Epistle Reflection

All we long for is to know the Christ
and the power of his resurrection,
to walk the path he has set before us
and become like him in his death.

New Testament Reading - The Resurrection of Christ

thumb

1Now let me remind you, brothers, of what the Gospel really is, for it has not changed — it is the same Good News I preached to you before. You welcomed it then and still do now, for your faith is squarely built upon this wonderful message; 2and it is this Good News that saves you if you still firmly believe it, unless of course you never really believed it in the first place.

3I passed on to you right from the first what had been told to me, that Christ died for our sins just as the Scriptures said he would, 4and that he was buried, and that three days afterwards he arose from the grave just as the prophets foretold.

Lord, have mercy. E te Ariki, kia aroha mai.
Let our cry come before you, O Lord;
grant us understanding, according to your word.
Christ, have mercy. E te Karaiti, kia aroha mai.
Let your merciful goodness come to us, O Lord;
and your salvation, according to your promise.
Lord, have mercy. E te Ariki, kia aroha mai.
Satisfy those who thirst,

Your kingship has dominion over all,
and with you is our redemption.
