Have a lovely Easter - Resurrection Sunday

Hello Friends ~ I have to say that Easter is the holiday that makes my heart soar. I love Christmas and what it means, it is when God came down in the flesh as baby Jesus. 

He grew up into the man/God who would give His life for the sins of the whole world, because of His great love for us all. He died a cruel death so that we might have life eternal with him, and also have life here with him as we trust him for our daily living. He didn't just die though, he arose from the dead, conquering death. 


On the 21st of this month my pastor gave these 7 verses of Jesus describing who He is in the book of John.

I will share them here.

1. I AM the Bread of Life.  ( John 6:35)

2. I AM the Light of the world  ( John 8:12)

3. I AM the Door  ( John 10:7,9)

4. I AM the Good Shepherd  ( John 10:11,14)

5. I AM the Resurrection and the Life   ( John 11:25-27)

6. I AM the Way, the Truth, and the Life  ( John 14:6) 

7. I AM the True Vine  ( John 15:1-6)

I find the verses from the Old Testament that mention God as I AM very comforting and after that sermon with the above verses, I got up around midnight one night because I was sick from a bad cold and read this verse:  

"Fear not, for I AM with you. 

Do not be dismayed. I AM your God. 

I WILL strengthen you; 

I WILL help you; 

I WILL uphold you with my victorious right hand."

 Isaiah 41:10 (TLB)


 Jesus is The Great I AM, always loving us, wanting a close relationship with us. 

If you don't know Him yet, my prayer is that you will seek Him, learn of Him, let Him speak to your heart, may you hear His gentle, loving whisper telling you,


"Be still, and know that I am God

(Psalms 46:10)


 "Don’t be afraid, for I am with you."

(Isaiah 43:5) 


 Happy Easter

Amen. Jesus is the great I AM. Easter is so joyful because believers celebrate that he died to promise each of us who follow him eternal life with him. The world's great gift.

Thank you for these beautiful words of truth and joy! I also find Easter to be the day that makes my heart soar with joy and near disbelief at the miracle God did, in raising Jesus and in saving us!

Thank you, Lorraine, for sharing your thoughts. I agree with you that while Christmas is wonderful, it is Easter that "makes my heart soar." Love the "I am" verses. I hope you are recovering from your cold, and that you had a perfectly lovely Easter. Keep inspiring us with your faithful life! Hugs, Nancy
