Welcome sisters and brothers 

As Christians we often refer to or even refer to ourselves as people of the resurrection. it is from this moment of resurrection that the church, the gathering of the people of God who believe in Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour, begins to grow.
It is from this moment that we seek to be the yeast in the societies in which we exist, it is from this moment there we are called to be the salt that brings the flavour of the Kingdom to the world, it is from this moment that we ought to be the light not hidden but visible too all.

We do need to make clear though, what we mean by being people of the resurrection. What Jesus offers to those who follow him, to those who believe in him his new life. It is new life in this world and eternal life in the next. Let us concern ourselves at this moment with the new life of this world. 
The new life we are I should into his life that brings the Kingdom in, his life that makes the Kingdom a reality in the world in which we live. In the Lord’s prayer we pray ‘thy Kingdom come thy will be done on earth as in heaven,’ and this is the time to make those words a reality. 

As people of the resurrection we must live the Kingdom life, we must not just share the Kingdom values of the Kingdom, but we must ensure that they become the actions and beliefs of the societies in which we live.

This Kingdom has values such as justice; righteousness; mercy; forgiveness; grace and above all love. It is a Kingdom that believes that each and every person is a child of God and has equal value before God and that if we devalue one, if we oppress one, if we abuse one then we do it to all and we do it to Jesus.

Our task therefore as people of the resurrection is to make sure that this resurrection life is lived in our churches in our society through it living in our very being. As we go forward from that resurrection day that is what we pledge ourselves to. We pledge ourselves to bring the Kingdom in, to challenge those who would shut the gates of civilization and society against it. 
We pledge to give our all to bring that Kingdom in and to offer this resurrection life to all.

May God bless you all, 
Mark
