    Men's Department-Easter Message 2015

    Be Renewed by the Resurrection!

     Message from the President of the CBF Men’s Department

     

    The joyous refrain that will be heralded from our churches on Resurrection Sunday is in great contrast to the first resurrection morning, which was greeted with distress, uncertainty and, to an extent, doubt. We may never fully understand the confusion with which the early visitors to Jesus’ tomb were confronted when they discovered that the stone had been rolled away, revealing an empty tomb. But upon hearing the heavenly messengers: “Why do you seek the living among the dead? He is not here but is arisen”, they experienced renewed hope.

    For us, the revelation that Jesus rose from the dead is an accepted fact and key to our redemption; but for the first receivers, the information must have been difficult to accept, for they had watched Jesus die on a cross days earlier, and thy knew that death was final. They dared to believe the impossible — for this was something they did not fully understand or could explain — that Jesus, who had died, was now alive. They left the tomb that morning with overwhelming joy, which compelled them to spread the tidings that “He is alive!”

    Today, we are challenged by those early visitors to the tomb to believe the impossible in our Christian walk. For many of us men of the Caribbean, and more so of the Caribbean Baptist Fellowship, we are challenged by events and attitudes around us, which appear to be hopeless or dead. May the message of Christ’s resurrection bring renewed hope and vision that will transcend the issues which confront us, and energize our witness for our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

    David Serrant (Rev.)

    I am retired and my wife and I live on 1200usd a month. She and I live in China, 1200usd comes to about 8000rmb, that means we live upper mdilde class, two rented homes, a new van, furniture and I can give my wife 1000rmb spending money. If we need more I can work teaching ESL for 6 months at 7500rmb. I have been here 7 years, along with 71,000 outher Americans. In the USA I can barly get by with my wife in a one room rented apartment. Not saying you need come to China, but there are many places around the world that would give you a nice life on little money, Best of luck, Mike and Li
