Believe - Lent Devotional @ Walton United Church, Oakville, Ontario

Hallelujah, Christ is risen!
Hallelujah! Christ is risen!

Easter Sunday is a day of triumph and joy, an outpouring of new life and hope. On this day we celebrate the victory of Christ over death and sin, and affirm the transformation that victory brings to our lives.

We proclaim that God has not left us alone, but is with us in this world. We joyfully declare that, along with the unmerited redemption Jesus secured for us, we are also blessed with the comforting, the enabling and the empowering strength provided by the Holy Spirit for us in this world.

As we receive and give thanks for all these blessings God has generously provided for us, as we celebrate the joy of this day, let us also look for the many ways we can share this joy with those around us, and live and love as servants of the Holy Spirit in the world today.

Triumphant God, Risen Christ, Empowering Spirit, all praise be to Your Holy name. Inspire me with the knowledge that Your love conquers all, comfort me with the confidence that I will never be separated from Your love, and nurture me with the assurance that You are with me in this world always, until the end of time. Amen.

John 20:21-22

Jesus said to them again, “Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, so I send you.” When he had said this, he breathed on them and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit.”.

Thank you for joining us on this prayerful
journey of reflection through Lent.
