Easter

EasterI decided it might be best to keep the blog short this week. After all, you’re probably busy enough already, right?

So let me just say this: Go ahead and enjoy the taste of the chocolates or the fragrance of the lilies or whatever other traditions you may have for Easter. Those can be good and fun and even meaningful. But remember, the whole point of this day is to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus from the grave. His death and resurrection mean victory for you and me! His death and resurrection give meaning and purpose to every aspect of life.

“If Christ has not been raised, then our preaching is in vain and your faith is in vain… if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile and you are still in your sins. Then those also who have fallen asleep in Christ have perished. If in this life only we have hoped in Christ, we are of all people most to be pitied. But in fact Christ has been raised from the dead…” (1 Corinthians 15:14, 17-20)

Hallelujah!!! He is risen!!!

He is risen indeed.

  1. He is risen indeed! Romans 8:11 (NKJV)
    11 But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.
    A blessed Easter to you and yours!

    What a wonderful thought, his resurrection breaths life into an otherwise meaningless faith! I’m enjoying his good gifts, from great to small this Easter. I trust you are as well. Enjoy that little granddaughter all frilly and sweet this spring!
