HE IS RISEN INDEED!
Happy Resurrection Sunday! It’s a beautiful morning here on the Chesapeake and we’re looking forward to celebrating our Lord’s resurrection with the family of our co-workers, the Walkers. However, last evening as I sat and watched the sunset I was struck again with the awesome nature of God’s love and faithfulness to us~in the Big Things – our salvation through Christ, and in the Little Things – the beauty that he paints all around us each and every day.
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—kept in heaven for you…
I Peter 1:3&4 (NIV)
and said just a little differently in The Message
What a God we have! And how fortunate we are to have him, this Father of our Master Jesus! Because Jesus was raised from the dead, we’ve been given a brand-new life and have everything to live for, including a future in heaven–and the future starts now!
