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.” 1 Peter 1:3
If Christ had not risen from the dead, HOPE would have remained with Him in the tomb. But He didn't stay where they placed Him. He is alive! HAPPY EASTER family and friends! God bless you as we celebrate our risen Lord! ♥
Jesus said He would rise. His followers hid in fear with crippled thoughts of what had happened. They hid in anguish and pain. But when they were able to see the Savior, they realized the power of God’s greatness and understood who raised Him from death.
God sent His Son to die for our sin and bring light to the darkness. Jesus rose from the grave that could NOT hold Him! We’re all given the opportunity to be held by the goodness of LOVE and experience a living relationship with Christ.
Life will bring uncertainty. Just like the disciples, we will deal with sadness and fear. But because of Jesus, we WILL find HOPE in the miracle of God’s greatness, as we welcome what's offered to us.
God will open our eyes to the power of His will and remind us He is HERE! He will help us TRUST and witness the JOY of Jesus. Our Savior looked beyond suffering, pain and the punishment of death. He knew JOY was to come, so He focused on the future...
We were created to journey with Jesus and faithfully follow Him. He guides us to the Father. He gave His life for us! There is no greater LOVE! “He died for everyone so that those who receive his new life will no longer live for themselves. Instead, they will live for Christ, who died and was raised for them.” 2 Corinthians 5:15 NLT Let’s celebrate our risen Lord and remember we are treasured and loved. Jesus is the way to the Father!
We must “never be afraid to TRUST a known God to an unknown future.” If we fix our eyes on Jesus, we WILL walk in faith and experience a living relationship with Him. He has paved the way for us to live forever! How could we not be ready to embrace the glory of this day with PRAISE? Jesus loves us! He is deserving of ALL of our LOVE and gratitude. ♥
Dear God, Thank you for the power of Your holiness and LOVE. We will celebrate our risen Lord and never forget what has already been done for EACH one of us. As we offer our praise to the One who died in our place, humble our hearts as we journey with JESUS and leave fear behind. We will focus on the future and find PEACE in the JOY of Your presence. We will welcome the HOPE You’ve placed in our hearts and keep it there forever! Thank you, Lord! Thank you! Amen
