Jesus has conquered sin and death. HE IS RISEN. HE IS ALIVE! We are wishing our TWU community a blessed Easter Sunday.
When I saw him, I fell at his feet as if I were dead. But he laid his right hand on me and said, “Don’t be afraid! I am the First and the Last. I am the living one. I died, but look—I am alive forever and ever! And I hold the keys of death and the grave. (Revelation 1:17-18)
: Joel Hansen
Good Friday | Today we reflect on the significance of the cross and Christ's sacrifice. We are reminded that His death paid the cost so that we may experience eternal life in and through Him. We encourage you to take a moment to reflect on the weight of Christ's life, His death, His unfathomable love for you.
MARK 15: 33-38
At noon, darkness came over the whole land until three in the afternoon. And at three in the afternoon Jesus cried out in a loud voice, “Eloi, Eloi, lema sabachthani?” (meaning, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”). When some of those standing near heard this, they said, “Listen, he’s calling Elijah.” Someone ran, filled a sponge with wine vinegar, put it on a staff, and offered it to Jesus to drink. “Now leave him alone. Let’s see if Elijah comes to take him down,” he said.
With a loud cry, Jesus breathed his last.
The curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. And when the centurion, who stood there in front of Jesus, saw how he died, he said, “Surely this man was the Son of God!” #GoodFriday
It has been another year of learning. For some it was your first year at this place, for most you have completed another year towards earning your respective degree.
We pray that during this exam season, in the times of anxiety, stress and fear of the unknown, you find your joy, strength and rest in Him.
“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.”
