CFN CHURCH CONNECTION April 01 – 04

Dear Church Family,

Today is Maundy (“Maundy” means mandate, commandment) Thursday; we remember Jesus Christ washing the feet of His Disciples and giving His commandment to love one another. We remember Jesus’ celebration of the Passover as He broke and shared the bread representing His broken body and as He gave the cup representing His blood that paid the price for our sins.  After the meal, the Disciples accompanied Jesus to the Garden of Gethsemane where Jesus prayed in agony. The Disciples could not stay awake to pray with Him, not even for an hour….

I am calling all Disciples of Jesus Christ: Today, let’s pray for people to be saved; for our lives to glorify the King of Kings and Lord of Lords in all we do and say; for our families and friends to have true relationship with Jesus; for Christ for the Nations Church to be what God has called us to be- a place of Awakening and Revival on CFNI Campus and in our Community; for God’s will to be done on earth as it is in Heaven. 

Spend time in the Bible everyday. With your family, read the accounts of Holy Week and the Crucifixion and Resurrection from Matthew 26-28; Mark 14-16; Luke 22-24; and John 18-20.  Give thanks to God for the unspeakable gift of His Son Jesus Christ. Sing, or play music celebrating the gift of Jesus’ life, death and resurrection.  Come to Church Sunday, ready to join your hearts and your faith as we celebrate Jesus’ Resurrection and as we declare His Resurrection power in our lives! You can take part in a Holy Week devotion at:  https://my.bible.com/users/CFNChurch/reading-plans/19082-holy-week-pause-ponder-pray/subscription/639808156/day/1Rayanna Fields

Children can take part with interactive activities at   https://my.bible.com/kids?utm_campaign=2021-03-bible-app-for-kids-easter&utm_medium=email

We celebrate Jesus Christ today. HE IS ALIVE!!

In His Love,
Pastors Tom and Rayanna Fields
