“Jesus Christ died on the cross and resurrected after three days. Let us be happy and full of joy. On this happy day, let us praise and celebrate Jesus, who has resurrected, with one heart.” – Pastor Ock Soo Park
Jesus Christ has taken upon himself all of our sins and shed his blood on the cross. The Lord, who resurrected in three days, gave comfort and happiness to the disciples who were in deep worries. The Lord lives likewise in our hearts today. The Easter service praised the Lord with joy and thankfulness.
This event took place in the Gocheok Sky Dome (Home Field of Professional Baseball Team, Nexen Heroes) located in Seoul. There were over 20, 000 participants from Seoul, Incheon, Daejeon, Daegu, Busan and many more areas around Korea. Over 100 buses had been used to arrive at this venue.
There were 3 services, one at 6am, 10am and 3pm respectively. There were long lines of people and vehicles waiting for entry to the venue, even from the early morning.
“This is the first time that I am participating in the Easter service in Seoul. We took off from Daegu at 11pm and I am so thankful that we were able to make it in time for the early morning service. The two disciples, who were on their way to Emmaus were sad, but only because they did not know that Jesus had resurrected. However, when they met Jesus Christ, they changed. It is because they believed in Jesus who had washed our sins and resurrected. I am so happy of having been able to receive the grace of being able to have service today with the brothers and sisters. Because Jesus is with me, I also enjoy peace and happiness. Thank you.”
