Celebration with Confirmation

Mario and I, along with Devin and Judy Doherty, would like to take this time to join you in spirit as you celebrate the events of this weekend.

We pray through this day that is called Good Friday, and are tempted to feel guilty or sad for being the cause of our Jesus hanging on a cross and suffering our punishment. As Christians, we must not give into the condemnation. We must rejoice in God’s perfect and merciful plan to offer us forgiveness for sins and the ability to be saved through Christ’s complete work on that cross. God is pleased (Col.1:19) and Christ was willing (1 John 3:16), and so we have every reason to rejoice! Doing otherwise would be placing our reasoning and logic above God’s, and would not glorify Him. That is AMAZING! The agape love of God for us is AMAZING! We have a hard time reconciling it, but God tells us to come like a child, with the same innocent trust and confidence of a child (Mk.10:15). He tells us there is no condemnation in Christ Jesus (Rom. 8:1)!

Then on Sunday, we celebrate with fresh eyes and open hearts, as we allow the truth of the rising of our Savior to be as new and relevant as if it is the first announcement of this event! So, we say to you all, may you have a blessed Good Friday and a very joy-filled Easter!

Together we thank God that the largest part of the purpose and vision of Training Hearts for Jesus ministry is to bring up a new generation to know and understand these truths in the very deepest part of their hearts. That they, who may be redeemed, will be purified for Him, a people for His own possession who will be zealous for good works (Titus 2:14), and without the work of Christ, which we truly celebrate this day and the days to follow, are our only hope for this purification and possession to occur, both for us and our children. Praise the Lord!!
God is good and everything He does is good!!

In that, we rejoice with you in our Jesus,
Mario and Sharon Cannavo and Devin and Judy Doherty
