The resurrection of Jesus is our hope. Paul clearly declared in 1 Corinthians 15:17 that if Christ has not been raised, our faith is futile; we are still in our sins. Because of what took place in that Easter morning, it is now possible for us to experience newness of life. Our faith in the risen Christ enables us to live a life that is free from condemnation of sin, “if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has passed away, behold the new has come” (I Cor. 5:17).
May we continue to live and proclaim that “newness” we experienced in Christ. It is our prayer that as we face more challenges, the Assemblies of God in the Philippines remain faithful to its call to preach Christ and the power of His resurrection. Happy Easter!
