An Easter Message:

It has been a joy for me to write a monthly message for the Bethlehem Star. This is my last and final word.


We are more than conquerors through him who loved us.” (Romans 8:37)

 “More than” is a phrase meaning “greater”.  Being more than conquerors implies we who look to Jesus are greater than any obstacle to divide.  Paul says in Romans “Who will separate us from the love of Christ?  Will hardship, or distress, or persecution, or famine or nakedness or peril or sword?“ (Romans 8:38)

The love of God shown to our Christ in the resurrection is evidence of conquering, overcoming, and being more than even death.

As followers of Christ Jesus, believers, we are more than, greater than, any pandemic, any threat, or any peril. “More than” extends into all areas of life.  We are more than politics, more than political party, more than illness, greater than hate, and more than fear.

Easter means more is coming, and nothing can separate us from the love of God in Christ our risen Lord.
