Pastor's Letter

Pastor's Letter - April 2023

I read a story about a little boy who came home from Sunday School one day. His mother asked him, “Son, what did the teacher teach you in Sunday School this morning?”

The little boy said, “We were taught the story of how Moses led Israelites out of the land of Egypt and into the Promised Land.”

The mother told him that she would like to hear the story herself. The little boy said, “All right, I will since you want me to. Mom, it is such a simple story … That night Moses got on the radio, and he told all the Israelites that they were going to come out of Egypt; they were going to get out that night when the signal was given. So, they sent some flares up in the sky as a signal and all the Israelites began their journey out of Egypt. They got in their armoured cars and headed out across the desert there. They had airplanes to give them cover, to give them protection. When they came to the Red Sea, there seemed no way to get across and Pharaoh was coming behind them with his tanks. So, Moses had to come up with an idea. Moses built a pontoon bridge. When he finished, they started walking across that bridge. When they got on the other side, Pharaoh and his tanks were following them and crossing that pontoon bridge. Moses turned to his people and commanded them that they blow up the bridge. The people obeyed and all the Egyptians drowned in the sea. When the bridge covered the last soldier, Moses and his people were safe.”

The mother looked at her son with a puzzled look and said,“Son,did your teacher really tell you that story that way?”

The little boy said, “Well, not exactly mother. If I told this story to you the way my teacher told it to me - you would never believe it.”

Just like the little boy in the story we too make stories up about the birth, life, ministry and death of Jesus Christ. Many times, we fear the society we live in to share the gospel of Jesus as it is in the Bible and we come up with many interpretations as possible, so it doesn’t offend the people. On Easter, we celebrate what is arguably the most important event in all human history: Jesus rising from the dead. Easter story is simple, Jesus came for all of us (include anyone and everyone in this world), He lived and died for our sins. He was crucified and buried. But on the third day He rose again. And He lives forevermore! This story gives everyone hope in a hopeless word.

So, I challenge you to take courage this Easter and let at least one person know the real story behind Easter. For God so loved the world that He gave the only begotten Son, so that everyone believing in Him should not perish, but should have eternal life. (John 3:16).

“Christ is risen" - "He is risen indeed. Alleluia!" Happy Easter.

With love and prayers
