Happy Easter

Good morning Friends ~ Today is a celebration of Love, Life, Resurrection, New Beginnings.

Last night we decided to watch The Passion again, since it was the evening before Easter. This movie really touches our hearts and souls, more than words can say.

God, as Jesus the man, came down from His heavenly kingdom and gave His life for us, so that we'd be free.

And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness:
God was manifest in the flesh,
justified in the Spirit,
seen of angels,
preached unto the Gentiles,
believed on in the world,
received up into glory.
1Ti 3:16

But he was wounded for our transgressions,
he was bruised for our iniquities:
the chastisement of our peace was upon him;
and with his stripes we are healed.
Isa 53:5

Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
Joh 15:13

Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?
shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution,
or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?

...neither death, nor life, nor angels,
nor principalities, nor powers,
nor things present, nor things to come,
Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature,
shall be able to separate us from the love of God,
which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Rom 8:35-39

Jesus said, I am the way, the truth, and the life:
no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
John 14:6

That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus,
and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead,
thou shalt be saved.

For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness;
and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

For the scripture saith,
Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.
Rom 10:9-11


I wish you all a lovely Easter day.
One filled with love, joy and hope.
May you feel the love and peace of God
surrounding you today and each and every day of your lives.

My favorite Easter hymn.

Up From the Grave He Arose.

Thank you so much for your sharing of this blog. God is so good and our salvation is so wonderful. As our minister shared today, that Easter is a time to hit our reset button and to remember how fortunate that we are.
