the week???? or is this just another Sunday?????

Our day here in Thailand had already begun & with that, the celebration of Easter. We are so blessed to be able to be in this special place, working & serving with special people....."for such a time as this..." (Esther 4:14b). God's timing in all circumstances is always perfect, as Tracey shared yesterday from the book of Esther during our team devotion. Today we celebrate the realization of the fact that we serve a risen Lord . "Christ died for our sins...He was buried, and...He rose again on the third day" (1Cor 15:3-4).

As we will be spending our day worshiping with  a group of people, who have been forced from their homes due to persecution and fear, we are reminded of the freedom to worship that we have in the US - a freedom that too often is taken for granted. While this freedom is an earthly freedom - for those who serve the risen Savior we have eternal freedom from the penalty of sin.

So....is this just another Sunday????
