He is Risen!

Easter Sunday

We woke up very early in the morning today to make way to the little hill opposite our church to attend the Easter Sunrise Service. It was a spectacular morning.

Rev Raymond Wong spoke to us from Romans 1:1-6 about the Blessings of the Resurrection.

1 Paul, a servant of Christ Jesus, called to be an apostle, set apart for the gospel of God,
2 which he promised beforehand through his prophets in the holy Scriptures,
3 concerning his Son, who was descended from David according to the flesh
4 and was declared to be the Son of God in power according to the Spirit of holiness by his resurrection from the dead, Jesus Christ our Lord,
5 through whom we have received grace and apostleship to bring about the obedience of faith for the sake of his name among all the nations,
6 including you who are called to belong to Jesus Christ.

1. Easter brings cofirmation of who Christ is
2. Easter gives cancellation of sin's penalty
3. Easter gives us a relationship with God
4. Easter gives us a celebration of life eternal

At the tomb, the angel said, He is not here: He is risen!


p/s: I'll be off to Labuan for work tomorrow.


  1. Wow, you were up early for the sunrise. And I thought our 9 am breakfast was early :) That is a nice summary of what Easter gives us. Have a good trip to Labuan!

  2. Yea ... service at 6.30am in the morning IS early :) good thing we live only minutes away. Actually our house in one of those you see behind the liturgist in the picture!

    Anyway, by the time we waited for the late birds and by the time all were ushered to the hill, we started at 7ish.
