If you’re reading this, it’s pretty much
guaranteed you’ve either been disappointed
when someone close to you has broken a
promise – or you’ve made a promise yourself
which you haven’t kept.
As human beings, we mess up. This hurts us,
hurts others – and separates us from God.
It’s the reason our world is in such a mess.
The Easter story provides the climax of
God’s extraordinary answer to this problem
– the death and resurrection of Jesus.
Jesus promised his followers before he was
crucifi ed that it wasn’t the end of the story,
and he would return.
So the empty tomb discovered on what we
now call Easter Sunday wasn’t just Jesus
keeping his promise to his followers. It was
God launching a fresh start for every man,
woman and child for the rest of time –
forgiveness, hope and a real future.
If that sounds like a promise worth
exploring, join our celebrations this Easter –
it could be the best decision you ever make.
