  • July 11, 2014 - Reflections

    By Jean S. Horner
    The other day while walking down a corridor in a public building, I saw what appeared to be someone walking toward me. On coming closer, I found it was my own reflection in a huge mirror. For a moment it frightened me. Somehow a full-length reflection of one’s self is a startling thing. ...




A Day at a Time: It's Always Easter

By Scott Harrup
March 28 2010

You’re right. Today is not Easter Sunday. So why publish a Palm Sunday feature last week and the Easter Evangel this week? Because our World Missions Edition comes out the first week of the month, and Easter Sunday coincides with the April edition this year.

But that’s not a problem. In reality, an Easter Sunday World Missions Edition reflects a powerful Easter message. The partnership between the Pentecostal Evangel and Assemblies of God World Missions has allowed millions of people around the world to hear the gospel message. Our World Missions Editions connect hundreds of thousands of readers with the ministries of AG missionaries across the globe. Those readers support those ministries in prayer and with their finances, effectively multiplying the gospel footprint of missionaries and local churches.

As you will read in Charlie Self’s article, “Easter Changes Everything,” the message of Christ’s resurrection brings about a lifelong transformation. So, whatever day of the year a believer celebrates the Resurrection becomes another Easter.

Easter reminds us that the highest human aspirations, creativity and art find their meaning in the life Christ gives. Ron DiCianni shares an Easter experience in his article and kindly allowed his painting to be reproduced on this cover and inside.

Easter can also be a healing influence throughout the year. Christi Foster writes movingly about her family’s loss of son Craig and the power of the Cross.

If you’re looking forward to Easter Sunday, hang onto this Evangel. Revisit its pages throughout the week, anticipating what God can do in your life throughout 2010. It’s always Easter. The promise of the Resurrection offers you the joy of serving your Creator every day and watching as He guides your abilities and dreams into their most effective expression for the Kingdom.

“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade” (1 Peter 1:3,4, NIV).
