Easter Message from my friend Gil

Dear Bob,
Easter is a time when we remember the sacrifice of Christ on our behalf. He paid for our sins on the cross and was resurrected to prove that He was our Savior and Lord. I personally cannot go through this season without taking time to picture myself laying in the dirt at the base of the cross with Jesus hanging on it. I am weeping for my sins and self-focus. His drops of blood are landing all around me and on me as I hear Him offer forgiveness. To receive grace from God when I should receive wrath is amazing.

May I never recover from the realization that I do not deserve what God has freely given me in Christ.

In His Service,

Dr. Gil Stieglitz

Roseville, CA 95661

Thank you Gil! But more importantly thank you JESUS!

It's Easter Everyday..

For a recovering American Church pastor, Easter is everyday. Everyday is Resurrection Sunday.

Would you be surprised if I am not all excited about Resurrection Sunday? Why? I'm excited about Resurrection day & everyday in the lives of those I meet.

I'm not excited about Easter Sunday spectaculars because every day is another Easter Spectacular. What we create on Easter Sunday is not match for what Jesus creates everyday.

If you don't see me Sunday, look for me on Monday with the people Jesus came to redeem.
