Easter 2021: An Opportunity for the Gospel

by Greg Laurie on Mar 29, 2021

We’re quickly approaching another Easter, and this is an opportunity to bring the gospel to the people in our lives—probably a bigger opportunity than ever before. For the first time, we’re premiering an online event we’re calling an Easter Cinematic Experience (you can get a sneak peek in the video above).

In addition to stunning cinematography and worship sessions from beautiful sites, I’ll be sharing a message called “The Day that Changed the World” and giving a gospel invitation.

Only a short year ago, we had to close the doors of our church and, temporarily, stream services exclusively online. (I wrote about that experience here.)

Yet because of what our nation was facing at the time, we found a ready audience for the gospel message that season as millions tuned in to Harvest at Home—even the president had announced he was tuning in to our Palm Sunday service. And we saw thousands of people make professions of faith in Jesus Christ.

Here’s just one testimony from our outreach during that time:

Thank you, Pastor Greg. I have been an atheist for 15 years and lately I’ve been questioning everything. I saw on FB that the president said he was tuning into Greg Laurie so I decided to tune in and right when Greg said, “Someone is watching who is scared of death and doesn’t know if they’re right with God.” I started to cry. I accepted Jesus into my heart. Thank you.

Easter changes everything

There’s life-changing power in the message of Easter.

Easter is, of course, the celebration of Jesus rising from the dead. The resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead changed everything. His followers went from being a group of ragtag fisherman, tax collectors, and zealots to being courageous preachers who literally turned their world upside down.

All the apostles, with the exception of John, also died the death of a martyr. Surely, if the resurrection were not true, as some would claim, you would think that at least one of them would have broken ranks and said, “It was all a hoax. We made it up!”

But not one of them did, because they could not deny what had transformed their lives.

The fact of the historical resurrection of Jesus transforms lives today.

So wherever you are, I hope you’ll worship with us this Easter season as we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus on Harvest at Home. We’re preparing a brand-new cinematic experience with music and a clear, straightforward gospel presentation.

But don’t just join in! Invite a “CEO” with you if you can. You know, CEO: one of those people who typically only go to church on Christmas and Easter only. Let’s use Easter 2021 as an open door to share the hope of Christ!

Let us know you’ll be joining in! RSVP below.
