Let us preach the message with clarity and conviction
"Let's put the Jesus story center stage.Let's tell the story in a way that grabs the hearts of listeners..." At our church:The last week of Jesus' life is relived through our services in song. His betrayal, His trial.We relive His crucifixion,lament His death, and participate in His burial with a procession to the tomb.We then gather before midnight on Holy Saturday in anticipation of His resurrection. In the dark sanctuary our priest shouts "Come receive the light!" as he lights our candles. We sing and shout "Christ is risen!"After singing praises, the homily of St. John Chrysostom is read which ends," Christ is risen, and you are overthrown.Christ is risen, and the demons are fallen. Christ is risen, and the angels rejoice.Christ is risen, and life reigns. Christ is risen, and not one dead remains in the grave.For Christ, being risen from the dead,is become the first fruits of those who have fallen asleep.To Him be glory and dominion unto ages of ages. Amen." And communion follows.

AN EXCELLENT ARTICLE TO INSPIRE THE PREACHERS,TO PRESENT THE SIMPLE FACTS OF THE WORD. GOD THE HOLY SPIRIT WILL USE SUCH TO CONVICT & CONVINCE THE HEARERS TO RESPOND BY FAITH & REPENTANCE TO THE MESSAGE OF THE GOSPEL AS FOUND IN GOD'S LOVE THROUGH JESUS CHRIST WHO DIED FOR OUR ALL BY THE SHEDDING OF HIS BLOOD ON CROSS AND AROSE FROM THE GRAVE TO GIVE US LIFE & HOPE FOR ALL ETERNITY.
