Easter Sunday Rhythm | April 8, 2012

Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever. In my distress I prayed to the Lord, and the Lord answered me and set me free. Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever. The Lord is my strength and my song; he has given me victory. Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever. I will not die; instead, I will live to tell what the Lord has done. Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever. The stone that the builders rejected has now become the cornerstone. This is the Lord’s doing, and it is wonderful to see. This is the day the Lord has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it. – Psalm 118:1, 5, 14, 17, 22-24

We hope that you can join us for both Good Friday and Easter Sunday, as we conclude the season of Lent, culminating in the death and resurrection of our savior, Jesus Christ. Robert Greene will be preaching out of 1 John 3:19-24, and if you have missed any previous weeks on 1 John, you can listen to and download sermons here. Please use the remaining days of this Holy Week and weekend to remind yourself that the way of the Cross is not just a matter of historical record, but an invitation for us to participate in the sufferings, death, and resurrection of Jesus. We would encourage you to take some time before Sunday to pray for our two gatherings this Easter Sunday. That many unbelievers would hear the Gospel and be changed. Pray that we would come prepared to expressively worship God together through the songs we sing, the prayers we pray, the scriptures we read, and the communion we partake in. Using the 2012 Redemption Hill Lent Guide as a reference, thank God that he sent Jesus to reconcile us to himself, despite our unfaithfulness. Pray that Christ would transform us into a community of servants, that would see his glory and expand his kingdom through humbly serving the needs of Richmond and the world.

Here are the songs that we will sing together this Resurrection Sunday:

  • In Christ Alone by Keith Getty and Stuart Townend.
  • Hail the Day that Christ Arose by Charles Wesley, Steve Cook, Vicki Cook. You can read more about this song and why we sing it by clicking here.

  • See you Sunday!
