Happy Easter!

Yesterday we celebrated Easter in many of our churches, fellowships, and homes. What a joyful time, and a very special time to contemplate the love that sent Jesus Christ to the cross, to die in our place. God raised Him from the grave, and that is why we have the hope and the joy of our salvation!

I hope that all of you are spending time with your families and friends, rejoicing in His mercy and love. Let us all remember:
 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, and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade. This inheritance is kept in heaven for you, who through faith are shielded by God’s power until the coming of the salvation that is ready to be revealed in the last time. In all this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials.  (I Peter 1:3-6)
And these verses, too:
Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. 17 For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. 18 So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal. (II Corinthians 4:16-18)

He is risen!

See you next week!
