Pacific Union All God’s People #043, March 30, 2018 Easter Edition



A Special Easter Message from the Pacific Union Conference—

How has the Easter story become meaningful to you? By what means did the story of the trial, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ become personally significant?

In this edition of All God’s People, the focus is on the scenes that make the story so familiar and so important, including that great scene on Sunday morning when the women who followed Jesus were the first to arrive at the empty tomb.

On Sunday morning, the women who had been around the cross when Christ died came to the tomb, and seeing someone that thought to be an attendant, asked where the body of Jesus had been taken. The answer rings out across the centuries with meaning and power: “And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye; for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified. He is not here; for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay. And go quickly, and tell his disciples that he is risen from the dead.” Matthew 28:5-7.

Later in the same chapter, the gospel records this timeless message in verses 19 and 20: “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.”

At Easter, the promise is as vivid as the day it was first spoken, “I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.”
