Be full of life
“May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.” – Ephesians 3:19
This year’s, Easter Sunday falls on 1 April – or April Fool’s Day. The word “fool” is one with many negative associations. Although we may not mind falling for a prank or a joke on April Fool’s Day, we do not regularly like to be thought of as fools.
There is, however, a difference between being fooled by things of the world and being a fool for Christ.
“Our dedication to Christ makes us look like fools,” Paul writes in 1 Corinthians 4:10. We are often called to be fools for Christ – to be disciples and follow Jesus in ways that might not make sense to the wider world. By nurturing our own discipleship and that of others, we are living our lives to the full.
At Easter, we are reminded of the fullness of life offered through a relationship with Christ and the sacrifice he made for us by dying on the cross. Churches across South Australia will encourage the community to reflect on this message at their services and events over the Easter period.
The Uniting Church SA Easter campaign helps our congregations and faith communities to communicate service and event details, to share in the Easter story, and to raise awareness of the Uniting Church in the wider community.
