Easter Sunday Communion

This past Easter Sunday, we were privileged as a congregation to celebrate the Lord's Supper (Communion) together. What a wonderful combination! The sermon was based on Matthew 28:1-10. The message of the angels to the women looking for Jesus was "Fear not" (v.5), "he is risen, as he said" (v.6), "he goeth before you into Galilee" (v.7). Jesus then meets them on the way saying "all hail" (v.9), or 'good day'. He also says "be not afraid" (v.10).

What gracious and comforting words Jesus gives to His weak, simple followers, and also to all believers today. Despite our doubts, fears, and shortcomings, He comes to us with words of hope and encouragement. He speaks through His Word and Spirit to a sinful, undeserving people. Thank-you Jesus.

I would like to write more, but typing is very slow and physically draining, hence this message is brief.



  1. It was a wonderful service ; God is so good.

  2. Thank you, Brother, for your effort, your message, and your continual inspiration. May God give you an increasing experience of sweet communion with Our Lord. Psalm 73:23-26!

  3. Jack, the words are simple, but how full of comfort! Fear not- He knows our fearful hearts!
    He is risen- And because He lives we shall live also! He goeth before you into Galilee- He has gone to prepare a place for you- All hail or good day- This is the day that the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it! Be not afraid,- Let not your heart be troubled, nor let it be afraid, In my Father's house are many mansions, I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there may ye be also. Then we shall ever be with The Lord!
    God bless you Jack!
