Just before Easter Sunday 2016, the following message was posted on our Church’s Signboard:


the Sonrise

Every Day! 

Signboard 2016-03-26 Sonrise _IMG_3152




If it’s a clear morning, we might be able to experience the Sun Rise, but the Son of God is risen every day!

Sunrise on the Sea of Galilee

Sunrise on the Sea of Galilee

Have you ever seen a sunrise, or sunset, or rainbow, or some other view of God’s beautiful creation without “Experiencing” it?  Can you see a sunrise and just walk away without noticing?  Revelations like these usually make a lasting impact.  You tell your friends about it.  You take a picture.  You might even join all of your other friends who posted the same sunrise on facebook.  When nature publishes a new work of beauty, it causes a stir.


Son Rise

But what about the Sonrise?  Is the miracle of Christ’s resurrection just something you recognize as a historical fact (accepted on faith)?  Or has it changed you?  We begin every morning with the truth that Jesus died and rose from the dead to restore our relationship with God.  You don’t have to wait until Easter morning for the beauty of that Sonrise!  Does it constantly make a lasting impact on you?



God’s Promises

The rainbow is God’s way of promising that He won’t again flood the earth.  It’s also a reminder of His continual presence and love.  Every time we see one, we can marvel not only at the beauty of creation, but also at the glory of God.

But in the SON Rise, God has made some powerful promises in His Word…

Ephesians 5:13-14

But everything exposed by the light becomes visible,  for it is light that makes everything visible. This is why it is said:  “Wake up, O sleeper,  rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.

John 11:25-26

Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies;  and whoever lives and believes in me will never die…”

1 Corinthians 15:21-23

For since death came through a man, the resurrection of the dead comes also through a man.  For as in Adam all die, so in Christ all will be made alive.

Romans 6:5-7

If we have been united with him like this in his death, we will certainly also be united with him in his resurrection.  For we know that our old self was crucified with him so that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves to sin—  because anyone who has died has been freed from sin.


Rainbow over Steeple

You can’t drive by a rainbow and simply check it off as a natural phenomenon.  Rainbows, Sunsets, and Sunrises all leave a lasting impact.  You don’t just see them; you Experience them.

When you think of Easter, what makes an impact?  What parts of Easter do your “Experience”?  What parts get chalked up to tradition and get packed away for next year?

In His rainbow- and even more in His Son Rise, God has promised forgiveness, relationship, and true Life in Him.

Have you experienced God’s magnificent gift of His SON Rise???
