Virginia Conference UpdatesDonateWorshipInformation

Death has been swallowed up in victory. That is the crux of the Gospel that makes Easter the greatest day in our faith. Resurrection is the defeat of the thing that our world teaches us to fear the most. If the thing to fear the most has been defeated, what left is there to fear at all? Yet, our world seems to feed off of fear. Those seeking power stoke fear in order to control others. Fear separates and divides us. Especially in the last year of uncertainty, the language of fear invades much of our conversation, even within the church. Fear controls budgeting, mission dreaming, and even sharing the glorious Word of God with those around us. Fear has a hold of us all, even though Jesus defeated it by leaving the tomb.

We cannot let fear win, for it has already been defeated. Celebrate the wonder, mystery, and miracle of Easter. Claim resurrection! Be God’s people for a hurting world. We can do this, despite any difficulty or fear, for “you must stand firm, unshakable, excelling in the works of the Lord always, because you know that your labor isn’t going to be for nothing in the Lord.”
